I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chicken Pita Lunch

My aversion to making lunches took a backseat today as I had some sort of inspiration which resulted in this.

3 small pitas
1 cup cooked, sliced chicken
some shredded cheese (cheddar here)
arugula
a few paper-thin slices of sweet potato
olive oil
black pepper

Béchamel sauce with garlic:

1 tbsp margarine or butter
1 tbsp flour
1/8 tsp salt
pinch pepper
1/2 cup milk
1 garlic clove, minced

Heat the marg in a saucepan and add the flour, salt and pepper. Whisk in the milk, continuing until slightly thickened. Stir in the minced garlic.

Lay the pitas on a lined baking sheet and spread with béchamel. Add the chicken, cheese and sweet potato slices. Drizzle with some olive oil and add a few grinds of fresh ground pepper.

Pop in a 400 F oven for 5-10 minutes. Remove and immediately top with a handful of arugula.

We don't usually have lunches like this here, more along the lines of a pb sandwich, or grab a tomato from the garden. Or if you're really lucky you'll find some leftovers from last night in the fridge.
