Our Homemade Pizza

We have now decided, after making it a few times (like 5 in the last month and a half), that homemade pizza is best!

So good that I didn’t get pics of when they were finished….except when my daughter decided to make a stromboli this last time.

My hubby likes pepperoni (sausage give him heartburn) and the kids and I like sausage (pepperoni give me heartburn). We use breakfast sausage, jimmy dean type, and the sauce we use is Prego (I grew up using and still use).

I brown all meats, except for the pepperoni, and for me I sautΓ© an onion in alittle butter, to top mine.

We use pilsbury pizza dough, we have even used Walmart’s brand too. I pop the container and put the dough on a silicone mat, rolling it out to desired thickness. I like a thicker crust while the hubby likes a very thin and crispy crust. We brush a thin layer of olive oil and prebake it….my son 10 minutes, my daughter and me 12-13 minutes and my husband until almost burnt (a joke in our house….he likes it very crispy!)

Then after prebaking, we let it cool about 10 minutes, that way the sauce doesn’t make the crust soggy. After that we assemble as we wish, I make everyone do their own so Im not to blame about too much or not enough toppings. And then bake atleast 10 more minutes, depending on the person.

This is my hubby’s after final bake, my opinion its burnt.

My daughter decided last time to make stomboli, no prebaking. She said it was great!

Daughters Afghan

My daughters afghan is finally finished! It seemed to take forever to tuck the ends and snip them. If found a few places where there were squares not fully connected, so I had to remedy that and one somehow began to unravel, so that was fixed as well.

My daughter proudly put it on her πŸ› bed, we discussed that I put the squares the same way and of course she found the one I didn’t fix after affixing it wrong. She told me that was the uniqueness about it. That was sweet but it bugs me. Lol

This is my daughters way of modeling with the blanket. πŸ˜‚ πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ teens *shrugs*

Baby Blue

Since I finished my nephews snoodie and I ran out of yarn to continue my daughters afghan, so I went looking for small projects to do. I saw that I had some soft blue yarn and started to make a granny square and kept going until I ran out. I then used a darker blue to border it.

Another WIP in Progress

I’ve been working on this afghan for my daughter. It was supposed to be to help her anxiety with our move. Our move was this past September and I kept talking with her and a few things I said to her and her new school helped her get over her anxiety, this time.

But Im still working on the afghan and now her kitty 🐱 decided that my lap was the nap spot to be right now. πŸ˜‰

Project on hold for now.

My nephews snoodie is on hold… I played yarn πŸ“ chicken. I was able to finish the body but I didn’t have enough to close the hood or make ears. I had to order more red yarn. I will get it in time to finish before next weekend. We are going back to Houston to visit again and I will be able to give it to him then.

Wolf Snoodie

After seeing the Panda 🐼 snoodie I made for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend for a gift for Christmas, she asked for one. She asked for a wolf 🐺 in the colors of the mascot for her high school. She loves it.

I will be making a pink 🐻 bear for my niece soon, since she needs a new hat and she loves pink. Will post a pic when done…

Got lots of projects to come….already planning for next Christmas for my brother-in-laws and hubby…..and maybe even my kids. 😜. Gonna be hard to keep under wraps from my own family! Luckily I work from home!
