Probably my favorite pizza to get out is BBQ chicken pizza. It’s my standard, go-to slice. I love the sweet and tangy sauce, the cheese, the whole shebang. I thought, “What if I healthify this?!” And by healthify I mean keep the cheese and BBQ sauce (obviously), but add some nutty crust that resembles one of those fluffy, doughy, pizza shop slices.
I’m a sucker for Chinese food. It’s one of those indulgences that are few and far between because rice is such a big part of it. I just love that saucy goodness that coats the rice and it’s so sweet and salty and savory.
So I’ve been running a bit more. I was (am) a swimmer and land sports/land coordination isn’t totally my thing. But, I love the concept of just tying up your shoes, grabbing your keys, and going for a run. Ah, the freedom. Wiiiith a double stroller, two children, two sets of snacks, two sippies, and toys, of course, to keep everyone happy.
Remember at the end of my post two posts back where I asked what else we can put that Thai pesto on? Well, this. This is the brainchild of my dear sweet husband and damn was it on point. He went to great lengths to ensure his idea came to fruition, from shelling and deveining the shrimp, to running to the food store (literally running) to get all the ingredients, to providing moral support during preparation. He’s pretty hunky too.
Let me start by saying this isn’t the prettiest recipe I’ve ever made, but man, it was tasty!! I’ve never had shepherd’s pie before. I didn’t even know what it was until my friend (hi Katherine!) offered to make it for me after Nolan was born. It kind of sounded magical. Like, everything I love but all mixed together in one dish.
