It's Grammy Time!

Hola!  Happy Grammy Day!  I love the Grammy's and yes they are on my bucket list.   I am so pumped that Mr. Justin Timberlake himself will be there tonight...lovin' me a little Suit and Tie!  I am also hoping Mrs. Timberlake is there in a lovely dress!  Nashvegas is also representing! Go Country Music!!

I haven't had much time to blog lately, so I have been taking photos of things I want to blog about as a reminder!

I look forward to my breakfast everyday and I either have a protein shake or my favorite below...Greek Yogurt, Fresh Fruit, Granola and Walnuts!




I made this amazing Fig Pizza last week!  It was so amazing!!  It is sooooo easy to make!  I got the reciepe from the Food Network!  I didn't make my own dough however...Mr. Pillsbury from a can came through as always!  I also forgot to get the arugula...so I used spinach instead but I am sure arugula would of been so much better!



Ingredients
Pizza Crust:
1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Scant 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for bowl

]Topping:
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt
6 to 8 tablespoons fig spread or jam
12 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced thin
Freshly ground black pepper
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
1 bunch washed and rinsed arugula
1 cup shaved Parmesan


Directions
For the crust: Sprinkle the yeast over 3/4 cup warm (not lukewarm) water in a bowl.

In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add the flour and salt and, with the mixer running on low speed, drizzle in the olive oil. Keep going until it's mixed through. Next, pour in the yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.

Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, tip the dough in and form it into a ball. Toss to coat the dough ball in the olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for at least an hour, or up to 3 or 4 days.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Arrange the oven rack in the lowest position.

For the topping: Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface as thinly as possible Dough should be roughly 17 by 10 inches. Place on a large baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with the olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Spread the fig spread all over the surface of the dough. Lay the slices of mozzarella all over the surface of the pizza crust. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake the pizza until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly, 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and immediately drape the prosciutto slices over the hot pizza. Sprinkle generously with the arugula and Parmesan shavings. Cut into wedges or squares and serve immediately!



I promised some playlists last time I blogged!  First off, if you don't have Spotify...you need to download it!  It is free on your computer or you can pay $9.99 a month to get it on your phone and computer!  It is so worth it!!   Here are a few of my favorite playlists!  Feel free to follow them!


Happy almost Monday!
