Bff = blue cheese/apple pizza ;)

Hey there my fellow bloggie bloggertons!  Hope everyone trucked through today alright even though it was a MONDAYYYYYY :/ grrr :/ But it’s OVA whoop whoop!  Anotha one down 🙂

Black Belt training today went very well – but I sure am glad to be home! 🙂

I was planning on a J.M. Shred sesh however no-go tonight — 2 days of intense exercise + not enough time = day o’ rest for this exercisin’ fanatic!  Girls gotta do what a girls gotta do right?!  So J.M. and I will meet tomorrow, luckily she is pretty cool w/ me pushin’ our sessions around 😉

Speaking of J.M. – check out Caitlin’s post regarding diet supps that our fave weight loss fanatic is now selling – I must say that I was pretty disappointed to read this however, life must go on :/

So after that I set out to get a head start on dinner! 

First up:  Tomato/Mozz/Olive Italian salad!  I love this combo of flavas (inspired by The Man’s momma 🙂 ) and like to prep the salad a few hours before eating to let the flavas blend.

Ingredients:

Oh we're ready for this one

Oh we're ready for this one

  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1/2 jar roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1/2 can sliced olives
  • 1/3 block mozzarella
  • Ken’s olive oil & vinegar dressing (or any Italian you like)

Just chop up all the veggies and throw them in a bowl – oh and don’t forget the tomato choppin’ trick that I posted a while back!

Ummm so you plan on dressin' me or what??

Before you throw on the dressing, add a bit of these guys for some additional flava

Oregano + S&P

Then stir it all up and put it back in the fridge-a-daire til you are ready for din – look, half of the meal is DONE!

Get to marinatin' salad!

After my salad fiesta I decided it was time to pour a glass of vino – Herding Cats Chard/Viogner blend – some things never change haha!  (check out the new stemless digs peeps)

I break too many wine glasses w/ stems :/ haha

 Me likey!  Then I sat down to catch up on some google reader – however Lucy Dog seemed to have gotten a head start for me 😉

Ruff?

 JK peeps, we haven’t mastered typing yet, we’re still trying to teach her how to vaccuum up all her fur! (gross eh?)

After some bloggalicious chill time, I got to some pizza makin’ with my homegirl Sandra Lee

Gettin' jiggy w it?

Canadian Bacon, Sweet Onion & Apple Pizza time – fanatic style (I always gotta modify somethin?! 😉 )

Let’s make the crust first – it needs to sit, covered for about 5 minutes before flattening into the pan

  • pizza crust mix (umm best stuff eva – 88 cents what what!)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup hot water
Saucy apples make the crust moist & sweet!

Stir this mix up a few times (20 or so) til’ incorporated then cover in a bowl and let rest for 5-10 minutes while you prep the toppings!
  • 1/8 cup light blue cheese dressing
  • 1/2 apple, sliced
  • about 4 slices of onion
  • 3 slices Canadian bacon
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tblsp grated Parm
  • fresh pepper
Pizza preppin' peeps!

Pizza preppin' peeps!

Ya’ll, don’t be scared of Canadian bacon (unless you’re veggie of course, you can omit this step 🙂 ) — 3 slices of this stuff only has 60 cals – really no biggie! 🙂
Slice ’em up!
Let's do this!

Let's do this!

Then just take the crust and spread it out in a pan (coat w/ cooking spray first) to get ready for topping time.  Crust sticking to your hands? No prob-just dust them in some trusty flour!

 

Top with the apple & onion slices & some fresh pepper
We're gettin there!

We're gettin there!

Then add the Canadian bacon, cheeses & some more fresh pepper! 
Bake me already!

Then pop it into a 450F oven for 12 minutes and ta-da……!!!
This is the stuff dreams are made of *sigh*

Time to serve it up! 
Can I get a heck to the yea?!

Can I get a heck to the yea?!

Dinner turned out perfecto – this go-to Sandra recipe always hits the spot!! 🙂  And thanks to The Man’s mom for the superfab tomato/mozz salad idea! 

And onto other things before I race to finish this so I can watch the GOSSIP GIRL SEASON PREMIERE (yes, I am 15 years old, check it 😉 )

HOW WAS THE PB&J LARABAR YOU ASK?!?!  It was definitely dee-lish – I wouldn’t put it above Coconut Cream Pie and Ginger Snapizzle in my book – but I would def get this flava again! 🙂

So all in all bloggies, today was a great Monday – one of the best in a while actually! I hope that the week continues like this… esp since I’m goin to visit my fave sista this weekend at VA Tech (yes Kim, I know you are my onlyyyy sisterrr… haha I love u!)

Have a great night peeps – see ya for another day tomorrow!! 🙂
