I know I’ve been a little MIA lately. I’ve got some new irons in the fire that I’ll be able to talk about hopefully by the end of the week. Some fun changes for me.
This last weekend was fun and busy. I went out for drinks with a friend and her other friends for her birthday last Friday, then stayed up seriously late listening to a book on cd while surfing the web. My fireman was working and the kids were gone. I really know how to party, don’t I?
We also went out for the youngest boy’s birthday, but I will post about that later.
Our bedroom looks different as well. The fireman and I rearranged our entire bedroom. We moved the bedroom to a different wall and shifted everything. It looks really amazing. The whole feel of the room is different now. We need to find a narrow side table for my side of the bed. I have it about a foot from the wall, to walk between, but need a small table to set my alarm, phone and a bottle of lotion. I’m thinking maybe a phone table or even a narrow, short cube-like bookcase of some sort. We’ll see.
For Father’s Day, the fireman asked that I make my homemade pizzas. But instead of making 3 large pizza crusts, he wanted to have smaller, different topping pizzas. So, I made the 3 large crusts recipe, but rolled them into 5 smaller crusts.
We also picked up some Moose Tracks ice cream and cookie dough ice cream. I picked out a Bunny Tracks ice cream for myself to try. He also had been wanting a cherry pie, but since I was making pizza, we picked up a frozen Marie Callendar’s cherry pie. Those are the best frozen pie’s. Ever.
Did I mention that we were planning on starting a new phase of our diet to rid ourselves of an additional 5-10 pounds, just to tighten up some. We have been a little lax (while I was at my sister’s) and the fireman just wants to push himself a little harder. So, we figured, we’d might as well go with a bang.
These were the first three that came out of the oven. We had a meat only pizza, piled high with pepperoni, ground hamburger and crispy fried ham. The second was a supreme, with hamburger, ham, bell peppers and onions. The third had was a supreme variation with only hamburger, pepperoni and bell pepper.
The last two were crispy fried ham, pepperoni and pineapple. It’s my homage to the Hungry Howie’s Howie Maui pizza that I love from Florida. *the one I went to with my sister and went crazy over*. And finally, Dad’s Pizza, the fireman calls it that cause he loads it with anchovies *ewe*, hamburger, ham, bell peppers, onions, olives and anything else he can think of.
Yes, those are little notes on the counter. Why, do you ask? Cause I’m a type A personality and wrote the toppings down on little notes by the pizza so that everyone would know which pizza was which.
I’m strange. I know.
Leftover pizza like this is really great to have on hand. Especially if you have teenagers in the house. Seriously especially if those teenagers happen to be of the male variety.
It was a really fun Father’s Day. I bought my hubby this.
The Cocky belt buckle from the tv show Bones. We always watch it together. Now he can be like Booth….
He liked it.
Then we settled down to bowls full of each kind of ice cream; we had to try them all, with toppings, of course. Then, the pie. And I think we ate half the pie…
It was gooood.
