Yummy Pizza

My list of dinner ideas is slowly growing.  I do NOT like cooking dinner.  It's probably the last thing I want to do when I come home from work but I always get around to it.

We make a weekly list of things that sound good to us and then I make sure we have things to make it.  Sometimes it requires a quick trip to the store.

I've tried to be better about preparing things in advance...for example I was smart enough to thaw the steak for dinner this morning so it's been marinading in yumminess all day and I put out rolls to rise at lunch!

A go to meal that I LOVE is the Rotisserie Chicken from Wal-Mart. (I buy this there because it's close but I'm not a fan of Wal-mart and avoid it as much as possible.)

I usually cook some type of veggie, salad, or pasta salad to go with it.

But Brian and I can't eat a whole thing, or even half of it.  So I'm always trying to think of ideas that I can use this chicken again for.

We LOVE Chicken rollups (chicken, Cream cheese, ranch seasoning....wrapped in a crescent roll, yum) and I've made sandwiches too with the leftover but want more ideas.

So last night for dinner we made Pizza!

Pizza crust
Alfredo Sause
and leftover chicken!

It was super delicious even though Brian was not a fan of the broccoli, so next time we'll leave it off of his half.

My ideas are still coming but that's all I've done as of now.

What are some of your recipe suggestions?


  1. I make this thing called a Taco Ring. you lay out crescent rolls (don't roll them up) on a pan (it's call a ring because you are supposed to do it in a circle, but i never have a pan big enough). Then you put your taco meat (i've always done ground beef but i'm going to try chicken next week) in the middle of the crescent roll, add cheese, and fold over the skinny part of the triangle. Bake until the crescent rolls are done. Serve with sour cream, pico, guac, lettuce (obviously any taco toppings) they are SO good! and really good left over!

  2. Oh great!! This sounds awesome Brenda!! We're definitely going to try this next time I buy one! :) Thank You!
