My 10-year-old, Jack, is what I like to call a “rule follower,” so when his teacher named him the class monitor last week, I had no doubt whatsoever that he’d take his snitch duty seriously. And per the yoozh, I was right. How do I know? Because his teacher sent home his most recent daily, handwritten class-monitor report for us to peruse for our own amusement. And I quote, from the pencil of my first-born: “This list includes all the people who made intentional noises with their mouth. I did not include laughter, talking to lunch monitors or medical reasons* (*coughing). Jayden - made lots of humming. Josh - straight up talking. Steve - intentionally held up his pinky finger (he knows this is Chinese for the “f-word”)” Even better than learning crude Chinese hand gestures from your 4th grader: these super easy pizza zucchini bites, served with leftovers tonight. How I did ‘em👇🏼 #savoringtheflavoring
1. I sliced a large zucchini into about 1/2”-thick rounds, then laid out on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
2. I seasoned with sea salt + pepper, then spooned a little @raoshomemade pizza sauce on top of each round, then topped all of them with a little shredded mozzarella, then topped half the rounds with a slice of turkey pepperoni (one of my boys prefers just cheese).
3. Baked at 425 for about 10 min, until the cheese was golden + bubbly + the zucchini was cooked through, then shaved a little parm on top.👌🏼🤤
