SuNdaY FuNNieS...PiZzA, & GreAt GiFt iDeA..;)

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 thats just REDONKULOUS IN MY BOOK!!! highway robbery if you ask 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 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 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?

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 it might be water weight..not sure..will keep you posted..;)
today at church my great Pal Peggy gifted me with this wonderful gift that I just had to share with you all as they would make great gifts to give or to sell in your shoppes etc..she took rice and stuffed little hearts and sewed them together...

you microwave them and you have instant little hand warmers for like when you are on your walks etc..what a totally neat idea..I love it.;) and I thought you all would too..
Oh and don't forget to sign up for Carmens giveaway and start scrapbooking can easily print these up and make great gifts to give to your loved ones or friends..they also have the program where you can make calendars and give those as gifts..and I don't know anyone that wouldn't like getting a personalized calendar as a gift..I won this on Pams site about 2 weeks ago..and I am making one of those calendars for my little sister with her kids on them..they will love it.and alot of the programs are super cheap..and there is a BOATLOAD of freebies she is giving you a coupon to use..and you can get a lot for that $10 what are you waiting for..go and sign up..from what I am told it is super easy to do..and you can see on her site how she did her precious kittys.. well that is it for me today..gotta go and get the taters started and the veggies roasting and get those cookies bagged up for the ride they don't make it home..;) have a wonderful rest of your day and I will be back most likely tomorrow to post my swap that Sheila gave won't want to miss this post..she spoiled me rotten;) xoxoxo :>)


  1. Ok, girl you got my taste buds moving! The pizza looks yummo! Have a partially written email to send off, cause I was wondering just how you've been doing? Kidney stones-gone??? From this post I can see you haven't lost your sense of humor and I had to copy the "coffee" pic! Yep, I'm addicted to coffee. . . you know they say it "helps you do stupid things faster!" and I tend to sometimes ;-)
