Where I live we have been living out of porta-potties for the past 2-3 weeks due to severe flooding. Yes, I said porta-potties. Anyway, good news is that we have been issued to use minimal water. Which means we get to go to the bathroom! However, that little things that you don't think twice about are affected. For example, cooking and cleaning. It is very difficult to cook without being able to use a little bit of water, whether it be to us it in the meal, to clean up or to wash vegtables. I thought making a pizza and a salad would be fairly easy to do without water. Stupid me.

I really thought this would be fairly easy. I bought pre-made dough/flatbread that came with the pizza sauce, pizza cheese, pepporoni, and mushrooms. Under normal circumstances, I would have totally made my own pizza sauce, but again no water=no dirty dishes for a while. And if I could make dough in my apartment, I would have done that too (see my previous blog post about me and dough). I used a plastic bowl and bottled drinking water to cleanse the mushrooms. Anyway, the pizza did turn out pretty good and was fairly easy to do!

Then I craved a salad... I usually just buy pre-packaged salad to begin with, but always have to rinse it. So I grabbed a strainer, my jug of drinking water, the salad and headed to the bathroom (where things are plugged). I drizzled the water over the salad and cleaned it the best I could.

I have found a new love for raspberry salad dressing. It works quite well with the salt in croutons, seeds, cheese or whatever you like to use. I use croutons and feta cheese and it was delicious (please excuse the plastic bowl and fork...oh, and the yellow counter tops!)
