Now, I am certainly aware that being humble is an honorable trait. I am also aware that when you rock out all day and things just all fit into place, it’s good to celebrate the high!
In my experience, awesome days frequently follow the awful days. Today is proof for the pudding.
I mentioned yesterday how tired I was. I had a headache all day long that wouldn’t go away no matter how much water I drank, ibuprofen I took, or peace I found. I had trouble sleeping because my head hurt so bad and finally woke up at 3:30 am with a full out migraine that shook my world in the bad way. Tired, frustrated, and in complete misery, I reached for the Excedrin migraine, rubbed a bit of Tiger Balm on my temples and tried to go back to sleep.
Praise the Lord, I woke up still tired but with no pain in the brain.
Being able to function was the first success of the day! The second was the deliciousness of my morning oats. Same routine as yesterday.
The school day started out in the most positive way. All good there. (As opposed to the trouble with 3 disobedient girls like yesterday.)
Lunch was another success. I had left-overs from dinner, but opted for something more fresh… and I’m glad I did.
I present to you, veggie loving between German genius.
Have you had enough or do you want more?
That’s what I thought!
Delicious pumpkin seed German bread
Zucchini, thinly sliced
Mushrooms, thinly sliced
Tomato, thinly sliced
The kiwi and clementines are equally worthy of praise!
The day continued to go beautifully. Obviously, I haven’t gotten a lot of exercise lately… so my PE lesson was really hard today. Is it bad that I use PE as a personal exercise session? Regardless, these 8 and 9 year olds can certainly keep up and give me a run for my money! We have so much fun together!
As you know, I’ll be away this coming weekend. Even though it’s only for 2 nights, I’m in holiday mode. Holiday mode= clean out the refrigerator mode. Last night while surveying the loads of produce I have stocked up, I decided on making homemade pizza for dinner tonight. Some times, it’s hard to remain humble.
My pizza idea rocked!
First, may I introduce Herby Wheat. No, that’s not an elderly chap from the British Isles; that my friend, is my pizza dough.
Now for Herby’s sauce in life, Pesto Sun-dried Tomato Pizza Sauce.
Ladies and Gentlemen, choose your toppings.
Fresh mozzarella cheese
I later decided to also add crumbled feta cheese
Let’s bring back our friend Herby Wheat- he obviously needed that rest. Look how plump and happy he is!
Form the dough as you wish. Spread the sauce. Begin layering veggies!
Once you’ve got everything just the way you want it… toss it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.
Now, I say this in the most humble way. If you could smell the euphoric fumes that wafted from my oven tonight, you’d buy a ticket, come to Germany, knock on my door, and beg for me to make this beauty again. And I would. Gladly. Except next time, I’d make my own pesto so it isn’t quite so salty.
May I add, this is the best pizza I have ever eaten. So good it made me slow down to really enjoy it.
Cheers! Have a wonderful evening everyone!
