LOVE me some homemade pizza – last night, Wes was craving it and suggested homemade pizza earlier in the day.

Have a great recipe for whole wheat pizza dough from an Italian cookbook I have.  Used the tons of tomatoes from our garden with fresh basil and balsamic (and a little canned diced tomatoes) to make homemade tomato sauce.

Rolled out the dough super thin – actually made 2 pizzas – and then sautéed some peppers and put peppers, sausage, turkey bacon, and mozzarella cheese on each.  Baked at 425 until crust was brown and finished with fresh grated parmesan.  YUM!


Low Country Boil!

Melly’s 40th party was this past weekend in Charlotte.  SO MUCH FUN!

No real ‘theme’ to the party, however, Steve & Melly knew they wanted to make Low Country Boil.  That was an open invitation to Jenny & Melis to use shrimp, crabs, and other assorted beach items as the theme!

Cake was a pot with Shrimp!

Don’t forget the drinks and ADORABLE cups!  Love the drink dispenser from Costco!  You can use that thing again!
