Last night we had a wonderful dinner! Then we watched the Mavs beat the Lakers. All told, this was a great evening in the Hudson house.
Let's start with dinner. I made a Southwestern Queso Pizza from PC's 29 Minutes to Dinner 2. This may make it to the table again (and sometime soon, too!). I enjoyed making this one because it comes together in just the right order to make it fast and easy. I used the Cheese Dip from Pace (one of our favorites) and swaped out shredded chicken for a package of prepared grilled chicken (cut up into smaller pieces). The resulting flavor was wonderful. One thing of note: the recipe calls for more cheese dip than you need. I would cut the quantity in half. The bell peppers add just enough health to this otherwise indulgent pizza. We paired this with a salad to fill out the veggie requirements of the night. The battery for the camera ran out while I was trying to take a picture, so you will just have to make this to see it. This was a great meal to prepare us to win something!
The game was great - the first win of the season for the Mavs. And against the reigning champs...not bad! we are looking good this season and it is just getting started! Mavs 94- Lakers 80.
