Perfect Pizza

pizza1Isn’t it great when a plan falls into place? I managed to get two nice pizza bases reduced to 69p from Sainsbury’s the other week and they have been sitting in the freezer waiting for an opportunity to use them. I have peppers and half a tin of sweetcorn to use up, plus cheese already grated from the veggie enchiladas we had last night so all good so far for pizza making. Then I realised we also had a whole packet of salsa, also from the enchiladas, that would make a perfect pizza topping. So, this morning before I was even dressed, I had thrown together two delicious looking pizzas to have with salad for our tea. Mega easy and mega cheap.

Good news yesterday. I heard from the local language college that we will have our first student of the year coming in early March with more on the way. This will be a huge boon to my finances, especially after my news about getting a pay cut on Wednesday. We love the foreign students – they have so far been very sweet and interesting and a joy to have in the house. And I don’t really notice one more teenager! 🙂

    Sorry to hear about the cut in pay, but glad that other (financial) doors are opening! The pizzas look great. 🙂

    Hi Sam – it’s not a national scheme, although you can earn £4000 a year this way tax free. I approached my local language school. We happen to have one, but I suppose not all towns will. Have a Google. Mine pays £126 a week and you have to provide a room with a desk and breakfast and dinner during the week, then all meals at the weekend (assuming they are in – mine have always spent a lot of time socialising with the other students). They like you to sit and eat with them as this obviously helps their English. We have lots of fun with Google Translate at the dinner table! 🙂
