My first quilted purse

I made a quilted purse/ bag for my mommy dearest. I quilted the whole thing then constructed it all. It's pretty simple, but that is how mommy wants it. Here are some pictures and a small tute will follow soon! Enjoy reading and viewing.

Tonights dinner....chicken pizza

Our old neighbor gave me a recipe for her homemade pizza dough about a year ago, and we eat homemade pizza on a weekly/biweekly basis. (so delicious but not so good for my "muffin top". I really like experimenting with different toppings and tonight was no exception.
On the pizza was...
2 boneless skinless chicken breast (cooked and shredded or chopped)
1/2 can artichokes chopped and drained
1 large handful of fresh spinach, chopped
1 bunch of basil chopped finely
Handful of mushrooms (your choice)
3tablespoons of philly cooking creams in 'italian herb and cheese'
6-8 oz of shredded mozzarella
Crumbled bacon ( bc everything tastes better with bacon)
1 pizza crust homemade or store bought (homemade recipe to follow)

Ours was also stuffed with cheese sticks and a garlic-butter-parmesan sauce around the crust.

Bon appetit'!
