My boy asked for spaghetti and I'm sick of the same-old, same-old of pairing it with a big salad, roasted zuchinni & yellow squash, and making garlic bread.

Anyone have an idea of other sides? (keep in mind, no cheese)

pizza(s)

I just stirred together a no-knead pizza batter that will make three pizza's. I may make one each the next three nights and have plenty of leftovers for the weekend. I have some fresh mozz waiting to be shredded, will make some sausage, hope to carmelize some onions and garlic and will have to poke around and see what else I find.

oh yeah, what inspired this....I ran out of pizza sauce months ago, or so I thought. As I was rearranging the canned goods shelf, I found 2 one pint jars of pizza sauce

I wish someone would come over and cook dinner for me. Well since that isn't likely to happen I guess it will be some kind of take out.

Going camping this weekend so it'll be eat up the leftovers before we go away. BTW, if anyone is into college football, watch ABC Sat. for the So.Cal-UVA game. I'll wave to ya from the nosebleed section and keep yer eyes out for a skinny, blond,wearing glasses and playing a sousaphone in the UVA band. That would be my youngest!
