Skinny pizza dough . . . English muffins!  I wish I could take credit for this, but my fellow foodie Sherri at The Kitchen Prescription made them and told me about it.  It’s so weird how versatile this skinny pizza dough is!

It couldn’t be easier.  I took 3 ounces of dough and shaped it into the shape of an English muffin.  I heated a non-stick skillet over medium low heat for about 2 minutes.  I sprinkled some white corn meal in the pan, the put the dough in the pan, put a lid on the pan (or in my case – a cookie sheet!) and cooked for 4 minutes on one side, flipped, and cooked 3 minutes on the other side.  That’s it.

I did press the dough down a bit when I put it in the pan so that the inside would cook in the middle.

I let it cool for 2 minutes, then used a fork to open it.

Looks like an English muffin!

It’s perfect with a bit of light butter and jelly.

Or an amazeball 4 point breakfast sandwich.   Let me know if you make these!  It’s perfect to make one at a time as needed – I haven’t made a big batch yet to store, but I think I would store them in the freezer and go straight from the freezer to the toaster.  I’ll keep you posted.

I met my Mom for lunch yesterday.  I hadn’t seen her since December 29!  I was going to see her before her trip to Hong Kong and Thailand, but I had bronchitis and didn’t want to get her sick.  Hannah was home yesterday morning so she was my stylist – thanks Hannah!

We went to Uncle Julio’s in Schaumburg and loved everything.  Such good food – I got the seared ahi tuna tacos and my Mom got the salmon – I am trying to love salmon – I like it, but hers was delicious.  I guess I am just a bit intimidated cooking it at home.  

My friends Mary Beth and Josh invited me over for the Superbowl last night.  They have four beautiful children under the age of 7.  They knew there were not able to have their own kids and my friend MaryBeth is starting to open up about how her family came to be – if you are on Instagram, give my friend Mary Beth a follow – she’s an amazing writer, mother and wife, and I am happy to call her my friend.

How was your weekend?  I was busy so I didn’t meal plan as much as I usually do, but I’ll do that tonight – I know I have plenty of food – I plan on making a batch of chili tonight for the week.  It’s all good.

Be sure to come back tomorrow . . . it’s giveaway time!  And it’s a good one.

Happy Monday friends – make it a great day!
