Back to Normal

Hubby got home last night about 8:30 & I was definitely glad that I didn't have to spend another night in our house alone. Monday night while I was walking Bogey a guy in our neighborhood hit on me & maybe I'm just naive, but since I was alone it certainly creeped me out. I'll certainly be avoiding their corner when I walk Bogey by myself the next time.

Tonight I've got a quick dinner planned...Tortilla Pizzas. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place some fajita size flour tortillas on a cookie sheet & heat them until they are golden brown & crispy around the edges (normally 8-10 min). You'll need to watch them as they may bubble up a bit & I just prick them with a fork to flatten out the air bubble. After they are brown, just pull them out of the oven & top them with whatever pizza toppings you want. I normally just use a can of pizza sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, & mushrooms. I've also made a white pizza version with alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, spinach, & mozzarella. Once you've filled them full of toppings, just put them back in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is nice & melted. Hubby loves these & they are super quick & easy. I normally fix 2 pizzas for each of us because the fajita size tortillas are quite small. You could certainly use bigger tortillas--this is just what I normally have on hand.

Hubby has yard duty tonight since we've had a ton of rain and unseasonably cool temps so we'll be spending the rest of the evening outside. Since he's been out of town Bogey is practically living in a jungle!

Also, I am very excited...we are planning a quick getaway to St. Louis the first weekend in October. It is the last weekend the Cardinals are playing in the regular season & Phantom of the Opera is also showing at the Fox Theater! We'll see Phantom of the Opera on Friday night & the Cardinals game at noon on Saturday. YIPPEE!!!! I'm super excited & already can't wait. The best of both worlds if you ask me!

i am a big fan of tortilla pizzas. Have you tried Flat Out wraps? They crisp up so perfectly!

I happened to read your post right before I left work and I was so glad to see the tortilla pizza idea! We made them tonight on the grill. Yum! We made a spicy chicken & cheese with a garlic-ranch sauce and a more traditional ham one. Both were awesome! We'll be adding those to the regular rotation. Thanks again!
