Dessert Before Dinner

by Meghann on January 25, 2010

Who says dessert has to come after dinner? Certainly, not I. ๐Ÿ˜‰


The other week I accidently sent my ring flying across the room when I took my glove off and the ring with it. I took that as a sign my ring needed to resized.


I’ve had this ring for just over two years; its about time I sized it to actually fit my finger. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After work I met Katy at Jared’s where I dropped my ring off and she had her earrings inspected. Then we did what any other self respecting adults would do right before dinner…  

We got frozen yogurt. Yum!


Katy had been wanting to try the new self serve frozen yogurt place down the street and since they know me by name there I figured I would show her the ropes.


I think she enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I left work I snacked on regular ole yogurt with granola.


Not as good as the frozen stuff, but still pretty darn tasty.

I was afraid the froyo would spoil my dinner, but honestly froyo isn’t very filling. A couple of hours later I was more than ready for a real meal, plus I was excited to execute my pizza idea with the new flat bread I purchased.


However, I was sad to discover I was all out of marinara sauce. ๐Ÿ™

Meet my replacement.


BBQ pizza. Yum!


I topped my flat bread with bbq sauce, broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, goat cheese, and some sun dried tomato chicken sausages I purchased at Publix yesterday.


It went in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes and came out nice and crispy.


I was right, the flat bead made the perfect pizza crust! It was extra crispy and delicious.


Now that I have had both my dessert and dinner I am more than ready for bed.

Good Night!

ah so I was watching “what women want” the other day and was reminded of my favorite running quote (from Mel Gibson’s Nike Ad)
I totally thought of you:

Dessert before dinner is just a snack in my book, leaving room for another after dinner ๐Ÿ™‚
I think I need to give in to the fro yo gods and move south

Your ring is really pretty, glad you were able to get it sized to fit!

Love BBQ pizza AND that brand of sausages are incredible! I can’t find them around here anymore though. ๐Ÿ™

7 Jenna January 25, 2010 at 9:52 pm

Okay, I am totally jealous of your afternoon and evening eats. What a wonderful way to make a Monday bearable! Sleep tight!

8 tryingtoheal January 25, 2010 at 9:52 pm

man, i am totally craving fro yo and i can’t find any down here in homestead…drive some down to me from orlando? lol. def jealous.

9 Carrie @ I See Monsters January 25, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Hahaha, I had frozen yogurt before dinner tonight as well! So funny. I had to go grocery shopping but was starving, so I stopped at the self-serve froyo place next to Publix to soothe my stomach so I didn’t buy the entire store. Dessert before dinner is fun. ๐Ÿ˜‰

10 Anna January 25, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Mmmmm….all the fro yo on your blog makes me so jealous!!

11 eaternotarunner January 25, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Frozen yogurt is good any time of the day!

12 theprocessofhealing January 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

BBQ pizza sauce.. perfection! What a cool way to change up something like pizza!

13 Heather January 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

I think dessert should be consumed BEFORE dinner – it usually is the best part!

Your flatbread pizza looks great – what a quick and easy meal.

14 Sarah January 25, 2010 at 9:55 pm

A fellow frozen yogurt AND pizza addict!! They know me by name at my local place too ๐Ÿ™‚

I love your bbq pizza idea! Love my bbq sauce, but since I don’t eat meat it makes it challenging to think of ways to use it. I love your combo, I’d just leave off the sausage part.

15 Karla January 25, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Wow! I’ve been seeing pizza all over the places! I’m going to have to make some!
Frozen Yogurt is really perfect any time of the day!

16 Island Girl Eats January 25, 2010 at 9:57 pm

I bought the same sausages today. They are so good!

17 alittleaboutlia January 25, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Love the pizza recipe as well as your blog!

18 Erin January 25, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Mmmm BBQ pizza is the best. I’m making something similar for dinner tomorrow.

19 Mara @ What's For Dinner? January 25, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Great use of the flatbread! I’m telling you, it’ll take an hour to get that ring sized!

20 Rachel January 25, 2010 at 10:07 pm

Your nails look so pretty. I’d say two years is long enough for an ill-fitting ring.

Dinner looks great. I love BBQ sauce on pizza. It’s a nice change from the traditional pizza sauce.

21 Matt January 25, 2010 at 10:29 pm

That is my favorite BBQ sauce!

22 tramey1 January 25, 2010 at 10:34 pm

Whyyyyyyyyy must we only have TCBY around here?!?!?! I love it, don’t get me wrong. The whole “make your own” theme is SO much better though. *sigh* Maybe someday!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

23 Brittany January 25, 2010 at 10:40 pm

Dessert for dinner is always okay in my book. Especially when it involves frozen yogurt.

24 weightwatchersforone January 25, 2010 at 10:42 pm

Thanks for the BBQ sauce idea! I have been wanting to make homemade pizza but keep forgetting to buy sauce AND I have been having weird cravings for BBQ sauce… perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

25 Fit Chick in the City January 25, 2010 at 11:01 pm

I’ve already eaten dinner and your pizza is making me hungry! Looks yummy!

26 Lisa January 25, 2010 at 11:12 pm

The pizza looks delicious!

Am I the only one who noticed (so far) that you said you dropped your finger off at Jareds? I’m still laughing about it. Thanks for the chuckle!

27 Jessica January 26, 2010 at 12:15 am

I noticed that too…and I’m still giggling imagining how you would go about leaving your finger there!

28 Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle January 25, 2010 at 11:17 pm

mm, I love pizza with BBQ sauce instead of the regular marinara- looks good!

29 Kellie January 25, 2010 at 11:23 pm

I think it makes sense to eat desert first. I will always want desert no matter how full I am, so why not eat that first. Then you only eat as much dinner as you need to be satisfied.

30 biz319 January 25, 2010 at 11:30 pm

Love the idea of bbq pizza – its possible the only one I have never tried!!

Love the first pic – you are so cute!

31 Deva (Voracious Vorilee) January 25, 2010 at 11:38 pm

BBQ sauce on pizza is fantastic! Though, I’ll eat barbeque on nearly everything (even hot dogs), so I might have some bias ๐Ÿ˜‰

32 adrienmelaine January 25, 2010 at 11:44 pm

that pizza looks heavenly! fantastic idea with the flatbread- though I don’t think we have nearly the selection up in good ol Canada.. I’ll have to hunt some down.. or make my own on a whim of experimentation in the kitchen!

33 inmytummy January 25, 2010 at 11:44 pm

Life is short, eat dessert first! That motto has always stuck with me!

34 Jasmine @ Eat Move Write January 26, 2010 at 12:58 am

YOu dropped “your finger” off… lol. That’s hilarious.

The pizza looks fab.

35 Nicci January 26, 2010 at 1:22 am

BBQ sauce pizza looks and sounds great. I was bad and ate vegan brownies before dinner…its fun.

36 foodfitnessandfreya January 26, 2010 at 3:39 am

ah bbq sauce is the best, I bet that pizza tasted darn fine! Sleep well:)

37 Sarah (Finding My Balance) January 26, 2010 at 5:33 am

i just LOST my ring because it was too big (luckily, my mom found it at my grandma’s house, but i won’t be able to get it for six months…boo). good thinking to get it resized.

dessert before dinner is always a winning play in my book. especially when it’s frozen yogurt right before pizza. nice!

38 Madison January 26, 2010 at 8:06 am

Yum! That flatbread looks oh-so tasty!!

39 Jenna January 26, 2010 at 9:59 am

Yummy pizza! Fro yo looks yummmy!

40 goodtastehealthyme January 26, 2010 at 10:17 am

Flatbreads make amazing pizzas! I think I might try those chicken sausages. I’m not a very big sausage fan but that looks really good!

41 Heather @ (The Single Dish) January 26, 2010 at 11:20 am

Pizza looks great, I love chicken sausage!!

42 fromatopink January 26, 2010 at 12:13 pm

That looks fantastic! Think it would work just as well with some garlic naan? Because that might be what I make for dinner tonight. ๐Ÿ˜‰

43 Retta @ RunRettaRun January 26, 2010 at 6:08 pm

I have seen those chicken sausages and have to try it! Definitely will be giving it a whirl!
