Healthy Pizza

It doesn't look tasty, but it was a great dinner! SP made last night's pizzas on whole wheat crust. This is done using this recipe, whole wheat flour, and a little extra water. My pizza was the healthy version, topped with artichoke hearts, green pepper slices, goat cheese, mild banana peppers, light salami, and sauce. I ate about a fifth to a quarter of the pizza (we cut in rectangles) and was satisfied! I will try it again, but with even more vegetables next time!

Sunday Scramble

We are on a new food regime in this house. This is a photo of the kids breakfast plates. This morning we are having, with a side of grapefruit, farm fresh eggs scrambled with spinach, beet greens, and last nights left over sweet potato fries! Time for breakfast on the back porch!

Friday's Fantastic Feast

I'm feeling alliterative, it wasn't really a feast but it was fantastic. Isn't that a pretty dinner?

Better yet it was chocked full of protein, and the dipping sauce was a left over Chipotle dressing I made as an improvement upon the leftover sauce from a Jillian Michael's Chipotle Beef recipe.

We butterflied boneless skinless chicken breast, filled it with spinach, lite salami, and shredded strips of carrot. The were rolled up, skewered with toothpicks, and oven baked. In the last few minutes they were topped with freshly shredded Parmesan. You can see the yummy bundles below, being delicately plated by SP's sexy hands. :D xo

A Real Simple Blueberry Jam

I made these three jars of simple jam from two pints of local high bush blueberries. Yum. Three cans begin my canning season and I take that as a very good sign.
I found the recipe in Real Simple's July 2011 edition. You can find the recipe here. It truly is really simple.

Breakfast Smoothies a la Egg Basket

Egg Basket posted another link on Facebook yesterday that I deem worthy of sharing. Serendipitously, while dropping Puckstopper off at Logan yesterday, I had a smoothie at a burrito place. It was AWESOME. It even eclipsed my burrito which I ate later in the car ride home. I might be the latest convert into the smoothie craze!

here's the link

Baked Eggs with Basil Mint Pesto

This was amazing! I made it for dinner. Two nights in a row. I made it for breakfast, with only one egg, for Daughter and Baby. They loved it. They demolished it.

The unique pesto, made from mint and basil in the garden, spread on top of goat cheese, is so wonderfully aromatic and flavorful. It was also a wonderful use of baguette remnants from the weekend. I think the best part was using the last of the beautiful Windy Hill Farm eggs we bought at the New Gloucester Village Store on the way home from SP's office.

The caught my eye immediately in this book that my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday! I adore it.

Oh my gosh! Janice Cole has a blog! Yea! I am too excited to learn more about her now, so I am NOT taking time to put up this recipe!
