Accessory for Cart Cover and Some Yummy Copycat Pizza

First of all, let me start off by saying good morning and happy Monday everyone!  I wanted to share my new birdbath for my perennial garden.  I am trying to learn the names of all the flowers I have and these(I believe) are coreopsis.  I kind of have a sunflower theme in this garden and I was excited to find this birdbath in Cracker Barrel.  I water my flowers most evenings and I am surprised at how warm the ice cold well water from my hose becomes by the next morning in this bird bath.  I haven't caught birds actually using it, but they do hang around this garden so I am hoping they do.   

I was very excited when I came up with putting a bunting I made over the top of the canvas cover I sewed for this cart.  In the last few posts, I showed you how faded my first cover became.  I was sad because I loved the fabric(Mary Engelbreit) and I had gathered it so it looked so cute originally.  I made this outdoor canvas one more tailored and felt it needed a little something something.  I am happy with what I came up with.  I made it detachable because it will fade, unlike the outdoor canvas so I can sew a new one when it does without replacing the whole thing.

We went to our local Olive Garden several weeks ago and my youngest ordered a pizza.  It was good(he let us all sample) but very expensive for what it was.  I knew I could recreate it at home and sure enough, I did!  I thought mine was even better(tooting my own horn!) and it was super easy.  Just buy a crust like Boboli or Freschetta and buy a jar of Alfredo(I got the parmesan garlic Alfredo).  I used rotisserie chicken breast meat that I had shredded and shredded cheese blend.  Spread some sauce on the crust, top with chicken and cheese.  Bake according to crust directions.  Warm some of the sauce to serve alongside.  Unbelievably good! 

I hope everybody has a great start to your week.  I have something fantastic to share with you later on in the week(I am so proud of my husband).  Take Care.    Nancy
