My mama always used to make fruit pizzas and veggie pizzas in the summer. Trust me when I say I always preferred them to the alternative cold dish — tuna salad. Yuck! Haha.
I had refreshment duty for our Marriage + class, and I was in the mood to bring something other than a sugary dessert.
Start with:1 Quick & Easy Whole Wheat Crust. I let it sit for quite a while because I hit up the gym and showered before coming back to it. I tend to be impatient with bread dough so this was for the best. My yeast grew so much that I had enough for this whole pan plus some random bread sticks to go with dinner!
“Sauce”: 1 packaged reduced fat cream cheese + a few tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt (to desired consistency) + 1 packet Simply Organic Ranch Mix. The sauce was amazing!! We were licking the sides of the bowl like it was frosting.
Toppings: I used broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and green onions. I probably would’ve added more, but I didn’t want to scare anyone off.
This was the first time ever I was hoping for leftovers. I’m forever trying to pawn cake off on people, but this was a different story. It made a great weekday lunch today!
I had a slice along with some of the leftover salad jar fixings. For some reason I couldn’t stomach the salad today! I didn’t like the black beans so cold, and I felt grossed out by the tomatoes because I saw some of them moldy. So I made Kevin finish it!! Boyd got a few of the tomatoes. He can use the antioxidants.
Here’s a little peek into our every day lives. This is exactly what happens when we tell Boyd to “kennel up!” so we can go back to work after lunch.
He immediately rolls over on to his back to be petted and eventually has to be dragged into the bathroom. The bathroom is spacious. It’s not like he’s in a crate. And all he wants to do is laze around anyways. What a big baby!
We found a posh park the other day when we were biking around. It’s seriously plush. Get this. I’ve probably run past it 50x!! But I’ve never seen it because I don’t run with glasses/contacts. Hilarious!! But it’s beautiful and super quiet. It even has this world trail thing with different workout stations!! We plan to try it out someday soon.
We ran 4 miles in 32:51. A decent 8:12 pace!!! I was pleased with it. Guess what?? Kevin and I exchanged some initial planning emails for a possible fall marathon! We decided that once we are in our house, we will register! And that will be that!! We figure if we have a house, we’ll be reasonably settled and likely to still be in the area!! Hah! So we’re pre-pre-training!! Can’t wait to have an exact date!
Running together outdoors is a little trickier than on side-by-side treadmills so this will be an adventure!! Especially since we will be treadmill-less come mid-July!! At least it’s summer!!! I wouldn’t be doing so well if it was January!
Kevin grilled up some burgers tonight which we enjoyed with double sauces. I ate almost all of my sweet potato fries before the burgers were done. I was just starving!!!
I’m totally sold on the Frank’s BBQ sauce! It’s amazing. I prefer to put it on the side and dip it so I don’t make myself sweat!! And both have them have extremely minimal sugar/calories. Hooray!
Totally random question, but Do you like to fly Southwest? Kevin is watching a video on it for his master’s class. It was actually very distracting while I was trying to blog. Lol. They were talking about how they tested different seating methods. I hate the no assigned seating. It makes me anxious. I think I would probably do better if I was flying alone, but when I’m with Kevin I’m always so disappointed if I don’t get to sit with him!! Lol. That sounds even more ridiculous when I type it.
Ever had a cold veggie pizza? I was surprised by how many people had never seen one. I thought it was super common. Especially to make them out of those pop tube croissant crusts.
