Wow, what a week-end!

Friday was the grand opening crop at Feeling Scrappy. Those ladies did a fantastic job. I was away much of the afternoon but while I was there everything moved along at a nice pace and they had a great mix of challenges, games and general questions. They worked great together as a team and the two design members only started on April 30th!!! Kudos to you all.

I won a game and completed a few of the challenges and was therefore entered in the prize drawings. I just found out this afternoon that I WON one of the prizes!! I'm getting an AMM Tote-ally Cool Scrapbook Bag ~ can't wait! (It sooooo beats a rotten cantaloupe - I'll save THAT story for another day!)

Saturday I spent the day at a Girl Scout camp doing my cabin camping and outdoor cooking training. I actually had a great time. It was a small, friendly group of Brownie troop leaders and the trainer was enthusiastic and really taught us a lot - and made it fun! Later this month I do an overnight for tent camping and I hope that training goes as well.

Sunday I worked on a bunch of the challenges for the Feeling Scrappy crop. This is one I did for challenge #4 BOM - A Favorite Thing....

Lot's of compliments on the delicious looking pizza (and the LO). So, here's the basic recipe.
I triple this recipe and make Eight 9-inch pizzas.

Thin Pizza Crust

Preheat oven to 500F

.25oz pkt of active dry yeast
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
3/4 cup 110 degree water
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
pizza sauce (we use Ragu traditional sauce)
cheese and toppings

Dissolve yeast and sugar in water; allow to rest about 10 minutes. In a separate bowl combine flour and salt; add yeast mixture and mix well - use a heavy spoon or your hand like I do. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes. Press the dough onto a lightly oiled pizza pan. Add sauce, cheese and toppings. Bake in 500 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes.

To make the buffalo chicken pizza: saute diced chicken breast meat with 2 or 3 tablespoons of Texas Pete buffalo style chicken wing barbeque sauce; take a few spoons of your regular pizza sauce and add three or four good shakes of Tabasco, spread on crust; add cheese, I use a mozzarella and cheddar mix; top with the buffalo chicken. I also usually add some thinly sliced red onion and pre-cooked bacon slices.
