Nothing to Make on Monday

I have a bit of a confession.  I haven't really cooked in about 4 or 5 days.  I have kind of cooked.  But not really cooked. 

For Thursday night, we had breakfast for dinner.  Diced potatoes, chopped smoked breakfast sausage and some scrambled eggs. 

Big Mike threw it into a tortilla. 

I ate it out of a bowl. 

Maddie ate it straight off of the floor. 

Friday night, I took a roll of Pillsbury Pizza Dough out of my refrigerator.  I poured some Buffalo wing sauce on it and threw some diced chicken breast on top of that.  After a generous sprinkling of shredded cheese, it went into the oven for about 15 minutes.  When it came out, I drizzled Ranch dressing over the top of it. 

Viola!  Buffalo chicken pizza

That was dinner before our trip to the Quakes game.  And our snack the next day.  I love cold pizza. 

Oh, and Maddie ate some off of the floor. 

On Saturday night, I took a can of enchilada sauce and a can of shredded chicken out of the pantry, some corn tortillas and some shredded cheese out of the fridge and made enchiladas.  Simple.  Delicious.  They make Big Mike happy. 

Once again, Maddie ate some off of the floor. 

Sunday night, a few friends of ours invited us for an Italian dinner at their house.  We went, of course, because it means we don't have to cook. 

Tonight, my parents have invited us for a little backyard BBQ.  We'll go, of course, because it means we don't have to cook. 

(For the record, I don't feed Maddie everything off of the floor.  The little punk is quick and we're still teaching her the "leave it" command.  Contrary to popular belief, she eats dog food from a bowl.) 

So here's a re-cap.  To make what I just mentioned above, you're going to need the following:
  • Eggs
  • Potatoes
  • Sausage (smoked, breakfast, turkey, etc.)
  • Shredded cheese
  • Tortillas
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
  • Pillsbury Pizza Dough
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • Leftover diced chicken breast
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Enchilada sauce
  • Shredded chicken in a can
Most of us have some of that in our pantry or fridge at any given time.  You can make it as healthy (light sour cream? low fat sausage?) or as naughty (LOTS of cheese and ranch dressing!) as you want it to be.  It also makes plenty for left overs and enchiladas and pizza make great leftovers!!!

LOL!! I made buffalo chicken pizza last night!!! The recipe I had was use the pizza dough, bake it for a few minutes, spread a layer of ranch on the dough then top it with buffalo wing sauce drenched chicken and top with mozzarella and then bake another 10 minutes. It was pretty tasty!
