ever notice that the hardest thing (foodwise) to photograph is thin crust pizza?
it is for me. I've tried. always ends up looking ugh. could be the best tasting.

I've been wanting to try this recipe for a bit. whole wheat vegan pizza dough may not sound great to some. but, for me who loves whole wheat over not, it does.

whole wheat pizza dough
1 cup sauteed button mushroom, zucchini, red onion
1 8oz can of crushed tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup shredded soy mozzarella
1/4 cup shredded soy Parmesan cheese

used a glass baking dish. baked at 425 for 20 minutes.
it was really good. loved that the dough was so easy to make.

surgery done

had to have (3) dental surgeries. nightmare. due to pain and the joys of mouth problems. so been eating a lot of soup and agar agar "jello". have you ever taken the time to look at the sodium in canned soup? just wow! it's disguisting. i literally spent 20 minutes in the aisle reading labels. hopefully, i'll be able to start eating normal in a week or so. after almost 2 monthes, i'm ready to start cooking regularly again.

dealing at work

i don't know how most places of work are. but, my work likes to reward us for making different goals with food. this can be a huge problem. what do they usually give us: pizza. definite nono for me.hello dairy overload! you just hope for bread sticks. that way people don't start the questions. this last time, we earned breakfast. be it a food allergy or dietary preference, breakfast is a hard thing. almost a slap. do you really want to go out of your way for bacon (no thank you) and toast?
so, you get to walk that fine line of how to avoid the situation.
do you call in? go eat your lovely toast? explain why you aren't eating?
i made the mistake of saying no thank you. that leads to the dreaded embarassing explaination. then, becomes people going "well, you could eat.......uh......toast". you want to say "yeah, enjoy your eggs, pancakes, and lovely drinks (milk)".
it's a no win embarassing situation.
