Friday's Fave Five, 1/15/16

LINK to Friday's Fave Five host blog

1. Great spirit week and homecoming last week.  I don't have any pictures on here of the homecoming, but it was the best we've ever had.  We tried having alumni games instead of interscholastic ones, and it really worked.  We had more graduates than ever to return.  Now to make it even better next year.

This pic is of the students who won on "superheroes" day for spirit week.

2. Wewalka pizza dough.  My family never liked my homemade pizza.  They said the crust (the canned pizza dough from the refrigerator section of the grocery) wasn't good.  A couple of weeks ago I noticed that our grocery was carrying something new - a pizza dough that was rolled up on parchment paper.  I tried it at the end of last week, and we loved it.  So much better than the other, and easier too - all you do is unroll the parchment paper.   They also have croissant dough and puff pastry.  The website said it is a new import to the U.S. from a European bakery.  I will make pizza more often now, and maybe will try some of their other products also.

3. Navy bean soup from my mom for our supper on a cold winter day.  Kept me from having to make salads or rustle up something else to eat.  Thank you.

4. We had a fun night sitting up late to watch the National Championship Football game.  It was too late to have company or go anywhere, but it was a great game, and fun to watch.  And I slept surprisingly well, having gone to bed so late, so didn't feel too many aftereffects the next day.

5. Exams are over, a new semester has started, and though I have to be at school Monday for parent-teacher conferences, students don't come back until Tuesday.  So it's essentially a three-day weekend, and it should be a quiet one.  Always nice!

Wonderful that homecoming went well! I have not heard of that pizza dough - will have to keep an eye out for it. We always liked the canned one ok, and they have a gluten-free version for my d-i-l, but I would be interested to try this too. Nice of your mom to make the bean soup - always nice to have dinner made some nights. Enjoy your 3-day weekend!

We don't attempt homemade pizza at home. We sometimes do get Papa Murphy's which you can bake at home and it's delicious and if you use their coupons it's pretty close to buying and prepping all your own ingredients. I love soup and now you have me thinking what night I can make a delicious navy bean soup.

Homecomings and reunions are important for alumni. (see my faves--reunion included)
I love soups and you were blessed to have it made for you. Hmmm, now I'm thinking of making soup for dinner.
