Monday, Monday...and a pizza

Remember the song Monday, Monday by The Mamas and the Papas?  Maybe you're not old enough? It came out in 1966 and although the group were not people I would exactly look up to, I did enjoy their blended voices.  People have different takes on just what the lyrics mean, I prefer to think of them as referring to that kind of yucky feeling you have when you know that the great weekend is over and having to start another work week. 

So much for my Monday, Monday.  I stayed home from work today with a nasty headache.  Will have to make up my time Thursday, no doubt.   I did manage to rally around and fix a pizza for supper.  We used to have these quite often when the kids were young and at home.  It's called Crazy Crust Pizza and if you haven't tried it before, I think you'll like it if you like pizza.   I meant to take a picture when I pulled the pan out of the oven, but's a not very good pic of a remaining piece.   The recipe follows.  

Crazy Crust Pizza

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano 
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup milk

 Toppings of choice

Pizza sauce (or use an 8 oz can of tomato sauce with
a 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning mixed in)
Mozzarella cheese (1 cup or more)

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Lightly grease a pizza pan or
baking sheet.
    2.  In a bowl, stir together first six ingredients and then mix in eggs
                  and milk, stirring well.  Pour batter into the prepared pan and tilt until 
                   evenly coated.  Arrange toppings of your choice (such as hamburger or
                        sausage already cooked and drained of grease, pepperoni slices, chopped
                    green bell pepper, chopped onion, sliced mushrooms, etc.) on top of the

3.  Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until crust is set.

                        4.  Remove from oven and drizzle on 1 cup pizza sauce and sprinkle with 1 cup 
                   (or more) of mozzarella cheese.  Return to oven and bake until cheese
is melted, about 10 minutes.  

Yesterday was my birthday.  Hubster took me to Columbia where we browsed an antique mall, ate a nice midday meal, and shopped for a few necessities before heading home.  It was another cloudy, gloomy day here in Missouri but still a nice birthday outing.  

Looked like the sun was trying to come out late in the day.   I saw a lone duck on the pond today, it looked mostly white.  The blasted muskrats were also out frolicking in the water today.  Hub needs to get some traps or just get the rifle out and go hunting!  They can do quite a bit of damage to your pond.  I enjoy looking out my kitchen window, there's always something interesting to see down at the pond and you never know what kind of animal you'll see going through the pasture.  The birds at the feeders are entertaining too.  We've had a pair of squirrels eating the cracked corn out of one of the feeders. 

Hope your Monday has been a good one.  

Until next time...
