More G@% &*)( #!@*&^% Snow!

I feel like Clark W. Griswold in Christmas Vacation, when he rants about his boss, Mr. Shirley, after he realizes there will be no Christmas bonus that year!
It occurs just a few seconds later in this scene...

That was my reaction today when I noticed it was snowing, again! And today had started out so nice, the sun was shining... I was happy... But that all changed this afternoon.

As a celebration of how nice it was, I made us a pizza for lunch...
We usually use a pre-made, frozen crust from an Italian specialty store in St. Paul, MN, called Cossetta's. We try and swing by there when we go down to "the cities". I was at the local market and found something similar, so I thought I'd give them a try.

I minced 2 cloves of garlic and put them in a small dish with some olive oil. I heated it in the microwave for 30 seconds and set it aside while I cut up some green peppers and onions.

I brushed the garlic infused olive oil on the crust, sprinkled on some Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, topped it with the peppers and onions, added a little mozzarella cheese and a few shakes of parmesan... 9 minuets and 425ยบ later... It's Lunch!! The crust turned out to be pretty good, it was crisp and almost cracker like!

Tonight, it's a little comfort food... home made Chicken Pot Pies! If I can't get out and ride, I can at least enjoy the food!!
