I have been experimenting with other breadstick recipes. The Almost Fazoli’s breadsticks are great but I found a quicker recipe. Actually it’s a pizza great pizza crust recipe with a few modifications.
The pizza crust.
1 1/4 cup warm water
2 tsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/4 cup flour.
When making the pizza I spread on buttered pan, add desired toppings and bake at 425 for about 12 minuets.
When making breadsticks I replace 1/4 cup water with milk, and add 2 tbsp. butter. After shaping breadsticks I brush melted butter and add garlic bread sprinkle. Bake at 425 about 10 minuets. Once baked they freeze great, which is good because it makes enough for 2 meals for the family (or 1 for the family and a few lunches for me while the kids are at school) the reheat instuctions are the same as the baking inscructions.
Actually the ones in the picture were just taken out of the freezer. I stored them in a freezer bag with as much air pushed out as possible. They were in the freezer about a month.
Every zombie bride needs a veil right? Well mine thinks she does! LOL. I originally wanted to make it with a hair comb but they don’t stay in her hair very well. So I got a pack of head bands at dollar tree. I got the tulle with a 50% off coupon too.
I hand gathered the tulle and sewed it onto the headband using 1 continuous thread. I ripped a few spots and burned a few. (carefully of course) Then dripped the fabric paint to look like blood.
With they way it is sewn on I will be able to remove it after Halloween if I want to.

Since my daughter is going to be a zombie bride for Halloween I have been looking for ideas for makeup. I picked up the cheapest set that the department store had in the Halloween section. I think I can re-create this look with my makeup/and a few of the less expensive drugstore/department store brands. (and by my makeup I am only referring to blush)
With my daughter having multiple teachers now and my son having the same teacher he had last year (she switched grades and is also a teacher my daughter had) Christmas gifts for the teachers might be tricky. The year my daughter had the teacher I did ornaments and last year I did sharpie mugs. I don’t want a repeat, at least not an exact one.
I came across this, it would be inexpensive. If I do this one I could possibly get all I need out of 1 or 2 rolls of ribbon.
But I do have a concern would this be considered too religious?
When making pie crust what does one do when they don’t have a pastry blender? Many people would say fork. Not me. I say potato masher.
In fact it worked really well! Better than a pasty blender in my opinion.
I didn’t take pictures of the prep or baking process (other than the one above) but The pies turned out great!
Since my dogs are both using collars from a previous dog we had I thought it was time to get them their own. One of them happens to have a stamped take riveted to the collar. I prefer this over my other dog with one that slides over the collar or the kind that hang jingling. (I am always afraid they will get caught) Since I couldn’t find them locally and anything I could find online was extremely pricey I looked into stuff to make my own. While it was pricier than 2 tags. We will get to make 25, and the stamps can be used for other things.
Hopefully we can get it done tonight!
I won’t be showing any tags made for the sake or privacy, however IF I make something other than pet tags with this I will certainly show it.
Stay tuned (next week) for a smoked pumpkin pie! I smoked it with my husband’s help (he set it up) and it smells really good now that it is roasted.
After getting my universal pen holder the art box that I was using isn’t big enough anymore. So I got another larger one. It was just under $2.
I also got some fine point sharpies. Now I just need to figure out how to get my mat a little less sticky. (because the Tack it over and over method is too sticky for paper) and get making cards. I will probably make Christmas cards and a few birthday cards. (I have to test the pen holder somehow)
