Happy Sunday, y’all!
Last cheater week, I promise. Maybe.
My life is still a crazy busy mess. So crazy that BF was actually in charge of this recipe. He made these Texas Toast Pizzas for the boys months and months ago and I noticed them when I was scrolling through the pictures on my phone while avoiding doing something important and time sensitive early last week.
ANYWAY. I casually mentioned to him that I was thinking about making them for this post and the next day all the ingredients were magically in the kitchen and he was ready to make them for me.
If I haven’t mentioned it yet, I don’t deserve him.
Also, yesterday he was outside washing his truck and came inside and said, “There’s a big long-haired German shepherd out here if you want to meet it” and yes, of course I want to pet the giant dog while you make small talk with the neighbors. This is exactly how I need this relationship to work.
My favorite coffee shop, Amor Ciego, used to be a 30 minute drive for me and I would find excuses to come out this way just so I could stop in but now it’s right down the street from me and that makes me happier than I can express. There’s nothing I love more than a $4 instagrammable almond milk latte with a surprise cookie on the side.
We’re also minutes away from Natural Grocers which I’d never heard of until I moved to Texas but it’s just, like, a tiny better priced Whole Foods and I’m there pretty much every day for a kombucha because they have an entire aisle dedicated to it. An entire aisle.
Oh! Speaking of! I got this book in the mail this week and we’re gonna become super hippies and make our own kombucha as soon as I order supplies and I’m so excited. (You can buy a kombucha starter at Natural Grocers if you have one near you!)

And have I mentioned how much I love that I don’t have to go through a gate to get to my house?! I’ve had to go through a guarded gate to get to my house since 2011. I have been searched at least once a week since then. And, by the way, I never have windows on my Jeep so if I’m smuggling anything on post, you’ll see it. But that’s beside the point.
I wouldn’t even leave my house in sweatpants for fear of getting searched and looking like a disaster.
Now? Sweatpants, no makeup, in the Taco Bell drive thru at 7 am and not worrying about being judged by some guy at the gate for it. *insert sassy emoji girl*
Still listening to Food Freedom Forever and also really loving her Instagram stories. I find her so inspiring in so many ways. I’m really into watching people make healthy stuff on IG stories right now and my current faves are No Crumbs Left, I Heart Umami, and The Defined Dish.

Oookay, now we can talk about these Texas Toast Pizzas.
Quit doing your mini pizzas on English muffins or pitas or anything else. You need to be keeping a box of Texas toast in the freezer at all times for pizza emergencies.
These are ready in, like, 10 minutes and everyone loves them. You just bake the Texas toast about half as long as the box instructions say, top them with pizza sauce, cheese, and whatever toppings you like! I love using the tiny pepperoni because they’re just so darn cute.
- Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 8 Texas toasts on it. Bake in preheated oven for 3 minutes. Remove from oven and top each one with about 1 tablespoon of sauce, 1/4 cup cheese, and 1 tablespoon of the topping. Bake for another 4 - 5 minutes, until sauce is melted and crust is golden and crispy.
