Eric was working on putting up more siding again this weekend. He was doing the portion right outside the kitchen window. I was inside cooking dinner when he yelled, “there’s a hummingbird stuck in the skylight!!!” So you just know I grabbed the camera and ran out there! Dang thing moves too fast to get a picture tho. That and the sun was already going down, so the light was no good. Here he is though – poor Hummy. Don’t worry – Eric saved him. He shoo-d him down with a broom and Hummy flew on home.
Well, like I said in my last post with pizza in it, I have been wanting to attempt pizza dough for awhile now. Yesterday was that day. My assistant and I got out all the ingredients and got to work. The book said to hand knead it for 10 minutes. Pish posh. Not when you have a Kitchenaid Mixer! Silly book! So we stuck the hook on and put her to work. We were making a thick crust that can also be used for calzones.Well, my assistant should be fired because he didn’t notice that I was using whole wheat PASTRY flour instead of plain whole wheat flour. Dang it Dylan! Pay attention! It really wasn’t too bad. I mean, it wasn’t awesome by any means, but it wasn’t inedible! But then again, what pizza isn’t inedible? Pizza is pizza and pizza is good. I have already set my sights on a different (and MUCH more complicated) recipe to try next time. I’m hoping it will be so awesome and my entire family will kiss the ground I walk on. HAHAHHAHAHAHHHA!!!!! Ok, so that won’t ever happen. I just hope that I can find a recipe that will become a Wikoff tradition that we love to make for special occasions and once a week. LOL! We love pizza. Can you tell? Ok, I love pizza. But the rest of my people do too, they just aren’t voicing it here. It looks really pretty though, right?
Well, Monday must now begin. I hear that both children are now UP. Later!
