Friday Night Deep Dish Un-Pizza .. and ramblings

Let me start by saying I forgot to take a picture!  But seriously this was a good one!


1 head cauliflower, par boiled and cut         up in bite-sized pieces
I jar low or zero sugar marinara
1 can black olives
1 can sliced mushrooms
15 pieces sliced pepperoni
1 # browned, drained, crumbled.                       breakfast sausage
2 to 3 c. shredded mozarella cheese

Spray oil a 9 x 13" pan and layer ingredients on top of cauliflower. Top with cheese. Bake at 350° until brown and bubbly. It will have a lot of juice but as it cools, that absorbs. If you like cold pizza, you'll like this cold the next day, too. 

We finally got some dark, October days.  Rain and storms slouched across the Prairie yesterday and today. We've been busy with all kinds of this and that.  My son's big project outside of work was to nail down what is wrong with his pickup Vista roof... not good! It's a defect, broken, not insurance covered, not home fixable.... $2200 for the part. He is lucky that he can't see any water inside the cab... but?  Ugh.. The service techies told him to park it under a tree and hope for a wind storm... Well, both our vehicles are always parked.....Under a tree. But guess which one would Probably get boinked. Yep.  It would likely be mine since I just paid the darn thing off! 

Have a good week.

Sympathizing with your car problems. After considering the cost of a few repairs that were mounting up on my 11 year old Cobalt, I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for car payments on a new vehicle. The sting wasn't as bad as it could have been because I had been saving a good sized down payment.

Two weeks later my husband's truck (okay it was 17 years old) just collapsed. What could have been a few thousand in repairs got worse the more the issues were looked into. So now we are making a second vehicle payment.

Unfortunately with vehicles those ages, I just didn't want to invest money in sinking ships. If the stinking truck had gone first, I would still be struggling with the power windows and locks that only worked on a whim and fixed the very necessary items only on my vehicle.
