Are you ready to grab hold of some fun this summer? I’ve been looking forward to the warm weather for ages. Hooray for days at the pool. And time in the park. And trips to the beach. And all of what summer has to offer.
Of course once you’re an adult summer doesn’t mean summer vacation. It just means the longer days come in handy because you’re that much busier. It’s hard to squeeze in work and still have plenty of time for the pool!
Not to mention cooking in the summer is a drag. I want to be outside, not in front of a hot stove. So at least once a week you have to take break and have a little fun right?
Unless it’s pizza and ice cream night with a $2 off coupon? (The demos are always worth checking out even if you don’t want to sample just for the savings!)
This night isn’t completely free of work in the kitchen. I mean, I did have to put the Tombstone Pizza in the oven, after all.
I also whipped up a trio of dipping sauces for the crust. Ranch, marina and garlic butter are easy to prepare. In the case of the marinara and ranch it’s just pour from the bottle! The garlic butter sauce required a few seconds in the microwave to melt the butter and a shake of salt and garlic powder.
A Supreme Tombstone pizza counts as a few servings of vegetables, right? (I suppose I could have thrown together a salad, but come on! I’ve already had to put a pizza in the oven and melt butter. How much work in the kitchen can one girl do?)
The box of Drumstick Ice Cream only had two caramel cones. (But I grabbed one before anyone noticed!)
What’s the perfect way to end the day of summer fun? With an outdoor movie! Poster board taped to the grill made the screen. Then all I had to do was pull up Netflix and attach my portable projector to the netbook.
