If all else fails cook๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฝ

So I spent my day being very productive, made my bed and didn’t get back in it!! Hive five for me๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ I visited dad, took care of my errands and then decided I wanted to cook! Let me back up, for brief moment right after my post this morning. The devil decided to move in with a sneak attack. Me and the hubby had a 20 minute, you need to find a job talk. Now, what did I tell y’all? One day he has my back, the next day he don’t! It’s like I have my own personal Trump living here๐Ÿ˜‚ Anyway I decided to shake that off and proceed with my day.  So I have thought about putting my energy into things that make me feel good, and cooking is one of them! If I’m not drinking I’m eating, although I have gained a few pounds I still love my food. I will eventually get to the healthy part of my healing real soon, so don’t panic๐Ÿ˜ Since I’m a pretty good cook, I sometimes like to experiment with different foods. I’m a southern girl at heart, but hate most southern foods. (more on that later) So here’s a little peek at my Homemade Deep Dish pizza! I don’t really care for pizza chains, so I decided to make up my own version! Im not the best photographer, but I think you all can see how I manage to pull it together. The ingredients are pretty cheap, things you can find right in your grocery store:

  • Italian Hot Sausage
  • Pepperoni 
  • Canadian Ham
  • Bell pepper, onions, mushrooms, jalapeรฑo 
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes (for homemade pizza sauce)
  • My special seasonings ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Refrigerated Pizza Crust (not a baker yet)
  • 3 Deep Dish Pans

And there you have it, ingredients for Deep Dish pizza. It isn’t any fancy way to cook it, just put crust in oven, take out, layer ingredients, top with sauce and your done. Here are the pics from the finish product to the beginning. Whoo….I’m exhausted, but my day ended well. So time to turn in for the night, hoping you all have a great one!

It isn’t the prettiest pie, but it was yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹
