~Pita Pizza's~

Quick, Easy and Delish!
My son wanted pizza's for dinner when i told him we were having toasted sandwhiches! So i met him half way! I have been buying very yummy pita breads and freezing them for school lunches when i have run out of bread! So i grabbed a packet out and made these pizzas while the pita was still frozen! Yanked out my homemade pizza sauce from the fridge some frozen pepperoni and grated cheese! Delish according to Loche! Took me a whole 15 mins from prep to cooking for these babies! And by the end of it i had one very happy 6 year old who had a full tummy and a smile on his face!

~Toast & More~

Ahh good ole toast! Its great for breaky! Wonderful for a snack! And a pleasant lite dinner for nites when you dont really want anything to heavy for dinner!
So this afternoon after trecking to he school to pick my son up from the school bus i realised "ya know what?! Grilled cheese and vegemite on toast would make an awesome after school snack today! Sure it was warmer today than it has been this past week BUT there was some wind with it and Loche and i were chilled down to our bones!
So while he put his gear away and washed up for snack time i got out the loaf of sour dough bread and sliced it thick spread a lil butter on it and a thin spread of an aussies fav spread! YUP Vegemite! DELISH! (for us aussies anyway and my hubby too!) Then i pulled out the best cheese you will ever come across when it comes to melting on toast! Australian Tasty Cheddar Cheese!

Now i know its not a fav of most americans so i have read on the net BUT the few family and friends i have introduced this tasty cheese to LOVE the boldness of the cheese its VERY strong so if you LOVE really strong cheese you shoould give this cheese a try! My husband and i went on a trip up to Ikea just before christmas to buy a few chrissy presents and he took me on my first trip to a Trader Joes....I have to admit i was super excited till we got there...and i was kinda disappointed in the store in general..Sure they had a few good things but for the most part it was built up to be this awesome store but in all reality it was like a local store we have here which has alot of expensive items the store here is called "Kazmaiers" But if it hadnt of been for our trip there we would not have stumbled across Whole Foods Market which is were we came across my cheese! Anywa i will talk more about this awesome store at a later post :) i have gotten off the beatten track here SORRY!

So yes i cranked up the broiler and threw the thick slices of toast in for about 3-4 mins and MMM MMMM MMMM my son was all eyes on the oven door watching the cheese bubble and melt he could NOT wait! Anyway thats what we had for our afternoon snack... And im thinking that tonight would be a good night to have toasted cheese sandwhiches whether they have ham and cheese grilled, tomatoes thinly sliced with melted cheese i think this will be a great way to use up the 2 half loaves of bread that need to be used up!
