If you are American, you probably eat pizza all the time. Shoot, you may even eat vegetarian pizza sometimes. Although if you get double-cheese, that pretty much counts as meat. This is not that. This is home-assembled pizza (with a crust mix, I’m not that ambitious on weeknights) that is delicious and filling and actually not terrible for you. Because the sauce is leaves and the meat is vegetables.

I call this "Greeeeen pizza." Featuring broccoli, zucchini, serrano peppers, and onions which may or may not be green.

I call this “Greeeeen pizza.” Featuring broccoli, zucchini, serrano peppers, mild green peppers, and onions (which may or may not be green, don’t judge me!).

You can even use different combinations of vegetables to create alternative delights catering to the tastes of your guests.

If you have a sous chef handy, assembling ingredients beforehand would be a great task for them.

That’s right. So many veggies, and so few preparation steps. You can’t not love it. Assembly instructions for the pictured pizza as well as even more delicious veggie alternatives below:

I warn you before you read this post that the accompanying picture is weak at best. I am including it because it seems as if a blog post without a picture these days is like a movie that goes straight to DVD: nobody bothers. The thing about movies that go straight to DVD is that the production company KNOWS that’s going to happen, so they choose the route of not even attempting to garner interest from theater-goers. I’m going the opposite route here by attempting to draw you in with the promise of a picture of delicious food. Which I will provide. Quality not guaranteed.

In the meantime, I also made another apple pie. This one had extra EXTRA crumbly cheese topping. And was mildly photogenic:

Homemade crust. Works every time.

Since I took such a long hiatus from posting pictures of my food, which I know is what you all are really here for, I’ve decided to add a few from my backlog. When I stopped taking frequent pictures, I started taking better pictures of better food, so don’t think that this sample is (necessarily) representative of either my eating habits or my photography skills.

Now, look at food!

The first meal of August: I moved away from the poblanos briefly, although I suspect I'll go back one day. Also, slicing these in half looks nice but was really just a ploy to get them all to fit into the pan.

Look, I’m twenty-seven years old. Some people would think that’s too old to continue to be amused by the asparagus-pee phenomenon. Well, in my case, those people would be WRONG! Even if you don’t think it’s funny (which it is), you have to admit that the genetics are cool: it’s a two-way table. Some people can smell it, and some can’t (genetic); some people have it and others don’t (also genetic). Incredible, right?

Anyway, guess what I had for dinner on Thursday night?! You’ll just have to wait to find out.

Sunday: You know… stuff!

Feeling kinda lazy, but (unsurprisingly) quite hungry around dinnertime, I decided to go with the classic: leftovers! Hunkered down on the leftovers from food from earlier in the week, and… forgot to take a picture! I’m sorry. I’m seriously sorry. I am so lame, but that’s just what happens. Sometimes we are lame. And by “we,” I of course mean “me.”

Monday: Still being lazy a day later

OK, I’m not lazy. Tonight I shoved some nachos in my face in my rush to make it to Ultimate practice at 6. Fortunately, I made it on time! Unfortunately, practice started at 8. One would think I could remember an event that happens at the same time every week. But that one would be WRONG! So, since I didn’t take a picture of what I thought would be my pre-dinner snack but ended up being my actual dinner… here is the best comic I’ve ever come across about nachos, from XKCD:

I feel as though this recipe doesn’t need much of an introduction. It’s tender, juicy, slightly sweet pork chops coated in something crunchy. I know, you’re already putting your coat on to go to the grocery store and pick up the necessary ingredients. But wait: Don’t you want to read the recipe first?

You don't want to read the recipe. You just want to test the idea that maybe pictures on computer screens taste like the actual object in the picture. I don't recommend that.
