I love pizza but I don’t eat pork. It can be difficult to find a store-bought one I like that I find eatable. I’m just not a big fan of just a cheese pizza. Soooo…
I kinda cheated on this one. I bought a 3 cheese frozen pizza. I thawed it out a bit before adding my favorite toppings.
Sliced Green Olives
Then I just followed the directions on the pizza box. Minus 3-5 min.
I sometimes add tomatoes or extra cheese but I didn’t feel like having the tomatoes and the kids had eaten all my shredded cheese (those dingle-hoppers). So that’s my quick fix for a pizza craving.
This is one of my favorite salads and its so easy to make. This is what I put into it:
Fresh Lime Juice
Add Favorite Seasonings
I chopped up the tomatoes, green onions, and cucumber. Then I added all the ingredients to a large bowl. this is my first time using the juice of a lime. I liked it so much better than the apple cider vinegar I usually use. This is also the first time I added cottage cheese. I had bought a brand I ended up not liking so I have been trying to add it to things. I usually use Greek Seasoning, my favorite, but was out so I just added salt and pepper. We usually eat this like a dip. My kids like the dipping Fritos or white corn chips and I prefer wheat crackers.
What is up with all the itchiness!?! For weeks now my legs have been itchy, but today it is almost unbearable and now my feet itch. I have tried different body washes and lotions and nothing seems to help. I read itchiness can be a common occurrence in pregnancy but I can’t recall it affecting my extremities before. Just my torso area. * Scratch scratch *
For lunch I made myself a smoothie. It was so easy and took less than 3 min. to make. I didn’t measure anything just kinda threw it all together in my blender and blended it on high. Here’s what I used:
Some people like to add sugar for a sweeter taste but I don’t like the added sugar and it was plenty sweet for me :-)
I wish the pic could show you how purple it really was
So! I do have something exciting to post. I am 10 weeks pregnant! I have to admit I’m trying not to get to excited yet. I lost twins this last July when I was 111/2 weeks. So I’m waiting to see if I have a sticky baby.
I have 4 beautiful intelligent children. Who really aren’t children anymore. I have 3 boys and a girl. Their ages are 22, 21(almost), 19 and 171/2. So as you can see It’ll be like starting over. Last year’s twins and this one were not planned. My birth control method seems to be failing me after all these years.
I have had a head cold these last few days and it was pretty bad today. So I have been a little worried about it’s affect on the baby. I have been to the doctor once so far. My iron was really low so I have been trying to get that up. My energy level has improved since and I don’t fall asleep right away after work now. Well this cold has me down a little. Until next time…. :-)
Hi! I am very excited to get this up and going. I look forward to sharing my 40’s and interacting with all of you. This won’t be a focus on being forty but that’s where I’m at and this is my journey. Plus I just really liked the title. At first this will start out as more of a daily updated journal, but I hope to add videos, pictures, forums, categorized topics of interest and all that good stuff that makes for a good web site. Please join me and share your journey of life.
It is with mixed feelings that I face my forties.Some have come to dread the “F” word - but I say - bring it on - bring them all on!
