Win Some, Lose Some

I may never buy pizza again.  For a lark (and because I didn't know what I was doing in the first place), I added garlic powder and an Italian herb mix to the crust ingredients; that's a winner!  The recipe made enough crust for two pizzas, but it evidently freezes well so I won't overdose for days.  Hot from the oven, the sliced mozzarella was yummy, but next time I do believe I'll grate the cheese on top.

While searching in the barn for the pizza stone(s) I was sure I had but couldn't find, I did discover another madeleine cookie pan.  Did I mention that Steve was deserving of a bumper sticker that said, "I brake for yard sales!"?  I've had the gently-used pans for years but have never made the cookies.  Uncovering this treasure may just be the impetus I need.

Continuing what is turning out to be The NeverEnding Story, I did go downstairs during halftime and I was successful in recharging the battery.  That was a good thing.  I did drill one more hole (a good thing) before the bit broke on the second (not so good).  I'm still determined to finish this project, but must admit my enthusiasm has waned.

Regardless of your team affiliation, yesterday's Super Bowl was a tight, edge-of-your-seat game up to and including the last few seconds.  Being a New England Patriots fan, I groaned and thought all was lost, and then Ta Da!  That unreal save earlier by Jermaine Kearse will have football players shaking their heads for years.

Stepping out last evening, I was stunned once again by the sunset and stopped to take this shot.
On the way back up from the goat barn, a matter of minutes, the sky had completely changed, ergo, another photo.
After tucking the chickens in for the night, I turned to look for Bessie Anne and discovered an entirely different view.  Each, in my opinion, is a winner.

It was a good day.

Well, you may be a loser with drill bits, but not with sunsets. And you definitely earn the "winner, winner pizza dinner" prize. Yum!
