Happy Sunday to one and all. It's sunny outside, but windy so wrapping up is required if one should venture out. I haven't needed the heating on for over a week, so I am pleased to be saving money on that score. If the weather continues as it is I shall be well on the way to shaving £'s off the next bill.
I've had a pack of six thin and crispy pizza bases in the freezer for a month. I don't normally buy or make pizzas, but these were a snip at 15p. I was looking for reduced price bread but there was none, so I thought these were the next best thing. I don't use my oven, not even sure if it still works, but I thought there must be another way to make pizzas. Yesterday I had a go.
The topping will have to be cooked separately in a pan on the hob, so I got two Quorn sausages out of the freezer. I tried to slice them up with the electric carving knife but they were too hard, so I zapped them in the microwave for a few seconds to defrost them. Much easier to slice.
When this is cooked, about 6 or 7 minutes, put two halves of the base on the grill pan, I use foil because I don't like washing grill pans, and add the topping. Grated cheese on the top and grill till the cheese has melted.
Oh my, it was chuffin lovely :o) I ate one last night and have just eaten the second one for lunch today. Still got four bases so I shall be making more, using up whatever I have to hand.
I've made a start on the mountain. In the magazine it is a winter scene with snow in the background, but I am changing the snow to heather. The canvas is shrinking as I sew, so if I am going to use this wood for a frame, I will have to chop a bit off for it to fit. Don't think I have finished when the whole canvas is covered, that's when I start adding detail. There will still be more work to do.
