Chicken Nuggets and Pizza

This is the year that I am plunging into the effort to only (ok, let's be realistic here. MOSTLY) serve GOOD food in my home. I pledge to serve real food to not only myself but to my family and my daycare family. I've always tried to feed the kiddos well. We have always eaten lots of fruits and vegetables. However, a couple times a week I'd serve kid-friendly meals in order to appease the kids. With my Year of Less I'm taking hot dogs, chick strips and frozen pizza off the menu.

Here's a couple new recipes I've tried this month ~

Homemade Chicken Nuggets
  • Three Chicken Breast cut up into chunks
  • 2-3 T Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 C. Whole Wheat flour
  • A few shakes of salt
  • A shake of pepper
  • A couple pinches of Wildtree Garlic and Herb Blend
Heat coconut oil on medium heat.
Mix dry ingredients
Dredge chicken through flour mix.
Drop into pan. 

Easy, yummy, and most the kids like it.

At Laurie's Little Sprouts we do two things on Pizza Friday. As the name suggests, we eat pizza. We also do the Friday song and dance. All day. It goes like this (loud and full of enthusiasm) IT'S FRIDAY! IT'S FRIDAY! PRAISE THE LORD IT'S FRIDAY! Sometimes we'd have homemade pizza but mostly I would resort to frozen pizza. Not anymore. Haven't had a frozen pizza since 2011 and we're almost through January. Although I like the Wildtree Pizza Dough, I found another recipe for pizza dough that I really like. I have to plan a head a little bit to get the dough going but other than that it is quite simple. It's also quite yummy.

 Recipe for pizza dough can be found lost. I hate it when I do that. I've made this pizza for the last three weeks however I'm at a loss. I do know that I used organic whole wheat flour, yeast, and although the recipe called for olive oil I used Wildtree Tuscan European Dipping Oil (grapeseed oil) which gave the pizza crust great flavor!
 Next I add Wildtree Perfect Pizza Blend seasonings to a can of tomato paste.
 Spread on the pizza sauce. Add a few artichoke on MY slice and topped with cheese.
 My plate! Doesn't it look wonderful? It was delicious!
