Happy Sunday everyone! How’s the weekend treating you?
I’m trying to settle into my new promotion over here. I’ve got to say, it’s one thing to say you’re really going to make the changes, but it’s a whole different story to really do them. I need to hold myself accountable. I didn’t mean to start any confusion here. Not that much is really changing on the home/career front, except that I’m taking a step back to prioritize and make more time for the things in life that are important NOW and that will make me a better person, wife, mama, etc. It’s juts time to REALLY live in the moment, you know?
Here’s a few snapshots from my work weekend. Yeah, what the heck right? My new job has weekend hours and hours that randomly happen in the middle of the night. That’s not fun.
Um….. this never ends I guess.
Yep. All clean. They were probably sitting in the dryer for at least 2 days. Oops.
Since our new house rule is to not let the boys in our bed, when Judah gets up at 6:00 am and let’s me know it’s light outside, my only choice is to get up with him. Yesterday to pass the time we made a coffee cake with Trader Joe’s pancake mix.
I followed the directions on the box, but subbed in coconut oil for the regular oil and made my own buttermilk substitution with lemon juice and unsweetened almond milk.
It turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.
Yesterday after my classes were taught the boys and I had a little play time. Sometimes I forget to take the time to just “play” with the boys.
Darn precious moments.
We also made a trip to Smart and Final and bought about 9 kabocha squashes. They must have just gotten a new shipment or something because those squash were looking so great. I just kept piling them in the cart. I actually am a little embarrassed to show you how many I got, so I won’t.
I will tell you I’m baking an egg in one right now.
(Sorry, recycled picture. I’m lazy this morning.)
Okay, so since I have limited time right now and I’ve been promising to tell Tracey how I make homemade pizza, I figure I better get that recipe to you. You know, Sunday football and pizza. That goes together, yes?
My favorite crust is the wheat crust from Trader Joe’s. They have it in the refrigerated section in a bag.
(Sorry, another old picture. This freezes well though and I usually have at least one in the freezer.)
I follow the directions on the bag. I let the crust sit out for 20 minutes while I cut up the veggies and get everything else all together.
Classico makes my favorite pizza sauce. They have it at most grocery stores right by the spaghetti sauce.
My favorite toppings:
red onion, green peppers, mushrooms, olives, fresh tomatoes, jalapeños, chicken breast, fresh basil
I always add garlic, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and dried oregano after all the veggies are piled on. I also use nutritional yeast and lots of crushed red pepper to make up for the fact that I don’t have cheese on mine.
The boys just get plain cheese and STUFT Daddy usually gets all the veggies plus some mozzarella cheese.
The Trader Joe’s dough is easy to form and I usually just put it on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with nonstick spray. I load everything on and cook it in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 450 (just like the directions on the dough).
It comes out darn fabulous every single time.
My go to toppings.
My complete pizza. Mmmm….
STUFT Daddy’s pizza.
I make quick pizzas for the boys a lot too on Trader Joe’s wheat flat breads.
I have to tell you I love pizza. LOVE it. I could really eat it everyday, so I experiment a lot. You can pretty much make pizzas out of anything.
Portabella mushroom pizzas.
Um, yeah, anything.
Oh, that reminds me, the cauliflower pizza crust is another option although a little more labor intensive.
well great, now I want pizza.
Do we dare brave Trader Joe’s on a Sunday? Baby carts at Trader Joe’s on a Sunday doesn’t sound like a very good idea.
you know what goes great with pizza?
Cute husbands and beer.
You know what does not go well with pizza?
A grumpy Kitty that desperately need a bath.
Yeah, that’s on my to do list today too. Awesome.
Okay, gotta run. We’ve got a busy day on the job.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Any pizza lovers out there?
