I don’t know about you, but this weekend just raced past.
No trips out of the house, but there was an “Amazon Run” and I love how I can get face wash and food for thought in.the.same.package!
The food complaining is at a peak in this house. So last Wednesday I whipped up a batch of my favorite pizza dough ever (thanks to YEAST!!) and on Friday night I made pizza with ricotta, chicken sausage, artichoke hearts, and olives. It was so good. And not a typical Friday meal at all!
The Saturday encore was a Buffalo Chicken Pizza…another hit! (and I have the dough for 2 more pizzas in the freezer!)
Sunday was a “breakfast for dinner” winner with hash browns, sausage, and eggs! No picture, but trust me… it was good!
I also have been thinking lots about Ravelry, and specifically how to track projects and not use Ravelry. I think I came up with a work around that I am comfortable with.
You can see that I made a new “In Progress” page and have even added a project! I will be adding things in as I have time, but until Ravelry fixes their issues, this is my solution for project tracking. I am still working out how I will purchase patterns and would love to hear what you all are doing!
I hope your weekend was full of good things that spill over into your week! (and may it go as quickly as the weekend did!)
Poetry, pizza, and radiant skin are wonderful ways to start the week! I noticed your “In Progress” page over the weekend and think it’s a great way to track your projects. So much more accessible than rav and everything in one place. Great idea, Kat (and I might copy)!
Those pizzas look delish! I really need to learn to make pizza dough. We have a big bag of yeast, so that’s not an issue, either!
I’m still okay using Ravelry, and I feel like I can’t really abandon it because the majority of my sales happen there. But I am slowly adding patterns to a Payhip shop, and I know quite a lot of designers are doing the same (or putting their patterns on other sites like Etsy).
we have breakfast for dinner every week and it’s always a delight. We had homemade pizza yesterday for dinner, yum. Gearing up for a good knitting week 🙂
The pizza looks GREAT! I made homemade sweat Italian , artichoke, black olive pizza
a week ago. Eric and I loved it, the littles, not so much!
Going to check out your progress page, thank you.
Those pizzas look fabulous! Thanks for the link to the dough recipe.
Oh boy! Those pizzas look great!!! Every once in awhile we order pizza and are always disappointed – once you make homemade pizza, nothing else can compare.
Im a Chicago Pizza snob, and I must say yours looks amazing. Our weekend was wonky. We paddleboarded, gardened, and caught up with our kids. Because the Cardinals of St Loius have COVID, we have had no Cubs baseball for 3 days. So i was tortured by hours of golf on TV. Not really, Fireman just watched it and I was out and on my porch knitting
You have to love those Amazon runs. Your pizzas look delicious. Making extra dough and freezing it is a great idea.
Your pizza looks amazing! My husband made us homemade pizza on Friday as well — it was so perfect! We always talk about how much cheaper it is to make our own, especially since there’s now FIVE of us eating pizza! Thanks for all of the toppings ideas!
I love your Ravelry workaround. It reminds me so much of how we USED to blog before Ravelry! Thank you for sharing it.
I have to confess that whilst I am a knitter I have never been a big ravelry user and I haven’t quite got to grips with the current situation but I can tell that it has been very upsetting which makes me really sad. I am wondering how on earth that could happen. I do hope that it can be resolved soon, although I am sensing the for many it is too late.
Your pizza looks amazing, I am not surprised it was a big hit. Amazon is a big no for me, I got rid of my account a few years ago, I can’t buy from an organisation that treats its staff so poorly and has effected so many businesses. The bargains on there are not always what they seem, I have come across items that are ‘reduced’ from an amount higher than the RRP.
Cool idea for project tracking, thank you! I’m still using Ravelry … and still not being very consistent with the details! LOVE your pizza! Marc is still not eating gluten. and I am missing pizza and pasta the most!
(p.s. why do people leave comments about not liking Amazon on your blog? do folks not understand that they are visiting you, and they need to be civil, if not nice?!)
