So, I did save $150 that first week by not buying groceries, and then $75 the next week. I have rediscovered coupons!
Also, I invented a recipe using some of the stuff I had in the house when I was saving $150 by not eating out or food shopping this week: Naan Pizza.
- One piece of Naan Bread for each person eating; this recipe makes individual pizzas
- Tomato sauce of any kind (or green pesto or red pesto or whatever you find in your pantry or freezer)
- Mozzarella (block, shredded, slices)-I ALWAYS have mozzarella in some form in my fridge or freezer. You could also use provolone or whatever cheese you have
- Grated parmesan: sprinkle on top of sauce and under mozzarella. If you don’t have it, leave it out. We ALWAYS have it. Hey, we’re Italian. What can I say?
Apart from that, you can snip some basil from the garden over it if you have it, or use dried oregano and or dried basil. You can top it further with anything you have on hand that you like on a pizza (bacon, any nearing-the-end-of-its-life cold cuts or veggies).
Throw it in to the oven at 400-425 degrees for 8-12 minutes, depending on how burned (or not!) you like you pizza.
If you want to eat it like a Neapolitan, just fold it in half or into quarters and mangia!
