A long walk down
by the lake.
A wind-free day
felt like seventy.
Geese flocking together on the water.
Flying in for the 'honking' convention.
Killdeer following me as I walk, leading me away from their family.
Do killdeer really nest this soon?
Tortilla pizza lunch with friends,
A nurturing talk with my writer bud
Helping another with her new blog.
My Recipe for Tortilla pizza
1 flour tortilla
1 TB Tomato paste
Spread tomato paste on one tortilla. Sprinkle with oregano and/or other Italian spices. Top with meat (try cooked chicken breast and/or sausage). Add vegetable toppings (I like green & red pepper, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, and one green olive, all chopped of course). Sprinkle mozzarella over all. Place on one lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in 400 degree oven for 12 minutes. If tortilla isn't crisp, bake longer. It's the crispness that makes this thin crust pizza so delicious. Also, I purchase freshly made tortillas, so try to buy fresh if you can. Enjoy!
These are the kind of daily pleasures that filled my week. The only thing that sort of went wrong was not entering the Pitch Madness contest on Monday. Since word count was an issue, I spent up to the last minute deleting words in my book, but failed to make the midnight deadline. That EST acronym blew right past me. Yep, that's right, I forgot the Eastern Standard Time zone. But maybe it's just as well. The book was flabby in places, I discovered. ~Sigh~
How was your week?
Have a nice weekend!
