What (not) to eat when the power goes out

So, our power was out earlier this week, and when lunchtime came around, I was trying really hard to think of something good and relatively healthy to eat. I came up with: frozen pizza on the bbq, and a salad. Reasonably good, right?

I got out my pizza stone (so I could actually get it off the grill once it was done) and turned on the heat. It actually cooked pretty well:

What I couldn't tell was that most of the bottom of the pizza was totally BURNT. Boo! (next time, I'll try it at an even lower heat. It was only "medium"!)
Then, a salad. I cut up some lettuce, carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, and made a dressing. (One of a few culinary things I have learned from teaching at a French school.)
I chopped up a clove of garlic, mixed it with equal parts of olive oil and basalmic vinegar, and about a half teaspoon of dijon mustard, and called it good. (a little salt and pepper are good too. Some people will do more oil than vinegar, but I kind of like it this way.)
Something about my salad was just off though; kind of bitter. I blame the asparagus!
When I got home from class and the power was still out? We went out for dinner. :)
