a minute in the life: II

my submissions for the simultaneous photography project known as A Minute in the Life: II. My friend Lori encouraged the readers of her blog to participate. So I did.

I was at St. Vinnie's trying on my dollar clothing finds. I scored a red Caslon sweater, a turquoise Coldwater Creek ribbon yarn sweater, a pair of American Eagle khakis, a slinky black Michael Kors dress, and a pair of Christopher Blue jeans that fit perfectly.

We hit Shop for a Cause first, where the boys found nothing and subsequently sulked.

Next we pulled into the Humane Society Thrift Store, which I haven't visited in a long time. Historically I haven't found anything there.

Today we hit the treasure jackpot.

A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.

Of course E had them ordered in a matter of moments.

Finally we escaped the store with a trove of treasures (more than I've found in one place in …

You cook the crust first, at 425 or 450. I used a bag of Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower riced in the Cuisinart with a bag of Trader Joe's shredded mozzarella and as many eggs as needed to hold it together. Herbed it with some dried basil, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

Topped with a pound of browned hot Italian sausage and some shredded parmesan.

Bake til browned.

Scarfed it down, me and my hunny.
