Breakfast?

Does this not look fantastic. This actually is the ultimate healthy breakfast. It is one of my favorite. Avocado’s are quite cheap at the moment so it makes for an economical meal. Good for the heart and cholesterol.

Healthy Breakfast. Avocado and poached eggs

Make Your Own Pizza With Your Own Pizza Maker

I bought a pizza maker about 6 months ago and it was the best and most well used purchase I have made in a long time. It makes a quick and nutritional meal in no time. Depending on what you put on your pizza it makes a cheap meal.
I often keep a pack of 2 pizza bases in the freezer for the unexpected. We probably have a pizza once a week and I love to use fresh basil and other herbs and fill it with prawns or meat, onions,mushrooms, sometimes just vegetarian.
I occasionally make my own pizza base out of whole-meal flour, or I may do a gluten free base. Depends who is home to eat. You can also make a base like the recipe below.
This is the pizza maker I bought from Amazon, it is called a National Presto 03430 Presto Pizzazz Pizza Maker. It cost about $45 and sometimes there is free shipping.
