Where oh where is my boyfriend... have you seen him? The hockey rink you say? But it's not hockey season.
Yes, that's true, it is Canada and hockey season never really ends, but Tuesday night? Didn't his team just play on Saturday... and watch hockey on TV every other night?
Ok, yes I did know what I was getting into when I started dating a Montreal Canadiens fan... but I need a picture taken. No luck you say eh. Humm.
Oh well, I guess we will all just have to take back seat to hockey once again, I'm just honoured to be equal in his mind to his love of hockey.
So today there are no Pita Chip pictures, but I can tell you that these are the perfect party snack. I served them at the latest Supper Club thinking that they would be a small addition to the massive platter I had made, but for some reason they got most of the attention.
I think the key is to use good sea salt. My ‘go to’ salt is Gris Sel du Mer de l'ile de Ré that has been harvested from the clay bottoms of the French Atlantic salt marshes. Grey Sea Salt retains calcium, potassium, magnesium, copper, iron, and iodine for good nutrition. Neither treated nor washed, it’s totally natural and has a great sea water taste. It is also pretty cheap so don't worry, but it makes even plain pasta taste incredible when cooked in a pot of grey salted water.
Anyways, they are super simple and you will never buy those processed fried tortilla chips again. I promise. So, have you seen my boyfriend yet?
Simple Pita Chips
4 tbsp. (aprox) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
5 tbsp. Italian Spices
5 tbsp. Grey sea salt
2 tbsp. garlic salt (optional)
Cut around the pita's edge and separate the two sides. Cut each side with scissors in to different shapes. Brush with olive oil on the inside of the pita shape. Sprinkle with Italian spices, garlic if using, and sea salt. Repeat for all of the pitas. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 6-8 minutes, or until the chips turn brown around the edges.
