THE MISSION

Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.
Please email me if you feel led to
Please comment so we know what you need
Please tell your story

Show and Tell -- Drawing a Blank

For once I truly have no idea what to show. Perhaps that is why I inadvertanly hit the publish button on this post when I had yet to type even one letter.
So, after a random, almost desperate search through my photos I have come up with this.

Our first homemade pizza night evah...down to the tomato sauce baby!

Ready for the Step by Step?
1. Prep the Gluten Free Dough. Let it Rise.
2. Make the Regular Gluten Dough...IN THE BREADMAKER!!! (Yet another astounding use for this yard sale kitchen gadget!)

3. Whip up homemade pizza sauce with the help of Dr. Google and his team of recipe posters.
4. 2 DONE Pizzas! One Gluten...the other Gluten free!



5. And then, create the masterpiece. A garlic, pesto, chicken, ricotta, motz and fresh tomato delight!
RAW
COOKED

Mmmmmm...it was so good. I think another pizza night is in order soon!
Ok, lesson learned. Sometimes drawing a blank can lead you to remembering something very worthwhile!
Now...go see what everyone else is showing and telling...and learning!

I love homemade pizza, but I cheat and use premade crusts. (Sigh) one day...

Kymberli said...

My low-carb dieting would be thrown right out the window if I had those pizzas in my face. Yum.

Those look delicious!

We almost had homemade pizza tonight, but a neighbor invited us over for steak.

How did the gluten-free pizza come out? Can you share the dough recipe? I have a gluten-free friend who hosts a potluck every week and it's always nice to bring something she can eat.
