It’s Earth Day.
I should be capitalizing on a perfectly timed Earth Day post offering subscribers some kind of shiny (and earthy) printable, but I’m the homeschool mom who woke up and said, “Oh crap! It’s Earth Day.
I have a giant pile of laundry on my bed that looks like it’s going to eat me, and a 9 year old who’s already giving me a hard time about his morning routine.
We have 5 more weeks of school.
We all need the break. In some ways I wish I had more time. We have much to do in that five weeks.
In other ways, those five weeks can’t pass soon enough.
I’ve considered year round school in the past, but quite frankly, I don’t think we’d survive.
We need a summer break!
So behind the recipe and crappy iPhone picture of food, know that I just realized it’s Earth Day and I’m just hoping to make it through the day without yelling at my kids.
I have four days of homework to complete in my bible study before tomorrow morning and I actually need an idea for dinner because I suck at meal planning. The recipe I’m sharing was waiting in drafts for a day like today.
A day when it will be a miracle if I actually pull off dinner.
By His grace, ya’ll.
By His grace.
I’m always on the hunt for easy weeknight dinners!
By “easy” I mean dinners that require my husband to grill the main ingredient.
I don’t mess with the grill.
I’m all 1950’s about three things around here.
1. Taking out the trash.
2. Pumping gas.
3. Using the grill.
Some things are just for dudes. Thankfully, I have three.
Who likes homemade pizza?
Pizzas are always a big hit around here. They’re fun to make and even more fun to eat!
Whenever we do pizza night we usually make two. One that’s boring, usually pepperoni or just cheese for the kids, and one that’s pure deliciousness for us.
This Greek grilled chicken pizza is our favorite!
While you’re chopping up all the goodies for this yummy pizza, send your man out to the grill with the chicken.
Here’s your grocery list:
- 2 chicken breasts-grilled and sliced
- 1 package fresh pizza dough (we buy this pre-made from our grocery bakery)
- 1 bag fresh baby spinach
- 4 cloves fresh garlic
- 1 medium white onion sliced thin
- 2 small tomatoes (I buy tomato on the vine)
- 1 4 oz. package herb and garlic feta cheese
- olive oil
- sliced calamata olives
- course sea salt
- cracked black pepper
1. Roll out your dough according to package direction. (I usually let it sit out on the counter for an hour or so before I use it. Put it on a bowl and cover it with a towel.)
2. Drizzle with olive oil
3. Layer ingredients (spinach first, chicken last). Don’t worry about the spinach mountain. It will wilt! Just load it on there and pile everything else on top of it.
4. Drizzle more olive oil over the whole thing.
5. Bake at 400 degrees until crust is golden brown (about 10-12 minutes).
Did ya’ll see the perfectly timed surprise God gave me last week?
