Sass's Sunday Salvation Show

Hello everyone!  We had a relatively sleepy day - I finished a book this morning (I'll be reviewing it later in the week - check back!), worked on a couple of wedding projects, and fixed a nice dinner.  Plus, while I sat in my chair, glue gun at the ready, I watched a marathon of zombies - 'Walking Dead' on AMC.  Not exactly light, cheerful fare; rather a bit apocalyptic, gory, gooey (and more than a little cheesy).  

Dinner at day's end was good.  I made homemade chicken bacon pizza, crudite, salad, and fro-yo strawberry shakes.  Yummy.  I found a really good, really easy recipe for pizza crust on All Recipes.  It has over 1,800 ratings, with 4.5 stars overall.  Good enough for me to give it a try.  It really was easy.  The only thing I changed in my process was that, after I added the yeast to the warm water and sugar, I let it 'bloom' a bit before adding the rest of the ingredients.  The recipe makes enough dough to fill the bottom of a cookie sheet, too.  After stretching out the dough, I spread on a small jar of pizza sauce, bacon bits, re-hydrated green pepper (I didn't have a fresh one), a smallish diced yellow onion, diced cooked chicken, a good sprinkling of black pepper, and grated Monterrey Jack cheese (again, no mozzie, but jack is nice, too.) I grated a little Romano over the top of the jack, and sprinkled a teaspoon or so of a pizza herb mix.  I baked the pizza at 375 degrees for about half an hour - until the cheese turned a bit golden.  

Fabulous blogger that I am, I forgot to take a picture when it came out of the oven.  Here's what it looked like when dinner was over, though!  That should tell you something! 

I even got a 'Not too shabby!' from MMM - the master of understatement.  I figure I'm doing pretty well if I get a 'that's all right'  or 'not too shabby'.  He doesn't exactly load me down with praise, as a general rule, and claims to be picky.  He will occasionally say, "you make all kinds of yucky things taste good"!  Amazing. 

Can I change the subject and tell you a thing or two about Sherry?  Sherry, from Pondered, Primed, Perfected (P3), submitted my favorite link from last week; her work's not too shabby, either!  In fact, it's downright cute and clever.  She rescued a too-short, beat-up side table, and turned it around!.  Gave it a whole new, amazing life, as a matter of fact.  

Click over to Sherry's blog and check out more of her creativity.  She's got a sweet thang going over there - and tell her Sass sent you!

So Sherry, here's my button.  Thanks so much for showing us your cute new end table!
