I have been on a major scary movie kick lately. Growing up I could not even hear to the music to a scary movie without freaking out. I’m talking completely and totally freaking out. I would run out of the room and upstairs to my bedroom to blast music. I’m pretty sure this annoyed the crap out of my stepmom who thoroughly enjoyed watching scary movies.

It wasn’t until I was older and finally saw Poltergeist that I finally got over my fear of scary movies. I’m not really sure why that one did the trick since it’s super creepy and seems as if I could possibly happen. Ok maybe not really happen but you know what I mean.

So at night while I’m sitting at my desk and writing my posts (like now) I’m being kept company by a random scary (and usually pretty pathetic) movie. Last night it was You’re Next and today it’s Cabin the Woods…yeah, they both suck. What happened to the good old days of scary movies? Shoot I would even happily watch It if they brought it to Netflix.

I take that back. I freaking hate clowns.

Oh and I will never watching Children of the Corn again. Why you ask? I grew up in Ohio where I was surrounded by corn fields. It only took me one time of watching that movie to realize how very creepy fields of swaying corn can actually be.

So you know what else I do while watching scary movies? Get hungry. I cannot edit pictures and talk about food without needing a snack. Ok, I’m going to call myself out. That was a horrible segue. But seriously how does one go from talking about scary movies (which I feel like I need to share with all of you) to talking about this awesome looking flatbread?

My favorite part about this flatbread is the awesome fall flavor that is packed into this baby. Hello it’s got bacon, brussels sprouts and butternut squash! It’s three B’s of deliciousness.

[…] time I get a pizza urge, I’m going to go for whole wheat flatbread instead and top it with the “three B’s of deliciousness.” That’s what Brandy at Nutmeg Nanny calls bacon, Brussels sprouts and butternut […]

This is gorgeous. I'm loving the combination of salty bacon, sweet squash, and earthy brussels. Perfection.

This looks amazing! Do you have a recipe for the whole wheat dough? I looked and didn't see one.

Hi Malia! Sorry, no I don't. I honestly usually just pick up a fresh dough ball from my store (it's super delicious, cheap and organic!) but if you google I'm sure you can find a quality whole wheat dough recipe. I need to get working on a recipe of my own! Hope you enjoy the flatbread!

I love all of these Bs! And flatbread. I guess if you drop the flat, it's another B word. Also I hate scary movies. Hate them. I won't even go to haunted houses because I do not want to be scared out of my mind (even if it is people just jumping at you).

FALSE. The three b's are bears, beets, "battlestar galactica".
