Pizza Bombs, A Snack to Blow Your Mind!

The family is together again and everything is going incredibly wonderful until everyone starts to get the hunger monster. Dinner won’t be ready for another three  or four hours, what are you gonna do? I think everyone needed a snack and quick! Everyone was getting irritable and one of uncles was drinking a little too fast.  For Pirate Mom, easy and quick recipes are the best. Pizza is something most people love, so why not make it small, fun, and dippable? Let me give you my recipe and get ready to blow your families’ socks off!

You will be needing nine simple ingredients to make these explosive little things. This recipe makes about 10-20 pieces.

  • Biscuit Dough ( One Pillsbury Dough)
  • Mozzarella Cheese ( 1 Block)
  • Marinara Sauce (1 Bottle)
  • Butter (4 Tbsp)
  • Italian Seasoning (1 Tsp)
  • Salt & Pepper (1 Tsp)
  • Pepperoni (1 Package)
  • Parmesan Cheese (1 Package)
  • Garlic (2 cloves)

Pizza Bombs PreparationNow that you have your ingredients, lets get started. Prepare your oven at 375 degrees.  Open the dough and flatten them out as shown in the picture. If you have large pieces you may cut them in half and make more. Add a little bit of marinara sauce, a small piece of mozzarella cheese and a pepperoni. Fold the outsides over, flip, and place nicely on your lightly greased pan. I like to put waxed paper down too so the bombs don’t stick to anything. 

Next you are gonna melt your butter, add in the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic and mix well.  Cover all of the pizza bombs with this lovely mixture and top with a little parmesan cheese. Set them into the oven for fifteen to twenty minutes until lightly browned. When done, plate it and add the remaining marinara sauce in a bowl for dipping sauce. Serve and enjoy. Watch out now, it will be wiped out before you know it!  2014-08-04-pizza-bombs-9-680x384

Fun New Things to do at Pearlridge Mall

My family needed to get out and about. We sometimes go out to the park, the library, and to the beach. Peal Ridge Mall is always a pleasure to check out when we get a chance. Especially over the summer, Pearl Ridge has goodies up in the summer. Let us tell you about our adventure.

They have a bungee jumping activity right now, great for the whole family. Alexiis did some back flips and enjoyed it so much. It lasts for five minutes, but those five minutes is a real work out! If you jump high enough you’ll be able to shaka at everyone on the second floor. People have so much fun on this activity.

Another new activity they have right now is called the finger coaster. Before starting this cool ride you come to a touch screen where you lay out your very own roller coaster with a touch of a finger. Go left, right, up, down, and even do loop-dy-loops if you want! When its complete, the host will have you seat up to four people. They use the VR headsets to give you the feeling of being on a real roller coaster. The seats move along with you actually giving you that scary, slow motion going up the roller coaster, and the immediate down that makes you hold on to your chair for dear life. Its an experience to remember. Look all around you and you can see the ocean, the other rides, and the blue sky. Its amazing.

Don’t Just Think of Being Savvy, Be Savvy

Calling all pirates! It’s time to stop thinking about it what you’re going to do and start taking imperfect action. Yes I said imperfect action. Whatever it is you all would like to accomplish in this lifetime you can. There’s that saying if there’s a will there’s a way. Find that way and keep digging away until you reach your gold. There’s no such thing as I can’t, there’s no way, and there’s no but’s in my vocabulary. I will be deleting them as of now and you should too. Here’s why you should.

Your mind is a powerful thing and if you think you can, you very much can. If you think you can’t, what if you fail, but this may happen, and you focus on negativity, then ultimately you will get only negative results.  I still struggle with this and I tend to forget myself sometimes. So let me remind you. You are great! And filled with an abundance of talent that only you possess. Share it with the world and see what you get in return.

I admit I still have my days where I start self doubting and questioning things. Maybe things aren’t going the way I had planned or foreseen. That’s okay too! Always look on the bright side and think that your glass is half full, never half empty. Take yourself away from reality for a second. Get your mind and body into a zone where you have no other choice but to thrive! Push, dig, run, jump, and do whatever you have to do to reach that goal. Because the more you focus on something the more it will be attracted to your energy and it will become yours, I promise you that.

Have you ever had a bad day? Starting off with maybe waking up late. Then you start complaining about this, and that, and you feel like the list of things that suck in your day just never ends. Sound familiar? Now lets say you had changed your mindset. As soon as you realized you were thinking negatively you turn it around and start thinking about only positive things. Today is beautiful! I am so happy for this opportunity right now! My hair looks amazing! Keep doing that! Your day will change for the better and you will totally forget that you even had a bad day. What is that anyway?

When reaching for a goal, don’t overthink it. Don’t try to plan everything out to the T. Yes have a course of action, don’t jump in absolutely blind but don’t spend two months of your time thinking about how you are going to accomplish things. Take a step towards it everyday. Move out of your comfort zone and into the realm of possibilities. Which is where the magic happens!

Let’s recap. What is the goal here? Don’t over think it, and work towards it little by little everyday. Think positive and radiate that greatness you were born with. Share and help others along your journey to your greatest version and see what happens. Be savvy and live great my friends!

Summertime in Hawaii

It’s summer everybody! Lets go camping, take our children to the park, and go fishing at the beach! What to you like to do on summer vacation with your family. This is our first summer all together. Usually Alexiis has summer school and Michael and I are working. We can all picture  summer time to be filled with blue skies, sandy beaches, crisp waves, green grass, etc. Especially in Hawaii where the weather is always gorgeous. This summer has been a little different for us but I’m kind of digging it. This time around its a gloomy, rainy, muddy mess.

Its just about June as I look out my window now. Its dark and gray sky, bringing down the rain. Don’t get me wrong. I love the rain. So does Alexiis because she gets to play in it with the other children that is outside too. Not for long though, we don’t want anyone to get sick. Michael and l get to work on our business, make food, and clean the house. I already did the laundry, clean the bathroom and bedrooms yesterday. I guess its the kitchen and on to folding the clothes today.

Alexiis has things to do in her day too such as her language arts and math workbooks. I bought them online from Tri-C publications Inc. We work on them in the morning. The rest of the day is spent doing activities and making sure she eats her snacks and takes a nap. Sometimes she will play with her friends in the neighborhood. I should really limit her iPad usage. Does you child love their iPad or tablet?  It’s literally ’til death do us part, type of thing with her. What do you do when trying to limit your children’s usage. Any fun suggestions?

Hawaii is a beautiful place with beautiful weather usually. Hopefully the rain passes so we can have a day to go to the carnival. What is your family doing over the summer?
