Mozza Pizza on the Grill

Mozza Pizza on the Grill

Mozza with Basil
has become our favorite thing to do

This time I thought I'd try something different

Using Mama Mary's thin pizza crust
(they carry this at most of the local grocery stores here in Dallas)

I just brushed the crust with olive oil
sprinkled it with some garlic butter flavored sea salt (lightly)

Mozzarella Company Cheeses
Then,  I used both of these cheeses
(that I picked up a couple Saturday's ago at the White Rock Local Market)

It's been a while
since I tasted
Mozzarella Company's mozzarella cheese
It melts in your mouth like BUTTER

Fresh Basil
I used fresh basil from my herb garden

I have to say that this pizza was amazing!

Swayze

Swayze @ 6 Months Old
Here is the latest addition to my family
Swayze (aka Batman Swayze-notice his black mask, Swayzers, Swayzeeeeeeee, Swayz)
(Yes, that's right.. after Patrick Swayze from the Road House movie)

He is my son's dog
but I get to love on him

He turned 6 months old on Saturday
He is a rhodesian ridgeback, australian cattle dog
black mountain dog and boxer mix

He weighs about 45lbs
He will probably get up to about 60ish lbs

He seems to get taller every day though

DIY - Canvas Art

My neice just turned 9 years old  
For her birthday,
she came over on Saturday
to spend the night.

After a shopping trip to Hobby Lobby,
we tried our first arts and crafts project.

We bought 2 different size canvas
They each had 2 in the pack
We each had an 8x10
&
 an 11x14 canvas

Of course, all inspiration came from Pinterest
Where else ?

 We just kind of "winged" it
We had the following:
acrylic paints
paint brushes
canvas
mod podge (sparkly)

My neice embraced the project with full force
She knew what she wanted to say
&
She knew exactly the colors she wanted to use
 
Me on the other hand..
Not so much...
I used copper & brown to match my room
I first started with a cute saying
but couldn't really commit
So, I just put random letters on after I painted the copper
Then I painted "expresso" over them
Then I wasn't thinking, and I peeled off the letters...
So... I had to improvise and paint gold over the DREAM letters
looks like it was meant to be that way, right???


This is both of our attempts of doing hearts.

I say for our first attempt at being artist,
we did pretty good...
since they are just going to hang
in our rooms for us to see
