Pizza dough might not be my thing! Why do we have to cook EVERYTHING from scratch? We don’t, there’s just this expectation that to be a serious adult you have to make things from scratch. Even if you work 50-60 hours a week.
I’m going to try and remember that I don’t have to make and bake EVERYTHING from scratch. Last night, I actually used crusts Phil and I bought at the farmer’s market on Saturday. We were supporting local and it was easy-peasy making pizza since we had necessary ingredients (which was very appreciated since I was exhausted from the party happenings and weekend guests and softball – I had zero energy). Tonight I plan on grilling/baking some frozen fish (with some delicious sounding seasoning) but using farmers market purchased potatoes as a side. Still totally acceptable, right?
This topic (homemade vs. store/market purchased) reminds me of a “My Drunk Kitchen” episode -which also happens to be my favorite:
In particular this part, which you can also have on a t-shirt (want):
I’ll still make chocolate chip cookies from scratch but I’m not going to be an expert baker. I’m just not. ONE of these days I’ll make them as well as my Grandma Sue does. Maaaaybe.
*Yes, I referred to making pizza as a SITUATION.
