National Pizza Month for the Happy Couple


Tell me. What could be better than a romantic lunch of pizza and a glass of wine? Answer: A happy couple celebrating their engagement with a view of the sea on a cool October day! Here are a few recipes to take your favorite pie into National Pizza Month.

Fall Pizza Recipes for You and Your Honey

This scrumptious recipe was discovered at Strawberry Blondie Kitchen. Apples, bacon and caramelized onions!

October – National Pizza Month must include Pumpkin!

Pumpkin Pizza

Love Lola has a delightful Fall Pizza recipe that, of course, includes pumpkin. She loves it so much her family has it more than once a week. If your kiddos like pumpkin, this would be a special tradition to start on Halloween night. A little pumpkin before they carry their little pumpkins trick or treating.

fall pizza recipe with figs

I must admit that as a child I hated figs. But my oh my! The combination of figs, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella that Rachael adds over at Spache the Spatula is one of the most unique flavors ever! Then the drizzle of Balsamic takes it to a whole new level!

Ok, so maybe you are more of a traditionalist with your pie. I’ve got you!

October National Pizza Month

So, I thought I would “wrap things up” with this scary little pizza…. get it? Mummy pizza… wrapped up? I crack me up.

Tipbuzz will have you in stitches. They’ve added little bandaids of pepperoni and a monstrous amount of cheese. And … oh! oh! oh!….wouldn’t it be a scream if you proposed with the ring falling out of this little mummy’s mouth? I kill me!

Your love will preserve this month as one of their favorites of the year with all of this attention to their comfort. And no matter what your favorite is, share it while enjoying a gorgeous view, a glass of Chianti and the laughter of your beloved.

Happy National Pizza Month Everyone!

Are You Dense?

Yes, I am dense. Unfortunately, I’ve been told this once a year for the last several years. Every August when I go in for a mammogram, I’m told that I have dense breasts. (I guess I should be glad they aren’t x-raying my brain!) Seriously though, this makes my risk of developing breast cancer 1.2 – 2% higher than women with less dense tissue. It is enough of a risk increase to make me pay attention.

I am so very thankful that breast cancer has not touched anyone in my family so far. I am counting my blessings, but we take nothing for granted. Annual checkups and self exams are a must! Have you had your mammogram this year?

Breast Cancer touches so many and has taken the lives of women younger than me, so in honor of all those affected, this 16th day of 31 Days of Decorating Tabletops, I present a table setting in pink. May God bless each and every one of you who have been touched in some way by this awful disease.

Are You Dense?

A cozy setting for two. Invite a survivor to celebrate and set a cheerful table.

finally, sisters...

This framed verse was a gift to me by my sweet friend, Caroline, after we studied Philippians 4:8 with a precious group of ladies.

Philippians 4:8

Finally sisters…The battle against breast cancer can produce very dark days. Thinking about anything praiseworthy might make them a little bit lighter.

bunnies in october

Bunnies and pink begonias aren’t just for Easter. As a symbol of new life and the promise that Spring will come, I pray God’s blessings on you all. I pray that you can see His light through the loss of hair, and experience His calm when your stomach rolls.

I pray for silver linings that take your breath away.

Begonias in October

I asked that He will show you blossoms in the winter.

Ladies, whether you are dense or not, don’t forget to get your check-up this year. Early detection is something praiseworthy.
