Cooking Adventures: Zucchini Pizza Bites

So, I tried to make this:

(Recipe Here)

I modified the toppings and used mushrooms instead of peps but it was basically the same process. This is what they look like in reality. The first round, I forgot the sauce. This is round two:

Despite the disaster zone on the cookie sheet, they were actually pretty good and a nice pizza-ish treat while trying to lose weight. I think kids would approve. Much better for you than bagel bites. Prep time – 10 min? Bake time 10-15 total? I preferred them a little crunchy which means cook them less.

Stress

It has been a very stressful two weeks.

Stressful things:

  • Truck had mechanical failures that were going to cost me more than I was willing to put into an old rusty truck…

  • Decided that the truck, “Flanders,” had to go and began the selling process through Craigslist, Facebook Groups, and the old fashioned for sale sign in a parking lot route…***Sale Pending***
  • Financed a hybrid vehicle – “Zoe”…my brake score is 97%

  • Panicked about Zoe’s car payments tacked on to existing monthly bills…
  • Spouse wants to pay $40 more a month than the payment actually is…silent tears…
  • Found out at work that 2 months of work would be flushed down the toilet because others did not do their part of the project….

  • Found out that another 3 weeks of work would be flushed because an entirely separate department did the exact same thing…

  • Was told that the original project deadline was in 10 days for phase one and in 4 weeks for phase 2…
  • Was told to recreate/fix project by these original deadlines…the same project that took me 3 months combined to do…

  • Spent the week driving approx. 200 miles around the metro area acquiring birthday gifts and anniversary surprises…

  • Accidentally got a pen mark on my degree frame while trying to center the diploma in the frame…FML. The thing was like $200.
  • Spouse says they would like to apply for a fellowship in Switzerland…and that it is the most important thing they have ever considered doing…an amazing opportunity…it would last a year…and that the president of the school is vetting them…
  • Massive argument with spouse regarding the truck, Switzerland, dishes, laundry, cooking, shopping, money, and the way pizza should be stored…

  • Colleague changes their mind 4 times in 3 days causing me to do excess work for them 4 times…
  • The house is not clean…
  • I spray painted a spider….because that was all I could do at the time…
  • My shoulder is aching (Level 6) and I wonder if its stress induced. The Theracane and tennis ball is not cutting it. Luckily I agreed to be a massage therapy patient for a class project for one of our students and treatment starts this week! (Have I mentioned I work at a college? I don’t remember)
  • I left my FitBit at home Friday…
  • I ate Applebees chicken strips, fries, a pint of ice cream, a donut, and 2 Pepsi’s… on Friday…because the FitBit didn’t tell me I couldn’t…
  • I accidentally forgot to meet up with my uncle who let me know he was in town for a few days…totally blanked…
  • I did not plan for food for the week and now I have no idea what I am doing…

Now….

I need to figure out how to relieve the stress and get some peace in my life. I haven’t taken a nice photo in a week! The comment box is open for business…
