Hello, Snow!

The snow is certainly falling here in Wisconsin.  I live right on the border of heavy snow and just plan slush.  It looks like we got about 6″ of snow so far – and, it’s still snowing.  It’s wet and heavy.  I’m sure glad I still live in an apartment – I don’t have to do any shoveling.  🙂  The temperatures are supposed to drop later today and the winds are supposed to pick up.  Not a pretty situation.  I think I’ll stay in for most of the day!

Last night, I stayed in from class in order to avoid the roads.  It was nice to be home when the husband got home.  We had dinner at a reasonable time.  Last night it was our chicken caprese pizza.  It was delicious as always.  🙂

Chicken Caprese Salad Pizza

1 refrigerated pizza dough

10-15 grape tomatoes, quartered or halved

3/4 – 1 cup of prepared basil pesto

4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, diced

4 oz shredded Italian cheese blend

1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or diced (I used the leftover engagement chicken)

Balsamic Vinegar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  (Or the temperature your pizza crust package indicates)  Spread the pizza dough out on a greased pan (I use a standard sized jelly roll pan).  Spread an even layer of the pesto on the pizza crust.  Sprinkle the remaining ingredients, except for the balsamic vinegar, on the crust/pesta.   As a final step, sprinkle balsamic vinegar over the pizza.  (Remember a little goes a long way!)

Bake in the oven according to your pizza crust’s instruction.  (Approximately 15-18 minutes)


We had it with a side of garlic bread.

Dessert last night was a No-Sugar added Klondike bar.  It’s a fun treat every once-in-awhile.  🙂

As for today, I’m enjoying some banana bread oats and watching the snow fall from the inside.  Good thing I picked up season two of “Dexter” on DVD from the library yesterday.  There might be some online shopping in my future too…  🙂

Stay warm!


I Love A Good Slap Bet!

Monday, monday!  How was everyone’s weekend?

Today was supposed to be productive.  It really wasn’t.  🙂  I did get somethings done – but not nearly enough.  Blech.

Breakfast was pretty filling – Eggs a la Grandpa, some center-cut bacon, orange juice and a piece of toast.

It was a nice treat to have a nice filling breakfast.  After breakfast I had to make a stop at the grocery store for some necessities for the week.   I really enjoy going grocery shopping.  And, i was very good about not getting anything too “dangerous” for the apartment.  Nothing too snacky – only good for you things.  It was a successful trip.

Lunch was another Lean Cuisine.  Mmmmmm.  Not the best, but it worked.

After unsuccessfully searching for an online political science class that I need, it was off to club practice.  Where I almost just walked out right then and there.  Lame.  I’m trying to convince myself that I need to stick around for the kids – which I do.  They need another coach on deck to make sure they’re safe and so someone can work with them.  But, I’m about done with the club as a whole.  At least my choice is a good one.  🙂

Dinner was some BBQ chicken pizza with a spinach salad and applesauce.

We put the pizza together with refrigerated pizza dough, two chicken breasts (pre-cooked), BBQ sauce, some mozzarella cheese and sharp cheddar cheese.  Put it all together and cook according to the pizza crust’s directions.  It was simple, fast and yummy.  A perfect combination.

And, to finish it off, some Caramel Praline Crunch yogurt blends.  Yummy!

I scream for ice cream.

Well, the hubby and I have some TV to catch up on – including some Monday night TV.  A slap will be occurring on HIMYM.  Love it!  🙂

And, here’s Jackson to say “goodnight”.  🙂

Like a Stonewall.... kind of. 🙂
