Pizza at Home

Here's a quick way to fancy up one of those take & bake pizzas they have a Sam's Club!
The cheese pizzas we're just $4 the other day
I looked around the kitchen and grabbed the following items: a block of cheddar cheese, some fresh tomatoes, jalapenos, and green peppers. I thinly sliced tomatoes, chopped the jalapenos and green peppers, and then laid them out on the pizza. I didn't put that many jalapenos on one side since I'm not a huge fan of them on my pizza, so I added extra cheese on it. Then, grated the cheese right over the top of the pizza. Then placed it in the over for the time that the box stated, (12-15 minutes).

And here's the pizza right out of the oven!

See simple way to dress up a pizza with ingredients you already have on hand.
It's easy to add leftover chicken or ground beef, as well as any cheese or veggies you want.

What is Fresh this Spring!

Springtime is the best time for FRESH veggies and fruit. I took a trip to my local flea/farmers market and purchased one grocery bag full some 'right off the truck' veggies for under $8. The trick to buying local produce is to know what's in season ahead of time! We purchased tomatoes, carrots, a variety of peppers, radishes, and some fresh limes.

Here's a quick list of what to buy this spring:
-Carrots (very tasty, and easy to grow in your yard)
-Peas (yum!)
-Artichokes (which I've tried to work with but have been unsuccessful, if you have a tip let me know!)
-Strawberries (easy to grow yourself!)
-Blueberries (I love to go handpick them!)

Find local farms, Farmer's Markets, Co-Ops, U-Pick-Em farms in your area here

Tallahassee Area:
-Tallahassee Farmers' Market at Market Square in Tallahassee, Saturday Mornings
-Lake Ella Growers' Market at Lake Ella in Tallahassee, Wednesday 3-6pm
-You Pick Blueberries: Green Meadows Farm in Monticello, June Only
