It has been 81 days since my last blog post and I am astonished at how much my life has changed since February 23. Not only did I take on a completely new overwhelming, yet extremely rewarding job, but I moved into my dream condo downtown Chicago in the heart of ‘the loop.’
I’m happy to say I’m finally beginning to feel settled into both, and with a little spare time on my hands, I’m BACK IN BUSINESS! Wahooo! Time for a celebration, and by that I mean, a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies! :)
There were several times when I paced back and forth in the grocery store debating the items in my cart—99% of the time, these things went back on the shelf because I couldn’t justify stuffed chicken breasts, salted pita chips, and fresh squeezed orange juice over paint, packaging tape, and pillows.
It wasn’t long before I started to get creative in my cramped and empty kitchen. With a few spices on hand, a drizzle of olive oil, and a few slices of pita bread, I crafted homemade pita chips in less than 5 minutes. And to be completely honest, they taste better than the $5.99 16oz. bag of Stacy’s; but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Enjoy!
1 package pita bread (I used Kronos Honey Wheat)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
(1) Preheat oven to 400° F; Line cookie sheet with tin foil and spray lightly with cooking spray
(2) Cut each pita into 8 triangles or ‘wedges
(!!) Watch carefully for they burn easily
