Another early post. I'll be busy tomorrow morning, so I'm getting this out of the way tonight. I'm very late getting started this evening. I tend to procrastinate too much, so I'll get right to point.
This is my Thursday morning breakfast, another half a cranberry bagel with light cream cheese, raisins, walnuts and white chocolate chips.
Mid morning, I had a gingerbread man for a snack. It was the last one. I'd forgotten there was one left. He was a little broken, but still very tasty. He would have been great with a gingerbread latte. I actually had the cookie while I was fixing lunch. I waited a bit too long to get started on it and was very hungry.
I decided to fix a Lean Cuisine Wood Fire Style Margherita Pizza.

This is how it looks straight out of the box.
I went for the crispier crust. They suggest increasing the cook time by 15 seconds for a crispier crust, but depending on your microwave it gets a little tougher as it cools, still not bad. It was warm all the way through and had a good flavor.
It might not be the best pizza you've ever eaten, but it fills the void and it definitely wasn't the worst. I liked the chunks of tomato. The cheese didn't have a lot of flavor though, luckily the tomatoes did.
I cut it with a pizza wheel into fourths and then cut a bite off using my fork. It was just slightly tough to cut. I decided to just pick up the pieces and eat it without the fork. I'd thought about adding some Parmesan in case it needed some extra flavor, but it wasn't necessary. I gave this pizza 4 stars, but just barely. I prefer oven baked pizza crust of course. This is great in a pinch though.
This is sort of a snack/dinner meal. I had leftover garbanzo beans, which I used to make a little hummus. I didn't really go by my hummus recipe because, I didn't have quite enough beans. I just improvised. I used tahini, lemon juice, garlic, onion powder, marjoram, and paprika, blended with my hand blender.
I ate carrot sticks and cucumber slices with the hummus. It turned out pretty good.
The second half of dinner was a few onion rings with spicy ranch dressing for dipping.
Now I'm calling it a night. It's late and I will need to be up early tomorrow. I am certainly a glutton for punishment. Have a great night/ day!!!
