Hi, friends. What to say?! I love you! I hope that you are safe and healthy. I hope that you have people in your life who you are able to (remotely) connect with, so that you can lift each other up. I hope you have enough to eat. I also hope that you didn’t make the mistake I made, of stocking up on healthy food and forgetting that you would need junk food during these trying times! (At the moment, I would commit utterly unspeakable acts for a pizza.) I hope you live somewhere where you’re able to get outside at least once a day (six feet apart, and don’t touch anything)! And I hope you’re holed up with people or animals you love, who love you.
Pals, I am grateful for you, for this whole community. I’m so glad we’re here together. And if I were to order a pizza right now, it would have: pineapple AND pepperoni, and a drizzle of honey and sriracha, and maybe basil leaves? Might get wild and dip it in ranch! What’s on your pizza, friends?

See a comment that needs to be here? Tag me! I’m [at] queergirl.
I got my last full paycheck for who knows how long today and screw it! I’m gonna give in to the 50% off emails I’ve been getting all week and get dominos! My go to is bacon and feta with light sauce, plus garlic bread twists
now I’m hungry for grease
omg you’re right there have been so many pizza ads! <3
What’s on my pizza? Parmesan, mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, chicken, bacon, onions, spinach, garlic, oregano, basil. Thin crust.
I’m more daydreaming of hands capable of making pizza dough than daydreaming of pizza.
But yeah a goat cheese and spinach pizza with roasted garlic that would hit the spot rn.
Annnddd just realised that’s a completely unconsciously Lent observant friendly craving
GOAT CHEESE AND SPINACH yum, lex
Can’t remember what type of goat cheese it is tho. Just that’s not feta. 🤔
Pizza! Funny you should mention that. My local decided to open for takeout pizza and beer this afternoon, so I just had to ! I picked the vegetarian one. Super yummy.
Oh and about the junk food, you’re so right Queer Girl, I in fact made a store run today to pick up junk-ish food, who am I kidding I picked up junk food. Let’s not try to dress it up.
I plan on making cookies with my kiddos tomorrow. We need to be extra kind and patient with ourselves (I keep trying to remind myself). And we had Dominos for dinner which was a nice treat!
If your kiddos like PB&J I have a flourless PBJ cookie recipe. It’s pretty easy and requires little fingers to get it just right.
My pizza is usually mushrooms, black olives, pineapple, basil, and onions. I also dip it (or at least the crust) in ranch! We’re doing homemade pizza for dinner tomorrow, in fact, and now I’m going to try a bit of honey and see what happens!
I’m so grateful for y’all and this community too!
so excited about all of these homemade pizzas!!
Well now I’m ordering pizza! With banana peppers and extra cheese for self-care whilst I can.
Okay, I’ve watched “Birds of Prey”, and it’s Harley x Huntress all the way.
is it streaming yet kristana?
Yarr har fiddle dee dee ;)
