The Most Amazing Leftovers Ever!

Sometime last week, I was faced with making dinner for my family knowing my fridge was very bare since it had been ages since I had been shopping.  I can’t stand it when all of a sudden it is 5:00 pm and I’m frantically trying to throw something edible together.  I am usually very well organized with my menu/shopping but have I mentioned how crazy life has been the past few weeks?  

I’ve been hesitant to post it on my blog, but no time like the present.  I am officially on the Marshall, Minnesota ballot on November 4th.  I am one of five people running for one open school board spot.  When a friend of mine saw me the other day, she told me that this only confirms that I am truly crazy.  Probably so, but public education has always been a passion of mine and so I went for it.  So now you can see my lawn signs around town, I’m in the homecoming parade next week, I’ve got a campaign website, I’m printing a ton of flyers and my children are embarrassed beyond belief.
My campaign has been completely engulfing my time and energy while my dinner table pays the price.  Even so, this pizza that was thrown together out of desperation one night was 100% completely amazing.  I couldn’t stop eating it and wished I had more leftovers in my fridge to make a couple more as bedtime snacks!
