More Pizza and Ice Cream Porn

Today's lunch...


Shelly's Mushroom Pesto Tortilla Pizza - Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size Tortilla topped with Pesto Sauce, Provolone, Sauteed Mushrooms, Fresh Asiago and Italian Seasoning.

How to make them: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. I put 1 drop literally of olive oil on the cookie sheet and spread it around. Place tortilla on cookie sheet. Spread the sauce on the tortilla (pesto, marinara, alfredo, bruschetta sauce, whatever.) Put a slice of cheese on top of that and then any combination of toppings or leftovers I can find bumping around the fridge. Sprinkle with parmesan. Pop in oven. 10 minutes exactly. Have the oven hot before you do the toppings **Do not let them sit. Pop them in the oven right away or the toppings will make the tortilla soggy versus the yummy crispy porn pictured above.


and snack...


Shelly's Nutty Orange Protein Ice Cream

1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Coconut)
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Coconut, toasted
1 Tablespoon Macadamia Nuts, chopped
1 Tablespoon SF Orange Marmalade (I used Smucker's Simply Fruit)

Mix together milk, protein, syrup & coconut. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add the nuts and marmalade. You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to put it in the freezer to set for an hour.


I went to the Farmer's Market this morning and was bummed because the Kyoto Grapes people weren't there... they said this week might be the last week for them I guess they just didn't have enough to bother setting up. I bought a bunch of pink lady apples. I'm going to make those little Apple Crumbs I make this week... Mmmm warm Apple Crumb and Cinnamon Protein Ice Cream.

After the FM I went for a long walk. I wanted to get any exercise or movement out of the way earlier... it's been nasty muggy (so not SoCal weather.)

Hope your long weekend (if you get one) is wonderful!


Highlights of the day:

* Pizza and Ice Cream... of course ;)

* Going to have a glass of wine under my electric stars tonight. So I apologize in advance if I drunk text or call any of you.

* Went to coffee this morning and flirted with a total hottie. He looked like a rock star. Soooo out of my league but it was fun.

Listening to: "This Town" O.A.R. Speaking of hottie rock stars... Mmmm Marc Roberge.

Hi Shelly- I read your blog EVERY day- just love it!!! I have never written, until today. Your comment made me angry!! "OUT OF MY LEAGUE"!!!! Nobody is out of your league unless you say they are. Expect the best, and you will attract the best. Expect less and well.........
No matter what people look like, everybody has a background, baggage and a story- even the "pretty people". You are as worthy as anyone else. If another "hottie" starts flirting.................get his phone #!!!! :)
Thanks for the blog and all the great tips and recipes.
HUGS- Carmen

I also read every day (love your site), have never posted, and think your "out of my league" comment was from another planet. Don't you know how cool you are?

I have to agree with the group - you are attractive and a hottie yourself - be aggressive and keep on flirting - mr. "right" is just around the corner!!

Also - re: your pizza - I make them on my outdoor grill - they get real crispy and are so fast - even hubby likes them!
