Week 31 Sunday (8/17/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Potato-Leek Pizza
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl
                           Pages  110 - 112     Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 265 if you cut 18 slices or 316 calories if you cut 15 slices.  (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

The flash made this a whiter color than it was.
The other two pictures look more realistic.

I can't believe I ate a green pizza, but it was great.

Here's the half I kept because I gave the other half to the Serpicos.

         This was a very interesting pizza. I really liked it and shared lunch with Nicole and her girls. Nicole really summed it up when she said that it reminded her of “a fully loaded baked potato.” It really is that good.
         I also shared some pizza with the Mansours. Melissa, Courtney, Taylor and her friend enjoyed it, too. Melissa described it as a specialty pizza. This was so true because this is not your standard cheese and sausage pizza. It was a wonderful change of pace for me, as well as my friends.

Trivial Triffles

         Did you know that you can write on glass with a permanent marker? Thanks to Sara Gilroy, my teammate at school, I have been able to label all of Ree’s recipes in my freezer. This has been so wonderful to be able to identify the dish as well as the calories in each serving.
         Gone are the days where I am guessing which dish is it until after I eat it. Knowing the calories upfront really helps me plan my day.

Memory Musings

         One of my favorite silly memories is when I was in Florida. I was hanging out with Mary and Suzanne Stopka and one of us came up with the idea to go to Gayfers and visit Laura. We found her near the jewelry section, so we hid behind the jewelry racks. She thought we were thieves or some sort of criminals. Apparently we were silly and immature, but we had a great laugh at ourselves. No matter what we did, we always had a great time.
