Easy Weeknight Dinner Idea for Two (Vegetable Naan Pizza)
This week I wanted to feature a couple of easy weeknight dinner ideas for two. Recently I've been cooking for just two of us. Its so easy to default to making the same go to familiar meals all week long. But there are plenty of delicious AND easy meals out there that can help you get out of your routine rut when you are only cooking for two. These meals can also easily be doubled or tripled for those busy moms out there with large families. 

The first meal this week I wanted to highlight is a vegetable naan pizza. It's crispy, savory, and a cinch to throw together. 

Buy pre-made stone fire naan breads. I prefer the full size, but if you are baking for children, the smaller personal size will work great too. The secret to a good home made pizza is the ingredients. Skip the preshredded mozzarella and go with fresh buffalo mozzarella, or in our case, we used goat cheese. Skip the premade hormel pepperoni, and use salami or proshutto to switch things up. Wash and coat some asparagus with olive oil and scatter across your pizza. Then, the finishing is also very important. Use a balsamic glaze to add acidity and sweetness. Top with fresh italian herbs and a sprinkle of lavender salt. Bake in an oven until your cheese bubbles and your naan is golden around the edges. This idea is simple, healthy, and most importantly delicious. 

Hope this helps you busy moms get out of your culinary rut. Clean out your fridge, get creative, and make naan pizza's tonight! 
Steak & Mushroom Wraps
Tonights recipe is an elevated version of a fatty philly steak and cheese. This still has all the richness and goodness associated with a philly cheese steak, but with a much crisper and refined taste on your pallet. 

4 naan pitas
2 new york steaks
1 tablespoon olive oil
16 ounces mushrooms
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup spinach
pinch lavender salt

Salt and pepper your steak on both sides, grill until golden on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat your oil. Chop your mushrooms into strips and add them to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until all the liquid is steamed out and they begin to brown and crisp up. After letting your steak rest, cut that into strips as well. Remove your mushrooms from the skillet and warm your naan on both sides. Once warmed through, top with your mushrooms, steak, feta, and spinach. Fold into a wrap, and enjoy! 

This delicious beefy and filling wrap will have your family satisfied and their taste buds happy. Bon Appetite!
