Almost every Friday, we pick up a frozen pizza. Now this isn’t glamorous, but it’s our way of “eating in” instead of out, to save money, and also to just relax after a long week. The last thing we ever want to do is make an extravagant dinner with a sink full of dishes to clean after a week of long days and work overload. That being said, we go back and forth between $5 take and bake pizza from Dominick’s or frozen ($7.50) Home Run Inn pizza. To fancify, we’ll chop up fresh garlic, basil, tomato, sometimes red peppers and mushrooms too… pop it in the oven and finish with fresh grated parmesan, a glass of wine ( or a cold beer depending on the day) and a new movie in your very own living room, snuggling with the people ( and kitties) you love 🙂 ooooo Fridays, gotta love em!

A BLT is quite perfect the way it is, but when you forget to pick up the lettuce and want to watch your saturated fat intake you can make amazingly delicious Turkey Bacon, Spinach + Basil and Tomato Sandwiches! We used Today’s Temptations ( a Chicago bakery) Whole Wheat Italian bread, Turkey Bacon, sliced tomatoes from mom’s garden and fresh basil from ours along with some crunchy baby spinach… and a shmear of light mayo. To make these, start by cooking your bacon, then toast the bread, spread on mayo on each side, then layer the tomato, spinach, basil topped with a couple slices of bacon. Slice it in half and serve with a cold brew of you choics… mmmmm summer juicy tomatoes never tasted better!
