I’ve been driving now for 22 years and for the first time ever, I pulled a complete “dumb blonde” moment and ran out of gas….right in front of the gas station!
I was so grateful when a tow truck stopped to help me. That is, until he found out I didn’t need a tow, just someone to help me push my car a few feet into the gas station. He then got in his truck, and pulled away!! Can you believe that?!?
Luckily, my kind, loving, understanding and forgiving husband showed up to rescue me from my own stupidity.


Pizza Bites

Not only is my hubby my Knight in Shining Armor, he is also a great hand model for my baked goods! These little gems were HUGE with my crew, especially with some of my jarred marinara from my garden to dip them in! I made a double batch and had to beat the kids off the last few so I could pack some in their lunches the next day.

Next time I make these, I want to include a chunk of mushroom as well. I also think these would be yummy dipped in some ranch dressing.
