Becky’s Bread

Yesterday Becky started perusing “Cook with Confidence” and decided she wanted to make the pizza recipe. She read the all the instructions to me before checking with me on the list of ingredients. We were missing tomatoes and olives. I suggested that she make it the next day after we had been to the grocery store. Last night she pulled out “In Bread” and found a wrap she wanted to try but it was a little late for lunch. Today Becky planned, prepped and with a little help, prepared all the meals. Yahoo! 

For lunch she made the Ultimate Salad Wrap with tortillas which is number 12 on our challenge. Spread the flatbread with cashew cheese. We used hummus. Layer with lettuce, grated carrot, mashed avocado, thinly sliced red pepper, slices of cucumber, thinly sliced onion, alafalfa sprouts and tahini sauce. We didn’t have avocado or alfalfa sprouts, so we added some grated cheese. Roll up and eat. 


They were really good. 


Tonight she made number 13, pita pizzas. Spread tomato paste on the pizza base. Add chopped thyme. Add the rest of the toppings, chopped onion, sliced pepper, sliced tomato, olives halved and pieces of mozzarella. 


Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 425F/220C for 12-15 minutes. We baked the pitas for 7-9 minutes. 


Here is the chef helping herself to a well deserved slice of gooeyness. Yum!


Today was a major accomplishment for Becky. It is hard for her to plan, organize and remember. She even set an alarm for herself so she wouldn’t forget to make the pizza. Amazing! It is hard for her to prepare meals when she can only use one hand, but she doesn’t give up. She did a fantastic job today and I am so proud of her! I’m also extremely grateful to her for planning and preparing meals for a day. How lucky am I 🙂


Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far!

    Thanks Jo. Becky is quite wonderful 🙂
    The recipe for the wrap was vegan, so it doesn’t use any animal products at all. We are not vegan and don’t have cashew cheese. I think it must be like cream cheese or goat cheese, but we used hummus instead. Tahini is sesame seed paste which is used to make hummus. We don’t have that either so mixed sour cream with lemon juice and garlic. We could have used peanut butter and made a satay sauce as well. I’m sure it will be good whatever you use 🙂

  3. The “pizza” looks terrific! I am, as always, excited that the two of you continue to explore what is possible, and what is often, delicious. Hearing of your trials and successes (and failures!) has become something I look forward to. Thank you both!
