Project 365 – Froggy Went A-Courtin

We found this little fellow stuck in our window well last night and my sons rescued him.  Frogs and toads are forever getting trapped down there.  Invariably I always seem to get this song stuck in my head when we bring out the rescue party.  I sang the few bits I could remember to my kids and then decided to look it up.  Do yourself a favor and have a listen.  I guarantee it will put a smile on your face today.  :)

Project 365 – Sun Dried Tomato & Artichoke Heart Pizza

Having spent the last couple of days working on a rather ho-hum, boring, and altogether tedious (not to mention very draining) project, I found I had to pull tonight’s dinner and P365 photo out of a hat.  So, satisfying my kiddos with something much more palatable to their persnickety taste buds, I concocted this fabulously delicious pizza for myself.

I was too doggone tired and hungry to come up with a better image for today.   But for inquiring minds, and more particularly for my own future reference, I will share my “rough draft” recipe for this delicious pizza since I didn’t actually measure the ingredients when making my pizza.

Sun Dried Tomato & Artichoke Heart Pizza

2 t. olive oil
1/4 c. sun-dried tomatoes (I used dehydrated garden tomatoes, re-hydrated briefly in hot water and drained)
1/2 c. artichoke hearts, drained (I used Sam’s Club jarred artichoke hearts… not marinated)
pinch crushed red pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
splash of dry white wine
fresh mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
1 small pre-made pizza crust (I make four small crusts from this recipe and then freeze: http://www.food.com/recipe/thin-pizza-crust-95048)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium high heat.  Add tomatoes, artichoke hearts, crushed red pepper, and garlic.  Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add white wine and continue cooking for about 1-2 minutes more.  Remove from heat.  Top pre-made crust with mozzarella, tomato and artichoke mixture, and parmesan cheese.  Bake for 8-12 minutes until edges are golden.  Pour yourself a big, fat glass of white wine and chow down!  You’re welcome.  :D
