“remember that time ross said, ‘squatternut bosh’?”

Posted on

Hahaha…I love Friends.  What about you?  It’s probably one of my very favorite shows—it’s so quotable!

Last night, Jen called me up to see Roomie Reagan and I would like to come over for dinner.  Her suggestion:  Rachel’s recently posted recipe for Butternut Squash Pizza.

We took a few short cuts with pre-cut (frozen) butternut squash and pre-made dough from Whole Foods (which Jen so generously picked up).  Have you ever tried to cut up a b-nut squash?  Let me just tell you, it is a bitch to do.

Jen rolled out the dough with some cornmeal on the bottom, and we pre-baked it a little bit before going to town.  Instead of blobbing the ricotta, she spread it out over the length of the dough.

There were green beans with dill on the side:

What’s your favorite unconventional pizza recipe?  I make a mean Mexican pizza that I’ll have to post soon

***Note:  I entered Carly’s Great Blogger Pumpkin Carving Contest!  I was going to say you should, too…but it looks like today is the last day 😦  That’s what I get for entering/getting on the bandwagon so late!  Check out her blog and some of the other pumpkin entries in the comments.

  3. When I was a kid I used to order pizza with no toppings and no cheese. Yes, just bread and sauce. Now that I’m all grown up I just order breadsticks and call it a meal.
