My first realization to the end of summer was the giant chunk of change that was gone from my pocket with just a mere click of the mouse, and now with the first week of classes, along with work, I’ve come to the final realization that it is definitely over *sigh* Even though it’s only midweek I feel my free time is going to be very tight this semester and the weekends are just going to fly by even worse than before. I want to let you guys all know that I may be lacking in the blogging and commenting department, but I will try as much as I can. I myself like to personally respond back to each commenter on their own blog because I really enjoy getting your comments and I like to see and respond to your blogs too :)
Thanks for all your comments I really appreciate them! I’m going to try to get another ride in this weekend, but it will probably be with the slow riders, so I’ll have to some how get in contact with him again. Whatever my thesis may be I think I’m going to ask these guys if they want to come in the ex phys lab. I wonder if they’ve tried coconut water? hmmm . . .
Happy Hump Day! Even though it’s almost pretty well over. I have to say that on Sunday and Monday I went to bed at 9 and wow, what a difference a few, well about 3 extra hours makes! I wish I could go to bed at 9 every night!
For times sake, I will jump right in to one of my favorites. . .
Chris and I always usually make home-made pizza and calzones on a Friday because we can make the worst mess in the kitchen, have lots of red wine and just be happy that it’s the weekend :) This time we made them Tuesday night. Well, Chris made the dough and then we made the rest together that night. Tuesday night was also Chris’ last day before he started his new job!!!!!!!!! We are so excited and relieved that he got this one, it’s just going to be pretty tough juggling everything and dinner with both of us working full-time and doing grad school. We’ll see how it goes!
There is nothing like fresh, home-made dough! It is just so yummy and pretty darn fun to make too. I’ve made this ww dough recipe before and you can find it here, or you can just simply look at the pictures :)
Pizza stones give an awesome texture. Oh my gosh the oven was so freakin’ hot and we were dying. Chris also set off the fire alarm using the grill pan for stuffing ingredients, oops! We had to bring down the box fan to get some air circulating since it was just as hot if not hotter outside. I can’t wait till it cools down here!
Happy buns in the oven!
This one recipe makes a whole lotta dough (wish it was the green kind), so be prepared to make a lot for leftovers!
Ok, best pizza topping invention!!!! Have you ever tried fresh figs on your pizza? Sounds kinda weird, but it works so well. I like to use a balsamic reduction as the ‘sauce’, top it with some spinach, fresh figs, crispy prosciutto and fontina cheese, yum!
Why not have a calzone or pizza making party for your next get-together? I’ve done this a couple times with some friends and we’ve had an absolute blast (of course an addition of wine makes it fun too). Just have all the ingredients and dough ready to go and get your guests working in the kitchen! Nice!
What’s the worst mess you’ve made in the kitchen?
