So, last week was a bit of an all over flop with all of the recipes I had planned to share, so I’m just going to give you two things that I ended up making/eating with a list of ingredients or simple instructions.
Originally I wanted to do a naan bread pizza, but the store was out of naan. I then decided, “well I’ll just make the bread myself”. Cue no yeast in sight at any store. Which in all honestly, I wasn’t surprised. I even tried to look for some dough in the pillsbury roll area of the store, and they were all out too. After searching all over for some kind of alternative I finally found some pre-made pizza dough in the deli area and decided to go that route.
All in all, it was good. I can’t say I’ve ever had a pizza I didn’t like, my only hang up was that the dough wasn’t as soft as I like it to be.
- Pre-made Pizza Dough
- Ragu Margherita Pizza Sauce
- Fresh Basil
- Fresh Mozz ball, sliced
- Roma tomato, sliced thin
- Garlic & Herb Butter (I cover the pizza dough with this under the sauce)
- Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
Super easy to make, just roll out your dough and then add everything on top and bake per the dough instructions!
The second thing I’ve been eating a lot of is peanut butter toast.
I recently got a Vitamix and am obsessed with making my own peanut butter. It’s super easy, only needs 3 ingredients and takes only 1 minute to make!
- 3 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts
- 1 tbsp white sugar (optional, I like mine with a little sweetness)
- 1 tsp salt
- Add all ingredients to your Vitamix. Make sure you replace the cap with the tamper so that you can push the peanuts down as it blends.
- Turn on your Vitamix and slowly turn the speed all the way up.
- Use your tamper to smush (scientific term) the peanuts towards the blades. At first it might not look like anything is happening, but by about the 30-40 second mark things should start to develop a creamy consistency. I let it run for a total of about 60-80 seconds, so that it’s not grainy.
- Scoop into jar or container of your choosing!
I like to have this on toast with some banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon! It will likely be a little warm right out of the Vitamix, but it will thicken up a little once it cools.
You can also do this with a food processor, I’m just not sure how long it would take in comparison.
Hopefully, this next week my recipes turn out a little better, but with everything going on right now with Covid I can’t guarantee that the store will have everything I need. I make a strong effort to only go to the store once a week, so if they are out of something I have to come up with a substitute on the fly. This week I’ll go better prepared!
Until next time, friends!
