St. Patty’s Day Pizza

Ok this is  a few days old, obviously St. Patrick’s Day was last Wednesday. originally I was planning on looking up something Irish to make for dinner, but that would have entailed going to the grocery store and buying more food, and that is NOT in the budget. So I decided if I couldn’t be IRISH it could at least be GREEN!

I whipped up this MEAN LEAN GREEN Pizza last-minute and it was SUPERB! The whole time we were eating it Mr. Gaunt and I kept saying things like “God I love Kale” and “How did we go so long without eating all these veggies” and “This might the best Pizza yet!” It was quite lovely.

Ok so this Pizza is a Whole Wheat crust from Whole Foods (comes in a two pack and it is by far the cheapest and best crust) with olive oil and garlic brushed over it. Then comes a layer of VERY thinly slice turkey sausage. After that is Onions, Kale, Broccoli and Mushrooms. I sprinkled a little more olive oil on top, topped with Mozzarella Cheese and a few dollops of Cream Cheese.  Bake per crust instructions.

The Kale gets all crispy and yummy (which only makes me more excited to make Kale Chips) and the light olive oil sauce is really just perfect. I would absolutely make this again, and it was MAJOR GREEN! Yay no pinches for the food!

Today we are going to brunch for Ms. G’s Birthday at Fresh Fish Co. We were suppose to go Friday night but it snowed a ton. Today however it is a lovely 50-60 degrees and I will be wearing this adorable wool pleated bubble skirt (with pockets)I got at the Gap a few weeks ago for $8.99!

I also got these cute Sailor style Button up the sides dress pants ($6.99) and a Bubble Shift Dress ($3.99). Sorry for the nasty face and hair, this was when I was super sick.

Birthday Outfit Shopping!

Mr. Gaunt’s birthday is the 28th of this month, he’s going to be 29! Woohoo the last year in his twenties! Anyways we havent decided what we are actually doing on his birthday, but tomorrow we are going out to dinner with Pro and her boyfriend Jaques (whoes birthday was this past week) and we needed new outfits! Ha! I always need a new outfit! Mr. Gaunt though is down to 250lb (he started at about 312) and his once 46″ pants are long gone and 38″ pants are in! Im so proud of him he just looks so freaking fantastic!

We watched yesterday’s Oprah with Tim Gunn (the love of my life) on how men should dress, which I think inspired Mr. Gaunt to ditch the oversized grubby duds with some nice fitting stylish ones. So because we are always thrifty we hit up Target and Burlington Coat Factory (which we just discovered, million of jeans all $14-$25!) here’s what we got:


The shirt was purchased, the hat was just for show. Yes I know he is darn adorable!

I bought him this as an early birthday gift. Ignore the frown he really does love it.

New 7 jeans! He got two other pairs that fit nicely.

Interesting, but not the one.

would have been cute in two sizes smaller.

We have a winner! super fun and cute, please ignore the fact that it looks like Im picking a wedgie. Oh and it was only $10!
