Friday Favorites: 10/3/14 + {Krusteaz giveaway!}

Happy Friday!! I am SO excited for ANOTHER! weekend with nothing planned. Looking forward to play time with Luke, couch time with Scott (he’s been out of town since Wednesday morning) and maybe a trip to the apple orchard <—didn’t happen last weekend!


Here are my favs from this week:

Candle weather. . .


BP91 + AdvoCare bling


Beautiful fall running weather. <love> 64 degree perfection.


Thursday morning coffee. Even though it’s one of the reasons I am doing the challenge, I still love it. Caribou caramel skim latte FTW.


Easy dinners. –> I was recently sent some of the new Krusteaz Flatbread mixes to try out. Sunday afternoon during football seemed like a great time. I love bruschetta anything, so I decided to make my own spin on bruschetta flatbread.


I’m super nervous about anything with yeast, so I wasn’t too sure what to think of the yeast packet. . .


But making the dough couldn’t be any easier. Mix the yeast, water, oil and flatbread mix all together until it forms a ball.


Let rest in a warm place, covered, to allow the yeast to activate.


While I was waiting, I gathered my bruschetta ingredients: 1 can diced tomatoes


And cheese.


I don’t think you can get any simpler than that, right?

Any cheese is fine. .. literally whatever you have in the fridge. So I happened to have leftover pizza mozzarella cheese, Colby Monterrey jack and parmesan. Delicious.


Anyone else snack on parmesan cheese while cooking?


Spread dough out on pan. Bake until golden brown. Then, top with bruschetta mix and broil on high for about 3-4 minutes until cheese is melty and hot.


And of course I had my helper. How adorable in that apron?


Sunday afternoon perfection. Best when enjoyed during a Packer game. Smile

  4. Yummm, I want the garlic and onion! I also totally snack on the cheese while cooking, or more likely while Riley is cooking. I follow him around the kitchen eating bites of food and get in his way. Good thing he loves me. Happy Friday!

    Oh my gosh I always eat the Parmesan when I”m cooking, or any cheese for that matter!!!

    I was always worried about yeast too but my husband makes a mean pizza crust and yeast is the magic trick!!!

    Treated myself to a venti London Fog today just because it’s FRIDAY!!!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. That pizza…you know I’m pretty sure you could just have a tomato and cheese salad like that and not have to back it too. 😉

    Italian Herb

  10. That bread looks delish! I am NOT ready for it to be candle weather yet, though …

    I keep thinking it would be fun to do the orchard thing, but I just know that I would take home like 292934 apples … and that’s too many for our little family :). Maybe I will anyway, who knows!

    We make a chili dog pizza that I think would be great with the garlic and onion flatbread.

  22. Never heard of the Krusteaz pizza crusts before. Interesting! I would most like to try the whole wheat flavor–I just love that…”earthiness” of whole wheat.
