Looking for a new recipe that is easy and really, really good! This recipe is something interesting and new for the grill that became a family favorite instantly. This recipe makes several delicious ultra-thin crust pizzas and only takes 5 minutes to cook (10 minutes to prepare). Compliments of Steph Gaiser.

2-8 Flour Tortillas (White or Wheat for healthier alernative) - brushed with olive oil on both sides. Put on cookie sheet, and take the tortillas out to the grill along with your toppings (see below).

Lay the torillas on a hot grill (400 - 500 degrees) with a little space between each - place on the highest cooking surface to prevent burning.

The Omaha Real Estate has seen a flurry of activity especially as the time draws to a close to receive the First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit of $8000.  If you are still on the fence about buying your first home, do yourself a great service by looking at homes before you finalize your decision to buy or not to buy.  You will find that there are many homes to choose from, some of the lowest interest rates in years and a tax credit to top it off.  If you are still on the fence about a home, now is the time to hop off of the fence!   There is still a little time left for those procrastinators out there, but you better move now, or else you may lose the opportunity of lifetime to buy your first home now.  Call me so that we can help you get started today at…

What can you do with $8,000?

Have been on the fence about buying your first home? What's holding you back?  Now is the time to start the home search in order to ensure you close by Nov 30, 2009 and get your $8,000!  There have been talks about the government extending this first time home-buyers program, but are willing to risk losing $8,000?  If you don't close by then and they don't extend this benefit past Nov 30, 2009 - that just might be what will happen!  Washington is focusing on the health care reform, and not the housing credit.  Contact me today to start finding your dream home and your $8,000!
