Book Club - The Martian by Andy Weir


"And now I'm out of the daylight again.  I can't wait to get out of this damn shadow."

"I started the day with some nothin' tea.  Nothin' tea is easy to make.  First get some hot water, then add nothin'. "

"But really they did it because every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out.  It might not seem that way sometimes, but it's true."

Pizza Ring



I found this recipe for Easy Sausage Pesto Ring in a magazine called Fall Baking.  
I switched it up with pasta sauce and pepperoni for The Boy.  He loved it.  
Here's what I did.

1 TB butter
2 pk pillsbury biscuits
pepperoni
cheese
pasta sauce or pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 350'.  Grease a bundt pan with the butter.

Open the biscuits and lay them out on a cutting board.  Gently flatten them slightly.  
Cut the pepperoni into roughly the same size as the biscuits.  
Top each biscuit with a spoon of sauce, some pepperoni, and some grated cheese.  
Stack the biscuits in groups of 3 or 4.  Turn each stack on its side and place 
in the pan, forming a ring.   
Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven, sprinkle with some additional 
cheese, and bake 5 more minutes.  
Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes before eating.

Book Club - Yes, Please by Amy Poehler



"It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for.  It takes years to find your voice and seize your real estate."

"Stop whining about getting old.  It's a privilege."

"Make "No" a complete sentence."

"I am a moon junkie.  Every time I look at the moon, I feel less alone and less afraid."  

"I love my boys so much I fear my heart will explode.  I wonder if this love will crack open my chest and split me in half.  It is scary, this love."
