Pizza for Waffles!

Our new Frigidaire Gallery stove has really been a lifesaver lately. Especially seeing that I'm pretty much nauseous 24/7 theses days thanks to baby bean number two. The last thing I want to do is slave over a stove for dinner when the odds are I wont make it through three bites, ok maybe its not quite that bad but my appetite comes and goes and I find it very difficult to get motivated to cook when you find food sometimes not so appealing. My new stove buddy has been making life awfully easy and fool proof for me lately. Earlier this week I threw dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets in the stove, hit the chicken nugget button (YES!! There is a button for chicken nuggets!) and walked away. A very short time later our nuggets were done and while I waited for them to cool my nifty Frigidaire gallery microwave helped me heat up some veggies and my very lazy and surprisingly tasty dinner was served. I think the entire process took me about 10 minutes start to finish and most of that time was spent lounging on the recliner. What I really loved though was how crispy the nuggets came out, the convection oven not only cooks the food quicker and you never have to worry about soggy food. Actually that has to be the one dinner this week that I ate in entirety so I'm guessing that baby bean liked it too.

Tonight's dinner was at Chris's request. I've never made a homemade pizza before and with a short trip to the grocery store I gathered my ingredients and we were ready to rock. I can't honestly say that making your own pizza, at least with premade dough, is any cheaper than a frozen pizza but we did get much more pizza for the money and it was pretty fun. Chris made a thick crust pizza and I made a thin crust pizza but all in all we ended up using the same ingredients. In total I bought two rolls of premade dough, one bottle of pizza sauce, two packages of five cheese preshredded cheese, and a package of mini pepperonis. I wasn't sure how my stomach would feel about the pepperoni so somehow the mini's seemed the lesser evil and they actually worked beautifully on the pizza. We finished off our pizzas with a little Italian seasoning blend and garlic and popped them in the oven using the pizza button. A little over ten minutes later we had two very tasty homemade pizzas! There was absolutely no guess work with the stove and tada we had some gorgeous delicious pizzas!

Connor had a good time sharing his pizza with his puppy Waffles. She is so tiny, and already four months old! Can you believe how tiny she is? They are a match made in heaven though, he even gave her a bath after they ate dinner.

Check out the entire line of Frigidaire appliances on their website. Don't forget that Frigidaire offers the “More Me Time” guarantee!

I can't believe how short the cooking times are(in the posts so far)I have been amazed that food can even cook that fast. They really have given you more{me}time!
Great posts and great review. I am jealous of your new stove....now that is something I never thought I would say (or type)!
Waffles and Connor are too cute together, by the way.
