I love veggie pizza as it combines all of my favorite
things: cheese, ranch dressing, crescent rolls, and veggies!
I lived off of this after Monkey was born and made it a
few weeks ago so I’d have something for lunch at work. However I ate half of it
before I even made it to a work day. This is half of a regular recipe and can
easily be doubled if you are making it for more than 2 (or in my house, more
than just me).
Please forgive me, this photo is ridiculously bad.

½ cup sour
cream or mayonnaise (really doesn’t matter)

He’s 70 years old (born on our anniversary – the date not the year) and has been a Cardinal since February 21,
2001.He currently serves as
Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Side Note: Big Red,
wasn’t Maria from Honduras?!
And now for some Catholic stories (the good one is at
:: I went to Catholic school for kindergarten and 8th
grade (because FCA did not have a basketball team that year and I really want
to play sit on the bench and score lots of 2 points).
:: My other mother and best friend (two different
people) are Catholic.
:: One of our guilty pleasure movies is EuroTrip and one of my favorite scenes is the one that takes
place in the Vatican.
:: My Cultural Anthropology Professor’s wife was
Catholic and went to see Pope John Paul II lying in state in Rome.
:: C and I used to go to Mass in Chicago when we missed
church on Sunday mornings (or wanted to go on Saturday nights) because (in my
opinion) Lutherans and Catholics are very similar.
:: While Pope John Paul II was dying I skipped my math
class (Methods which taught you to think like a 4 year old so you could in turn
teach a 4 year old math) to watch for black smoke and then white smoke.I wasn’t worried about skipping the
class as I had over a 100% and didn’t even need to take the final.What I wasn’t counting on was answering
the phone while I was skipping class and Professor Champaign (who’s class I was
skipping and who lived on Michigan Avenue!) being on the other calling to let
me know that my homework was on the counter in the classroom and I could pick
it up when I was over there.I
think she figured out that I wasn’t sick.Also, the pope didn’t die during that 50 minutes.
Seriously though, I am so excited for this Conclave and
am jealous that I can’t be there to watch because 1) I am not in the Vatican,
2) am not Catholic, 3) am not a man, and 4) am not a Cardinal.
