I call it ‘The Lazy Girl’s Calzone’ :)

Step 1: Cut a slit on the side of a pita

Step 2: Fill pita with marinara sauce, tempeh, zucchini, yellow squash, basil, and cheese

Step 3: Bake pita at 400 degrees for 8 minutes

Step 4: Enjoy!! :)

I have a catch 22 where I always want to order calzones at restaurants because they look and sound so good, but I never do because know that if I do I’ll be disappointed with it. Usually calzones have too much cheese and the crust if a little overwelming for my tastes. My ‘Lazy Girl’s Calzone’ fixes those dilemmas. I control the cheese, I can amp up the toppings, and the pita is just enough crust. :)

Plus, my version is just a tad bit healthier than any calzone you’ll find on any restaurant’s menu. ;)

From lazy girl dinner to lazy girl dessert. :)

I followed Angela’s super easy 3 Minute Vegan Oatmeal Cookie (original recipe from Tina) and used rolled dates instead of raisins and added some dark chocolate bark that I chopped up. I slathered it with Strawberry Preserves.

Delicious. :) I think the best part was the melted dark chocolate pieces. If you add dark chocolate to anything I am all over it.

Before I left work I had some carrot sticks and almond butter as my afternoon snack.

Pack, Pack, Pack

Here’s the deal:

I leave for Washington DC on a 3:30pm flight tomorrow afternoon. I have a 6:30pm flight back to Orlando on Sunday. I land around 9:00pm and head straight from the airport to Tampa to the west coast to the beach house my family has rented for the week.

What does this all mean?

This means I am sitting here packing for two separate back-to-back trips. Ughh..

Trip #1

Trip #2

Let’s hope I have everything!

Today was the day I had to give back the Chevy Malibu I had been test driving and blogging about at www.GirlfriendGetawayFlorida.com for the past month. *tear *tear The Malibu will surely be missed. What did I think about the Malibu? Well, in all honesty I loved it! I mean more »

No Snuggle Puppy

June 3, 2010

Good Morning! I trust everyone slept well. It was actually nice getting up this morning and not having to let Maddie out or hunting her down to put her in her crate. Though, it wasn’t nice not having my cuddle buddy. My bed is so lonely without my puppy to snuggle with. This morning I more »
