Weekend Recap... So much Food

How was your weekend?

 Here we had a quiet and relaxing weekend.  Not much going on just some house cleaning and grocery shopping,  we were running pretty low.  Of course I went just before lunch so I was starving... but  as you can see it's not always a bad thing.
They recently closed  Trader Joe's by me...NOOOOOO!!!   Luckily they did open a Sprouts (think TJ's on a slightly bigger scale with more fruits, veggies, and well everything...they even have stuff like oat flour, chia seeds, and stuff that you can buy in bulk from these huge wine barrel type things) 
... so all is forgiven.

With all these tasty things in the house I had an itch to order pizza  cook  so Saturday night I tried my hand at eggplant pizzas. I have a zucchini pizza recipe on my Pinterest  page but I liked the idea of a bigger, heartier bottom, 
 and because I need  a cure for that pizza craving.
pizza, eggplant,

It was really easy to make just slice a large eggplant about 1/2 inch thick, then sprinkle a good amount of salt on top to "sweat" it and lay a paper towel on top (to soak up the extra moisture), let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour then wipe off any extra salt.  
Heat oven to 350 F, lay your eggplant on a cookie sheet (I lined mine with foil so I wouldn't have to scrub off stuck cheese cause I'm lazy like that) Then top with pizza or tomato sauce of your choice, skim-milk mozzarella and turkey pepperoni (or what ever other pizza topping you like).

This was GOOD....
  like I may be cured of my pizza craving forever, ok for at least another week. 
I had two of these and a light Caesar salad for dinner. Oh and they are even better the next day!

The rest of the weekend we did some more shopping at Ikea (me and the crazy cat lady lol) and the 99 cent store.  I was actually pretty shocked at some of the decent produce I got there.  Mushrooms, cauliflower and a big bag of mini peppers and they were all still fresh...not to bad. Sometimes eating healthy on the cheap is possible.
Girl takes after her pizza lovin mama...and I didn't even have a bite,  go me!!

So  did you try anything new this weekend? 


  1. Not sure I could stomach eggplant but glad you found a better alternative for the pizza! Great job!

    1. It can be a little mushy, but i think the topping did the trick :)

  2. OMG. Eggplant Pizza. Yes! I want it. And how's about I fry up the eggplant in coconut oil for a crispy crust. There's always that, too.

    1. LOL it really was good...let me know how it does in the coconut oil that sounds delish!
