It's Sunday, and that means it is Packer day!!!!!!!! I love the Packers. One awesome thing about the Packers, there are many, is that they are owned by the people. Years ago my Grandparents owned stock and when they passed away it was given to the kids and grandchildren. It makes me so happy to see that hanging on my wall, and know we own a small piece of history. Today my in-laws are coming for the game, and we are taking the kids to the Green Bay Botanical Garden for a light show after the game. Perfect Sunday in my opinion.
This is a dish I cam up with when I was in a pinch for dinner one weekday evening. It is super tastey and makes great leftovers for the work week. You can use any toppings you like depending on your pizza preferences.
Have a fabulous Sunday! Go Pack Go!!
