Iron Chef: Pizza Edition Rematch!

I've gotten into the habit of having two breakfasts on the weekends! I like to have fruit after my run and let it digest before consuming breakfast #2. The sugar and tea combo also helps me wake up.

Then I eat around 10-10:30. A Greek yogurt parfait with sliced bananas, strawberries, and pumpkin granola.

Put a serving of the granola in a little bowl to add as I ate. Also enjoyed half of a carrot-raisin muffin.

Wasn't really hungry for lunch so I just decided to have a veggie platter with baba ganoush and cottage cheese dip.

It seems that the BF and I have gotten into the habit of consuming copious amounts of wine and cheese (and crackers) on our movie nights. We shared a bottle of merlot and paired it with creamy havarti.

Then it was pizza throwdown time!

I used swiss cheese, artificial crab, tomatoes, onions, and mozzarella cheese.

BF used chicken, spinach, yellow peppers, tomatoes, onions, and mozzarella cheese.

Mine didn't look or taste as good as yesterday. :( BF and I both thought it was flavourless aside from the overwhelming amount of pizza sauce I put on. We ended up adding some blue cheese to it which made it SO MUCH BETTER. Blue Cheese + Pizza = Good.

BF's pizza was the clear winner tonight. It had all the right flavors, creamy melted cheese on big globs of chicken paired with onions and spinach. There is a definite limit as to how much toppings a pita crust can take before it gives out on you though.

After dinner snacks included a mini rice krispies square out of the BF's stackables lunchbox.

And a tiny ice cream sandwich. :)
