Anyone get the reference in the post title? Anyone? Bueller? Here you go.
I have been known to exaggerate from time to time, using superlatives when they might not be totally warranted; from “I had the worst day” to “I have a million things to do” to “I must have the biggest butt on the East Coast.” None of them are true, but I’m a drama queen.
But I truly believe that this statement is no hyperbole:
The following is a representation of the most amazing homemade pizza ever created.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise — after all, I got the dough recipe from Jenna at Eat, Live, Run, who called this The Best Pizza Dough.
I made the dough from Jenna’s instructions, although I used all whole wheat pastry flour instead of a mix. I slathered the rolled out dough with organic sauce, cheese and a heaping pile of veggies (sauteed peppers and onions and raw purple onions for both; additional portobello mushrooms for me):
Crispy on the edges (because I rolled them up a bit before cooking), soft warm melty gooey heavenly oh my gosh delicious veggies on top. I caught myself crossing my eyes a few times while devouring the entire personal pizza I’d made!
It kept me stuffed all night, which is rare — I didn’t even think about indulging my sweet tooth. This morning, I woke up ready to rock. Usually, I take long bike rides on Saturday, but I’m a little sore from Thursday’s run, and I want to do a long run tomorrow, so I decided to take a day of rest.
But rest from a workout did not mean I didn’t stay busy! I like to take long weekends to clean out the house as much as possible. I get rid of clothes, shoes and other stuff I haven’t used in a while. Today, it meant tearing apart the kitchen and putting it back together:
Faegan helped me by recycling some of the boxes I was getting rid of:
He mistook the corner for our recycling station. I couldn’t be mad, because he helped Lucas pick a winner for his Stella Artois giveaway this morning. Check out the cutest video ever!
Time to watch Project Runway on the DVR get back to cleaning. Lucas brought me home a present — Bombay Sapphire and tonic water, a favorite combo of mine — so I need to hustle and get my work done so I can relax soon!
P.S. What do you all think of the new blog style? It’s in progress — I found a great theme and am in the process of tweaking it. I’m no coder but I’m learning, slowly but surely!
