For Friday, March 19th, 2010
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MARCH 19TH, 2010
This is one Friday I’m really glad to see. 2 days of training under my belt and I feel like I did at least 10 days hard work for sure! I am glad I’m not the trainee and am the trainer at this point for sure. Well after today I have 2 days to rest before I have to do more and I’m thinking that is a great idea.
The good Lord blessed us with another beautiful day. We got up to 65 yesterday and today I think we’ll have more of the same.
I do know how I’d like to spend my time, but that is not always what I’m able to do.
Very often the plans I have disappear into thin air. I’ve found that living one day at a time is the better way to go.
Today: Pray to know how God wants you to spend your time
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Those hot dogs grilled outside are looking mighty good about now, but I no longer have a grill and can only enjoy them when I get to the campground. So you know today is Pizza Day at my house anyway and I do happen to have a frozen one in the freezer just waiting for me.
Maybe you’d like to try out this recipe that I found on line…
This pizza not only costs less than a take-out or delivery pizza, but you can control the ingredients, and load it up with as many toppings as you like
1 onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
6 oz. can tomato paste
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup water
Thin Pizza Crust or 2 Boboli® pizza crusts
Chopped green peppers
Canned mushrooms, drained
3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook onion in the olive oil until tender. Add tomato sauce, paste, mustard, seasonings and water. Cook, stirring frequently, over low heat until thickened and blended, about 10 minutes. Spread over the pizza crust and sprinkle toppings over. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-25 minutes until heated through, crust is crisp, and cheese is melted and beginning to brown. 8-10 servings
Teach us to be loving not only in great and exceptional moments,
but above all in the ordinary events of daily life.
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
This weekend looks like it will be a busy one for me. Tomorrow is the ‘Party Hill Gang’ get together that DD and her hubby had planned in February but that got cancelled. I’ve got a nice dessert to make and am in charge of bringing everyone’s favorite chips too! In case you didn’t know…Party Hill is what they call the hill where our campers are located. So all those that camp around us have been invited to get together. I love all our neighbors there. Of course most of them are family and the ones that aren’t related are friends of family so it’s a great group of people.
DS#1 and his wife have also said they are taking me to lunch before the party as part of my birthday gift. I feel pretty special as I’ve been able to celebrate this birthday for several weeks now.
I did get a call from DS#6 the other evening and they are doing well. It sounds like our little ‘Lucky’ guy has his days and nights mixed up a bit but that will soon straighten itself out. It always does.
Having a new babe sure does change our life styles, but in a wonderful way!
COUNTING THE DAYS
The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month
Henry Van Dyke
1 DAY UNTIL SPRING !
28 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
15 WORK DAYS UNTIL MA RETIRES
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
