My Top Ten Tuesday Collection

I have written about a variety of topics, for Top Ten Tuesday, over the course of this year and I thought it would be fun to revisit them.

  6. 10 Ideas For Stretching Your Large Family Food Dollars – These ideas might come in handy as you start the new year and recover from any Christmas over spending (you didn’t do that, right?).
  7. Top Ten Ways The iPad Has Changed Our Homeschooling – The uses for the iPad in a homeschool setting are limited only by your imagination and creativity.
  8. Top 10 Books For Parents Of Boys (and the next 40) – Are you the parent one or more boys? Are you looking for some good books to read? Check out this list.
  9. Ten Special Needs Books That I Have Read – These books were all very useful to us in our journey with a child with autism.
  10. Ten Special Needs Books That I Want To Read – Why is it that I never have enough time to catch up on my reading? (Okay, don’t answer that please.)

Homeschool Mother’s Journal

In my life this week…

My week has been full of snuggles and hugs and kisses from kids with coughs and sniffles.

In our homeschool this week…

We are plugging along with our curriculum. I have already made my list for next year and big changes are coming. I am so excited.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

My niece had a birthday and we had the big family party at our house. There were six adults and nine children eleven and under. It was crazy. It was loud.

My hubby made four large homemade pizzas. They were so good.

I made a double layer chocolate cake (it was really good) using my eggless diaryless cake recipe.

Hosanna thought it was really good.

Right down to the last lick.

I made a fun creative writing journal for my niece. She loved it.

My favorite thing this week was…

Zion (2 years old) clasping his hands together and begging me to use my new mop to wash the hall floor. Isn’t this every mother’s dream?

What is working/not working for us…

Being adaptable is working for us. You can read more about that here.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I am trying to think outside of the box for Elisha for next year. He will be using Teaching Textbooks, and taking some on-line courses. Do you have any other creative ideas for me?

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

There is a chocolate theme happening at our house.

My Top Ten Ways To Make Pizza That Isn’t Pizza

Fabulous pizza from my niece's birthday.

This post is going to be incredibly delicious. I have been thinking about pizza. Not just ordinary pizza, but homemade pizza. You have made pizza from scratch, right? It’s easy. Okay, my husband makes it look easy. Let me tell you, he makes the absolute best pizza in the world.

We have leftover pizza fixings from my niece’s birthday party on Friday. I have been thinking about all the different ways we can make pizza without really making pizza.  We have tried a few of these and the rest, I am drooling over and can’t wait to try.

  1. Pizza Pretzels – We made these ourselves, but you can see a recipe and pictures for pizza pretzels here.
  2. Pizza Rolls – I can’t wait to try pizza rolls. Here is one great way to make pizza rolls.
  3. Pizza Bread – We have made pizza bread by putting sauce on bread and adding meat and cheese on top. There are other ways to make pizza bread.
  4. Mini Pizzas – These are great to make if no one can agree on toppings.
  5. Pizza Bites – Check out these fun pizza bites.
  6. Calzones – We have made these before, but it has been a very long time. I think we need to make these again. Check out this awesome resource for making Calzones.
  7. Stuffed Pizza – The first time I heard about stuffed pizza, it was only the crust. These stuffed pizzas look easy enough to make.
  8. Pizza Casserole – We have made this fun dish a few times over the last 12 years. We line the bottom of our glass cake pan with oil, cornmeal, biscuit dough and then add oil, sauce, and toppings. This is really yummy.
  9. Pizza Pinwheels – When you look up pizza pinwheels, you might find these or these.
  10. Dessert Pizza – I am sure we have all heard of these. There are the peach ones and the chocolate ones. The possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to try these just for fun sometime.
