The joys of a well-stocked freezer

The original plan for tonight was for grilled steak sandwiches. They look delicious but the weather forecast called for pouring rain all evening – not very conducive to grilling. I was in my office today so facing an hour commute home and a trip to the grocery store to get the steak. I checked in in with Keith at lunch and we agreed to change plans. He suggested we order delivery but I know how slow that is when it rains.

I started thinking about the freezer. I knew there was a pizza crust so I started from that. Then I remembered that there are frozen shrimp and that there is fresh pesto in the fridge (my basil has done really well this year and I’ve made two big batches of pesto.) A shrimp and pesto pizza will be just the thing to cook inside! Samantha doesn’t like shrimp but she remembered that there was still some chicken left from the chicken hummus bowls so she had chicken on hers.

Easy and delicious!

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
