Breakfast:  Blueberry Waffles
Lunch: Turkey and Cheese Sandwhiches
Dinner: Pizza
Just a lazy Saturday with only swimming lessons on the agenda for today. For lunch, I made turkey and cheese sandwhiches and since it was the first time they had lunch meat, I made them look cute.
For dinner, I made pizza using the same recipe for the dough.  This time, I split the dough in half and rolled it into 14" circles. On one, I put on half the pizza, hamburger and pepperoni, then cheese over the whole thing. For our pizza, I slowly cooked some red onions in olive oil and a little sugar. When they were carmalized, I spread them over the pizza. Then I thinly sliced two steaks that I had leftover and spread them over the pizza, then layed slices of cheddar cheese on top (I was out of mozzerella cheese!)  Cooked at 475 for 10 mins and VOILA!! we had pizza better than we could get out!

After the kids were in bed, I made a coffee cake for Sunday breakfast.  I was looking through some old cookbooks and found this one again. I had forgotten all about this recipe and was happy to have found it again.
