Homemade pizza from scratch, and a video of DD's room

June 9th, 2014 at 08:12 pm

I just finished eating the pizza I made from scratch for the first time. I used a recipe from Allrecipes.com for a quick, easy pizza dough, and I like how it turned out. I topped it with seasoned tomato sauce, cheese, black olives and half of a large green bell pepper. It cost about 50 cents to make the dough, 75 cents worth of cheese, 33 cents for tomato sauce, 50 cents for half a bell pepper, and $1.29 for the olives. So with a few cents for seasonings that's about $3.50 for 3 people. Not bad.

I made caramel apple oatmeal for breakfast with a Jonagold apple, and some of the goat's milk caramel syrup I bought last night. DH didn't have any, so there is one serving leftover I or DD can eat tomorrow.

For lunch we were away from home with a friend ad we went to Subway. I spent $25 total there for 4 people, which I suppose isn't too bad. DH always gets double meat on his salad there. After DD goes back to Alaska on Thursday we'll be doing a lot less eating out.

We had to pick up more chicken today for tomorrow's dinner as I had not realized we were almost out. They had 3# bags of frozen on sale for $9.99. We can often find them for $7 or $8, so we just got one bag this time. When they go lower we will get 2 or 3 at a time. One bag typically lasts us around 2 weeks.

We also finally finished putting up all the shelves in DD's room today, so we took a video she can show her friends and family. http://youtu.be/JIjcMlf7p2I

    Thanks! I really like how it turned out. This is probably the cleanest it will ever be again. Lol

    That is a great way to set up a very small space. Nice job!

    Wow! Love it! Your daughter must be very creative and smart. In so little space she still prioritized storage for fabric, yarn, and a way cute doll house that she made herself!

    The room is awesome!!!!

  6. NJDebbie Says:

    I use this recipe for my homemade pizza crust and it's delicious. Just in case you want to try something different.

    There's a great pizza crust recipe in the Tightwad Gazette, too, if you own that!

    That is a very cool use of space!

    Thanks, Joan she has been working on that dollhouse for four years now. I am trying to get her to make a video tour of the inside and outside because photos just don't do it justice. She actually sewed or crocheted all those little clothes on the clothesline, and that is only SOME of them.

    Oh please get her to do a video! A ten year old I know loves to make stuff with boxes. I'd love to show her a video your daughter would make.
