Get Crack-a-Lackin!

Wahoo for Hump Day! As soon as the forever roomie gets here, I’ll be getting started on my pizza endeavor. Is it odd that I’m a bit nervous? I’m always a bit nervous when I’m cooking for other people – What if they don’t like it? What if I burn it? What if  we have to resort to crappy takeout?

Sheesh. You’d think I was a perfectionist or something.

Luckily I got to enjoy the fruits of my last baking attempt for lunch today – I made a rosemary sunflower and pumpkin seed cracker from Angela’s Recipe for Any Way You Like ‘Em Crackers.

Even though the dough tried to eat my rolling pin…

I’d say I rocked it!

Don’t the ingredients just looks so hearty and wholesome?

They looked twice as awesome once they were baked!

These crackers came out quite tasty, although I feel as though should have added more salt to the top.

Nothing a little dip can’t fix – I smothered them in a couple generous dollops of my favorite Guiltless Gourmet spicy black bean dip.

Would you laugh if I told you that I also ate half a head of iceberg lettuce with the crackers and dip?

I literally hacked the head in half and plopped it into a bowl. Judge away, my friends, judge away.

Three…two…one…PIZZA TIME! See ya tomorrow with the results and the third post in Project Enthusiasm!
