BBQ Chicken Pizza

These days I haven't felt much like cooking.  But being pregnant and all eating is VERY important and so I've had to find ideas and inspiration on figuring out what's for dinner ... usually I head over to pinterest.  Today I thought perhaps I would make a pizza from my pizza board on pinterest.

I came across this bbq chicken pizza and thought that sounded really good.  I decided to go the extra mile and make my own crust, too.  Homemade pizza crust is just so yummy!  I took a trip to the store and got all I needed and was ready to go.  So after a nap, I tackled dinner ... well, once I got to the barbeque sauce part of the recipe, I realize that I had a problem.  My America bought sauces were ... ahem ... quite expired ... BUT thankfully the recipe I was following had a recipe on there!  Phew!  And I could get all the ingredients {here another sigh of relief}! However, I did have to make one more store run - which thankfully is NOT far away, just a hassle and not something I wanted to do at 5:20 pm, when the masses go shopping (I'm not kidding!). 

Pizza Dough
3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon oil
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Stir together the water, yeast and sugar until foamy.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Put a small amount of oil in a bowl or stone or baking sheet.  Roll the dough in the oil, cover with plastic wrap (if you want) and let rise for 10 minutes or until larger in size.  Roll out the dough on the stone or baking sheet.  Sprinkle with a clover of minced garlic and pre-bake at 425°F/220°C for 3 minutes. 

BBQ Sauce
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chile sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons garlic
1 teaspoon ground mustard
fresh ground pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan, mix well and let simmer over low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool, place in a glass container and refrigerate until ready to use. {makes approximately enough for two pizzas - so the website says, but it made so much more!}

BBQ Chicken Pizza
2 boneless chicken breasts; cooked and chopped
bbq sauce
shredded mozzarellaonions
fresh cilantro

Coat the chicken well with the bbq sauce and put on prebaked pizza crust.  I tried to add some extra bbq sauce, since I have so much of it.  Sprinkle with chopped onions and shredded mozzarella.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  After it's done, sprinkle fresh cilantro on top.


You won't regret making it!!  It was super tasty!

NUK Magic Cup

Getting your little one to drink is not an easy task and switching from a bottle to sippy cups and then normal cups can be challenging. NUK has designed a new sippy cup. Finally a sippy cup that doesn't have little parts to wash! Check out what it's made out of:  The cup has three parts. A silicone part (the pink one) and two plastic parts.  Just pop the pink part into the turquoise ring and then screw it on the cup - DONE! Doesn't get much easier than that. And it doesn't matter where your little one puts their mouth, they can drink from it from any side!  It's a perfect fit for little hands. Although the tipping to actually drink is still a bit tricky and needs a little help from bigger hands, but once your little one is bigger this shouldn't be a problem anymore.  They say it's leak proof, which for the most part it is, however after turning over like the picture above, there is a little bit of water, but not much. And when it gets tossed on the floor, then…

Welcoming strangers into my home

For 16 weeks now, we have had a young refugee couple from Syria living with us. They have been married a little over a year and for the majority of that time have been separated from each other, since he made the journey to Austria alone and got everything in order so that she could come legally.
 Let me backtrack a bit and tell you how it all started. As the refugee crisis really started to explode here, facebook was buzzing with articles, videos, pictures, etc. of the situation. I read a lot. I saw a lot. I was moved. I was troubled. But what could I do? I had a three year old and one year old at home.
 ... I could teach some German. But when? ... I could donate clothes and other items that were needed. But that didn't seem like enough. ... I could give money. But I wanted something more tangible. 
I would put my youngest to bed and during those days, she needed lots of TLC in order to get to sleep. I kept thinking about the refugees and how they didn't have a home. I kept hea…

10 Months

Baby Z is ten months today.  She's moving into toddlerhood and out of babyness...boo hoo....She's starting to have her own little will and get angry when things don't go her way.  She's realized she can make us laugh.  She loves watching little kids and squeals with delight.  Stroller rides are a favorite and also nice for a little snooze at times.  Cheerios are another favorite {she's a great eater, just not a good drinker}.  Sleeping through the night is almost an everyday occurrence {PTL!}!  Her sleeping postions are always quite amusing...you never know how you will find her.  She's incredibly curious and loves getting into things {empty boxes, laundry baskets, bags, etc is highly entertaining}.  If a cellphone or computer are somewhere near her, she doesn't waste any time getting to them.  She has so much energy.  Naps are kept short, often a half hour, if I'm lucky an hour. 

I'm so thankful for this sweet, little, energy bundle.  I look forwar…
