‘Blah’ is pretty much the best adjective to describe myself over the past couple of days. On Thursday night, I literally said goodnight to Adam and went up to bed at 6:45pm. I can’t remember the last time I’ve done something like that. Besides waking up at midnight because I was hungry (seriously…who get woken up by their stomach growling?!) I slept for almost 11 hours straight. Obviously my body was trying to tell me something. I think it’s important to slow things down when life gets a little busy, but I hadn’t been doing so. Note to self: listen to your body.
…but now it’s the weekend, and I couldn’t be happier to have a little ‘time-out’. I think Macy is also happy that the weekend has arrived and to spend more time with us. This was her on Friday morning when I was leaving for work. She does this sometimes- stares out the front window longingly- refusing to even look at me. Totally pissed off. If she only knew that I’d trade places with her in a heartbeat. Oh, to spend my days lounging in the sun on a down filled dog bed, awaiting my next walk and snuggle session.

Last night, all I wanted in the world was PIZZA. So, I made one. No point denying myself something that I can’t stop thinking about, because sometimes a salad just won’t cut it.
Pizza is so easy to make, and homemade is way better (in my opinion) because you can control the amount of oil and other ingredients that go into the final product. I had originally planned on attempting my own dough and sauce, but at 7pm on a Friday night after the week I’d had, super market ingredients were going to have to cut it!
1 12″ multigrain thin pizza crust
1 1/4 cup chopped fresh shiitake mushrooms
2 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup roasted red peppers (sliced)
5 1/2 tbsp. organic tomato sauce
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp basil
1/8 tsp ground pepper
3 tbsp virgin olive oil
