Baked Potatoe Pizza

I found this recipe here.

Pizza Crust
1 T yeast
1 C warm water
1 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt
2 T vegetable oil
2 1/2 C flour

Mix together, knead with hands, let rise 10 mins. Roll out onto pizza pan. Poke holes in it with a fork. Now let it pre-cook for 5 mins @ 375.

When the crust is ready, put a layer of mashed potatoes (I made my own red mashed patatoes,which I would suggest, but I suppose you could just use boxed mashed potatoes). On top of that, put whatever baked potatoe toppings you like--example: broccoli, tomato, bacon, green onions and lots of cheese! With all the toppings on bake it again for another 15-20 mins (or until you feel like the crust is ready/the topping are warm).

Serve with sour cream. We dipped ours in Ranch Dressing.

Fancy Socks

I saw a tutorial on line for adding cute lace and ribbons to ordinary socks. Lindsay needed new socks. All of hers were getting too small and just plain worn out. So, we got new socks this week, and then I went to town making them fancy.

My Little Pumpkins

I saw a cute idea in an old Family Fun magazine that I had to tye dye t-shirts for Halloween. I have been super excited for Fall to get here. I think I am just tired of the heat. So, I got all the supplies and called a few friends over. This morning we all made our little tye dye pumpkin shirts. I think they turned out pretty cute. What do you think?
