like, seriously, i had too much coffee

I make lists.

Things to tell Ted when this boring concert is over:
-I think I need a cello. I’d learn to play it.
-What if I’m too busy to hang out with my mom if she comes to visit??
-What if I drew you a bunch of things on brown paper bags? Wait. I already did that.
-Can we get cheesecake?
-I think I drank too much coffee.

Things to remember:
-Not all spices have shaker tops.
-Sometimes bicycles go backwards down one-way streets.
-I shouldn’t buy raisin bread unless I want to eat the whole loaf in two days and feel guilty.
-I am very lucky.

Things to learn to cook well:
-risotto
-gnocchi
-pizza crust
-pot pie
-something that isn’t carbs

I have a foolproof pizza recipe!

1 packet yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp)
1 tbsp sugar
3/4 c. lukewarm water

Mix it! Let it sit for like 10 min.

2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

Mix it!

Add 1 tbsp oil to the yeast mixture, then mix it in with the flour mixture. Use your hands! Knead it for about 5 min. Ideally, it will now sit for an hour and a half, but I've skipped this step and it was still fine.

Top with tomato sauce, lots of cheese, and fresh sliced pepperoni from the deli, plus other toppings at will.

Bake in a preheated oven at 425 for about 15 minutes!

VOILA!

I've had moderate success with replacing these spices with thai/indian spices and topping the crush with curry and vegetables instead of tomato sauce and cheese.

Topping the crush? I have no idea why I typed that. I meant "topping the dough".

thanks! i'm making pizza as soon as i get a chance. which looks to be january 12.

and you'd think i'd had enough spice related incidents for a while, but i'd just like to warn against accidentally sprinkling your oatmeal with cayenne pepper. you know, be careful.

I am kind of crazy when I have too much coffee.
Actually, it's the combination of anxiety and coffee that kills me. AKA chugging a large coffee before an interview. I am NEVER doing that again.
