The crust really held up on the second day. It really supported the pizza and never became soupy or excessively moist. The pizza dough is easy and quick to make, and there’s nothing as good as homemade pizza. Ree used it with a breakfast pizza, but I would also love to make my own pizzas on a Friday night. What could be better than a thin crust pizza with pepperoni, black olives with extra cheese? NOTHING!! I never made my own pizzas because it was just plain easier to pick up the phone and order that small Pockets Pizza. Okay – now that I am constantly cooking, I know I can do it better. The dough can be made ahead of time so there will be no more excuses in this home – come over and let’s enjoy a slice!
|Look carefully....you can see the yummy butter ready to ooze into the crust.
Did you know that there are four known pairs of ruby slippers made for Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz still around today? A few months ago the television was talking about The Wizard of Oz. They said, and Real Simple Magazine agrees, that the slippers can be seen in the Smithsonian, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and a private collector has the third. The fourth pair was stolen from Judy Garland’s museum. Whoever took them should be worried because the law will eventually catch up with you, my pretty!
Sledding wasn’t the only way we spent our winter months. We also loved to ice skate in the Burger’s backyard. The area behind their house in the extra field flooded to make a natural ice skating area. All of the kids were bold and daring ice skaters, and we loved the game of ice tag. I can’t say any of us could have ever been Olympic Skaters or professional hockey players, but we all put in a lot of effort and had a blast. I am sure I had absolutely no technique, but the goal was to stay upright and avoid the person who was “it.” I look back on that time with a smile on my face. It wasn’t as if we planned anything – it was all spontaneous fun. What more can someone ask of a childhood memory?
