10 Television Shows on DVD

This week's Ten on Tuesday wants to know what 10 television shows you have or would like to have on DVD. My list:

1. Monk (have Season 1)
2. CSI: New York (have Season 1)
3. CSI
4. Friends
5. Seinfeld
6. Homefront
7. ER
8. Chicago Hope
9. Everybody Loves Raymond (Thanks, Patois, for the idea!)
10. Psych

At first I thought this was going to be a breeze. I was putting down one show after another, then I came to a screeching halt. I absolutely can not think of anything else! I'm sure I'll come up with something later.

Mediterranean Hummus Pizza

Billy was able to get the good hummus yesterday at Fadi's! The pizza was really good, and it reminded me a lot of the Greek Pita Pizzas that I've made in the past, but it was quite a bit saltier. I think that was due to the combination of hummus, Kalamata olives, and marinated artichoke hearts.

I made it on a 15" round stone with my delicious homemade pizza crust, which complemented the Greek flavors nicely. I brushed olive oil and fresh garlic on the crust, then baked it completely. After it cooled a bit, I spread the hummus on top. Then I topped it with coarsely chopped kalamata olives, chopped onion (I forgot to buy red onion), diced cucumber, marinated artichoke hearts, diced tomato (on my half only), and feta cheese.

It was very filling! I've mentioned before that Billy and I can't eat as much pizza on the new crust, and it was true last night as well. The two of us ate only half, so we have leftovers for tonight. I hope it's good left over, but I can't see why it wouldn't be.

I didn't figure the boys would like that pizza, so I made a cheese pizza for them. They have 5 slices left, so that should be enough for them and the babysitter tonight.

My hubby LOVES Monk!! He watches the Monk marathons faithfully each time!! [I personally think that Monk's fixation with germs is a lot like my hubby....hehehehe]

Monk! Of course! Why didn't I think of that. Excuse me while I go add it to my list!

I LOVED HOMEFRONT! You're the only person I've ever seen who's heard of it, LOL.

I wish they'd bring it back in syndication.

Ashley!!! No "Lost"??? If you haven't already discovered it, that's a show that needs to be watched from Season One on. It's my favorite show on TV, as you probably know by reading my blog! :)

I enjoy "Monk" too, although I rarely get to watch it when it's on. My son got me hooked on the DVD's.

You'll be glad to know I went to the library today and put the first two episodes of Lost, season 1, on hold. I should get them next week. After I watch them, I'll let you know if I'm hooked.

I thought I would like it when it first came on, but I kept missing it. It didn't look like the kind of show you could start watching half a season into it, so I didn't bother.

If I like it, maybe I can get caught up before it starts up again.

Monk is one good TV show, he looks so dumb because of his personality in which he have different phobias within him
