The kitchen was humming most of the day. We started out with Banana Bites (bananas cut 1/4" thick on the diagonal, dipped in pancake batter, cooked on the griddle, and served with a bit of maple syrup).
Afternoon snack: crunchy, fresh-out-of-the-oven kale chips.
And, dinner was pizza perfect: homemade whole wheat pizza dough, sauce and pesto with an array of fresh toppings (bell peppers, pineapples, olives, green onions, fresh baby spinach, garlic, and turkey pepperoni). I intended to make a quilt pizza (like the one found on Weelicious.com) with different parts of the pizza having specific toppings, but Ella's plans were more of a confetti style, free-for-all with toppings everywhere--which worked, too;).

The world is on your plate, sweet girl!
