|Pizza (and pattern!) found here|
Lessons learned: 1. No one should ever, ever drink anything containing guarana. It's very, very bad for you.
2. No one past the late-night-cramming sessions age should drink anything containing caffeine at 5pm.
3. Weird recipes happen when Mom consumes caffeinated, sugary beverages before cooking dinner!
My inspiration for dinner was a bag of baby spinach that was fast coming up on it's expiration date. I threw in in the double-boiler, and steamed it briefly until the leaves were wilted. Then I pureed the spinach in my fancy-schmancy new food processor (woo-hoo!).
Next, I layered tortillas into a super simple pizza, in this order:
Tortilla, cover with about 2 tbsp of spinach puree, sprinkle with parmesean, and a little bit of shredded cheese.
2nd tortilla, cover with marinara sauce, and cover with plenty of shredded cheese.
I made two, but I really only need one for all four girls.
Not surprising, #1 and #2 were extremely suspicious, and not happy about the green layer. #1 said the combination of spinach and marinara tasted "weird", but #2 actually like it. #3 and #4 picked theirs apart, just like they do with their sandwiches. The biggest surprise? My husband loved it! He has already requested that I make it for our annual Halloween party!
