Christopher works late on Wednesdays so I've decided not to cook but let the kiddos fend for themselves. They are both at that age where it's time they learned to cook a few simple quick meals. One day I may actually have a life and not be in the kitchen waiting to take orders. *lol* Yeah, right! Haillie is allowed to use the stove while Abby is still microwaving it. At first there were a few complaints but I think they are enjoying being self efficient. I'm thinking this will also upgrade my next Mother's Day breakfast in bed. Goodbye pb&j sandwiches and glass of chocolate milk. Hello eggs benedict and cappuccino!
Now just because I'm not cooking doesn't mean I don't have a recipe to share. I tried a new pizza crust recipe last Friday and it was a success. My family loved it more than the one I've been using for years.
1-1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup lukewarm water
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1-1/2 tsp garlic powder
1-1/2 tsp onion powder
3 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
Throw ingredients into your bread machine in the order suggested by manufacturer and set function to dough setting. Roll dough out to desired size and thickness. Then before adding your sauce brush entire crust with olive oil. Assemble pizza and bake at 425 ⁰F for 16 to 18 minutes, or until crust is light brown.
