I'm usually a very hands-on cook- I make myself a homemade breakfast every morning, pack myself a lunch, and usually prep a pretty involved dinner 5 nights a week. But sometimes you have to cut yourself some slack. Tonight was one of those nights. Work has been wacky lately and I've been leaving work much later than usual. We are running wicked low on groceries and it's hot.
This is all a very long way of telling you that I picked up a pizza on the way home. And it was good.
I first tried Unchained Pizza back in May when my sister was here. It was delicious! One of the only veggie pies I've gotten that wasn't completely soggy.
Huge 18" pizza- we each had two slices and have several leftover. Lunch!
Covered in mushrooms, broccoli, olives, tomatoes, onions, and peppers.
Just because we had takeout didn't mean we couldn't enjoy some ambiance. Enter our lovely backyard and a glass of 3 buck Sauvignon Blanc. Hurrah for al fresco dining!
And while we're outside, how 'bout a few backyard pictures??
Check out the garden- growing like weeds! And there are plenty of actual weeds in there- I've been pulling up the naughty ones a few times a week!

Whole lotta mint- we need to have a mojito party, stat!
Gill loves playing in the BBY (big backyard- he can't spell but he knows where the fun happens!).
For dessert, a few freshly picked raspberries. And then birthday cake for my mother in law at their house- happy birthday Lorraine! (And Uncle Dan- his birthday is tomorrow, too!)
