Happy Sunday all! Sometimes the weekends go by so fast and I wish there were more fun days than work days. We were up bright & early this morning to head out for another fun day. The Husband and his Mom get so excited to go to antique fairs. I like going for all the walking it involves and sometimes I can visualize how to decorate with antiques too lol.
I was not hungry at all when we left this morning so I opted for some “protein” and some fruit ~ a FALL Grande FF Chai Tea Latte & a banana (6 points+). I really need to just get a tall or less pumps to save on points+ whenever I want a Chai Tea Latte.
I pretty much decided the Folsom Antique Fair rocks because they had a Farmer’s Market as part of it too. I picked up some super sweet & crunchy grapes to snack on……
while The Husband picked up a chicken on the stick (at 9 am) . I have to admit I actually LOVED having chicken for breakfast take 2 and had about 1/2 of it. (4 points+)
We stopped for lunch at Jack’s Urban Eats where I created another tasty Buffalo Chicken Salad.
In the mix:
* Tons of greens, carrots, mandarin oranges, peas & pickled red onions (1 points+)
* 2 Tbsp Dried Cranberries (2 points+)
* 2 Tbsp Chopped Candied Walnuts (2 points+)
* 2 Crunchy Buffalo Chicken Strips (6 points+)
* Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette (4 points+)
Ummmm….there may or may not have been a few Urban Fries on the table that I couldn’t resist tasting one or two or three
I am SUPER excited to tell you all after looking at honestly over 50 shops, 5 antique fairs and 3 malls, we found a bookshelf that we both LOVE. It is super classy and matches our new living room furniture. The Husband still wants his Caribbean shelf, but, I think he may build it. Pictures coming up once I have it all stacked with books!
Tonight, I was having another “ugh, I seriously do NOT want to cook night”.
Pita Pizzas and Flat Out Amazing Pizzas are another of my FAVORITE, I don’t want to cook meals. It is FUN because I get The Husband involved in “decorating” his pita and helping with dinner.
You can pretty much mix & match any toppings you LOVE on your pizza, but, the “KEY” to making one HUGE low point+ Pizza for yourself is to cut your pita in half horizontally so you have TWO BIG circles to put all your toppings on.
Preheat your oven to 425, then, prep your pizzas.
~ If using mushrooms or other water based veggies, saute them in nonstick spray for about 4-5 minutes to cook the water out and keep your pizza from getting soggy.
~ slice your pita in half
~ add 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce to each half and spread all over it
~ Measure out 1 oz Reduced Fat Mozzarella that is FINELY shredded (it goes further)
~ Layer it up ~ mushrooms, cheese, turkey pepperoni (you can have 13 for 1 points+)
~ Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is slightly crispy.
Slice into pizza shapes and enjoy 8 PIECES of PIZZA for only 7 points+
I haven’t made up our weekly menu yet, but, I am pretty sure it is going to involve shopping from the fridge/freezer since I need to “clean” things out.
Back to organizing all my cookbooks on our new shelf!
I am so trying this recipe out.
Finally able to log on from Australia while on vaca….missing my Danica fix!

My husband and I love making homemade pizzas but I have never thought to use a pita before. Awesome idea! Can’t wait to make it!

Oooh! I’ve made pita pizza, but didn’t think about slicing it in half to get a 2-for-1, of sorts. Great tip. Thanks! 🙂
I love following your newsletter because you are so sweet. My husband and I are travelling from NH to California on a sightseeing trip. The people in California that we’ve met are all like you…just so nice.

I *ALWAYS* think of Getting Our Booties In Gear when I make pita pizzas 🙂
