Vince hasn’t been home for lunch this week so on Monday, I thought I’d run to Hardee’s and get a greasy burger. For some reason, I wanted one of their hamburgers. Got one of the portabella burgers in the meal deal with fries and a drink and it was almost $7. Can you believe that? At a fast food joint? How do families afford to go out to eat anywhere if it costs $7 just for a fast food meal? I should get out more often I guess.
I decided I’m fix something for myself at home the rest of the week. Yesterday I wanted a pizza. I have no idea how much it costs to buy pizza out. Vince bought one a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t even ask how much it was.
For those of you who don’t make homemade pizza, what are you waiting for? There was olive oil dough from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes in the fridge so I grabbed a hunk of that and made myself a little pizza. I figure a pizza about this size costs me $3 – $4 to make, including turkey pepperoni, Canadian bacon, sauce and cheese. And, there’s enough pizza there for two lunches when I’m the only one eating. A lot better and a lot less expensive than the burger and fries.
If I hadn’t already been starving when I started making it, I would have taken time to add black olives and onions. And, if I had any fresh basil, I would have added that. But, even without those things, it was yummy and it was not $7!
