Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock…and Pizza

I wanted to post tonight for three reasons:  One, I was very proud of myself for repurposing yesterday’s leftovers.  I don’t do that often enough, so I felt the need to call attention to it.  B, I made a yummy pizza.  Three, because I made a pizza, I got to try out one of my Valentine’s Day presents.

What’s that you say?  What does a Valentine’s Day present have to do with pizza?  Patience, my friends.

Let me start by saying that my boyfriend is awesome.  We typically don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day; it’s just not that big of a deal.  But this year he got me a couple unexpected and fantastic presents.  Present number 1:  a pizza cutter.  And not just any pizza cutter!  I’ve never had a pizza cutter before, so it’s a cool gadget to have, especially now that I’m making some kick-ass pizzas.  But this pizza cutter is special.  This one looks like…drumroll please….the USS Enterprise.

So.  Freaking.  Cool.

So. Freaking. Cool.

And that brings me to my leftovers.  When I made the Pasta with Sausage and Spinach yesterday, I couldn’t help but think that the sausage mixture would be great on a pizza.  Conveniently, I also made pizza dough yesterday!  So tonight after work, it was super easy to throw together a pizza with the leftover sausage stuff and some mozzarella cheese.

Pizza is so pretty.


And this particular pizza was hearty and delicious.  Plus, I got to use my pizza cutter!  Now it all starts to come together…

But wait!  I mentioned that I got a couple of fantastic Valentine’s Day presents!  What other fabulous item did I receive, you might ask?

This one:


A Rock/Paper/Scissors/Lizard/Spock coffee mug.  (And…now the title of today’s blog post makes sense!)

If you do not watch The Big Bang Theory, or if you haven’t seen this episode, here’s a link to Sheldon explaining the rules of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock.  Enjoy. 

And in case you didn’t catch the rules (or you haven’t clicked on the link yet), here they are!


My favorite is: Paper disproves Spock.

Yes, the font is a bit difficult to read in the picture – sorry about that!

What’s your favorite kitchen gadget?  Or your best Valentine’s Day gift?  Any other Big Bang Theory fans out there?  (Yes, Mom, you made me start watching the show – thank you!!)
