Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

Monday the kids had spring break, so I took Sloan with me on our run. She stayed and played on the tree swing for a while, then at the creek, while I ran up the trail to the White Rock Trail, then I ran back down. We both had a lot of fun. I thought I'd show you pictures of me on my run.

Ok, here we go! I think I usually start of on my right foot because I'm right handed.

I love this trail! It has all kinds of surfaces, leaves, rocks, bridges....

Just plain dirt!

Time to cross the creek!

Lots of nice cold mountain water!

I took the bridge, I use to wade through the creek, but then a bridge was put in.

Here's the little sign for White Rock, but we're turning back. Now it's all downhill!

3 Roads diverged in a Yellow Wood*, and I took the one that went downhill!

Not this one, today!

Yup, this is the way back! I love the way these trees have grown together!

Ok, we're going back now.

I love these big rocks in the trail! Like big pavers!

I wonder who lives in this hole? It looks like a nice little place for an animal to live.

Ok, we're all done! Wasn't that fun! Now you know just what I look like when I'm out running! lol

Chauncey and I were looking at a Taste Of Home magazine at the eye doctor's office yesterday and we saw a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza. We decided we had to come home and make it for dinner. I didn't copy the recipe, but this is what we came up with. This is my favorite pizza crust recipe to make, it doesn't even have to raise if you don't have time.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

1 1/2~2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup hot water, not too hot
1 teaspoon sugar


1/2 ~3/4 cup Alfredo Sauce
2 cups chopped ham
2 cups chopped chicken nuggets
3 cups Swiss Cheese, grated
3 cups Mozzarella Cheese, grated

In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, pour water. Sprinkle with yeast and sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup of the flour and the salt and mix. Add more four until dough comes away from sides of the mixer. Set the mixer to knead for 5 minutes. Remove dough to a greased bowl and cover and let rise. The warmer it is out the faster it will raise. Mine took about 20 minutes. Pat dough out into a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam.

Spread Alfredo sauce over dough and sprinkle with the meats, then the cheeses. Bake at 400 degrees for 15~20 minutes or until crust is starting to brown.

I thought I'd give the the real version of The Road Not Taken. I love this poem. One of my boys taped it on the bathroom mirror when he was in High School so he could memorize it. I think we all have now!

Robert Frost. 1875~

The Road Not Taken

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 1

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
