Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

I found this recipe in a cook book we got for our wedding and it has been a HUGE success! Last time I made it I tripled it so Michael could take a ton to his work.


1 tube (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust
1/2 cup alfredo sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded swiss cheese
1 1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham (I just buy the package of cubed ham that's by the bacon)
10 breaded chicken nuggets, thawed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
(for the cheese I usually just buy a blended bag)

Unroll pizza crust dough into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. baking pan; flatten the dough and build up the edges slightly. Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
Spread the crust with Alfredo sauce; sprinkle with garlic salt and swiss cheese. Top with ham, chicken nuggets and mozzarella cheese. Back for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Sick Day

Yesterday I was sick but was luckily able to have the day off to rest and today I am feeling much much better!
Today I also had the day off like I do most Tuesdays.
And because I was feeling much better I decided to do something I don't normally do.
I like to stay organized but usually once I get that way, I stay that way.
But, today I made some changes!
And, I'm glad!
I feel much more clutter-free and isn't that just a great feeling!?
As you know, I have been getting into couponing.
I am not a crazy fanatic that spends 20 hours a week (at least!) cutting and shopping.
But if I find I great deal, I jump on it!
And because of that, I have a little bit of a stock pile that I am very proud of!
I had it upstairs in the closet on one shelf as seen here:

But as you can see, I have very little well NO room left on that shelf.
I also have a fantastic closet downstairs that looks like this:

Well the truth is I don't let anybody see inside of that closet because it has been packed so full of stuff if you open the door, it falls out on you.
I'm sure you can see where this story is going.
I cleaned out and organized this closet!
Now I have room for all of my gift wrapping supplies, scrapbook and craft supplies, and my beloved stock pile!
Take a look!

This is definitely a "TA-DA!" moment

Scrapbook/Craft Supplies
Gift Bags
More Scrapbook/Craft Supplies
And the stock pile!

Happy Cleaning Day!
I'm off now, to Zumba!

Ok, I'll admit, I have heard a lot of hype about Pinterest.
Usually when I hear a lot of hype about something it makes me hesitant.
Take FaceBook, Twitter, and Blogging for example.
I was slow to get them all but am glad I did.
So I have been hearing a lot about this Pinterest.
So I FINALLY gave in and went and checked it out.
Yeah, I'm hooked. Crap.
Now I really want these shoes I saw...

I'm also going to have to find someone to make this cake for Michael...

I also MUST learn how to do my hair like this, someone teach me...

I'm also thinking about moving here now...

I also MUST organize...

And get this dress to match my shoes...

And I can't have the dress and shoes without having this...

Oh and I think maybe Michael and I should get married again so we can re-do our first kiss to look like this...

Thanks to this blog for being the one to convince me to go have a look!

Now go look!

Time to catch up!

I realize it's been a while since my last post!
Truth is, I haven't had a single thing to blog about!
I did get a new phone as you probably know so I will just update with a few new pics!

Taking a break from Peach Days, this is how
he eats a casodilla

I got some great feather earrings @ Peach Days!
Greatest nephew ever!
My phone takes panoramic pics.
This is the Gleed family celebrating my
Grandpa's b-day BBQ style!
We got a new gate for the puppy room!
It's great because it's too tall for them to
jump and it opens like a gate so I don't
have to climb over it! Love it!
Michael's grandpa found this great puppy
costume. He put it right on and had a great
time pretending he was a real puppy!
His name..."Doggie"
(This was last weekend when they beat the Jets)
Kate got me this sweet Mt. Dew shirt for
my birthday!
Love it! Love her!

My phone has a camera on front and back and
he thought it was great he could push the button
and see himself!

This is how Michael watches football...
especially when it's intense.
Found this pic of my grandparen't @ their
house and I thought it was sooo cute!
