Hey there everyone!!! hope you are having a wonderful weekend...gosh the days just go to fast anymore these days;)we had a quiet weekend of sorts..went for our 2 mile walks both days..and Hubby fixed my car and saved us $322.00 the dealership wanted 502.00 to fix the most simple part on our car..the part was 300.00 and the labor was 200.00 now I ask you..hubby went and purchased it for 180.00 and it took him literally 5 minutes to fix it..now thats just REDONKULOUS IN MY BOOK!!! highway robbery if you ask me..so glad hubby was a mechanic in his previous career...cause we had the money..but just didn't want to spend that kind of money that could be going towards another bill or putting food on the table..so for that we are most thankful..tonight we are having some friends from Hubbys work..(he works at a marina and alot of liveaboards live there) and he really likes these folks..I have only met them more on a brief basis..but I like them..and she loves my homemade preserves..so they are coming for prime rib, garlic parmesan smashed potatoes and roasted veggies..and I am sending them home with chai spice cookies..they love them..heck we do too..after all there is only 3 sticks of butter in them..whats not to love?..lol..
I love this precious face..
and ours would if they could.;)
I love this face too..
and I always love these retro ones..they always make me bust a gut..:)
and isn't this one just pppurreesssious.;)
just wanted to show you the dinner we had on wednesday night..this is probably the best pizza I have ever made..and healthy too..who knew cooking healthy could taste sooo good..I have loved cooking and baking in a "healthier" sense..its actually a game for me to see just how healthy I can make and see if it still tastes good..and they do..this is before it was baked..I used a refrigerated pizza dough..this happened to be garlic dough..and I used roasted peppers from a jar..I sauted chicken, mushrooms, and onions and then put a light coat of marinara sauce down..
the said dough.;)
topped with reduced fat cheese..and I didn't use the whole bag like I would have in the past..
getting nice and bubbly.;)
finished..I added some fresh cilantro to the top...oh it was good.;)still working through a plateau and thought I was off of it yesterday..but today says the same old thing..so it might be water weight..not sure..will keep you posted..;)
