Give a Little Bit...

I am sure you all have heard of Green Your Decor and the wonderful new site Green and Gorgeous, run by the lovely Jennae Petersen.  She began her blogs for the simple reason to make the world a better, greener place. Now her world is in turmoil. Her adorable 4-year-old daughter, Ja'Naya has been diagnosed with leukemia. Her husband, John, recently lost his job and Jennae is self-employed. They have no health insurance.

Want to help them out? I did. Jenn, from Frugal Mom, started up a chip-in campaign. This is how I chose to pitch in, but there are other options; check out Ja'Naya's story and other ways to help out here.


Easy, Peazy Pizza Pie

Mister LOVES pizza. Here is an easy, quick "homemade" 3 Meat pizza recipe.

1 whole wheat thin crust
1 Boboli pre-packaged Original Pizza Sauce
1 package Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican shredded cheese
3 slices turkey bacon (I like Louis Rich)
1 1/3lb. preformed frozen beef patty (I get mine in a 6 lb. package from Costco)
1/2 package Hormel pepperoni

Pile it all on, stick it in the oven, YUM!

If you want to see the nutrition stats for this go to www.myfitnesspal.com. It's labeled Oonafey Home Made- Three Meat Pizza. The nutrition is specific the brands I have in the recipe.

You would think with a whole wheat crust, reduced fat cheese, and turkey bacon that it would be borderline healthy... It's really not. But it's good, and it's satisfying, and it's still better for you than take-out.
