MONDAY I ATE
Breakfast: Oatmeal with nibs and blueberries
Morning Snack: Chocolate covered almonds
Lunch: Leftover polenta stuff
Afternoon snack: Coke zero, more almonds, some leftover candy
Dinner: Pizza (it is Pi Day, after all)… made a sauce in the pressure cooker that was really good. Also saute’d some onions, along with red peppers, frozen corn, and prosciutto made for a good pie.
Dessert: Mini grasshopper pie
Here’s the sauce recipe:
Pressure Cooker Pizza Sauce
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 cloves garlic
2 14 oz cans tomatoes
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
Heat olive oil until very hot in pressure cooker, then add onion, basic, oregano, and pepper flakes. Saute 5 minutes then add the garlic for another minute.
Add one can of tomatoes, then drain some juice out of the other can before adding. Toss in the salt and sugar, drop the lid on the pressure cooker, bring it up to pressure and cook for 15 minutes. Depressurize however you like, open lid and hit the stuff with a stick blender. If it’s watery, you could let it simmer some more.
This makes enough for 2 pizzas.
