Pizza Thursday Report for October 7th, 2010

Hi gang!  How is everyone’s week going?  Scott and I have been slammed!  I know I keep saying this week after week, but seriously, each week keeps getting crazier. :o  I’m a little stressed over stuff right now because I have so much going on.  I’m starting to have anxiety dreams, do you get those?  My most common ones are that I’m in high school and can’t find my locker.  EVER.  If for some magical reason I make to my locker, there’s a lock on it and I don’t know the combination. FYI, in real life I never had a lock on my lockers and our lockers were not the ones with locks built in.  So you can see why this would stress me out!

Next one is that I’m driving and the brakes aren’t working properly.  I have to put all my weight onto the brake and hope that the car finally slows down so that I don’t hit the person in front of me.

I’m also battling a small cold-type thing.  Monday evening I felt a little off and by Tuesday I totally felt like butt.  Wednesday I was okay and by yesterday evening I was exhausted and not feeling well again.

I haven’t talked about it too much but I’m running the Columbus Marathon next weekend and I really don’t have time to be sick!  For the record, I’m running the half and not the full (originally I typed that “fool”  HA!).  I’m a half girl and not a marathon girl just so we’re all on the same page. :D

Anyway let’s talk pizza!  Dough turned out fabs yesterday and so did the pizza.

  • Whole Wheat Crust
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded moz
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Red Onion
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Spicy Italian sausage

Yum!  The sundried tomatoes didn’t burn or get crispy this time around because I soaked them in hot water first.  That helped so much!  They plumped up and got even sweeter.  A few pieces had some crispy dark edges but nothing catastrophic.

The Italian sausage is actually sausage that was made during a sausage making class that Scott and I attended.  Lots more on that topic in the future!  It added a nice touch to the pizza and it’s all from local sources and it was homemade, can’t beat that!

Wine of the evening was one of our favorites, Da Vinci Chianti!  It’s a lovely deep red with a pretty intense dryness at the end (to us).

Okay gang here’s the deal, it is now officially HOCKEY season!  Which means instead of me talking about Roadshow, I’ll probably talk about hockey instead.

I’m also pretty sure this will bore you. ;)

Last night was the first Pens game of the season (not counting preseason games) and they played in their brand spanking new arena!  Too bad the game was horrible and they lost.  Okay, the game wasn’t that bad but they really seemed to be scrambling and not really quite sure what they were doing.  Gah!  Next game is tomorrow!

Alright, time to publish.  Tell me how you’ve been doing this week!

  1. I hope you get in some good rest this weekend and leave that stress in the office :) It’s been NUTS here this week, too. I’m ready for the weekend.

  2. Hope you feel better soon. That would stink to run a half under the weather at all.

    Also, hope the anxiety lets up. I know that feeling all too well.

    I live in a hockey town and I swear it’s all I hear. I’m always “wha? We have a hockey team?” ;)

    and I hope you feel better.

  4. I’m glad I’m not the only one who refers to it as “feeling like butt” when I’m sick, heh. But I’m sorry to hear you are still under the weather. Hopefully you’ll kick it before your race.

    I always thought I was a half-er too but I’m seriously considering a full marathon for next Spring or Fall, just because, but we’ll see.

    I slept awful last night and I’m sure it was anxiety. I’ve been so busy lately and then I had to get up early and run this morning so of course I woke up every hour from 12-7. But things should slow down today.

    Hope you have a relaxing weekend! :)

    That’s funny. I always dream that it’s the first day of school, I’m in high school, and I lose my schedule…. so I’m always late to my classes. Not even making it to some… Sometimes my husband is in my dreams (we knew each other in high school) and we never have a class together and I’m always jealous of the girls in his class.
    I also have dreams that I can’t run, or other dreams that I can’t hit people, try as I may, I don’t have enough power to

  6. Oy – I hope you feel better soon. Don’t you just love how colds (and other ailments) pop up during (half) marathon season? Not cool.

    By the way, I vote for running the full marathon. The training itself is a (once-in-a-life-time) experience!
