GOODe GOODeNESS: Papa Murphy's and The CHILL-ogy Continues...

Tonight we enjoyed a family favorite and a special stay-cation treat.

Papa Murphy's! 


We Goodes order the Papa's Favorite on the DeLite Crust.  

Pop it in the oven for 10 minutes and viola! 

No need for a pan Superman:) Papa Murphy's comes with its own disposable paper pan. I wish someone had told me this the first time I went there. I got it home and realized that I did not have a pizza pan to "bake at home" and ran around this house scramblin' for one for 20 minutes.

We won't discuss why I no longer own a pizza pan/stone. It is a very unfortunate story from a few years back involving pregnancy hormones and a very stubborn pizza stone that could not be reasoned with... Just sayin'

Pssst... don't forget to grab that $2 off coupon that comes with every pizza.

Speaking of coupons... I was at the grocery store today stocking up for the third installment of my FREEZE-O-RAMA CHILL-ogy (trilogy), The BIG FREEZE. While I was waiting in the check out line, I saw the lady in front of me had some Aunt Millie Hot Dog Buns and I gave her my spare coupon for $.55 off. She was so thrilled. You'd have thought I gave her $100. She thanked me, her hubby thanked me and even her 2 yr old thanked me!  I was so happy that I noticed she could use it. I think I made her day and ya know what? She made mine :)

Speaking of my CHILL-ogy... tomorrow I am set to continue my FREEZE-O-RAMA with The BIG FREEZE. I am trying a few new recipes and I can't wait! I have included some marinades that will go great on the grill and fantastic with some of our favorite summer sides!

BTW- If you have a favorite marinade, please DO SHARE! In the summer we live on our back porch  a grillin' and I would LOVE to have some new things to try from my bloggy friends;)

Below is my basic game plan for tomorrow:

Texas Ranch Soup NEW
Beefy Mexicalli
Turkey Tetrazzini NEW
Lasagna in a Pot
Chicken Ham Rollups (unrolled) NEW
Italian Chicken Marinade NEW
Balsamic Rosemary Chicken Marinade NEW
Beef Stroganoff

Whew... I am exhausted already :)

I hope to get more organized over the next month and blog about how we make FREEZE-O-RAMA work for us--Complete with quick sides and tips and tricks--Ya know, fancy tips like:

Don't forget to set out the dish before work... Sure sounds easy, but this is MY major downfall with FREEZE-O-RAMA implementation. GOODe thing we always have a freezer stocked full of Brown Bag Burritos and  Homemade Chicken Nuggets to fall back on :)

8 GOODe Thoughts:

Ooh, you've got me wanting to cook! Can't wait to see how everything turns out!
