While at Home Depot the other day I found a great deal on the cabinets we wanted (in 6 months). So now it is full steam ahead to get sheet rock up before the cabinets come in. We have to order by July 10, so as soon as we are home from Wyoming we will be ordering. We are focusing on the Bedroom to Laundry/Bathroom redo and then we'll remodel the whole kitchen...with a 7 foot island!!!

During the remodel I have a feeling there will be a lot of grilling and frozen pizza....sorry! No new recipes probably this summer...but once I have a new kitchen...then we can talk!!

We are heading to my parents' land in Wyoming for a week and a half tomorrow. Ian and I will stay the whole time and James will head out and back both weekends to drop us off and get us.

Ian has an ear infection, so that should be fun on a vacation. We took him to acute care tonight because he has been tugging on his ears for a week and today started running a fever. Sure enough...Momma's right! Ear infection. Just a single this time so hopefully because it's just the ear infection instead of everything he had before he'll heal just fine.

Little guy is on the verge of walking...he walks next to everything and can stand without holding onto anything (if he doesn't notice.)

Off to pack!! Have a great day!!

Pizza and Giggles

I finally figured out how to make a homemade pizza without soggyish crust! It was so good!
Here's how you do it...

First we start with our dough....
1 cup warm water
1 pkg yeast
1T. sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
5 cups flour

Place in large covered container and refrigerate overnight (I always skip this step.).

Put cornmeal on your baking stone or whatever you are using to bake your pizza on.

Divide the dough in half and roll to the size of your pan.

Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes.

Take the crust out and sauce it.

Put whatever toppings you want.
I use pepperoni, jalapeno and browned beef.

Cheese it and bake it.
I think it took about another 20ish minutes.
Eat it and enjoy it!

Roll the rest of your dough on a little flour.
**Next is supposed to be a pic of the brown sugar and cinnamon on the dough,
don't know where it went.**

Roll it up and cut them into about 2-3 inch sections.

Put your cinnies in a greased pan and let them rise.

Bake them at 350* for 12-15 minutes.
MMM...James ate the whole pan...without frosting!

This dough recipe is good for crescent rolls and pizza rolls as well.

James and Ian playing while I make supper.
Ian giggled while they slapped the chair.

"If Daddy can do it so can I!"

"Isn't this so fun?!?!"

Proud Papa...enjoying happy kiddo!!
