|If my homemade pizza was a movie, it would be starring Julia Roberts for sure.|
I was so hungry and so tired last night. I was like, "I will just order in pizza," but then I thought... wait, I totally still have lots of my magic pizza dough yeast leftover. And lots of flour, too, for cooking with.
So, using the remaining contents of my much-emptier-now fridge, I made the following pizza:
- homemade crust with whole wheat flour
- pesto (instead of tomato sauce)
- chicken (cooked in the George Foreman grill, which actually cooks chicken v.g.!)
- red peppers (the pepper is a little shrivelly, but Frugal Companion advises me it is still edible)
So anyway. It is le deliciousness and I get to eat it for the next few days, since I made a whole pizza. And it's extra-thrifty, as I made it (just like the last pizza I made) in a cookie sheet, because that's what I own.

Anyway, today in a store I saw that they're selling microwaves for $39.99. That is very cheap. But, where would I put it? My kitchen is small and has very few outlets. But would it be a good thing to buy? I can heat up my magic bag in it, and also heat up leftovers.
But using just a stove-stove seems so old-timey and therefore, frugal. But it's not really, I guess, because it probably uses more electricity (which costs more money) to use a conventional over.
So, I turn it over to you guys. What do you think? $39.99 microwave... worthwhile purchase?
