Prepared this pizza for our dinner today. Pardon the pictures because I was so tired after all the preparations and my Royal Prince Charming almost died of hunger while waiting for the pizza to be ready! LOL.

He was so hungry that he seems distracted while taking these 2 shots. I bet he must be yearning to eat that~ Anyway, Royal Prince Charming love this pizza so much that he ate 2 of these pizzas! He ate 40cm pizza indirectly! LOL~ The Béchamel sauce is truly yummy!

Well, because there were quite an amount of Béchamel sauce left, as usual I overdo it. I decided to whipped up some cheesy marcaroni with it. It's for my lunch tomorrow :) I have the habit of bringing my own bento to work :D

The marcaroni is very simple. Just stir fry some onions, add in the bacons and ham. With the cooked macaroni, stir fry it till all ingredients are well blended. Add in the Béchamel sauce. You may wish to stir in some water as the sauce is really thick. Stew for some moment and taste. Add some salt if desired.

I love cheesy food!
