Homemade Pizza, Curbside Christmas Tree, Etsy sale :-)

Good afternoon Folks ~ It is Tuesday, partly cloudy, 83 degrees, but feels like it is 89, which is much cooler than it has been. There is a chance of rain. We did our errands this morning, had lunch, now I feel like a nap.

Last night I made homemade pizza for supper. We have half of it left for another night. I use my bread machine to make the dough for the crust. Two Italian sausage links are browned, broken into small pieces, sauce is 1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, chopped onion and garlic browned in a bit of olive oil. Last night I added some chopped kale to the mix. I also used chopped fresh basil and Italian seasoning and let the sauce simmer for awhile.

Here are pictures. We love homemade pizza.

I add dried Italian seasoning, and garlic powder to the flour mixture for the crust.

On the way home from doing errands this morning we stopped to look at some things curbside. While DH (dear husband) was across the street looking there, I saw in the review mirror the stuff behind me and spied a section of Christmas tree. I am a sucker for Christmas trees. I got out and walked back to look and it was a whole cute little funky Christmas tree and I had to take it.  It was calling me. Smile The trunk and the stand are made out of pine limbs, really neat. I’ve never seen one like it.  It’s sort of primitive. Anyway, it will be stored in the attic with the others.

This morning I found out I had another sale on Etsy. A nice way to start today.

This is the miniature piece that sold.

Congratulations on the sale. Wish I had your heat because that would mean more summer. We are full-on into Fall and Winter could come tomorrow or in 6 weeks. We never know. I like the little tree as well.

I LOVE the look of your pizza! We like to make pizza at our place too. I used to make the dough when I had more time, but we generally just use the pita bread for bases. Windy here today

That will make a cute tree for a porch decoration; a great find. Pizza looks inspiring and yummy! I'm in denial that summer is about over as my pepper plants need more time to grow. Have a blessed week.

What a great idea to use your bread machine to make the dough. Never thought of that!

Your sweet little tree brought a big smile as I looked at it. Kinda Charlie Brownish. I can almost smell your yummy looking pizza. And congrats on selling your darling little house piece on Etsy.
Have a lovely day.
