When we lived in Madison and we were trying to convince Andy’s sister to leave California and  live close to us, one of the many bribery tactics I used was that we could have a family dinner together every Sunday.  At that time, she’d Skype with us as we ate dinner each Sunday evening, so the thought of us actually be around the same table to catch up about our weeks was appealing to everyone.  And what do you know, it worked!  She soon moved to Madison and then followed us to Cleveland where are tradition of a weekly Sunday dinner together have continued.

Our dinners range from going all out to something simple.  From grilling to a simmering soup or stew.  We’re not picky, we simply enjoy our time together.  When it’s been a long week or we’ve had a busy day, pizza is always an easy dinner option.  This Bacon Double Cheeseburger is my new favorite.  A wonderful marriage of a pizza and a burger, this pie has it all!

When we moved to Cleveland, the first question I asked all our neighbors was where they bought their groceries.  The almost unanimous answer was Heinen’s.  We’re lucky in that there is a store nearby and the selection of products and friendliness of their employees never disappoints.  I particularly love their produce and meat departments.  Always fresh and always a huge selection.  And the woman that works behind the seafood counter at my Heinen’s is hands down the most knowledgeable around. 

A quick stop last week for pizza ingredients and we were ready to make dinner!

This pie starts with my Perfect Pizza Crust.  The base for all of my pizzas.  It couldn’t be easier and it’s quick to come together.  The dough is covered in a sauce of mustard and ketchup and and then cheddar cheese.  Up next?  A pound, yes, a POUND of ground beef.  That’s why this is a Bacon DOUBLE Cheeseburger Pizza.  It’s finished off with bacon, onions, tomatoes and slices of dill pickle.  The end result is nothing but delicious!
