Yep, today is going to be a real pain in the (insert expletive for rear end here). Six point five hours of my life is being taken away from me today. Yes, people, I will be stuck in a classroom today for my first aid/cpr/aed re-cert…oh, I am soooo thrilled. After being out of school for almost two years, being confined to a classroom setting for even 2 minutes is torture. This should definitely go well. Who knows if I will even get a lunch break? Of course, food is always the first thing on my mind. So, guess who has snacks prepped? This chick right here.
I took some fresh pita bread…got this from the Greek place down the street and
Bam! Homemade Pita Chips!
Served with two of my faves…Hummus and Tzatziki
I would say that the person who sits next to me today is going to be very, very lucky.
I’m a sharer.
Baked Garlic-Parmesan Pita Chips:
4 round pieces of pita bread, cut into sixths
extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
6 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place the cut slices of pita bread onto the baking sheet and toss with the evoo (I used about 1/4 cup for the entire pan), making sure to coat both sides of each slice of pita.
3. Top each slice of pita with half a teaspoon of minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of Parmesan.
4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
