Tasty Tuesday

Guess what mom made yesterday.   PIZZA!    She hasn't made pizza in forever!
She found fresh whole wheat dough in the bakery section of the grocery store.  She spread pesto that she bought in a jar, all over the dough and then arranged plum tomato slices over the pesto.   Then she sliced fresh mozzarella and put that on top of the tomatoes.   Then she sprinkled her Mrs Dash's Italian seasoning over the mozz followed by parmesan cheese and then black pepper.  Then she topped it all with olive oil.   Next time she will reduce the amount of olive oil.   It's ready for the oven.
 Bake at 475 degrees F on the bottom shelf of your oven for approx 10-12 minutes until the crust is brown and the cheese is bubbly.    Let it cool slightly before cutting and serving.
 Trust me, mom.   They are not fooled that you ate only 2 pieces~
 To say that it's yummy is an understatement.   This pizza is awesome and so easy to make!
 More please!
We have lots left over.   Who's in?!

Love ya lots♥

Happy St. Patrick's Day

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
  ~Traditional Irish Blessing~

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Nature Friday

We are joining Arty this week for Nature Friday~

These photos were taken on Tuesday, when we still had snow.   It's so colorless at this time of year and kind of depressing.    Mom told me to look depressed.  Is it working?!☺
 So mom came up with an idea to take pictures of nature that had landed on top of the snow.  
Are these the same oak leaves that you have, Phenny and Nelly?
 We found a pinecone~
 And this is the Sycamore tree ball~
 And we found these nasty Copper Beech pods that love to get lodged in between my feet pads~
 And on Wednesday, we noticed that we still had lots of Bittersweet berries on our vines.    I guess the birdies don't like them?
 This is the last little bit of snow in my back yard.   I gotta enjoy it while it lasts!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥

Sunny Saturday

We have a beautiful day here today!  Tomorrow, we're supposed to get a dusting of snow and then rain on top of it so we have to enjoy today to the fullest!
 Could the sky be any bluer!
 I couldn't possibly be any happier!
 Hey, Millie.   Mom asked me to do a donut and this was the closest that I came to it.    Not too impressive, huh.
 We played lots of ball too and now my ball is on top of the radiator drying out.  It's pretty soggy.
 I need a break, mom.  It's 45 degrees F and it's hot!
 Today is the bestest day ever!

Happy Saturday!

Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

We are joining Arty this week for Nature Friday~

We are finding less and less interesting stuffs to post about but we continue to look.  Sooner or later, the flowers will appear again, right?!
 Miss Laura never brought her garden ornie inside for the winter.   At least it's colorful in the drab of winter.
 The lighthouse at the edge of this small pond is lit.   It has such a pretty setting.
 These duckies are mad with me because I jumped at the fence and woke them up and sent them flying into the water for safety.
 We found a hornet's nest way up high in the tree~
Happy Friday, everybuddy☺

Love ya lots♥

Wonderful Wednesday

The snowGods have been so good to me.  They sent me ten more inches of snow to play in on Monday!
 This snow is wetter and heavier than the last snow we had.
 But it's still SuperDuper Fun!
 Mom remembered to bring my ball out~
 Will you pick it up please.  It's cold on my teeth.

 I wish the snow could stay 365 days a year!
 What do you mean it's time to head back inside~
 Mom bought me a package of Whimzees because you guys did such great reviews and she didn't want me to miss out.   Thanks, guys!   Whimzees are good, although I did down mine in five minutes, which is exactly how mom thought it would go.
Love ya lots♥

Tasty Tuesday

Mom has been wanting to make a Kalamata Olive bread for awhile.  She bought one at the grocery store awhile back and loved it so she's been searching for a recipe to make one herself.  She found quick bread recipes that use milk and she found yeast bread recipes that use the kalamata olive juice brine and that one sounded more flavorful to her so that's the one that she chose.


  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup brine from olives
  • 1 cup warm water (enough to make 1 1/2 cups when combined with brine)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 2/3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons basil (dried leaf)
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup olives (finely chopped kalamata, about 2 dozen pitted olives)

She didn't have dried basil so she used Mrs Dash's salt-free Italian Medley.   She adds it to soups and pretty much everything.  

You had to be here to smell it baking away in the bread machine.   It was driving us both NUTS with the Italian aroma from the spice mix!
 Is there anything more yummy than warm bread with butter?  Mom doesn't think so.
 It smells delicious and tastes yummy, mom!
We both give it a TEN and we will be making this recipe again!

Happy Fat Tuesday and Happy Mardi Gras!
Love ya lots♥

It's My Birthday

Today is my 7th Birthday and I am helping mom prepare my birthday "cake"~
 We decided on meatloaf with yogurt frosting and carrot candles.  Don't worry - the meatloaf doesn't have any onions in it.
 I'm blowing out the candles and making a wish!    I bet you all know what I'm wishing for☺
 I need another piece, mom.  That one went down way too fast~
 You are all invited to my pawty!  There is plenty of meatloaf for everyone!
Love ya lots♥
