Pizza, Cole slaw, Bag, Games & Tea set


Northwest Indiana can't seem to remember spring!  So homemade pizza using onions from my garden and frozen green peppers from my friend's garden!  I have finally found a recipe that we like that I can make the crust ahead, prebaking, freezing and then pulling one out of the freezer the day I make them and adding the toppings.  I used homemade pizza sauce I froze also! I added cheeses, little hamburg and pepperoni besides the onion and green pepper.  Quite proud of myself for being able to accomplish this! lol


I bought four heads of cabbage and am making freezer cole slaw for my "wonderful gardener".  He really likes it!  I use my mini Cuisinart for grating the cabbage and it takes me forever.  He is worth it!


My friend made this darling little potato bag for me to bake a potato or two in the microwave.   I like to wear a lot of pink so she chose pink to make it for me!  Thank you Anna!!!!!!!


I am not a game person!  I need to learn to play some games because I am going to start mentoring a kindergarten boy one hour a week at a public school.  I am doing it through an organization called Kids Hope (www.kidshopeusa.org ).  It is a wonderful organization nationwide through the churches.  We are not allowed to say anything about God or the church unless they ask a question which we can answer but I am hoping I can make a positive influence in his young life and show a little love of Jesus.



I received a couple new magazines in the mail!  I drool over some of the ideas in the Country Gardens magazine.  My "wonderful gardener" wishes I would not get new ideas!  The little one cup tea set is a gift from him.  I was heartbroken when I broke the handle off the cup!  He glued it back together but I can't use it for anything except a decoration but the tea pot I am still able to use.  Blogging is such hard work!  I think it is about time for a cup of tea.  Would you care to join me?  Pull up a chair and tell me what flavor you would like!!!

I'd never heard of frozen coleslaw before. I'll have to try it when I have lots of cabbage.

Hi Nancy! That pizza looks great! I bet it was delicious! You did good! That was a nice gift your friend made you! Freezer coleslaw, sounds like a good way to use that cabbage! The kindergarten boy will be so blessed to have you for his mentor! The love of Jesus flows from your heart so it will be evident for him to see! The magazines would be a great accompaniment to the tea; make mine black, please! Blessings from Bama!

I would love to join your for a cup of tea. Your pizza looks GREAT. I make my crusts ahead of time and freeze them too. It saves so much time. Your freezer slaw sounds great too. I love your new potato nuking bag. That is great. The Kids Hope programs sounds wonderful!

and I don't see the Word verification at the bottom to comment either. Good job!

Hi Nancy,
I'm so happy to find you r kind comment on my recent post. In answer to your question...Yes, my funny little kitty ate my wool felted polka dot Easter Eggs. I found the remnants of them later as I discovered colored hairballs here and there. I quickly learned to put them safely in a cupboard.

We are sisters in Christ. I have met so many precious ladies via blogland. The love of our Lord, Savior and Messiah is evident in so many of their lives.

I wish you a wonderful and Happy Easter!
Blessings,
Carolynn xo
