A Good Day - and a Fabulous Pizza

As an At-Home-Mum I sometimes feel invisible.  That's why I 'get' this blogging thing.  When you have a trial, or a triumph, its nice to tell someone, its nice to share and feel seen.
  When I stood cold footed and foggy in my kitchen making toast, and tried to take a swig of coffee from the jam jar, I didn't know that today would be a Good Day.  We made muffins and decorated them in three shades of awful.  The spawn ate the icing off and left the rest on the barbeque.  We ran around a playground, we came home and watched some TV.  Pretty ordinary, but then, a day without tears (my own) is a good day, and I'm proud of the way I'm coping by myself.
   And then dinner, a TRIUMPH!
  I tried a new recipe for Pizza Crust with only four ingredients including beer.
I poked, punched and pushed it into a pizza tray.
Painted it with sauce, 
topped and baked it,
I was the only adult to eat it... and it was MARVELLOUS!

Easy Easy Pizza Crust (Thanks to
3 cups flour, 1 tbs baking powder, 1 355ml bottle of beer, 1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients well.  Turn out onto a floured surface and roll to your desired thickness.  Place on a greased tray.  Top with sauce and toppings and bake in a moderate oven until golden (about 30 mins).

Here's wishing you a Good Day too!  Oh, and leave me a comment so I know I've been seen!
