What’s for Dinner Wednesday – Homemade Pizza!

One of the dinners that my daughter and I love to cook together is pizza! I get the roll yourself dough from Trader Joe’s – they have three types: plain, whole wheat and garlic & herb….we typically rotate between all three (the garlic & herb is mild enough for the three year old too).

Last night we had some friends over to have a “pizza off”! Each of us brought our own ingredients and I had picked up two types dough, whole wheat and garlic & herb.

Whole Crust
Red Pizza Sauce (Trader Joe brand)
Quesillo (Mexican cheese that is typically used in quesadillas)
Black Olives
Mushrooms
Tomatoes
Goat Cheese

Garlic & Herb Crust
Fig Spread (Trader Joes)
Roasted Red Peppers
Chicken Sausage (sliced)
Quesillo (Mexican cheese that is typically used in quesadillas) – they added their cheese to the top

We were all so hungry by the time it was done that I didn’t get a picture of either of them but let me tell you they both were delicious!

What are your favorite pizza toppings?

3.9.11: What’s for dinner Wednesday – My Ode to Montreal Steak Seasoning!


I love to dash you here and there

You go just about anywhere

Chicken, turkey and some steak

You make my meats marinate

How I wish I could just add ya

To my favorite ensalada

I will have to settle then

For a dash every now and then

3.8.11: Traveling Tuesday – Babymoon

I don’t remember when I first heard about a Babymoon but I instantly fell in love with the idea and when I was pregnant with my first daughter explained to my husband that it was an absolute MUST.

A little background, from Wikipedia: A Babymoon is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently-born baby. More recently the term has come to be used to describe a vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby. Babymoons usually take place at a resort that offers appropriate services like prenatal massage.

I did some research and found a quaint little B&B in the wine country that offered prenatal massages and various treatments – plus a golf course close by that would help entice the husband. We went toward the end of my second trimester (I was about 6 ½ months pregnant) – not feeling sick anymore and not feeling like a hippo yet. We had a fantastic time! It was just for the weekend and we drove up on Friday and had a wonderful dinner. On Saturday I enjoyed treatments while he played a round of golf – best of both worlds for us.  We took a nap and had another amazing dinner. I thought it would be so good for us to just spend some time together, of course all we talked about was the baby that was coming but at least we were together.

There is a website dedicated to helping others plan Babymoons – I thought it might be helpful if you want to plan one also….click here! I don’t know anything about this website but they looked to be the most comprehensive, I didn’t use them when planning ours.

We had our second daughter last year and we just couldn’t find the time to get away with our eldest daughter, work, etc.  I wish we would have taken the time to do it – even a day Babymoon would have been nice. Our five year anniversary is next year; maybe I will start working on a second honeymoon…

Mama Monday – Girls Night out (at home)!

When was the last time you had a date night with your girlfriends? Can you remember? Now with two kiddos myself, I find that it can be challenging to find the time to get together with my girls but when I do I feel like a better everything!

Here is the solution that my girlfriends and I came up with. I hope you try it – let me know what you like to do with your ladies night out (even if it does end up on the couch)!

What my girlfriends and I do to get some time together and not spend a fortune? We rotate houses! (Real rocket science here – sorry if you were looking for an insanely incredible idea, you have to admit that it does make it easy.) Sometimes we bring the kids to each other’s houses or other nights we leave them with their daddies.  You can also all meet at one house and split the cost of a babysitter. There is a great article (click here) that gives you some ideas about hosting girls night at your house.

Whatever you do, just make sure you make girl time a priority – you deserve it!
