Sorry I meant to last night! I am already in bed but I promise to put it in here tomorrow. I just photo copied the recipe from my sister so I'll need to type it out.

We just got home from four days in Vegas yesterday, and I think I am still full. This week school starts back up for me, so it's going to get crazy ... yuck

Sunday: Spaghetti with Italian suausage
Mon: Stuffed peppers
Tue: Stuffed chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli
Wed: Steak fajitas
Thur: Smothered pork chops, broccoli and squash
Fri: Pizza
Sat:
Sun:

All I have to buy are toppings for the pizza (and I might be lazy and buy premade dough, I haven't decided), chicken and squash. We have everything else, which is nice. I'll have to figure out what we're having for the weekend before Tuesday though, so I can do one fell swoop at the grocery store.

Wednesday- Turkey cutlets, stuffing, gravy and green beans
Thursday- Chicken stirfry with veggies and rice

Pizza Dough Recipe. (Makes 4 8-9 inch pizzas to 2 18-20 inch)

1tbsp active dry yeast
1.5 cups warm water
1/4 cup of milk
2 tsp table salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour (preferably unbleached)
Corn Meal
(* I added more whole wheat, and less white. It makes a denser crust. You can modify as needed for your tastes.)

Dissolve yeast in large bowl with 1/2 cup warm water.
Stir in milk, salt, rest of water until dissolved and pour over yeast.
Add olive oil, whole wheat flour, and 2 cups white flour stirring to mix. Turn out on a floured surface while you wash out and oil bowl.

Knead dough until smooth, adding more flour as necessary (about 6-8 minutes).
Return to dough to bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in volume (* this was about 45 minutes)

Preheat oven to 450.

Divide dough into size you prefer.

Stretch dough by kneading a bit, flatten out and coax toward the edges. It will resist so you have to work at it. I used a soup can and added flour as I went so make it less sticky.
Get it as even as possible.

Sprinkle cookie sheet or pizza baking pan with corn meal. (* important step, gave the dough the perfect crunch for our tastes)

Quickly place in oven and bake about 12 minutes. I sauced mine first, baked it that way, and then placed in fridge after it cooled.

The next night we sauced again, added our toppings and cheese and reheated.

ok I didn't get to food shop today so I had to throw something together.
I used a Plain Chicken blog recipe with what I had on hand- Chicken, Ham cheese crescent rolls. With rice.

I need to food shop. But if I don't tomorrow will be pizza.
