I worked from home today....I love this! I needed to get some things done before I left for the lake and my meetings were all doable by phone. Working from my sofa lets me drop a load of laundry in or bake a batch of brownies and feel like I'm able to manage it all. A total facade!
After I dropped Cooper off at school I stopped by the grocery store to pick up what I needed. As I was walking past the frozen food aisle (with no intention of visiting), I saw the CPK delivery man stocking the freezer. I couldn't help myself and picked up a Hawaiian pizza with plans of a completely amazing lunch.
Fast forward 4 hours when my stomach is growling and I've got 12 things too many going on at once. I opened the package, threw the frozen pie on my pizza stone and returned to the sofa. I pay absolutely NO ATTENTION to the directions- after all, it's a frozen pizza, how hard can it be? I was in the middle of a conference call and the timer goes off, so I mute the phone and grab the pizza so that it can cool. My call ends and I cannot wait to sink my teeth into my lunch.
Oddly, I am unable to cut through the pizza. I keep trying to cut the thing in half and it just doesn't work. So I'm thinking to myself- what in the world? How can this be- I'm starving and I can't cut even a sliver of my amazing lunch. I've been waiting for almost 5 hours- come on...cut!! I try again and nada.
I just had my knives sharpened (this man is amazing if you need anything sharpened!) and even say out loud- "what is with this knife?" It's crazy- the pizza is literally bending in half but I cannot cut it all the way through. Have I lost my mind?
Well, yes- I have. Evidently in my haste, I forgot to complete step 2 of the directions
2 Remove pizza from clear plastic wrap and cardboard.
I pick up the pizza, and there cemented securely to the bottom of my lunch is the cardboard circle that is included with probably EVERY FROZEN PIZZA IN AMERICA.
No matter- I also neglected this little diddy
For best results. DO NOT bake pizza on a cookie sheet or pizza stone.
I ended up eating brownies for lunch.
They almost made up for my momentary lapse of reason.
