More Summer Cookin

I've been cooking some pretty good stuff lately...if I do say so myself.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Pizza

Pillsbury Crust (found by cookie dough in the grocery store)

olive oil
1/2 onion sliced
marinara sauce
tomatoes
spinach
Italian cheese blend
Parmesan cheese
Goat cheese

Saute onions in olive oil until brown/caramelized.

For a crispy crust, bake the crust BY ITSELF on cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 9 minutes, then remove from oven, add toppings...spread marinara sauce on crust, then add onions, tomatoes, spinach, Italian cheese mixture, and finally the best part...goat cheese!!! Brush the edges with olive oil. Put back in oven...DIRECTLY on the oven rack (be very careful when you do this) to heat up toppings and melt the cheese. Remove when spinach is wilted and cheese is melted.


How about a few baby pictures before I share the next dish?!



Pan Fried Squash and Zucchini

2 squash
1 zucchini
1 cup flour
1 egg
1 1/2 cup bread crumbs (panko are my favorite)
vegetable oil

Heat pan on medium heat, pour in generous amount of vegetable oil.
Prepare flour, egg (beaten), and bread crumbs in separate bowls.
Cut squash and zucchini into 1/2 inch slices.
Rinse squash and zucchini in water (helps flour stick)
Coat vegetables in flour, then in egg, then bread crumbs.
Pan fry on both sides until golden brown.

Dip in ranch dressing!!!

It makes me hungry to see your great pizza and squash/zucchini. And I truly love seeing the photos of Stephen. Am I imagining it, or does he get cuter every day?

Love you and love to both big and little Stephen -- Lynn
