It's amazing what you can accomplish when your kid is sick (episode I)

TV is not something that Jack is afforded very often.  But when he's feeling sickly and pathetic, I can't really force him to jump around and play outside.  Let's just say that Jack has probably watched more movies/TV this weekend, than in the last year combined.

When you have a kiddo that isn't a snuggler and is acting like a little slug on your couch, what do you do to kill some time?  You bake.  And cook.  A lot.  My freezer runneth over.

One of the things I made this weekend was a huge batch of pita bread and some feta dip.  YUM!

Pita Bread
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.  Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack while the oven is warming up.

Make a batch of my homemade bread dough, and follow the directions through the 1st rise.  On a lightly floured surface, take small balls of the dough and roll them flat.

If you are rolling them out all at once, make sure you are flouring each pita very well!
Place 3-4 pitas on the hot pizza stone and bake on the bottom rack.  Bake for about 4 minutes on 1 side, and then about 2 minutes on the other side.
Man that is 1 dirty oven!  Let's um, just say it was the previous tenant's fault...
Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

Then, do yourself a favor and make this dip.

Turn this in to a meal with some cooked and shredded chicken and thinly sliced onions.  Gyros - yum!

Inspiration for the snack came from Soule Momma.


  1. Wow, your pita looks awesome, Sarah!!! I remember trying to make pita with Nana in her kitchen a long time ago...but I don't remember it looking as nice as yours!!

    1. Yep, I have a big ole' bag of them in my freezer right now. Freeze them on cookie sheets before putting in a bag so that they don't stick together. You can also put small squares of wax paper in-between each pita to keep them from turning in to one giant pita.

  3. Hi Sarah,
    Wondering if I can replace the pizza stone with some ceramic tile instead. Do you think it'll work ok? Thanks

    1. No idea, but I say it is worth a shot!
