Foodie Friday're probably confused.
You might be looking for a foldable or a great anchor chart.
You're wondering how you can tie cream cheese and Pesto into your math lesson.
You're starting to think that maybe you clicked on the wrong link.
But wait!

A teacher has to eat right?  I mean, in between all the blogging planning and grading you might be asked to bring a yummy appetizer to a New Year's Eve party.  If you do I promise this will be a hit.  It is so easy and so yummy.

Here's all you'll need:

Spread the cream cheese in the bottom of your dish (go's okay, the resolutions don't start till Sunday).  I used a quiche dish but you can use a square 8x8 pan or something close to that size or smaller.  Spread 1/4 cup of pesto on top of the cream cheese.

Dice a plum tomato and sprinkle on top.

Sprinkle 1 cup of Italian shredded cheese on top.  The original recipe calls for 1/4 c of cheese but can you really ever have too much cheese?  Especially if it's warm and bubbly. Just trust me. Go with a cup.

Now bake it for 15 minutes at 350 and you will have this:

And everyone will love you.  I promise.  You can serve it with Triscuits but I *heart* white bread.  The high carb, low fiber kind...and we have one more day before resolutions start.  We already settled that.  I can't think of a better way to spend my last few calories.  Followed by something rich and chocolaty of course.
