Summer Snackin’ Made Easy

Tags: ,



Well, I finally managed to snap some pics of my 60 second lunch that never seems to last more than 2 minutes on the table. My boys and I love having these pizza roll-ups for lunch or even a midday snack when we are on the go. Who can beat lunch in 60 seconds? Cheesy, saucy and not that bad for you either. Check em’ out and grab one next time you are impatient for lunch, you’ll be glad you did!

Pizza Roll Ups

Guerrero Whole Wheat Tortillas (they are the best around, I find them at Walmart)
Handful of Tillamook shredded mozzarella cheese
5-6 turkey pepperoni’s per tortilla
2-3 Tablespoons of Ragu Pizza sauce per tortilla

1. Place tortilla on microwave safe plate. Sprinkle tortilla with cheese, layer with pepperoni’s and drizzle with pizza sauce. Microwave for 30-60 seconds in microwave until cheese is melted. Roll up and dip in additional pizza sauce if desired.

Graham Cracker Bruschetta

    I just remembered that I had asked you a question last week and forgot to check your response. I’m glad you still have time to respond to ALL your fans.
    I didn’t realize I said my husband worked for pixar, it’s his good friend. Sorry! My husband’s job isn’t that cool.
    I did go to that market and it was perfect.
    I made shortcake, and a cake from stephanie’skitchen.
    It was like the better than sex cake, everyone loved it.
    How are you surviving the heat? I was outside working and couldn’t take it. I don’t know how you bake in this weather.
    Love your blog, I don’t know how you do it.

    I’m so sure I would love those roll-ups! I have never seen turkey pepperoni, you got me curious now! And those cute bruschetti, your kids are so lucky to have a mom that planes fun treats for them!

    This is perfect for dinner tonight – it’s me and the kids again and I’m still on a holiday from cooking and entertaining family for the past two weeks. We have all the ingredients for both the pizza roll-ups and the yummy bruchetta snacks.

    Thanks for always posting such fun and yummy recipes!

    My kids really love grilled pizza as well. It’s so easy to put together pizza dough and have them create their own pizzas – it tastes so much better on the grill and my kids eat twice as much that way – plus I think it’s healthier b/c I can have them ‘try’ new things. We always have the fixings around for a quick, easy dinner – I like the more adult version – pine nuts, basil, caramelized onion, fresh tomato and mozzarella, etc…
