Healthy Homemade Pizzas – Yum!!!!

Standard

A group of us went to a pizza cooking demonstration on Saturday, which was a blast! We got to try various types of pizza, some good and some just okay. A good night out with friends, regardless! But it left me craving more pizza. Go figure… So, we decided Sunday was a great time to make our own pizzas again. Love doing this! We decided to make chicken Alfredo pizzas for something different. Actually, the dough was pretty filling, so I could only eat half my pizza.

RECIPE BELOW!

Q: What’s YOUR favorite pizza(s)?? If you make this one, let me know what you think!

pizza

Finished pizzas. I could hardly contain my excitement, I wanted to dig in so bad!!

Super easy and yummy! Here’s what we used but you can choose any toppings. We like to mix it up!

– Low carb dough (can’t remember the brand we bought online) or a tortilla

– Light Alfredo sauce

– Toppings: pepperoni, chopped ham, shredded pre-roasted chicken and tomatoes.

– Garlic parmesan cheese

– 2 cookie sheets

– Vegetable oil spray

To make: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out dough (we just use our hands) on greased cookie sheet. One pizza per cookie sheet. Add sauce and then toppings to your liking. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, depending on how crisp you like the bottoms. We like them pretty crispy. Viola! Super easy, healthy pizzas!

Wine Tasting – Weekend Adventure in Boise

Standard
zoo

Cute little guy at the zoo.

Drove to Boise, Idaho Thursday night for our long weekend of fun. Friday we went to the Boise zoo and took a short walk around the surrounding park. I say short walk because it was 100 degrees outside. Literally.

walk

View from the bridge, on our walk. Boise State University was at the other end of the bridge. Nice little park area.

train 2

Train ride back to the station.

That evening, we went on a Chuck wagon dinner train ride that went along Snake River. They were selling wine bottles for $12 each so, of course, we had to get a few 🙂

train 3

Us on the ride back. It was nice riding on the open car, getting some fresh air.

And because we didn’t indulge enough on the train, we made a late night run to Black Bear Diner. Love this place!! We had pancakes, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy. Our bellies were so full but it was worth it.

wine 4

At our second wine stop. Tried something unique called an Ice Wine, which was actually really tasty. I look super excited for the wine!

Saturday we did a wine tasting guided tour. This was a blast! It was just us and the couple who own the tour company, so we got the VIP treatment. We visited 5 wineries and tried over 30 different wines. Got a little tipsy but we weren’t driving so we didn’t care! LOL

wine 5

Us with our amazing tour guide, Kathy with Wine Seekers Tour. She was a sweet heart.

Afterwards, the Italian place we tried for dinner was mediocre at best so we headed to Black Bear Diner for dessert. By this time, the owner and some of the workers recognized us and came over to chat. LOL We had shakes, apple cobbler and got a choc cream pie to go then headed to the Shakespeare play “The Secret Garden”. The play was just okay, not my favorite. Good thing the chocolate pie tasted amazing after we got back to the hotel.

Love this place!!!!

And, because we’re kids in a candy store…. we went back to the diner for breakfast on Sunday before heading home. We stuffed ourselves with more pancakes, Bear Claw French toast and hot chocolate. We were so full by the time we left there, I was in a coma driving home.

After splurging in Mexico and again in Boise, I’m surprised I don’t have diabetes now! But, damn, those drinks and food were goooooood! 🙂

Fun in the Sun – Mexico All-Inclusive Vaca!

Standard

A little late, as we got back from Mexico almost 2 weeks ago but still wanted to share. Had an amazingly fun time!

mexico 3

Couple drinks while playing foosball. We’ve arrived!

We decided to try out two different all-inclusive resorts. The first as Occidental Grand Xcaret Resort; overall, it was average. We stayed here because it’s next to Xplor and Xcaret. The food at each restaurant was just average. Good thing we kicked off the afternoon with some drinks!

mexico 10Saturday was Xplor day, which is an adventure park. We started on the stalagmite rafting, followed by the off road jeep then the zip lines. All were so much fun, had a blast!

Rafting selfie – we’re so cute!

mexico 11

Off-roading in the jeep – super fun!

Beach looks better than it was.

Sunday was Xcaret, which is like an adventure park, zoo and beach combo. The “beach” wasn’t very impressive and there were way too many people. We didn’t stay in long. The zoo animals were cool to see, especially the bat cave. We had a bat block the entrance when we were trying to leave! LOL

Checked out of Occidental on Monday afternoon and headed to  The Royal. This was an adult only all-inclusive resort and was a little more “classy” than Occidental. When we booked the room, we were able to upgrade to a Master Suite for a good price. Our suite was 1300 sq. feet, complete with 2 bathrooms, Jacuzzi tub, dual head shower, kitchen with stocked bar, etc. It was amazing, I seriously loved this room!

Headed out for the bike tour. I had no idea the dangers that lie ahead!

knee

My scraped knee about 5 days after the crash.

We got wrangled into a bike tour that same afternoon, and after 4-5 banana mamma and pina colada’s, I ended up crashing (go figure…) and scraping my knee and cutting open my toe. Way to start out!

mexico 5

My standard for the trip – a pina colada and a banana mamma in each hand. 🙂

The next day we rented a jet ski for half an hour and did the fly board, which is like having jet packs on your feet and you get to hover over the water. Both were really fun. Fly board was hard to get the hang of but tons of fun. You can get 20-30 feet above the water which is exhilarating! The rest of the day was spent at the pool and the pool bar. More banana mamma and pina colada’s! 🙂

Snorkeling in the freezing waters of this Cenote, while bats flew overhead.

Wednesday we did a tour that consisted of snorkeling with the turtles, snorkeling in a cenote, lunch, zip lining and the Tulum ruins. The turtles was really fun, they’re huge! The cenote was cool but extremely cold. Good thing the tour company provided wet suits. Lunch was delicious, got to try an ancient Mayan dish. The zip lining was a little scary because the platform looked questionable and we had a stick for the break. It was fun though. The Tulum ruins were cool but the mosquitos really took away from the experience. Every few seconds, you were swatting them away. It was miserable, honestly. We actually left early.

mexico 1

Ruins at Tulum. Probably the only time we weren’t flanked with mosquitos!

mexico 7

Zip lining. The wooden sticks in our hands were the breaks. 🙂

Thursday was one of my favorite days. We spent the day on our cabana at the beach and at the pool. That night, we had dinner at the Chef’s Plate, which was included in our suite upgrade (it’s normally $80/person). It was a 5 course meal full of super delicious food, wine and special made drinks by the bartender. Afterwards, we did a couple’s massage in a gazebo on the beach. It was the most relaxing massage ever in my life.

Of course, we stuffed ourselves with food and alcohol every single day of this trip. I’m surprised we’re not each 500 lbs. after this vacation, though we did pack on a little weight 🙂 Flew home Friday afternoon, worked Mon-Thurs and then left for Boise. Super fun trips, sad that they’re over! Can’t wait to see what we plan for this fall! 🙂

Quirks Are Us Thursday | Volume #7

Standard

quirks

I like the word “quirk”; it’s quirky. A much better term than “weird” to describe the little idiosyncrasies that make me, me.

Here are a few more quirks that make me, me. Share some of yours below, I would love to hear them!

bread1. End Slice. Some people dislike the end piece of bread. Despise it, even. Me? My only complaint is that my sandwich gets screwed on thickness but, other than that, I’m totally fine with the end piece. I feel bad when it gets tossed. It didn’t do anything to anyone. So I eat it. And enjoy it.

water2. Cold Water. I like my water cold. Not warm, not luke-warm. Cold. Unless I’m dying of thirst, I will not drink anything but cold water.

bowl3. Bowls. Just like with my spoons, I prefer certain bowls for certain things. It makes my life easier. In my mind, at least. At work, there is a certain bowl I use to mix up my protein. I hate when others use it and I have to use a bigger bowl. At home, I use certain plastic bowls for everything. Shawn bought new ones that have ridges. I don’t like the ridges. I will shuffle through the bowls until I find the one I want to use. The pictured bowls are the actual style bowl we have. Love them!

Stay tuned for more quirks next week. I have a million of them

Flash Back – White Cheddar Popcorn

Standard

popcorn

It’s amazing how a song, food, smells, etc. can take you back to a place in time. And it takes you back so much that you can recall almost every detail, feeling and thought at that time. Sometimes it’s a happy memory, sometimes not.

I experienced that feeling this week. It happened while eating a white cheddar cheese rice cake. We picked up a pack while grocery shopping this last weekend and decided to give them a try. I put protein powder on mine (shocker!) and, as soon as I bit into the cake, was transported back to fishing during my younger years. Fishing and white cheddar, you say?

Well… when I was growing up, my dad always took me fishing. It was our bonding time. He would pack all the gear and we would get up at the butt crack of dawn, then head over to the gas station for worms, soda pop, beef jerky (him) and a bag of white cheddar popcorn (me). We would driver to whatever local fishing spot seemed promising that day, get the poles ready and drop in the lines. While waiting, we would snack on the jerky and popcorn. I remember my little fingers with dirt and worm guts (from baiting the hooks) reaching in for more popcorn (gross, I know, but I didn’t care back then). If the fish weren’t biting, we would take our poles and set up somewhere else. I was impatient even back then (surprise, surprise), so after awhile I would reel in my line and just hang out with my dad and talk. I’m sure he hated me scaring the fish away 🙂 but he never stopped me, just told me to whisper.

Before this week, it had been ages since I’ve had white cheddar anything. Passing the popcorn bags in the grocery store has always made me smile but biting into that rice cake knocked me back into my childhood.

For me, these are happy memories and ones that I will always cherish.
