Pizza, Salad

This post feels like cheating, but I realize, to take the pressure off myself, that I said I’d keep track of what we ate, not what I cooked, and that’s it’s about the meal, and not the making of the meal.

Rationalizing aside, the menu: California Pizza Kitchen Sicilian pizza * farmers market salad

Prepare pizza according to package directions. When you take it out of the oven, drizzle olive oil over and grind crushed red pepper flakes over. Use farmers market ingredients from crisper for salad: greens, cherry tomatoes, red pepper, salad pepper, cukes. Empty drawers completely for farmers market run the next morning. Drizzle with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette.
