Pizza almost as fast as take-out
We love pizza but takeout pizza gets pretty darn expensive and, I'm sorry to say, I don't really like it much (I'm from Boston where you get really good Italian pizza!)--but homemade can take a while and I'm not usually up for it after a busy day of work and driving the girls to after-school activities. However, thanks to Trader Joes I get the best of both worlds. Take their premade whole wheat pizza dough, a jar of marinara sauce and a bag of shredded cheese (we like the mix of mozzarella, cheddar, and jack--or the nondairy equivalent). Add some veggies and herbs from our garden, and voila . . . a quick and delicious dinner. Better yet, it's easy enough for my kids to make, while I have a cup of tea and catch up on emails!
