Is it still Tuesday? It seems like I’ve lived 2 days in one. Tuesday’s mornings I have a BNI meeting for our business, Compass Coatings. We do decorative concrete resurfacing for pool decks, driveways, patios, walkways, anything made of concrete. I will post some pictures of some of our projects soon. This business is our primary source of income. Jordan does the installation and I do the office work, money, and marketing. The meeting starts at 7:30 sharp and they serve breakfast:
Bread, eggs, and grapes.
I was still really hungry when I got home around 10:30, so I had a little snack:
Boars Head chicken lunch meat slice wrapped up with a piece of pepperjack cheese. This did the trick and kept me satisfied until lunch, which was leftovers:
This was even better the next day. I heated up this chicken stuffed red pepper in the microwave with some marinara sauce and then sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top. It seemed like a lot of food, but I was hungry again in the afternoon. I snacked on this yummy popcorn:
This makes a surprisingly large amount of popcorn for only 100 calories. It’s great for a day like today when I have the munchies. I love the sweet and salty combo of the kettle corn. Yum!
Today was a big day for me. I attempted homemade pizza dough for the first time ever. My inspiration came from an amazing woman who is a living example of how God wants a woman to be. Her name is Sheryl Leggett and I’ve known her since I was a tiny 13-year-old girl. I have so many good memories. She used to make these amazing pizzas with hot dogs. So I call this Mrs. Leggett’s Hot Diggity Dog Pizza:
I made this one with 98% fat-free turkey hot dogs, reduced fat cheese, red peppers, onions, banana peppers, and basil. I made, for the first time ever, homemade whole wheat pizza crust.
I got the recipe from eatliverun.com, here’s the link:
It turned out really, really good, and I don’t bake much. It’s a fool-proof recipe. I really enjoyed kneading the dough. There is something meditative about it. And there is a certain satisfaction in creating food from just flour,yeast, and water.
I also made one with tomato, mozzarella, and basil:
This was my plate:
I went back for another piece of Mrs. Leggett’s pie. It definitely was not as good as hers, but it was tasty and brought back good memories.
And then for dessert, I couldn’t resist this:
I figured out what this tastes like: the most delicious snickers in the world! Layers of chocolate, caramel, and peanutty nougat. Dessert is a necessity!
