I just got the cutest shoes! I like metallic shoes because they can go with so many things. But I have a problem with the shoes on the market. There are either flat shoes, or really HIGH shoes....no inbetweens besides foam flip flops...which feel clunky. So, I don't like flats, cuz I feel stumpy in them, and I don't like HIGH HIGH heels cuz I like moving around a lot and they're just not convenient on a daily basis unless you're sitting down a lot, which I'm not. So, I've had these gold shoes for 2 years, and I loved them because they had a heel that wasn't TOO high, I could wear them on a daily basis cuz they were still comfy....but about after 6 months....they started looking gross....but I couldn't find anything to replace them with....so they just got uglier and uglier. I even tried spray painting them to make them look new...that lasted a week. So...finally a breaking point came. I had made a cheesecake for a friend, and while I was delivering it, my worn out/crooked/completely uneven heel catches a little edge and I fall onto the ground, and the cheesecake smashes tasty side first. I was so mad/sad! So....that was the last straw and I got new shoes. I got metallic flats for daytime (I'll get used to them....they were super cheap cuz it's the end of summer) and then I got my silver, oh-la-la shoes. To die for! But I'll only wear them after work, cuz I don't want the looking like my old ones any time soon.
Since we've been married, Chad and I have gone through some weird eating stages. First, neither of us could cook very well, but we knew how to make what we liked. I cooked healthy food with LITTLE flavor, and Chad...typical guy food....burgers, eggs, and plenty of unhealthy stuff. Naturally, I started doing the cooking and this meant that Chad got to start eating my stir fry and rice. At the time I thought it was good, cuz I was used to it, but looking back....it was gross! I did not know how to add flavor...it was basically a lot of cabbage, green pepper, and onion cut, cooked in a frying pan with PAM, and spinkled with random spices or sauces. Ofcourse he was nice and grateful, and always thanked me for cooking. Then I got really friendly with the cookbook and starting trying new things. It's really hard finding good recipes that are healthy, that don't taste like what some people would call, diet food. I thought I was doing great, and I was so proud of myself, but again, looking back, the food still wasn't that good and I was always trying to talk Chad out of getting fast food.
So...fast forward, and now i have found a wonderful compromise. Healthy pizza. I know you are probably rolling your eyes about how obvious this must have been, but I'm excited cuz it's cheap, tasty, easy, and healthy.....yah-hee! So....the dough I got for .60, I roll it out, put some tomato sauce on and add my ingredients. By making our own pizza, we can fore-go tons of cheese and fat, we can add tons of veggies, and chicken breast. I like to make it somewhat Mediterranean and put spinach, tomato, red pepper, feta, chicken, and parmesan (if artichoke hearts were cheap I would add those too). This is also a good recipe for the future cuz the wee-ones can help sprinkle the ingredients on the pizza. Anyway....it's kinda silly, but I had to share my discovery.
