Apologies, for I’ve been MIA this past week because we’ve been celebrating my DF’s grandma’s 90th birthday in Vegas and then meeting up with my family in Hawaii for a little relaxation time. Now that we’re back home, it’s time for me to get back into the flow of things. I have so much to blog about!
I just landed back in SF about two hours ago and wanted to get a post up before I got into bed. That’s how much I love you guys.
We’ve been eating a lot of red meat for the past week and really need to cut back on that. Chicken to the rescue!
This really is perfect chicken. It’s great to serve as is, with rice, on top of a salad, or in pasta. You can do whatever you want with it.
All I’m dreaming about is getting into bed and not scratching all these dang bug bites that I have on my legs from hiking Manoa Falls yesterday. Good night to all!
Sometimes, miracles happen. In this case, it’s called buffalo chicken pizza. Oh lordy. It’s easy to finish this is one sitting (or maybe that’s just me?), but you should probably share with a friend or two.
I used Pillsbury’s Pizza Crust for the first time and was very impressed with how easy it was to roll out onto my baking pan. There was no tossing, stretching, or pulling. The dough didn’t stick together and I didn’t have to worry about punching holes through it with my claw like fingers. Simply unroll the dough and add on your desired toppings.
Frank’s buffalo sauce has always been around in our kitchen for every kind of meat, vegetable, or bread that you can imagine. My DF likes to douse it on practically everything. When you mix buffalo sauce, chicken, and pizza together, you’ve got my DF’s favorite foods in one dish. It’s a dinner that he’s guaranteed to love.
You basically just heat up chicken with hot sauce over the stovetop, let it cook together for a bit, and then throw it on top of your dough.
Add a little cheese.
And some chopped onions for color (and health).
And throw it into the oven to let it melt together.
Rectangle pizzas are far superior than circle pizzas. You get more manageable slices and extra crust on four pieces. That’s what I’m talking about!
It also reminds me of elementary school because we always got our class party pizzas from Little Caesar’s. I never ate that brand of pizza at home, so it was a treat every single time. Little pieces for my 6 year old hands. I was ecstatic to have a pizza slice that I could comfortable hold way back in the day.
I’m all about the edges and my DF prefers the middle… Another reason why we’re just two peas in a pod. Are you more of a crust or middle kind of pizza eater?
Recipe from Inspired Taste. Remember.. you have to cook the pizza dough for a bit prior to adding all of the toppings!
There’s no soup aisle in the grocery store without those red and white cans. My mom has used them, my neighbors have used them, my friends have used them, and I’m no different. I’m a fan of the red and white. After all, they have been around for 144 years! If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m talking about Campbell’s condensed soups. My personal favorites are Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom since you can do so much with them. Plus, my DF will still eat food that I make with Cream of Mushroom even though he despises mushrooms! Did you know that Campbell’s chicken noodle soup has 32 feet of noodles in every single can? That equals to about six of me! I found a quick and easy recipe on their website, Campbell’s Kitchen. There, you can find fresh ways to make your everyday meals and even convince your family to eat the impossible! There’s a lot of inspiration just waiting to be found. This dish that I chose is great because you literally only need one pan. You stir all the ingredients in one, bake it, and serve it! How easy can cleanup get? Not only that, but you get a side and a main dish as well. You’re preparing two different parts of the meal in the oven at the same time. The recipes on Campbell’s Kitchen are time friendly and simple. If you have a bunch of picky little eaters at your house, then perhaps this site is for you. The Wisest Kid in the Whole World™ teamed up with Campbell’s to create recipes just for kids. We all know how kids can be– they’ll eat nothing but chicken nuggets and ketchup for one week and then pizza the next. Sometimes, they’ll avoid sauces at all costs. Other times, they’ll drench everything in ranch dressing. Their tastes change on a weekly (if not daily) basis and it’s hard to keep up! It’s your job as a parent and my job as a DF to make sure our “kids” eat right. You can find fun, quick meal ideas your kids will love at WisestKid.com. As previously mentioned, this recipe is from Campbell’s Kitchen.
