|Shortly after we started dating in 1999|
It wasn't until about 8 months later, when I was kind of seeing a guy from Jerry's school, that I saw Jerry again. I was at this other guy's house for a get-together, and Jerry was there (apparently the two of them were friends and I didn't know it). We exchanged phone numbers and went out the next day. And we've been together ever since--over 12 years now.
So, on to my near heart-attack...
I was pulling weeds from our landscaping yesterday, because we need to put down some new mulch. I hate doing this, because I'm terrified of spiders, so I was a little on-edge and jumpy. See this plant? (no fucking clue what it's called, I don't "do" gardening or plants or flowers or any of that!)
She does kind of look like a scary wild animal, though, right?

The Barney Butter + coconut butter combo on my waffle for lunch was INCREDIBLE. And the breakfast pizza was amazing!
1/2 recipe of whole wheat pizza crust (see that recipe below)
1 pkg frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and squeezed dry
3/4 cup of 2% cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. chopped green bell pepper
6 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled (I used the Hormel Black Label bacon that is 70 cals for 4 slices)
onion powder, salt, and black pepper to taste (I used about 1/4 tsp of each)
Spray a pie plate with cooking spray and sprinkle a little flour around the bottom. Spread the dough out along the bottom and slightly up the sides of the pie plate (adding flour if necessary to keep it from sticking). Spread the broccoli out on the crust, and top that with 1/2 cup of the cheese. Sprinkle the bacon and peppers on top of that. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the whole thing, and then top with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until eggs are just set (it took 35 minutes for me). Let it sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
Makes 4 servings. Per serving for Breakfast Pizza:
|Breakfast Pizza nutrition|
Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup hot water
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. yeast (one packet)
Combine in a bowl until a ball forms and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 15-20 minutes. [To make pizza (not the breakfast pizza shown above), spread out dough on a pizza pan and bake at 475 for about 5-8 minutes. Then top with your toppings, and bake again until cheese is bubbly and toppings are done.]
Have you ever been scared half to death like I was with Estelle? I've had lots of moments like those, but the moment with Estelle yesterday was definitely the loudest I've ever screamed.
