It is nice to go home and have someone do the cooking for me.  Although I love cooking and preparing meals for others, I always appreciate when the role is reversed.  As I was working on my computer and mom was reading the Sunday paper, we both decided that we were ready for lunch.  Mom was craving one of her flatbread pizzas and offered to make me one.  We decided to split it and have some veggies and dip on the side. Seriously, these pizzas take like 5 minutes to make, are low in calories compared to take-out, and you can add any healthy (or indulgent 😉 ) ingredients you want!

My Mom’s Flatbread Pizza


  • Flatout Flatbread flavor of your choice
  • Garlic salt
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cheese
  • Toppings of your choice:  we chose turkey pepperoni, green pepper, red onion, green olives
Top the pizza crust with garlic salt and spray with a little non stick olive oil cooking spray.  Stick in the oven at around 350 until the crust is golden brown.  Pull out of the oven and top with sauce, cheese, and the rest of your toppings.  Stick back in the oven until the cheese is melted.   Cut into four slices and enjoy to yourself, or share with a loved one 🙂
After lunch, I headed out to the JoAnn’s Fabrics to get materials for my first sewing project…an apron!
I hope it turns out alright!  The package for the pattern says “It’s sew easy”….so hopefully that is put on their for a reason.
I then came home to Brian who had been studying all day long.  It was so good to see him after a weekend away.  We were both pretty ready for dinner, so I got to work to whip something together quickly.  I was in the mood for a plate full of greens, so I made myself a GIANT salad.
It was a salad with spinach topped with fresh Amish tomatoes, fresh Amish corn, carrots, jalapenos, red onion, and salsa.  It was delicious and really filled my craving for veggies.
I have to go into work early tomorrow, so I am off for an early bed time!  Tomorrow begins the final week of my half marathon training schedule, so lots of short runs!  That will be a big change compared to the 13 miles I did yesterday 😉
