Mama says… #1

Posted: February 21, 2011 in Comedy, Family

So this past Friday, it was 70 degrees and I went skiing at Whitetail with two of my buddies.  70 degrees you say?  Yep, and I wore short sleeves to prove it. Watch the silliness here. Parts 1, 5, and 7 have some of the crazier parts, but if you have time, the commentary on all of them are crazy.

Well, I sent the videos to my mom today and this is her email reply, copied verbatim :

I thought I taught you better.  Haven’t you heard of Pneumonia weather.  I saw where everyone else had on long sleeves.  Great video by the way.

I’ll continue to pray for you,  Dear God, please help my child.


On my way to the grocery store I asked Nariah what she wanted for dinner.
Pizza!!” she replied.
Hmmm, pizza.  Never grilled a pizza before, “Want to try to grill one ourselves?
And we’re off to the store to pick out our ingredients for this homemade pizza.

2 ready to cook pizza crusts (we used thin ones, they cooked too fast for me, I will be looking for some thicker crust next go around)
Flavored Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Garlic powder
Tomato Sauce (Nariah wanted to use Prego traditional for this dish)
Ground beef
Mozzarella cheese
Pineapple tidbits
A pizza stone

First things first, fire up the grill with about 20 charcoal briquettes. With about 1 tablespoon olive oil, brush pizza stone top and place on grates to pre-heat stone.

Prepare your favorite salad dish to eat and garner enough energy to create your pizza masterpiece.

Brown ground beef rolled into little balls.

After draining grease in a strainer, return beef to pan and season with garlic powder and salt. Continue to cook on low for about 3-5 more minutes.

With your favorite dipping oil, brush the crust lightly. We used red pepper olive oil.

Add garlic powder.

Add salt.

Spread your tomato sauce on.

Add cheese

Add toppings (she wanted just pepperoni and cheese)

And we’re ready to give pizza to “grillmaster daddy” for the next phase.

Place pizza on pizza stone in the middle, cover grill and cook about 5-7 minutes.

The cheese will continue to melt when you remove pizza from the grill, so you don’t have to wait until its melted completely. The thinner the crust, the quicker it burns.

Move pizza to cutting board and slice.

Mommy and Daddy’s pizza had cracked peppercorn added to the crust.

The hamburger was added along with pineapples for toppings.

Cooking on the pizza stone.

And we’re ready to eat! Outside of the crust being a little too crispy for me, the pizza was great! (I really don’t like thin crust pizza!)
