Goodbye Earl and Hello Weekend!!!

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone!! Hope everyone is enjoying this last bit of summer, I know I will be! We usually start to close up the pool by the end of the weekend but since this summer has been so hot we are thinking of leaving it open for a bit longer…fine by me! :D

Yesterday, we eagerly awaited Earl to see what he had in store for our northeastern coast line! All we saw inland was a little bit of rain and waking up this morning to see the news, looks like he didn’t even stop to say hello! Rain and wind with little damage on the coast, no biggee!!

I did the 30 Day Shred yesterday, no running scheduled. For breakfast and snack I had a bowl of cereal and then a banana. And for lunch I had plain greek yogurt  with granola and fresh berries!


Dinner was so-so, pizza of course since it was Friday. I had to admit all the while I was putting this pizza together I couldn’t help but try and think of a backup plan…I didn’t have one!

This recipe is from Fitness Magazine and it’s for Thai Chicken Pizza. Click here to get the recipe! The main ingredients are chicken, red pepper, scallions and a peanut butter sauce with mozzarella cheese, of course!

It was easy to put together, the only thing I wasn’t  crazy about was the sauce. The base of it was peanut butter, I used Barney butter and I just thought it was a little too overwhelming! I never thought I would complain about too much peanut butter, lol!! Another thing I wasn’t crazy about was pre-baking the crust, just another step that bugs me when I want to be in and out of the kitchen!

Here’s the finished product..


Looks good, right? It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Hubby loved it but in my opinion, it just doesn’t old a candle to Buffalo Chicken Pizza,  just sayin’!! :)


Off to get this beautiful Saturday started, date night with hubby tonight! :D

Enjoy your day!!!


  1. Usually I am not a fan of chicken on my pizza but I've had a few Thai chicken pizzas and they've been very good. Yours certainly looks good!
    Have a great date night and good job keeping up on the running!

  2. Ah a Pizza Friday girl huh? I made a similar pizza that I grilled a while back b/c I had leftover Thai style tofu that I had done with a peanut butter sauce. I loved it, but it was definitely different.

  3. Sounds great, I will have to try this, I love anything with Barney Butter!

  4. now that is one gorgeous pizza! I have never had a thai chicken pizza, but I bet it was delcious!
    thanks for sharing!

  5. Looks and sounds like perfection!!!

  6. That pizza looks great but I don't know how I would feel about a peanut butter sauce!
