Forgive me, but I don't remember the brand of sausage... I buy it in a large package and freeze it in smaller portions.

I started the cabbage/sausage/potato dinner in the crock-pot... I had the day off, and it was hot in here this afternoon...... catching up on laundry earlier. I finished both the potato and sausage/cabbage in the oven.

The peeled, sliced red potato was just tossed in oil, salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders. The cabbage/sausage was tossed in oil, cider vinegar, and caraway seed.

That pizza was a store-bought frozen crust. Yes, I have made my own pizza dough. I just didn't want to fuss with it today.

my dinner... vegie pizza... I didn't want to fuss...only used cucumber and tomato.....mozz and havarti cheeses.... the cheese oozed too much, but that's okay!
All looking very good as usual VB Do you make your own tomato sauce for the base? I know you said you used shop bought pizza base but do you think the shop bought ones are still pretty good or much much better to make your own?

Thanks for sharing

Love that quitting chocolate quote. I saw the phrase on an small sign displayed at a small cafe in Sedona, AZ. Unfortunately the sign wasn't for sale, I'd have bought it. I do have a photograph of it, it's cute, maybe I'll print it and hang it in my kitchen. Do I detect you are a chocolate lover??? Trader Joe's has terrific truffles. DH and have fruit and chocolate, 2 pieces each, for desert most nights. Weight watchers? Yes!! But not deprived. Blessings,

I didn't make my own sauce. The only time I have made my own sauce is when I was added spices, etc to a tomato sauce. I have never made it from scratch. And.... Pizza crust is always better homemade. I have have made it before from scratch, and it has a much better flavor. I just didn't have the energy for that yesterday.
