Easy & Fast Pizza Dough!

This recipe is not only amazingly delicious  but it's fast!!! Much quicker than ordering a pizza! 

First, mix these three ingredients together:

1 cup warm water
1/4 oz yeast (about 1 Tablespoon)
1 teaspoon sugar

Allow this to sit for about 10 minutes. The top will get very frothy.

Second, add the following:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2.5 cups flour 

Knead this all together until you get the glorious dough ball you see above. Let it sit for 5 minutes to rise a bit.

Now you're ready to roll... Literally ;-)

Bake at 400' until golden brown.

Hope you enjoy! We sure do!!

Fresh & Easy Salsa!

Here is the quick ingredient list for my salsa recipe!

For the tutorial on how I personally make it, click here:  Fresh & Easy Salsa Recipe Video!

Otherwise all you need is listed below:

Tomatoes (peeled, cut and deseeded)
Jalapenos (optional)
Salt (and pepper if you'd like)

Pulse the ingredients together in your blender and ENJOY!

Salsa is one of those things that is 100% to taste!  Some people like cilantro, some don't. Some people love it hot (ME!!) and some don't.  Play around with it... see what YOU love the most!

Meal Plan (and lack thereof)

This week I didn't do one.

We are going on vacation very soon... so instead of making a meal plan I went to Costco with an open mind.  They had some produce on sale so I just bought it.... so until we leave we are just being creative and eating up what we have (I like leaving with an empty fridge!)

Sorry for the lack of a plan....

Any interest in our vacation meal plan?  Now that I have nailed down for weeks haha  ;-)

Hope you're having a great week <3

I use Trader Joe's Honey Greek Yogurt
And I should mention that they don't easily come out of the wrapper when they're fresh out of the oven!  
They're easier after cooling (-:
They stay fresh for about two days (maybe longer?  They're never made it longer in our house... just cover them up!)
Our favorite way to eat them is warmed up with a bit of butter (-:
