Summer Loving....Had Us a Blast

I found this post in my stash of drafts.  They are pictures from last summer.  But they still make me smile.

Stone Fruit, Blueberry and Gluten Free Cornmeal Pancakes

The berries and stone fruits are so pretty this time of year.  We made Gluten Free Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes and topped them with fresh blueberries, stone fruit and a little cream cheese.  Nothing left.

Pizza Toppings

Pepperoni, olive and mushroom pizza on a whole wheat crust
 We have officially expanded the pizza topping of Sous Chef.  He now will eat mushrooms.  One good stir-fry from a local restaurant and he's decided he likes mushrooms.

Lunch Boxes

School has started, and that means lunchboxes are filled on a daily basis.  I make an effort to provide well balanced meals, that they will eat and enjoy.  Two regular staples are pizza bombs and fake out flautas.....
I use the little tiny pepperoni slices (usually turkey) and low moisture part skim mozzarella. I've been known to add tiny bits of sweet red pepper and sliced black olives. I keep these in the freezer and thaw them out the night before. Serve them with a little bit of tomato sauce for dipping.
I keep telling myself I'll try these with chopped up broccoli and sharp cheddar too.
I made the flautas with low fat sharp cheddar and homemade re-fried black beans. The little container is Plain Greek Yogurt for dipping and there is a whole wheat blue berry muffin. I've got some shredded chicken and colby-jack cheese waiting to be turned into a double batch for the freezer.  They are truely best served warm, but they like them cold in the lunch box.
