A New Beginning

Good morning everyone! I finally feel like my life is back in order, and everything is going the way it should be.

The wedding..
Once upon a time a boy met a girl, and they fell in love. We were married on August 13, 2011 and it was a beautiful day. It was warm, sunny, full of laughter, good times, and we got some amazing memories. I couldn't be happier!

The honeymoon..
Two days after the wedding, we were swept away to Elk Ridge Resort for a total of four days. It was relaxing, and we slept probably 75% of the time. Which means we probably needed it. I enjoyed the spa day, the mud wrap, the massage, and the facial. The walks, the food, the drinks, everything was absolutely amazing.

Back to reality..
We've been busy the past couple weeks. Harvest started the day we got back. And Daniel has been busy with that. I went back to work on Monday the 22nd, and have been busy with the new crop year ever sicne. We were supposed to get 40mm of rain last night and I was hoping for some down time with my new hubby but we didn't get any moisture at all! I'm not sure how the weatherman can be that out!

We've also decided we wanted to start trying for a baby. I've kicked myself into full gear in getting healthy again, and eating right. I've bought the "What to Expect When Your Expecting" book, and have been doing some research. I made a doctor appointment next week to go over a couple things regarding getting pregnant and for a physical. So thats my exciting news for today! I probably sound like I'm being anal about the whole thing, but like I told Daniel, I'm the one that has to carry this baby in my tummy for 9 months and I want to be ready to do that, and in tip top shape!

Anyway, back to work for me.. ta ta for now!

Barbequed Chicken Pizza Braid

I seen this posted of foodgawker the other day. Of course, as I was making it up, I forget to add the cheese so I sprinkled it on top. Definitely should have been inside, and because we have a hard time controlling the temperature of our old BBQ, the pizza dough was burnt on the bottom and not cooked on top. Maybe I should have waited for our new BBQ to show up! Definitely was super yummy though!


Barbequed Chicken Pizza Braid
Serves 2

1 can pizza dough
2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
1 whole yellow pepper
1 cup bbq sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat the bbq to 400 degrees.

Roll the dough into about an 11X17-inch rectangle.

Using a knife, cut 1-inch wide strips in towards the center, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 3 inches wide down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Spread half of the barbecue sauce down the center strip. Top with the chicken, peppers and cheese. Fold the side strips over filling, alternating strips from each side and pressing them into the dough on the opposite side, forming a braid. Pinch or twist to seal.

Transfer to a grill safe baking sheet and let rest for 15 minutes.

Bake the braid for 15-20 minutes , until golden brown and bread is baked through.

Let the braidsrest for 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut braid into sections and serve warm.
