My annual Super Bowl post is coming very soon. For an opening act I thought I’d showcase once again why this blog is called Mark Ruins Dinner.
If you’re like me (and why wouldn’t you be?) you purchase convenience food at the grocery store because it’s quick and impossible to ruin. You may have even asked yourself “How could you possibly wreck a frozen pizza?” Here’s your answer.
The boys had some friends over so I thought getting a couple frozen pizzas would be an easy dinner that everyone would eat. So I got one cheese and one pepperoni and put them in the oven at the same time. After 17 minutes we checked on them. At this point Karen said to me “Why did you put one right above the other? You’re supposed to stagger them so the crusts cook properly.” She couldn’t have told me that at the beginning. Besides, I’m the homemade pizza guy now. Anyway, we moved them apart so that the top pizza crust would cook, but it wasn’t that easy. You see, the crust on the top one had started sagging through the oven rack. But we did our best and moved it over. But then Karen decided it would be a good idea to turn it, so that it would stop sagging. In the process she ripped a hole in the middle of the pizza:
That’s the cheese dripping through the middle of the pizza. I quickly got it out before it opened up like a black hole. We had a heck of a time getting it out of the oven, but the boys ate it just fine. Karen said it looked like a belly button. I don’t think that’s a good thing for a pizza.
This doesn’t bode well for my Super Bowl pick.
