3 Reasons Pita Bread is the Best

I can’t get you out of my head.

You are so yummy,

Pita Bread

Have a safe journey to my tummy.

1. Pizza – Pita bread makes a great pizza crust. And it doesn’t need to bake very long to be edible, just pop it in the oven until your cheese is melted. (Some toppings may take longer). Tonight I made a pizza for my husband (Sauce, Pepperoni, Mozzarella, Cheddar, Pepperoni) and a pizza for me and Little Man (sauce, leftover steamed veggies from lunch at Rock Bottom, mozzarella, cheddar, steak (also leftover)) and put in the oven. I took it out before the oven even finished pre-heating to 400… it was probably in there only about 6 minutes. And it was delicious.

2. It’s good, by itself, or with a dip. Again, just pop it in the oven for 3-5 minutes until it’s nice and toasty. Serve it with hummus or other delicious snacks or eat it by itself.

3. I think the above two reasons are good enough, but just incase… did I mention the convenience? You buy a pack of pita bread at the store and when the kiddo’s or husband ask for 3rd lunch, you can tell them it’ll be ready in 10 minutes!

The only problem is it requires an oven, and living in Seattlexas without AC on the top floor of a many-windowed apartment gets HOT. I say Seattlexas because it’s clear that My One and Only brought the Texas weather with us when we moved to Seattle a year ago. It hardly ever rains and today it was 93* F. Without A/C…this is yucky.

Anywho, I’ve been spending my time trying to write a letter of complaint to the USCIS which I was hoping to publish here, but it is not yet ready. Tomorrow we leave on an adventure to Alaska/Canada and so you will not be hearing from me for a while, but I’m sure I will have a lot to talk about when I get back!

Pizza Sauce

My brain wears the pants in this relationship.

We were halfway through a wonderful dinner when I couldn’t take it any more. I was about to burst with excitement!

“Did you know that a kilobyte has 1,024 bytes, which is 2^10 ?”

It was this mornings phrase, and I was so proud of myself that I couldn’t wait to show off. It’s a good thing I didn’t wait because my One and Only had forgotten that there was something I should remember. I guess he ought to start his own blog!

My hair is long and plenty,

and yet it falls out like crazy,

how can this be?

It seems… contradictory.

(Inspired by the sight of my hairbrush this morning).

It’s probably safe to assume that remembering something for once does not mean I am cured; however, I am excited about all of the instant gratification I have been feeling since I started on this endeavor.

Especially wonderful are the nice comments that have been left on my previous posts.

Underpants, Overpants

Fancy Pants, Schmancy Pants

Pants for this. Pants for that.

Pants to match your every hat.

(Inspired by the fact that I had to change Little Man’s pants thrice today. 

1. I put soapy water in a bowl filled with toys for him to encourage hand washing and he made a giant puddle on the kitchen floor. It worked out well because I used the opportunity to mop the kitchen floor. Second time this year.. whoohoo! 

2. Hard boiled egg yolk somehow ended up in hair and all over his clothes.

3. … I’m sure there was third time. Maybe it was just trading his pajamas for some regular pants.)

Well, it’s time to go play Mario Party 6 with my One and Only. We just unlocked the last map!
