Camel Rides and Crazy Crust Pizza

It is the end of the year and I am waxing nostalgic. I have had a list of things I want to do for many years and one by one, I have done many of those things and marked them off of my list. So tonight I was wondering what all my friends have done in their lives. I have marked in RED the things I have done and the things I still have to do. The truth is there are more than are on this list, but the undone things are in BLUE.

Today was a lazy day, I lounged around in my nightgown all day and did tons of paperwork. That may not sound too exciting, but to me it is a blessing to get it done and out of the way. Now I just have to file it.

Evening arrived, the turkey leftovers are all gone and it was time to fix something for dinner. I made a "Crazy Crust Pizza". For those who have never made this kind of pizza, it is quick and easy!


1 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 eggs
2/3 c. milk

Mix together and pour into a greased and floured 15 x 10 inch pan. If you like a crispy crust try using cornmeal instead of flour. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes in the oven, take the crust out and fill it with your favorite ingredients.

Top with:
1 can pizza sauce
1 can artichokes
1 1/2 c. grated Mozzarella cheese
1 lbs. browned hamburger
1/4 c. chopped onions
1/4 cup tomatoes
16 black or green olives
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

Bake at 375 degrees for another 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Wow! That's an impressive list of things achieved. I noticed you were following my blog and popped over to visit - I've spent ages reading yours - what an interesting life you lead (and I love the look of some of those recipes!) I'l definitely be popping back to see what you've been up to (and whether you've completed any more of those "achievements")!
