Making Do (and a cheese tostada recipe)

Ok. I confess, I have not been grocery shopping in roughly two weeks (I really dislike grocery shopping with a toddler because 30 minutes in to it, she's screaming!!)....which means there is barely anything to eat in this house. Add in the fact that I rarely buy premade foods anymore and some seriously creativity was needed in the meal and snack department! Here's what I came up with...and a valuable reminder that necessity is the motherhood of invention (wonder if invention ever refused to pick up his crayons??).

Breakfast: I managed to throw together some old fashioned oatmeal with butter and brown sugar and some blueberries that we picked about two weeks ago and froze.
Snack: Frozen blueberries and frozen green peas and cheese tostadas--more on that below
Lunch: One miraculously uncovered can of low-sodium Campbell's chicken noodle soup that managed to escape the great pantry clean up...and more of those yummy cheese tostadas!

Ok, here is what I did to make cheese tostadas:
I found some whole wheat pitas in the freezer, along with some shredded cheese. Simply cut the pita in half, toast in the toaster, then spread with (healthy--as in Brummel and Brown or Smart Balance!) butter and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Place in microwave for 30 seconds--long enough for the cheese to melt but not for the toastada to get yucky! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
