I think we're going to have a 4-cheese pizza. I have dough thawing in the fridge. I roll out the dough (it's a thin crust recipe), put a thin layer of cream cheese, then basil pesto (my basil is going gangbusters this spring... yay!!) and finally mozzarella, shredded gouda, and bits of goat cheese. I guess it would be 5 cheese, since we put parmigiano-reggiano on before we eat.

Fridge is overflowing so leftover meatloaf for us and there's corn, asparagus, mac'n'cheese, a few chicken nuggets, some rice. I'll set it all out on the counter and people can buffet it.

I love these kinds of meals. We do this also when we have a lot of leftovers. I know some people don't like leftovers, but we waste nothing. Even if it's a few bites of green beans, we'll keep them and then one night I'll pull it all out and let people pick and choose. It's actually one of our favorite meals.

Leftovers have always been one of my favorite breakfasts!

We will be having ham and beans tonight. I hope I have what we need for cornbread because it just wouldn't be the same without it.
