Sunday SNAP Challenge

Breakfast consisted of toast with butter and vegemite spread.  The girls had a glass of milk each, Hubby had one, and I had two cups of instant coffee with milk and sugar. (Can you tell I'm not a morning person?)
Lunch - We made toasted sandwiches with ham, turkey and cheese. Hubby and I had another instant coffee with milk and sugar each.
Dinner was home made pizzas.  We used to buy the frozen pizza bases but they work out to about $1 each and taste like cardboard so about 2 years ago we tried making our own pizza dough and since then have not bought another frozen pizza base.  Our recipe is 2 tsp dried yeast, 1/2 tsp salt, 2+1/2 cups plain flour, 1 cup warm water, 1 tbsp oil (all in metric).  We have never had the bases turn out badly using this recipe.  Yes, it does take a lot of time (mix and knead, rest for 30 mins, knead and shape on trays, then top) but they taste great.  We used tomato paste (the rest of the jar from Friday's Strog.), dried Italian herbs, 600g mozzerella cheese, 1kg shredded ham, 150g sopressa, onion, olives, capsicum, mushrooms, pineapple and grated colby cheese for the top.  We doubled the dough mixture and made 8 pizzas in total.  We were catering for 5 adults, 3 kids, and ended up with 2 pizzas left over for lunch/dinner Monday.
Dessert was banana cake with cream cheese icing.  Hubby decided to use up the sad looking bananas on the bench that my mum had passed on to us earlier in the week.
