Off-Topic / Re: Homemade Pizza
« on: May 09, 2011, 11:32:28 pm »Message ID: 351429
I just had homemade pizza for supper tonight.  I got a bread machine at a yard sale last year for $4 so I use that to make the crust and divide it between my two pans.  I used to make it by hand, but this way I can do other things while it's getting made and still control the ingredients.  I seemed to get the seasoning just right tonight, but brushing with olive oil first sounds real good.  I grew up on pepperoni and mushroom.  I still like that, but tonight it was just plain pepperoni.  I mean I covered them with as many as I could.  I use an Italian cheese blend and cover it completely.  Sometimes I make a wheat crust, but it's too heavy for lighter toppings.  I like spinach and portobello sometimes, but haven't mastered it at home yet.

I've been on them for a while.  The paperwork is a hassle.  One time I had to visit the office six times because they changed their procedure before changing the instructions.  Another time I had part-time work that required a 32 mile round trip for a short three-hour visit, four days a week, at low wages, when gas was $4 per gallon and they didn't consider that as part of my expenses.  It's very helpful, but quite a hassle.  They don't seem to realize we can't be in two places at once or that the time we spend jumping through hoops is that much less we have to spend on generating an income so we wouldn't need them. :dontknow:

Why do you have to choose between believing in God and astrology?  Why can't God, who's said to be all powerful, have put the stars in the heavens in an order that has meaning to our lives?  Now the human brain that interprets them on the other hand...  The interpretations are only as good as the astrologer.  You need to find someone who resonates with you.  All things are possible when you believe in an infinitely powerful creator. :star: :angel11:

I've had pets so long I can't remember not having any.  It wouldn't be home without some creatures around.  This photo is of the Tuffy clan.  Tuffy was chosen by my late dog Silkie, just months before she died.  He's the one on the right.  The others are (from left to right):  Missy, Nilly and Cali.

Extra butter popcorn is great, but my favorite is Pop Secret Homestyle.  It reminds me of the popcorn I got as a kid.  Mom would pop it in this heavy skillet with a glass lid.  She'd have dad melt some butter to pour over it, then salt it.  It all went into a steel mixing bowl.  Yumm.  Want some right now.

Maybe Richard Branson will make weightless birth an option on his spaceport flights someday.   :binkybaby:

I take it none of these companies care if you do more than one of them?  That'd be cool.  Thanks for talking about them.  It was  very helpful.   :thumbsup:
