The last phase of the kitchen re-do was getting new countertops. In an effort to save some money, we opted to take off the old countertops ourselves – which ended up happening the week before the new ones were installed so my Dad could help with it all. We’d been working around a torn up kitchen for a month already, but having no counters (or a sink!) really threw me. We ended up doing a lot of take out that week.
I think this is the only meal I made at home that week. It involved minimal equipment: one cutting board to prep on, one knife and the waffle iron. And then we ate off paper plates so there wouldn’t be any more we had to wash in the bathroom sink.
They were fun – definitely not any kind of gourmet, but fun. We used refrigerated biscuits, cut a pocket, stuffed them with pizza toppings and tossed them on the waffle iron. We served them along with warmed pizza sauce for dipping. Start to finish, it probably took fifteen minutes to get it on the table. Perfect for what we felt like dealing with that week, but I’m also thinking this would be a great, quick lunch.

Sliced pepperoni, or any of your other favorite pizza toppings
Pizza sauce, for dipping
Using a knife, cut a pocket into each biscuit and stuff with mozzarella and pepperoni (or other toppings). Cook in a hot waffle iron until golden brown.
