Some recipe combinations are born out of pure inspiration and creativity. Others, out of necessity.

We were trying to use up the remaining groceries one of the last evenings during our vacation a few weeks back. Earlier in the week we had stocked up a ton of things in order to avoid restaurants as much as possible, and our supply had dwindled down to some random things, a few of which were: a chunk of brie, a bit of gouda, mozzarella slices, pepperoni, part of a mango, a half a pound of shrimp, a red onion, flour tortillas, and leftover pizza sauce.

We did consider going out to eat because of our random ingredients, but honestly, we were pooped. Make ourselves presentable, and then sit upright as well? It was all much too demanding. So we decided on using the flour tortillas to make cracker pizzas (or pizza crisps, or whatever you’d like to call them).

The ingredients were spread out on the counter for each of us to make our own combination. Hank grabbed the pepperoni, Hope stuck to the cheeses, and Randy decided on trying a shrimp and gouda combo. When I started assembling a brie, red onion, and mango pizza, Randy was a bit unsure, and totally not interested in me making another for him.

In the end I was happy I didn’t have to share. The combination of brie and mango … oh my word … and with slivers of red onion … just perfect!

(For the record, where we were, brie was cheaper than Oreos, and a mango less than an apple. Can you believe it? Crazy, I know! We ate lots of cheese that week.)

While it certainly wasn’t a combination that I would have normally thought of at home, I’m so glad I did. You work with what’s available, right? Sometimes you’re surprised when things turn out even better that way.
