My Pfaltzgraff Filigree dishes looking pretty in the cupboard. After eating all the cookies, candy, sugared nuts, pie, cake, and whatever else I could get my hands on over the last month or so, it’s nice to go back to some healthier choices food-wise. First of all, let me just say….I love pizza! If you do too & are looking for a good pizza crust from the grocery store that you can add toppings to, this is a good one. Mama Mary’s. I found out about their products from my former company. They have a food division under the company I worked for & own several well-known smaller food products (just one part of what my company did). This is their latest acquisition from what I understood right before I left. We got in several boxes back in the fall from this company & were very happy to sample the products. They have wheat crust, regular thin crust, 7″ and 12″ varieties. Anyway, all that to say this…it’s really good. We got more gift boxes in right before Christmas, so I brought home more. We love this pizza crust. It’s not frozen, so you have to eat it pretty fast or freeze it for later. You can find it at Walmart (although one of my Walmart’s didn’t have it, & the other one did, but no wheat crust at all), the crust for sure, & hopefully the pizza sauce too. If you love to make pizza at home like we do, give it a try! I will definitely be buying more of their products. Side salad of baby spinach goes very well.
Here’s the three 7″ pizzas right out of the oven. Now you may ask if pizza is a good healthy food choice. Well, we do vegetarian, so I think it’s OK. I will never get my hubby to cut out the carbs, so this is fairly healthy with olives, roasted red peppers, & mushrooms, topped with some fresh mozzarella. I think we could do worse. My favorite frozen pizza is DiGiorno, Spinach & Mushrooms, but I can see this one will be right up there too. They do a wheat crust, so that is what I’ll buy most of the time. These are the 7″ ones & it was plenty for both of us. Yum! Baby spinach salad and a Diet Dr. Pepper (did I mention this is my favorite soft drink…oh, yes…it is!). It doesn’t get much better than this. I love pizza. In fact, we are having our friends Rick & Debbie over tonight & pizza is what I’m making.
For Christmas, I told Peter that all I wanted was another set of 4 place settings of my pretty white dishes. If you remember, these are the ones (8 piece place setting) I found at a yardsale last Fall for $10. I was able to find a brand new set of 4 on Ebay for a decent price, so now I have 12 place settings. These are by Pfaltzgraff & are called Filigree & I couldn’t be happier with them. I know several of you said you had these too. I have always heard that white dishes make for the best looking food & now I’m convinced! Almost as pretty as a Southern Living spread.
