Power's Out Pizza

We're on day 3 of no power on our road.  While I had planned on using up things in the fridge this week, it's a bit more imperative now that the perishables are living in a cooler on my kitchen floor.  I racked my brain trying to figure out what I could make for dinner with the stove top or grill that would use up the most of what was heading towards moldy in the cooler.  Cheese, pesto and tomatoes were all rescued and piled one pizza crust on the grill.  It was a great dinner!  The tomatoes and basil in the pesto all came from the garden and are some of my favorite flavors of summer!  

Anyone else getting creative trying to selvage their food in the face of a power outage?

  1. Wow--this looks delicious! I am making something similar for dinner tonight, only I get to use my oven and refrigerator for it! Hope all is better with you soon.
