Thanks for all the nice words about my September goals. I’m happy with how things are going so far, but I still have a lot that I want to do! More good news today, I have more interest in some of my Craigslist items, and once again the buyer is driving 2 hours to pick up the goods! A worthy buyer indeed! She’s picking up my chairs and my colored shelves.
Jason and I have a plan to get the rest of the garage clear within the next week (Goal #6!). It will be such a relief when we can both park in our garage 🙂
And speaking of good news, I got something super special in the mail today: Barney
Ok not that Barney. This Barney:
BARNEY BUTTER!!! Crunchy almond butter and creamy almond butter. I won them from a giveaway at Gingerbread Bagels. Thank you Lindsey!
And I have even more good news. I ran to the store after work to pick up some dinner supplies when I happened to walk down the baking aisle and saw Libby’s Pumpkin. I have been checking for a while now, and they are always out! There were only a few cans left (I considered buying all of them but remembered that I need to keep to my budget this month). I bought 2 cans and had to take a pic of one can with the sparkly pumpkins and an ear of corn:
Since Wednesday is Top Chef night (and no I won’t discuss who won last night in case you haven’t watched it yet), I decided to make something a little extra special for dinner:
Pizza. Yep, I saw Matt’s pizza today and knew I had to make one for us tonight. I followed his Spelt Pizza Dough recipe (subbed agave for honey since I didn’t have any) and it tasted unbelievable. We topped the pizza with fire roasted tomatoes, turkey slices, green pepper, black olives and soy cheese.
I was so happy with how it turned out! Look at all that lovely melted soy cheese!
Going back to yesterday’s post, I was happy to read that most of you do not mind office treats. For a time I thought others were trying to sabotage my diet, when in reality they were just trying to be nice. I think there are people who try to sabotage our progress, but we need to be strong in our goals and beliefs and do what WE want to do, not what someone else wants us to do. I know, easier said than done sometimes!
1. What are your favorite pizza toppings? Do you prefer to make your own or do you like to go out? Tell me about the time you had the BEST PIZZA you ever ate? My favorite pizza toppings are sausage, peppers and black olives. I also like “supreme” pizzas with everything imaginable. I like to make my own but every once in a while it is fun to go out and get pizza. The best pizza I ever had was on my 21st birthday. I was living in Duluth, MN going to college and my parents and sisters came up to visit me on my birthday. We went to Old Chicago and had Taco Pizza — it was phenomenal. We have eaten at other Old Chicagos and their Taco Pizza could never compare to that first time!
2. Did you watch Barney when you were a child? What were your favorite shows? I was a little too old for Barney by the time he showed up, I remember watching Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow, Disney movies, Looney Tunes and Little House on the Prairie. Also, has anyone else seen Donald in Mathmagic Land? My sisters and I used to watch it when we were younger, but I have yet to meet anyone else who has seen it.
3. Have you heard about the High Fructose Corn Syrup name change? I read about it on Laury’s blog, check it out if you haven’t heard about it!
Enjoy your day everyone!
