Birthday Swap Fun


I love blog swaps and I found a great one to participate in.

Shawn over at Seriously Shawn is hosting a birthday swap. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and receive a little prize in the mail from someone else. Click on her button to check it out!


I Gotta Get Out Of This Place

We are leaving town again today and I can't wait! My hubby has worked really long hours this week so I have hardly seen him. Luckily he comes home for supper, but the girls have a million things to tell him so I don't get a lot of conversation in. It is always wonderful to get him out of town and away from work. I know, he still has his phone, but at least I can look at him while he is talking on it.

I will be away from the computer until Monday, (which is really hard for me), but I have a great new book to review for my Girlfriends Get Real blog so I am going to sit by the lake and read.

I wanted to leave you with an easy, easy weekend meal (that is probably not good for you, but it is yummy). I apologize in advance for my food photography skills, I am still learning and experimenting.

Grilled Pizza is a favorite in our house, on the grill or even better on the campfire. And, it is super easy to make.

First, take out a loaf or two of frozen bread dough and let it rise to bread baking size. (1 load makes two adult pizzas and three little girl pizzas)

Shape your dough into pizza forms. (Mine are never pretty)

Brush Olive Oil on both sides of the dough. (Wow this picture looks like I used a lot of Olive Oil)

Grill on one side for about 3-5 minutes. We really watch them, you want to take them off of the grill when they start getting brown and crispy. (warning, they can get black fast and then you will have little ones that say I don't want to eat the black part)

Remove from the grill and top the grilled side with pizza sauce & alfredo sauce (from the jar), and all of your other fixings. This time we just used pepperoni and cheese. (I was trying to clean out my fridge without going to the store)

Grill for another 3 to 5 minutes until the bottom is crispy and brown.
