Anyway, before I go blabbering about my week, here's this super easy pizza recipe. It's not even a recipe, since it's something you can throw together pretty quickly. You can use any type of bread/grain base you want. I used whole wheat sandwich thins but you can use a tortilla or pita bread instead.
Here's the "recipe".
- sandwhich thins, tortilla or whatever grain source you want to use
- 2 tablespoon hummus (or pizza sauce)
- 1/3-2/3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (depending if you like a lot or a little cheese)
- whatever toppings you want (I like mines plain or with veggies and pre-cooked chicken)
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Spread the hummus or pizza sauce on the bread.
- Add the cheese and spread it evenly.
- Then, add the toppings.
- Bake in the oven for 8 minutes.
- Take it out and enjoy!
And, now. my week!
For one thing, I went shopping. I went shopping last Sunday and yesterday (I normally don't go clothes shopping much, but we drove a long distance to a place near the mall for an event and we might as well go the the mall after, since we drove that far already). I only bought one top last Sunday. I also ended up buying this M&M Chocolate Chip Cookie from a bakery attached to Macy's.
It was pretty good and crunchy. I normally don't like crunchy cookie, so I was surprised I liked these. By the way, if you want to make your own M&M cookies, click here for my recipe.
Anyway, my shopping trip yesterday went pretty well. I bought 2 shorts that were on sale. They were about $5 each. I also bought 2 tank tops that were the same price and I also bought a nice blazer. Shorts costs so much these days and I was surprised to find some for $5, at JcPenny!
I went to the Bay area on Monday to visit family and to go to my internship. My grandparents flew back to Canada a couple days ago after staying with my cousins in the Bay area. It was nice spending time with them.
During the week, I decided I wanted to eat a salad for lunch. I decided to buy this Cranberry Apple Walnut Grilled Chicken salad from Carls Jr. I ditched the dressing that came with it and used my own dressing. I have to admit, the salad was pretty good and filling. The salad was pretty big! The price, on the other hand, wasn't that pretty. It always seems like the government is trying to promote healthy eating but the prices make it difficult for some people to afford it. Then again, people can always make their own salads at home for much cheaper. Even then, some prices at grocery stores are crazy high. Anyway, I may vent about that in another post.
Work/interning on Friday was busy! I stayed on my feet most of the day but things needed to be done. I managed to sip some organic free trade coffee and grab a bite of a Whole Wheat Blueberry Scone here and there. I bought the scone and coffee from Fluid right before going to work. I thought I'd have time to eat at my desk but I guess not. It was a pretty good, busy and productive day though! And, the scone was delicious. I should try making it.
Anyway, I guess that's it for now.
Do you like scones?
What's your favorite salad dressing?
More importantly, how is your weekend going?
