Hiya Friends!!!

Is it getting warmer where you are?
Here in Baltimore it is supposed to get above 60 tomorrow.

I am so excited!
Bring it on!!!

  I am spring cleaning the blog.
Yes, I changed my background and header again
This blog is getting like my house with all of the constant rearranging and fussing.
The clutter is getting on my nerves.

Now that  I am almost finished cleaning the blog up... 
I wish I had the energy to finish this house.
Maybe tomorrow!

Yesterday's Mardi Gras dinner was fantastic.  

I made a Cajun shrimp pizza which was super easy.   I bought a premade pizza crust,  spread some jar pizza sauce over the crust, sprinkled it with Cheyenne pepper and paprika,  topped it with some sauteed shrimp and red peppers,  fresh red onion, green onion, more Cheyenne pepper and paprika, and Romano and Parmesan cheeses.

I baked for about 20 mins.

With the pizza we had a fantastic Cajun Pasta salad.
I found the recipe on Pinterest which led me here to this awesome frugal blog ~  budgetbytes

Even though I used polish sausage instead of smoked sausage,  this salad was still great.
I will definitely make it again!

See my nifty herb scissors,  the girls got me those for Christmas.
I have gotten more use out of them then I ever thought.

Sally,  just like her mom and her sister... 
is taking photos of the pepperoni pizza that she made to post on her Tumblr blog.

Can you smell them?

 After dinner we had some great coffee and colorful cupcakes
and lots of dishes.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!!
