As well it would be nice to get back to our regular school routine and earlier bedtime. In some areas the kids are already back at school however we still have one week of summer break so it’s time to get ready for back to school. Tomorrow we will be off shopping for school supplies and since the little ones loved car bingo so much I found a school supplies bingo card for them too. This should make the shopping trip a little easier and of course more fun! Check it out: http://bogglesworldesl.com/bingo/schoolsupplies.php
Also here is a recipe for you since some of you are already packing lunches next week and I know I always have trouble coming up with new ideas. Enjoy!
Wicked Pizza Muffins
These calcium-rich muffins freeze well, can be packed in a lunch box straight from the freezer and will thaw by recess.
Servings: Makes 12 muffins
Prep Time: about 25 minutes
2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) each salt and dried basil
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
1 cup (250 mL) tiny cubes old orange cheddar
1 cup (250 mL) plain yogurt
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, melted
1/2 cup (125 mL) finely chopped red or green sweet pepper (optional)
1/4 cup (50 mL) pizza sauce
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded mozzarella
1.Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, basil and baking soda until combined. Stir in cheddar cubes.
2.In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, eggs and butter until smooth. Stir into flour mixture just until well combined and no dry spots remain; stir in sweet pepper (batter will be very thick). Spoon batter into muffin cups, dividing evenly. Spoon 1 tsp (5 mL) pizza sauce on top of each muffin; sprinkle each with shredded mozzarella.
3.Bake about 20 minutes, until golden and a toothpick inserted in centre of one of middle muffins comes out clean. Let muffins cool in pan at least 5 minutes before removing, then let cool completely on a wire rack. (Freeze muffins in an airtight container for up to 1 month; defrost at room temperature.)
Awesome! Just one question…can I have one?
Until next time,
