Life is full of compromises. Sometimes you have to give a little to get a little and that’s what I did for this dish.
I wanted my boys to eat some healthy cabbage and chia seeds and in exchange I used their favorite store bought dressing as a bargaining chip. It worked like a charm! We’ve had this dish at least 3 times this summer.
The most popular question I get when I tell people I joined a CSA (the farm) is how do we eat it all?
Every week I pick up a share of fresh vegetables from the farm and every week, I also wonder how we’re gonna eat them, but somehow we do, one way or another.
Is it possible for a meal to have an origin story? If so this may be one of the funniest. Well not funny ha ha but funny as in strange? Interesting? Weird?

I was going to call this “reverse pizza” or “upside down pizza” but that doesn’t quite describe it right. I had an idea to use a spreadable cheese for the “sauce” and then fresh garden tomatoes as the “cheese” for a quick pizza like dish on a tortilla.
I cooked something besides burgers or fish sticks! YAY! It’s been crazy in these parts. The Husband now plays tennis in the evening, I’ve been playing catch-up after my BlogHer Vacation in NY and frankly, I’ve been uninspired in the kitchen.
Today I decided to put an end to the cooking drought and defrost some chicken. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with them I just knew I wanted to cook. Read the rest of this post
