Friday’s Finest

Pizza night usually equals Friday night family & friends time. The kitchen is full of noise, toppings and hands reaching for this and that. The beer flows and, if we are lucky, supper is eaten on the patio.

That kind of night seems like a very old memory. I know, I know, it’s only been 14 months. Life will resume but it won’t be this summer.

So I decided I needed to lighten my mood and post something that isn’t introspect and morose depressing grumpy. It falls in line with a new fun blogging challenge called “what’s on your plate”. No categories and no real rules; just bloggers connecting during this eat alone at home time.

We’ve  been doing  this for more than a dozen years so pretty sure I have written about Frifay night pizza before but for once I am feeling too laid back to have the perfect linked post.

I am including a video link to the dough recipe. Canadian and award winning plus it freezes well. So if you are in need of a great pizza dough try out this Moosehesd beer pizza dough.

Now to just master adding my link to my hosts Deb @THE WIDOW BADASS BLOG and Donna @ Retirement Reflections and bingo. A blog post that didn’t wring me out or sit in the draft file wearing me down. Just the bit of fun I needed on a Friday night.

We then proceeded to go back to the main floor; laundry bucket in one hand and the wee lad holding my other hand. It all seems good right?

Black And White and Cold all Over, # SundayStills

I missed the “rain boat” last week as I was busy having fun with the Littles. I had “frozen rain” photos all organized and ready to go but never actually got it pulled together into a post. I am not sure exactly why a post seemed so complex at the time but somehow it did. I’ve kind of had a week where it seems I have made a lot of stuff harder than it needed to be. Now that the photos are in my Word Press Media file I am going to include them in my black and white and cold all over photo challenge.
