I spent the morning working outside on our porch. When I started, the temperature was nice and cool, around 77 degrees.
(I think anything below 80 degrees feels cool. I’m always cold and Ryan is always hot, so I live under a blanket in the winter and sport fuzzy slippers in the summertime in our house.)
The weather started out temperate, but before I knew it, I was sweating in the 90-degree heat.
As hot as I was, when it was time for lunch, I couldn’t shake a craving for a hot flatbread pizza.
I used a FlatOut healthy grain flatbread as the crust and topped it with marinara sauce, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella and shredded cheese. (This meal made me miss my family and our flatbread pizza competition… that I lost.)
I am particularly proud of the fresh basil you see on top of my pizza in the above picture. It’s from the basil plant we’ve had for a good three weeks.
Still living and thriving! That’s saying something since I basically have a black thumb when it comes to keeping foliage alive.
Perhaps I’m turning over a new leaf? (<— I love puns!)
That’s So Punny!
Speaking of puns, when I was in high school, my earth science teacher would award extra credit points to students who successfully came up with a pun in his class. It definitely kept the class engaged.
As an adult, I now realize that teacher was a genius! He kept the class hanging on his every word while also encouraging us to think and share our own creative puns with our classmates. By the end of the semester, our class was a big bunch of cheeseballs, dropping puns both inside the classroom and outside the classroom whenever we had a chance.
Every Friday, the same teacher would also read us a story from the Darwin Awards book he had on his desk. In case you’re not familiar with the Darwin Awards, they “commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chances of long-term survival.”
Let’s just say this teacher was quite a character and I always looked forward to his class every day.
