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
