Tasty Tuesday: Pizza modified



We normally have homemade pizza every other week or so. We make our own crust from one of several recipes that we've collected over the years. I'd share them here, but I would need to get copyright permission first and I'm feeling kind of lazy about that as I type this up, so instead, you'll get the crust recipe that I got to use since I can't eat carbs anymore.

I found this recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza from Eat.Drink.Smile via pinterest. I followed the directions almost exactly, my one alteration was how I riced the cauliflower, I used the grater on my food processor.  It worked great. Not only did it taste good, but I could pick it up like pizza, now I did let it rest a good long time before putting it under the broiler, because of the fact that there were other pizzas that needed to be cooked. It's unusual because not only does it work for pizza, it's close enough to the real thing that you eat it and think "There's something different about this, but I don't quite know what it is."

Okay, I will also share with you one of our pizza sauce recipes.

1 can tomato past with Italian herbs
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped fine
Olive oil

Heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil in a pan, add onion. Cook until tender and starting to brown, add garlic and cook until fragrant (just a few seconds). Add tomato paste and sauce, heat through. Viola, pizza sauce.

You can add your own seasonings to it like basil, oregano, marjoram, etc. It's very accepting of your experimentation.

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…
