Pizza pizza...

It's been a while since I have made homemade pizza...I don't know why because it is SO much better than anything we can buy! Pizza Crust: (for 2 crusts)
1 1/8 c warm water
1 Tbls dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp sugar
3 Tbls oil
4 c flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and sugar. Mix in flour last to make a medium soft dough. Knead about five minutes. Allow to rise 15 minutes or more in greased bowl. Grease pans and press dough over pans. Put sauce, toppings and cheese over crust and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350.

Can of tomatoe paste
(water down to desired consistancy)
garlic salt
a little sugar
taste test until good...

Pizza topping ideas!!!
Ham and Pineapple...(a fav)
Ground beef, ham and pepperoni
Pepperoni and black olives
Whatever you like!!!

the grill, the fixin's and china

First of all: A grill update...

It works...

Also...the fixin's...

And the china...after looking and looking for 'the' dishes we were going to get...I finally found some that we like. I had seen these at Pier1 before and liked them however, today, they were on sale. So, for a great price and also pretty nice looking...we now have dishes!

It's been a long, long time...

Ok so, I think this stretch of no-bloggage has lasted longer than any other! It's not my fault though...blogging requires internet...which I have not had. So, it is the internet's fault. At any rate, I am going to try to do better...since we are supposed to have internet starting Thursday. When that happens I will post a bunch of new pictures because lots of things have been going on.
1. Honeymoon...we have some great pictures from the beach...and our favorite restaurant there, which is really why we like it there so much.
2. We moved...pictures of the new house are soon to come. The owner came today and finally finished painting the exterior of the house..wahoo!!
3. We had family in town...the 4th was a fun one this year...and although we didn't get pictures, we watched the best fireworks show ever from our rooftop.
4. We had our wedding reception...LOTS of pictures will be provided for this update!
5. We have some favorite chillin' spots here in the great northwest that we would love to brag about via blog...and now that we have a digi camera...we will be posting mob pictures of the beautiful state we live in!
6. Youth group craziness. We are teaching the 10th and 11th grade sunday school...very fun. And have had the pleasure of getting to be part of many youth events over the last couple months...again, pictures to follow.
SOoooooo, if anyone still reads this very neglected blog...it is about to get a lot more interesting then it has been for the last few months!!! Promise!!
