New Quilt and Pesto Tomato Pizza

It was such a nice day. I have grown to really appreciate the weekends. I cleaned a little bit this morning.  Mostly the utility room.

Larry was replacing a part on the car. And I had to help him. (Well, I actually just held the light and he probably didn't need (or want) my help. lol That took most of the day.

I decided to make a pesto tomato pizza for dinner tonight. We have had it twice before and really enjoyed it so I took a stab at it. And, it did turn out really good.

The only pesto I could find was a dry mix to mix with olive oil. I wasn't sure how much to use and will use a little more next time. I also forgot to get mozzarella cheese, so I used Provolone cheese. It was good but doesn't quite have the stringy goodness of mozarella.

Yummy goodness, just fresh from the oven. Becca told me where to look for Pesto in a jar, so hopefully I will find some. I think it will have a little more flavor than the powder. The recipe I used was from Pioneer Women.

I sat down this evening and cut all of the triangles I need for the quilt I am starting.

I have all the fabric I need and hopefully will be able to sit down and get them all sewed together tomorrow. This is the quilt I decided to start on first. It will go on one of the kids beds.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. You are braver than me...I have such a difficult time with triangles I try hard not to use them! :). Blessings, Marlene

  2. That is one of our favorite pizza combos!!! I used to make our pesto (and that's still the best!) but the jarred stuff isn't bad!! I use both mozzarella and provolone (and sometimes splurge with sticks of string cheese rolled into the edges of the crust...YUM!!!
