Fun Monday-Calorie Free style!

Margaret, the Misanthrope is our hostess for Fun Monday this week. If you could choose one “main course” item and one dessert item that would, just for you, contain zero calories for the rest of your life (or zero cholesterol, zero points, or whatever your most important dietary measure is)…what would you choose? Post a pic of your chosen items if you like, or just make us drool with a description!

The main course is easy!Pizza, without a doubt. You can do pizza so many ways, on pita bread, on crust, on biscuits or tortillas, the list is endless. You can also get pizza out, buy it frozen to bake or microwave, or make it at home so it’s not like something that is terribly difficult. It’s also a kid pleaser, and great for leftovers, so an all around family favorite would be great to have calorie free. I can’t find the picture right now, but I’ve made ‘homemade’ which means homemade sauce and a packet of dough mix that I add water to, and then we split some string cheese and put it in the crust and wrapped it around for a ‘stuffed’ crust pizza at home. Worked well, really!

The dessert took me a little while longer. I pondered and finally came up with…chocolate chip cookies. They may not be my FAVORITE dessert, BUT–they are my husband’s and if I could make him chocolate chip cookies whenever he wanted and not be afraid to eat too many myself?!? Wow, we would both be in bliss!



  1. Yum! Pizza sounds pretty good right about now… Wish I could eat it without the gastric side effects!

    Chocolate chip cookies – I came close to choosing those, but since I find tiramisu harder to resist, I chose that!

  2. Woot! Fabulous choices, Jill! It was a tossup for me between pasta and pizza. It came down to which (for me) was the bigger comfort food, and it’s pasta. But pizza was a really close second! And chocolate chip cookies? Yum Yum!! Great answers, thank you for playing!

  3. Intriguing trick with the string cheese–Smart Jill! Just recently a friend and I were talking about making homemade pizza with the refrigerated dough. We’d just had the freshest tasting pizza–New York style. Just sliced Roma tomato, basil, and cheese. Oh yum! As to your dessert choice–good planning to select something that would make both you and hubs happy!

  4. Seems like your not the only one that likes Pizza, we have it at least once a week. Chocolate chip cookies are a big hit in my home also.

  5. You and I think alike. My favorite food is pizza too! One of my favorite desserts is a dessert pizza. Top a pizza crust with cream cheese and apple pie filling or cherry pie filling and you have a tasty dessert pizza!

  6. Hmmm and I thought pasta would be the thing…turns out it’s pizza! 😉 Amazingly where I’m from pizza is just snacks…as people would look for rice always! LOL
