I am a huge fan of the Lavash Bread from Trader Joe’s. Ever since I was told about it, Mike and I have had so many different combinations of pizza. Mike prefers the “supreme” with sausage, peppers, onions, and red sauce. I prefer more the Ragu Light Alfredo Sauce with spinach and chicken.
Since we are due to go on vacation soon, we really needed to clean out the fridge. We had some leftover pulled pork and cabbage. I decided to put both of them on a pizza and top it with my favorite cheese (Sargento’s 4 Cheese Mexican Reduced Fat).
I know it sounds strange, but it actually tastes really good! Add a little bit of garlic to the top and its pretty tasty!
I know my birthday is over, but I do want to share one last part of the extravaganza. For the whole week now, I have noticed little things disheveled around the house that normally are not even touched. Hall closet lights are left on. Boxes moved. The OCD in me notices things like that.
Finally, Mike had to ask me where my jersey was located that I won for the NMORS season last year. I felt really bad because he was so close to finding it, but just didn’t look long enough.
Anyway, for a couple of days he would sit in our other bedroom with the door shut and I was under strict rules to not go in there. I behaved myself and stayed away. And here is what it was:
Who knew he could be so crafty? I guess he made friends with the people at Hobby Lobby and he is now a VIP or something there. 🙂 I love it! We have a trophy room with all the posters of all of our races and I’m making room for it as we speak.
I had to show you the meal we had for my birthday just because I do like food and blogging about food. My mom makes the best grilled chicken. She grills it and then puts BBQ sauce and hot sauce together in a mug and adds it the last five minutes to give it a kick. So in honor of her (because if I was in Vegas I would make her make this for me), I made her chicken with a side of Caesar and watermelon. Isn’t summer awesome? I am so glad I have a summer birthday!
P.S. I loved this card from my mom:
I’m really trying to blog as much as I can on here, but with working full time and a lot of riding and errands this weekend, I got a little behind on what I wanted to do. I started off this morning with some Overnight Oats
that I got from the Peanut Butter Fingers. She usually adds banana or strawberries to it and it really makes a difference. I really love strawberries, and I used honey strawberry greek yogurt to flavor it a little more. I like snacking on it too.
Tonight for dinner, I made some chicken with some Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki marinade on it. We are pairing it with some brown rice. Mike and I used to eat salmon and brown rice ALL THE TIME when we first got married, so it brought back memories busting out the Uncle Ben’s brown rice again.
I wasn’t able to get a ride workout in tonight since I got home from work too late, so it will be a one mile run around the neighborhood with Barney and then some of this:
