Farewell my matcha green tea muffins!

March 10, 2009

I love green tea flavored anything  (almost anything)  so I was excited to discover this Match Green Tea cake mix from Trader Joe’s.   I made muffins out of this mix on the weekends from time to time and thought it was a simple breakfast to whip up since all you need to do is add butter and water.

So I told my Mom about them, anyone else who would listen and of course, Boyfriend.  I brought a box to my parent’s house when I went home one weekend being the nice person I am.   Then I discovered that they were being DISCONTINUED!!!  WHA?!?!?

This past weekend I made my last box of Matcha Green Tea muffins for Boyfriend and I to eat.  The expiration date on the box was April 2009 so I thought I should consume them before I forgot.

Farewell.  You will be missed.  *chomp chomp*

Homemade pizza!!

September 16, 2008

Contrary to popular belief, Boyfriend and I do not go out to eat all the time.  In fact, we cook quite often!  Boyfriend is quite adventurous and loves trying new recipes.  He actually watches the Food Network way more than I do.

I’ve been on a pizza kick for the past week and a half and we decided that it’d be great to make our own pizza at home.  We bought Trader Joe’s “garlic and herb ready-to-bake pizza dough” and started from there.

 After letting the dough sit for 20 minutes, I shaped it on the baking pan with some flour.  I used my hands because we don’t own a rolling pin and this is the shape we ended up with. 

I always order mushroom pizza when I go out to eat so Boyfriend was kind enough to oblige to a meatless pizza.

We also added garlic along with basil and garlic chives from my herb garden. 

This was such a simple meal!  The dough is only $1.29 and all of the ingredients were things we had at home.  We used spaghetti sauce for the pizza sauce, “Mexican blend” shredded cheese, mushrooms, garlic, basil and chives.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and it’s ready for consumption!  Boyfriend liked it so much that he wants to have it again for dinner… tomorrow! 😀
