Hidy Ho Journal & Friends,
Just for some fun, I thought I'd take a break from oh-so-serious and do a Friday Favorite! Caution, food porn ahead!
Sean at Daily Diary of a Winning Loser (HERE) often posts those scrumptious pics of his homemade pizzas. Well, we here in the Pacific Northwest know how to turn out a yummy homemade pie, too!
So in the interest of a little friendly rivalry, here are MY homemade mini-pizzas. They are quick and easy to make, and like meatloaf, there are a million different ways to make them.
I cook them in my little FlavorWave Oven, like so:
I make them on Whole Wheat, high fiber, low carb tortilla wraps from La Tortilla Factory.
Sometimes I make one just for me, sometimes I make it "deep dish" style, and split it with MyGuy.
Here is one made with pesto instead of pizza sauce, then sauteed broccoli and mushrooms, artichoke hearts (from a jar), a little sausage, olives and grated parmesan. Mmmm.
And here was a yummy version with pizza sauce, then some crumbled cooked hamburger (you could sub with cooked cubed chicken), olives, garlic, mozzarella cheese, and after cooking we added homegrown tomato slices and a drizzle of ranch dressing.
There is one gal that has invented a gazillion different mini-pizzas: Shelly at The World According to Eggface, HERE.
Today's Peek at the Past (Considering how I've been feeling lately, and my recent struggles, I need to heed my own advice from a year ago.)
From Day 81, October 29, 2009:
I woke up later feeling warmer and a little better, and as I lay there, I thought about all the chirpy motivational stuff I write. Oh goodie...I get to put it into practice. I get to look for the "Blessin' or the Lesson". Well, after I got over grumping about it, and remembered all my bloggin' friends who are struggling through illnesses and still Doing It, I decided that today would be no different than any other day, foodwise. I won't be exercising, or pushing my new schedule, but otherwise, it is just another day along the Journey.

From Dr Phil's book: "It's not just the specific weight you want to attain, but also the feelings that you associate with it... what you really want is to feel better about yourself."

Enjoy the Journey,
