Semi-Homemade Pizza!

I made this for supper last night and it turned out SOOO good that I just HAD to share! I was "scheduled" to cook Chili, but I had eaten chili Sunday for supper and Monday for lunch so I had the stuff in the fridge to make this pizza and decided to give it a try! Here's what I had:
1 can of Pillsbury Pizza Crust
1/2 pack of Hormel Pepperoni's
I think I used about 3/4 of a pack.
1/2 cup of Ragu Homemade Style Pizza Sauce

I spread the dough out on to a cookie sheet and pulled it in to a circle. I pressed all they way around the circle with my fingers to sorta create a crust on the oustide. I heavily sprinkled Garlic Salt all over the dough. Smoothed 1/2 cup of Pizza sauce on to dough. Covered in Cheese, Covered in Pepperonis and then layered some more cheese on top and baked it in the oven for about 10 mins at 425 degrees, then broiled it for about 2-3 minutes for the top to brown. I let it cool for about 5 minutes and then Cut in to that bad boy!! :) It was very good! I think Gregg liked it a lot too! I told him that next time I would probably add some bacon bits too! You can add whatever topping you would like! We are just pretty picky at our house! ;)

Chicken Bacon Cheese Casserole

After putting this on my menu this week, I have had SEVERAL people ask me for the recipe so I decided I would add it here! I don't usually have measurements for this stuff because I kinda created this recipe one night while "experimenting" so last night when I prepared this meal, I tried to keep up with about how much I used!
What you need:

1 can of crescent rolls

2 chicken Breasts, cut up into small pieces.

1 cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1/2 pack of Real Bacon Bacon Bits.

salt and pepper

1 tablespoon of butter

2 tablespoons of mayonaise
What you do:
Bring a pot of water to boil and add chicken. Cook for about 10-15 mintues or until all pieces are done. Meanwhile, Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray square baking dish with Pam and layer 1/2 pack of crescent rolls in the dish. Drain chicken and allow to cool just a little. Shred the chunks of chicken up and add salt and pepper(to liking) then add mayo, butter, cheese and bacon until well mixed. Pour on top of crescent rolls and level it across the top. Then add remaining crescent rolls over the top of the mix and bake for 15 minutes. I usually cut it in to about 6 pieces. It was enough for Gregg and I to eat and then Gregg took the rest with him to work today. So if you have a larger family, you may wanna double it up and use a bigger casserole dish.

Door Hanger

This is the new door hanger I made for my front door. It was SO easy and I am proud of how it turned out! I drew a "R" on a piece of tin and Gregg cut it out with some kind of plasma cutter thing! Then it was just some spray paint and I cut some black and white circles on my cricut, picked up some ribbon to hang it from and WALA!

Asparagus Bundles

I love Asparagus! Before you turn your nose up, have you ever even tried it? I think when most people her asparagus they automatically say no thanks, but haven't ever tried it! I don't know if it gets a bad wrap from tv shows or what, but try it before you knock it! Here are two different asparagus recipes to try.

First recipes. This came from Trisha Yearwood's Cookbook
You will need:

2 lbs. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slices bacon
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Divide the asparagus spears into 12 bundles. Carefully wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting about 1/2 in from the bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped spears with a toothpick. Lay the bundles i a low-sided casserole dish.
In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt, and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Pour the hot mixture over the asparagus bundles. Transfer the dish to the oven and roast for 25 minutes, or until the spears have begun to wilt and the bacon looks fully cooked. Remove toothpicks before serving.

*Note: If you just can't bring yourself to eat asparagus, you can use green beans for the top recipe!

Second Recipe.
You will need:
2 lbs. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place asparagus in baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Add as much Parmesan cheese as desired. Place in oven and cook for about 15 minutes. Turn asparagus and add more Parmesan cheese. Cook for 10-15 more minutes.
