Bodhi says hi!
He is looking especially handsome this morning, no?
I happened upon something especially cool a couple of days ago. HEALTHY CALZONES. LAZY GIRL’S CALZONE. Pizza is one of those things that I cannot quit so when I did SFL I was glad to see that pita pizzas were a’ok! I cannot believe I didn’t think to do this before. Thankfully Meghann over at Graduate Meghann did the thinking for me!
The results in photos!
*Organic Pasta Sauce
*Mother Nature’s Whole Wheat Pita Bread (oh so local)
*Soeby’s low fat mozza – 1/2 oz
*PC Goat Cheese 1/2 oz
*BASIL FROM MY HERB GARDEN YAY!
*Yellow, Orange and Red Baby Tomatoes
*White Onion too! (Not pictured)
I threw the veggies in the oven to soften them up since pita crisps up so fast.
I loaded the fresh basil in first and then the cooked veggies.
HOLY WOW. It was really really good. I loved the mixing of the goat cheese and the mozza. Each bite was a new adventure. It was a bit messy but with the plate held pretty much DIRECTLY TO MOUTH I managed quite well.
I paired my lovely calzone with a half cup of Imagine Butternut Squash Soup and a broccoli slaw and romaine salad with some all natural Newman’s Own Lighten Up Balsamic Vinegarette. Nice looking ingredient lists for both! I am not usually into the packaged soups but my lovely GB brought it home for me from the states so I wanted to give er a go. It was kind of bland but some pepper and paprika fixed that up post haste. I am pretty much a spice skank so I always double the spice amounts in pretty much every recipe.
As for that massive bottle of balsamic, I got that at the NEW SAINT JOHN COSTCO. They have some cool organic things! I got a GIGANTIC JAR of Maranatha Unsalted Almond butter for $6.99. Like three times the size of the grocery store ones and for 3 bucks less. They had cereal too. Big boxes of it. If I didn’t already have like 10 different types of cereal I would pick up some of the Yogi cereal that they have.
I am going to Sense of Tokyo tonight! Bruce Sweeney (Simply for Life Founder) facebooked about how they have a Bruce Sushi Plate with Brown Rice. You best be believin I will be asking for this tonight. I am also going to take photos and blog about it. (I may as well just admit to being a health food blogger now.)
Here are two of the chefs hard at work at the Fundy Food Fest!
