Quick Dinner!

Hello darling, where have you been hiding all my dinner making life? Today was a busy little day and at the end of it I got to make dinner too. Excitement. But then as I was pondering my choices: frozen hamburger patties, frozen chicken, half a zucchini, a few limp beets and some tomato sauce this triumphant idea floated into my head and whispered Pizza Burgers. TRUE STORY. Anyway my choices were limited so I went with it. Everyone was happy, everyone ate and no one cried, I call that a win in my book. Check out the pizza burgers if you need a quick delicious meal that can be pretty darn healthy too.
