Molly Monday: August Barkbox

I love when Molly’s Barkbox has a theme! For her August Barkbox the theme is very nautical and she loves it. The toys in this month’s box are a real hit and she also likes both of the treats, which is always nice!

Her favorite of the two toys is the Waboba Fetch ball. It has almost a beanbag feel to it and it’s the perfect size for her.

The Jax and Bones Nautical Wheel Rope Toy is probably one of the cutest toys I’ve ever seen! Molly loves chasing after it, but I can tell she hasn’t figured out the best way to carry it around yet.

The treats in this box are Feel Good Treat Co Seafood Chowder and Grandma Bowser’s Cheddar Biscuits. Molly gobbled them both up. The biscuits are a little big for her, so we cut them in half and she ate them right up!

I also am loving that Barkbox includes the price and a reorder code on the information card now. We’ve reordered a couple things from Barkboxes past, but had to do a little digging as to where to find them. This makes it a lot easier, so thank you Barkbox!


Prosciutto and Artichoke Heart Pizza

Prosciutto Artichoke Heart Pizza Recipe

I can’t take credit for this recipe. I went to lunch at Mountain State Brewing Company here in Morgantown with my friend Nancy, who has amazing taste in food, and she really likes their Moriarty Yardsale Flatbread. I was a little hesitant because I’m weird about trying new things, but I am so glad I went with her suggestion! This pizza has the perfect amount of everything. I can’t even describe it. You’ll just have to make it and find out!

Prosciutto and Artichoke Heart Pizza Recipe:

1 pizza crust
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic
8 oz. fresh mozzarella
3 slices prosciutto
6 oz. artichoke hearts – drained, rinsed, dried and chopped
4 Basil leaves
Black pepper

Pre-heat your oven to 450-degrees.

While your oven is pre-heating, pour your olive oil into a small saucepan. Use a large knife to smash your garlic cloves, just to break them open and drop them into your olive oil.

Garlic Olive Oil

Heat the olive oil on low for about 10 minutes and then remove from heat. While you’re heating your olive oil, drain, rinse and dry your artichoke hearts. Rough chop them into bite size pieces.

Artichoke Hearts

Remove the crushed garlic from the oil (you won’t need it) and spread the oil all over the crust.

Tear pieces of your fresh mozzarella and spread evenly around your pizza.

Next, tear pieces of your prosciutto and spread them evenly.

Finally, do the same with your chopped artichoke hearts.

Mozzarella Prosciutto Pizza

Pop your pizza in the oven and turn the temperature down to 425-degrees. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is all brown and bubbly.

Chop your basil leaves and add to the top along with some freshly ground black pepper.
