I consider myself a mild mannered person. I’m not particularly confrontational. It takes a lot to truly make me angry.
Today, however, I felt rage. I wanted to hurt something. Particularly my computer. And my blog’s server.
Two things and then I’ll be done complaining, I promise:
- Why do computers nowadays seem to have a one-year lifespan? I have taken good care of my laptop. I use it to blog, check emails, research things on the internet and that’s it. I’ve never downloaded anything shady or installed any odd programs. I’ve been a kind and gentle owner.
- Transferring a blog to a new server is stressful. I feel awful about the lag-time on my blog and sincerely apologize for the slow loading of the site and timing out of pages and comments. I am hoping this transfer eliminates all of these issues.
And now that the two big issues that took over my afternoon have been adequately addressed (I spent nearly 90 minutes on the phone with Dell “support!”), let’s move on!
I was feeling a little drained after computer problems took over my life this afternoon and knew I wanted something easy and comforting for dinner.
Over the weekend I nabbed a Boboli pizza crust from the grocery store and decided to use it to create a unique pizza for dinner.
I brushed the crust with olive oil before topping it with chopped spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella cheese, chopped roasted asparagus, green onions and… eggs!
I received a coupon for a free carton of Eggland’s Best eggs through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program and wanted to use them in a creative way (not that my usual favorite dippy eggs aren’t delicious) and figured using the eggs as a pizza topping would be a neat addition to the pie!
In a recent issue of either Shape or SELF magazine (I can’t remember which one – Ah!) I saw a recipe for a pizza topped with eggs and thought it seemed like such a neat idea. I clipped the article and used it as a guideline for how to make my version of the eggy pizza. I simply cracked the eggs overtop all of the toppings and slid the pizza into the oven and let it bake for eight minutes.
It worked like a charm!
The pieces of pizza with the runny yolks were the best.
My brain is already working on a recipe for a breakfast pizza topped with hash browns, Canadian bacon, sautéed onions and dippy eggs. Yum!
Time to relax with my little family. Hoping to hop into bed early tonight!
