What’s wrong with that?  Oh, I know.  Maybe because I had breakfast pizza and pizza for lunch!  My office had their annual support staff breakfast.  My first thought was to make bagels, but then I thought breakfast pizza would be better.  I used my simple dough for this one:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons loose) yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Mix the warm water with the yeast.  Let sit for five minutes.  Add flour and salt and mix until combined.  Place in a bowl with oil and since I made it last night, I just decided to keep it on the counter overnight to rise.  So simple – this is how the dough looks in 6 minutes.


I realized I didn’t have bacon or enough mozzarella cheese being the end of the week, so I improvised.  I used my homemade marinara, then did chopped ham, and a mixture of cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese. 


Then I just cracked four eggs over the top!


Bake at 425 degrees for about 10 – 15 minutes, depending on your stove.  Since I cooked this at home and brought it to work, I wished I would have done the egg part at my office kitchen – but I think everyone liked it!   Then I didn’t realize the firm was going to buy pizza for lunch so you’ll have to come back tomorrow for my copy cat Panera Bread broccoli cheese soup!  OMG, it tastes EXACTLY like Panera’s!  I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.  So since I had pizza for breakfast and pizza for lunch, pretty sure I wasn’t going to do pizza for dinner!

So I stopped by my local grocery store to see what was in their 50% meat case – basically meat that needs to be sold (or frozen) by today’s date.  I scored!  I got a 1.61 pound porterhouse steak for $6!!!


And on the side I bought shell on butterfly shrimp – just 1/4 of a pound that cost about $4.  Wow, were these good!  I cooked them on the grill in a cast iron skillet with about 2 tablespoons of the scampi butter!  I kept them off the heat, just until the butter melted.


Then I finished them off on the grill, shrimp side down:


My plate had the filet portion of the porterhouse, with 3 shrimp and shredded zucchini I sauteed on top of the stove as everything else cooked on the grill.  After I took this picture I gave the other two shrimp to Tony since he had more steak than me – and still enough steak leftover to have steak and eggs tomorrow!  Such a deal for $6!



And the sun came out!  It’s been so rainy in the Chicagoland area lately, that this really made the night – although a bit on the chilly side – which I love so I am not complaining at all!  And here is our dog Ed – patiently waiting for any leftovers that may come his way!


I am off to watch the remainder of the Sox game with Tony – we were losing last time I checked!  Tomorrow’s plans are for me to clean out our gutters – um, I believe we have a garden growing in our gutters!  And my SIL and her family is coming over for her birthday on Sunday, so there is some cake making in my near future – Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!   This is not low fat at all, but so moist and delicious – it may be insulin worthy! 😀

Have a good Friday night all and I’ll see you tomorrow night! 😀
