A Message from Rachael:

I was thankful to spend last Friday with my family. I enjoy the busy Fridays when Bailey's is running weekly, but oh was it great to have a lazy day! Now I'm looking forward to our off season Friday rituals. Most Fridays this winter you'll find us a home eating pizza and watching a movie. This will mean that the oven will be on before 7pm with the new time of day hydro billing, but it's so worth it! We make our own Gluten Free thin crust and top it with what is in the fridge and usually make a special trio to Vincenzo's for prosciutto and provolone. The Mozzarella balls from Local Dairy and so sweet and almost buttery - my favourite for on pizza and the chevre from Monforte goes so well with prosciutto, mushrooms, basil, red onions and a drizzle of good olive oil (no red sauce). We make lots of little pizzas, so everyone gets to top theirs exactly how they like it. The kids go heavy on the pineapple and we also make dessert pizzas - sliced apples with cinnamon sugar and a little cream drizzled on top.

Speaking of apples, today's breakfast request was for baked apples. It was something that I suggested on Saturday morning when pancakes were expected and wee needed something quick and warm for breakfast as we were heading out of town. It's so easy!
  1. Wash and core 4 apples (or as many as you need)
  2. Fill the cored out section with raisins, and some brown sugar and cinnamon mixed together - you could add nuts too if you'd like
  3. Place the apples in a heat safe dish and microwave until warm - about 15 minutes when you're using Honeycrisps, a bit less for other apples.
  4. Enjoy!
I was thinking that this would be really easy to prepare the night before and cook in the crock pot overnight on a low setting. Imagine the smell in your house when you wake up! Mmmm!
