I am in a very strange eating pattern.  I read somewhere that changes in appetite are normal with kidney patients, but this is a little nuts.

Every morning I eat an everything bagel with crunchy peanut butter on it.  I'm not sure when this started, but it is the only thing that really hits the spot once the newspaper has been read, the coffee has been slurped, and the Jumble and Sudoku have been solved.

Unless I'm out with my stitchy peeps, I don't really eat lunch, but at about 3 o'clock I find myself going face first into a little bowl of dip that I make with cream cheese, dried beef, green onions, and cheddar cheese.  I put little globs of it on Snyder's sourdough pretzels.

The pizza is where the wheels are coming off the bus, because I've been making bar-be-que chicken pizza for dinner every night for about a week. I use a Stonefire pizza crust and then put chicken, red onion, and garlic on top that I've browned and carmelized and then tossed with Sweet Baby Ray's sweet and spicy sauce.  A little mozzarella...bake at 400 degrees for 13 minutes, and then stand back.

Holey Schmoley....I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Vaceila has a partial wing.  I better get the other one on or she's just going to fly around in circles!

Stewey is hanging in there.  He had a good night sleep and is snoozing in the sun.  

Tomorrow we're going to try to get the house clean.  We got bills paid today and the dining room table cleaned off, so now it's time to move on to the rest of the house!

Happy Tuesday to you and yours...we're off like a herd of turtles!


  1. My favorite pizza ever! What is a Stonefire pizza crust?
    Sweet Stewey and you remain in my prayers and intentions, Coni.

  2. Vaceila looks fabulous, Coni. Stewey looks rather toasty in his snoozy area.

  3. Coni, can I come live with you? That menu is amazing!😀

  4. The pizza sounds great; I think I will try it. Glad Stewey is having good days.

  5. What a cutie! I see Stewey has his peanut butter snack close by....just in case he gets peckish. 😄

  6. Pizza sounds delicious. You Go, Girl! And little Stewey looks quite content and warm all cuddled up.

  7. Me too, herd of turtles that is. Can't seem to get much accomplished. I LOVE Vaceila's wings. I just can't get over how beautiful they are. Don't get me started on pizza. How I love it and how I can't eat it anymore. 'sob' Hugs and prayers to you and Stewey. Cathryn

  8. Now I am hungry :) Glad to see Stewey enjoying the sun <3 And Vaceila's wing is so beautiful!

  9. Vaceila is so beautiful and all that work and frogging! I love pizza, I could eat every day of the week but limit myself to just Sunday night. We started pizza on Sunday when we were watching all the old Perry Mason TV shows, love Raymond Burr. So it became pizza and Perry night. Finished Perry but the pizza remains. Husband not a big fan of pizza but who cares he can make himself something else if so inclined. He never does...

  10. Your pizza sounds wonderful!!

  11. Vaceila is just gorgeous. I love the hair and face changes. BBQ pizza sounds good!

  12. How secure and at peace is the place & life you provide for Stewey.... he looks so content.... wonder where he got the peanut butter habit? Vaceila is becoming your tour de force.....impeccable and compelling... could study
    it's intricacies and still find something new.....Brava ~
