Tasty Tuesday: Sicilian Pizza review

When I was a little girl, I LOVED pizza! I still do actually. But being mostly low-carb, I've not found that I like many of the low carb options and even worse, the normal high carb options no longer taste good! There should be a law against such things!! Anyway, as a little girl we would either go to Pizza Hut and get a deep dish pizza or on a rare occasion, we would make a deep dish at home using a Bisquick dough (Bisquick was always in our home). So, enter the Sicilian Pizza with Pepperoni and Spicy Tomato Sauce and I am in heaven! No, it's not low carb, yes it is delicious! Worth every single bite.

Okay, but in true HoHa disclaimer* fashion, the day we made it most recently almost became the day of three dinners. Joel started making the dough.

Seriously, it's just five ingredients: flour, yeast, salt, olive oil, and water. NOTHING to be afraid of. In the mixing bowl everything went. They get mixed up until it pulls away from the sides but sticks to the bottom.
 

That's when things got a little "oh man!" Even though we have made this recipe several times, when we looked again, we realised that it has to rest for 12 to 24 hours after this point. Thus ends the making of dinner one which wouldn't be eaten until the next day. It had to rest, I guess all that spinning in the mixer wore it out.


Enter day two. I just love sticking my finger in a risen bowl of dough. Cannot help myself.


Yes, that's a quarter cup of olive oil, do it! Oil is your friend!! We put the dough in and stretched it out. Let it rest, while I made the spicy tomato sauce.


In case you were wondering, that's what nine cloves of garlic look like all chopped up. OMNOMNOM! I love the smell of garlic! 


This is where this pizza gets a little crazy, it goes olive oil, dough, cheese, sauce, pepperoni. BUT...


then it goes full on omonomariffic at the table. This recipe gets a 15 out of 10. It's great to eat straing out the oven, cold or reheated day after, even two days after (if it lasts that long). Go and make it yourself, tell me how you like it!

Special thanks to Joel for letting me harass him with my camera phone while he was making this.



*HoHa disclaimer-I practice Hands-on Home arts (HoHa for short). I'm not here to make you think our life is perfect, but to show you that life can be fun. So this day, we put the dough aside for the next day and I decided to make split pea soup with ham for dinner that night. Even though I have the WORST luck with dried beans and it turned out that it was a crockpot recipe, we went ahead with it. At dinner time, the peas were just barely crunchy any more and we were saved from having to make a THIRD dinner in the same day. If you follow me on instagram, this was the biscuit day. I had to make something that was going to be delicious and edible in the same day!

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…
