began and ended with two fevers; which meant lots of snuggles, movies, a long bath and early bed times. But it also included family, pastels, fresh flowers, bows, little to no cooking, a first birthday, and many thoughts on the real meaning of easter, which helped me shake the discouragement I've felt this past week. A rejuvenating weekend to be sure; how was yours?
cinnamon pita chips
a few pitas
cinnamon sugar (recipe below)
preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
cut up the pitas into squares, wedges, what have you.
Brush both sides with melted butter, then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar onto both sides and place evenly on baking sheet.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until pitas are crisp, flipping halfway.
Sprinkle again with a bit of cinnamon and sugar right out of the oven, then transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve with strawberries mixed with maple syrup and lemon zest, and a bit of maple sweetened creme fraiche; of course.
1/2 cup sugar
2 - 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Combine and store in airtight container or shaker.
You can use natural cane sugar, brown sugar, or sucanat that has been processed a bit to be finer for the cinnamon sugar.
