Call Your Friends - it's pizza time!

French Bread or Flat Bread Pizza! Yum! It's quick, easy, filling and fun. Sure you can buy some pre-packaged French Bread Pizza, but it's not the same, nor does it have the robust flavors that making your own French Bread Pizza has.

The first time I had this quick and easy pizza was at a teacher's Christmas gathering at a co-worker's home. There were loads of toppings we could choose from to make our own individualized pizza creation. Every pizza was as unique as the people at the party.

While the pizza was baking in the oven we had a chance to play a quick game of Trival Pursuit. The evening turned out to be a great success and one that I would copy in years to come.

Have an event coming up? Make your meal as special as your gathering by serving French Bread Pizza. You can't go wrong with this menu, because everyone eats what they like. With French Bread Pizza for dinner you'll spend more quality time with your friends without any extra cooking. It's a meal that's sure to please. Follow @favored110

Recipe & Take-Out Menu Organizer

I don't know what others do with their recipe and meal related items, but I used to keep my take-out menus in a drawer by the phone. Instead of throwing the old ones out they just got shoved to the back of the desk. So I decided to put them in a folder to keep them organized. This convienent binder/organizer would have come in handy, but I didn't know it existed. There is plenty of room for menus, recipes and other meal topics in this handy three ring binder organizer.
