Let's face it: Some nights are harder than others. I can't tell you the number of times I've saddled up, ready to work at my kitchen counter―sleeves pushed up, hair pulled back―and had a stare down with the cutting board, willing a dinner idea to reveal itself.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm an introvert and a homebody. Friday night to Sunday is this precious pause of time and space; I get to catch up with a close friend or two over a video chat and cuddle with my dog, Quentin. The weekend is a gift we don't take lightly.

But it’s a cycle: Sunday afternoon hits, and you start thinking about all the fun things you didn't get to this weekend. Then Sunday evening rolls around, and that Monday-morning meeting looms just a little larger with every passing hour. Before you know it, the weekend is gone...forever. It's the “Sunday Scaries,” as some people like to call that sudden surge of dread (and by “some people,” yes, I mean me).

I am the queen of procrastinating. Some call it a bad habit; I call it efficient. This has applied to many corners of my life throughout the years, from writing term papers to filing my taxes, but none so much as in the kitchen.

Both work and life are hectic enough as it is to give any meal of the day much forethought (cut to me eating shells and cheddar from a box). Throw in all the curveballs of 2020 and, yep, I'm leaving just about everything down to the last minute. And seeing as I'll likely be spending this Thanksgiving solo, I'm pretty sure I'll let any Turkey Day preparations—the planning, the shopping, the cooking—come down to the wire.

Pizza is a steadfast dinner option when I simply can’t summon the energy to cook. Just give me dough slathered with sauce and melting cheese and I’ll eat it right out of the box, thank you so much. Though my favorite spots for takeout pie are just a short walk away, sometimes the farthest I feel like going is my own kitchen.
