55 Things # 31 – Flying High

We have had some visitors bring their drones to the farm this year so I thought I would share some aerial views of our farm.

The first three pictures were taken in the spring. The leaves were not yet on the trees but the forsythia was in bloom. Notice in these first pictures how you can see the shape of the earth. I think that is so cool.

This is our back field. Our property ends just before the neighbors’ pond.

This is the front of our property. Our driveway and the road form the T.

The next three pictures were taken last weekend.

The trees are all leafed out.

I like the reflection of the clouds in the pond.

The prayer garden from above.

Thank You for flying with us. 🙂 Have a great day.

55 Things #30 – A Summer Recipe

We have cucumbers coming in fast and furious so it is the perfect time of year to enjoy a cucumber salad with very fresh ingredients.

To make my cucumber salad I simply peeled and sliced three cucumbers and dressed them with my Garlic Dill Dip (recipe below). For three cucumbers I cut the dip recipe down by half.

Garlic Dill Dip – 1 pint of sour cream (you can use low fat or whatever you prefer) add several cloves of fresh, minced garlic, 1 or 2 tbsp. of dill either fresh of dried, and about a tsp. of sea salt. Mix all ingredients well. It can be eaten immediately, but the flavor improves if it sits for at least 15 minutes before eating. (I love this for potato chips, Fritos, or as a veggie dip.)

Enjoy!

What is your favorite way to eat cucumbers?

55 Things # 29 – If This Is The Worst Thing That Happens…

It’s so easy to let little things that happen stress us out, put us in a bad mood and even ruin our entire day. My husband and I often use the phrase “If this is the worst thing that happens today…” to overcome this by reminding us that life is good and that we are truly blessed.

We have a few different ways that we might finish the sentence.

They are:

If this is the worst thing that happens today then life is good!

If this is the worst thing that happens today then we are blessed!

If this is the worst thing that happens today then Praise God!

Thanks for reading and remember gratitude will change your attitude. 🙂

55 Things # 28 – Easy Pizza Recipe

Click here to learn more about my “55 Things” and here to view previous posts in this series.

Like most people my husband and I enjoy a good pizza, but I have found making homemade pizza that we like to be a challenge. I have yet to master making a good pizza crust and most of the store bought crusts that we have tried just aren’t that good. The exception is BOBOLi pizza crust. Not only does the BOBOLi make a decent pizza it is super easy to use. 🙂

Here’s my recipe.

Ingredients:

BOBOLi Pizza Crust

Pizza sauce

Olive Oil

Garlic (powder, granules or minced)

Oregano Leaves (dried or fresh)

Pepperoni Slices

Artichoke Hearts quartered

Mushrooms sliced (Canned or fresh)

Mozzarella Cheese Shredded

Instructions:

Preheat oven ( I think the crust package says 400 degrees)

Place crust on baking sheet.

Brush crust with a light layer of olive oil.

Sprinkle with garlic and oregano leaves.

Top with a layer of cheese.

Add pepperoni.

Add mushrooms.

Add artichoke hearts.

Add pizza sauce by dropping spoonful’s of sauce over the pizza.

Top with a layer of cheese.

Bake 10-15 minutes.

ENJOY! 🙂
