Food posts have been few and far between for the last few months. There are a few reasons for this:
- I am on a diet. I started Weight Watchers about a month ago. I find it hard to cook things that I can’t eat. If they are in my house, I will eat them. So I just don’t cook or bake all that much. If I do, the meals are super simple with very few ingredients. I may start including more of these recipes here but I wonder if you (my reader) will feel that they are a waste of time. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
- Evan and I were away for 2 weeks. We did have a condo with a kitchen but we stuck to tried and true favorites with few ingredients so we didn’t have to buy so many groceries. Spaghetti, anyone?
- I haven’t been feeling the love for food blogging for a while. So many blogs have become super stylized with a focus on super high end and difficult to prepare food. That just isn’t me. I focus on real food that my family will eat. As you are here reading, I think you like that focus so I will continue to post recipes as I come up with them.
I also find that summer is a time when I love simpler foods. Grilled sausages, a salad and a slice of watermelon is a great meal in the summer! I hope you will stick with me and let me know what you would like to see more of here on MerryAboutTown!
And now….one of those recipes that isn’t really a recipe. With Weight Watchers I only get 26 points per day to “spend” on food. I spend a lot of time saying “Should I eat this or that.” When I find something that is tasty, fills me up and doesn’t “cost” one billion calories, I eat it a lot. This veggie flatbread has become a favorite of mine. Easy, delicious and low calorie = WIN. Normally I don’t include specific brand names but in this case I will because I give the WW points value.
- 1 Flatout Flatbread I used the original but I want to try their others
- 3 Tbsp pizza sauce
- Your favorite veggies for topping. I used bell pepper onion, mushrooms and pineapple.
- 1/3 cup Kraft Herb and Garlic cheese with a touch of Philly
- a sprinkle of Italiano Seasoning
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place flatout on a cookie sheet. Spread with pizza sauce.
- Add veggies, sprinkle with cheese, add Italiano seasoning.
- Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until crust is crisp (ish) and cheese is melted.
- Weight Watchers Plus Points.
