Happy Valentine's Day...a little early. What are your plans for V-day this year? Are you splurging big-time to declare your love, or keeping things minimal and special? Whatever your plans, make sure to snuggle up to those you love this year, and don't miss out on an opportunity to tell them how you feel. My mom always made Valentine's Day special by giving us cards, making or buying a cake, and maybe getting us a little present or something. We always had someone who made us feel special on V-day. I'm kind of determined to keep that tradition going for my kiddos. I have a heart-shaped cake that I'll be making, and I have cards for everyone. I can't wait to share the love! :)
On a completely different note...I had a hankering for some pizza yesterday, so I totally made up a new little recipe! Wanna hear it? Here you go...
WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLA PIZZAS
- Whole wheat tortillas--as many as you'd like
- Pizza or spaghetti sauce (whichever you have on hand)
- Store-bought pesto sauce
- Kale or spinach
- Mozzarella cheese
- Crushed walnuts
- Meat, if desired (sausage, chicken, or pepperoni)--I left this out, since I was only making a couple of tortillas

Preheat oven to 400º. Place tortillas on a baking sheet, and spread 1 dollop of pesto and 1-2 dollop(s) of spaghetti or pizza sauce over the tortillas. Spread it to within a 1/2 inch of the edge. Then sprinkle shredded spinach or kale over the sauce, then crushed walnuts. Now, layer mozzarella cheese over the entire tortilla, followed by meat (if desired). I like to sprinkle a little pizza seasoning over the top. Then, pop the pizzas in the oven for around 10 minutes, or until the cheese begins to brown. Remove from oven, slice up, serve, and enjoy!
