What We Eat Wednesday #25!

Happy Wednesday! I got my behind into gear and shared this amazingly tasty recipe for Hawaiian BBQ Pizza yesterday. The recipe originated from the Food Network Magazine, which is my absolute favorite magazine. Best part is that it is Jonathan's favorite too, I think that may be the reason we mesh so well, we both LOVE food!

Along with my Hawaiian BBQ Pizza recipe, I wanted to re-share my other recipe from our Food Network nights, Sausage and Polenta. Yum, yum, yum!

Look how delicious and perfect for summer this recipe is! I'm so excited to feature Erlene from My Pinterest Ventures. This recipe for the Hawaiian Ice Cream {Hey! I think I have a theme going on here!} only has THREE ingredients. Yes, this what you need in your life! Now it's your turn to share some more tasty creations with Orchard Girls and I! Don't forget to check out Kayla & Kenzie's new recipe too AND come back next week to see if you were featured! 

What We Eat Wednesday #25

Hawaiian BBQ Pizza!

Today's recipe is directly from my favorite, Food Network Magazine. Jonathan and I have a monthly "Food Network Night" where we each create a recipe from the monthly magazine. This month I chose to make this tasty Hawaiian BBQ Pizza. It looked simple enough for a week night dinner and movie in. With a little prep, you will be enjoying this sweet and spicy twist of a pizza!


1 Pound Pizza Dough (I buy mine at Trader Joe's!)
1/2 Pineapple, Peeled, Core & Cut into Rings
1 Bunch of Green Onions
1/4 Cup of Barbecue Sauce
1 Tomato, Diced
1 Cup Shredded Pepper Jack *
1 Cup Shredded Muenster Cheese *
1/4 Pound of Deli-Sliced Ham

* I couldn't find these in shredded or in blocks, so I bought the sliced thinly kind and diced into small pieces.


  1. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. 
  2. Remove your pizza dough from the package and follow as directed. The dough I buy always wants it to sit out of the package for at least 20 minutes prior to rolling it out. 
  3. Begin the work on all the prep, cutting and chopping the pineapple, green onions, tomatoes, cheese and ham. 
  4. If you have a grill pan or BBQ, you can do it that way. I don't so I preheated a pan on high heat. I put the pineapple on there, charring the edges before flipping them. You can also grilled the whites of the green onion for extra flavor.  
  5. Pre-grease a pizza pan and begin rolling out your dough on a floured surface. Move the rolled dough on the pizza pan. 
  6. Combine the barbecue sauce and tomatoes in a small bowl, spread the mixture onto the pizza dough. 
  7. Sprinkle the cheeses on next. 
  8. Top with the grilled pineapple, ham and some of the green onions (including the charred whites). 
  9. Finish the pizza with the remaining cheese and place in the oven. 
  10. Cook according to your dough package, about 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and the crust is golden. 
  11. Remove from the oven, slice, serve and ENJOY! 
Make sure you come back tomorrow for What We Eat Wednesday hosted by Orchard Girls and I. 

Cheap, Easy & Organized Team Supply Bins!

Hey everyone! It's been a minute since I have sat down and focused on a post. I've been busy camping and spending time with my friends and family, everything a teacher on summer should be doing, right?? Oh and I also spent a little bit of time in my classroom. I'm one of those {crazy} people who LOVE to get everything done before we have to go back for our meetings and such in August.

I shared this on my Facebook page the other day and had a lot of questions about the blue bins and the black drawers. Good for you and me that I had already planned on blogging on both of them!

So here is what I did: I found these awesome cups at Ikea. They are $1.99 for a 6 pack. I then took a drive up to Dollar Tree and found these bins for $1 each. Lucky for me, the cups fit in here perfectly! I totally know this because I had the cups in my purse when I went in there!

Right there you are at $3.00 per table group. This is the same price as one of those table caddies {I can never seem to find these at Michaels} minus the organized brightness! I created, cut and laminated the team labels and slapped them on the fronts with velcro.

Now onto the organized part, each cup with hold their supplies. You can easily have a cup for each student but I like the simple look of everything being sorted. So one cup will be pencils, markers, glue sticks, colored pencils, scissors, etc. I'll make sure to update the picture once I actually have school supplies in there! There you go: cheap, easy and organized as promised!
