How to: balance the blahs with the yums


You know what saps energy faster than when a guy loses his virginity? Staying positive.

It's been a rough week for me, and I finally have a free moment to relax. My house smells like a hospital because of all the disinfectant sprayed in the basement, and we've had to endure the constant rumbling of the industrial dehumidifier running 24/7. Apart from that, work has been less-than-pleasant, and it doesn't look like my load is letting up soon. I'm not complaining-- honest. I'm just really exhausted.

I've been trying to balance out my blahs with yums. And pita pizzas are definitely helping. What? You've never had a pita pizza before? Well, get thee to a food stuffs shop and buy them ingredients! I recommend making your pitas from scratch, but if you can't, please get the good stuff. It tastes so much better. Oh, and did I mention this recipe was vegetarian?

Pita Pizzas (that make the world go 'round)
Tomato Sauce seasoned with oregano, basil, pepper, a bit of sugar, and some garlic.
Blanched spinach, with the excess water squeezed out
FRESH mozzarella
caramelized onions
cherry tomatoes, slices
sauteed mushrooms (in butter and garlic, of course)
olives (for my husband)
more cheese (we used feta and a chunk of parmesan we found in the fridge)

1. Prepare all the ingredients before assembling pizza.
2. Heat your oven up to 400F
3. Top your pitas with assorted toppings
4. Place pitas on a baking sheet and into the oven for 5-8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
5. Enjoy your happiness on a plate.

Happy weekend, everyone!

  21. That leather jacket is so cool paired with your lace top! And the pizza looks absolutely delicious.

  22. I hope your days have been filled with lots more yums lately, Laura! I still can't believe all you guys had to go through (especially emotionally) with your basement flooding! Your pita pizza and your outfit is tres inspiring. Whenever I feel the blahs, I totally look it.
    p.s. Pita pizza is very popular in Istanbul. In fact, that was the only time we had pita there -- shocking to me. I thought pita would be served with every meal, but you only saw it on pizzas. Pita pizza, pita pizza, pita pizza! I just like saying ;)
