Papa Murphy's Move Over...and 100% Spelling Day

With great success I made pizza. I used the whey off of the cheese...it's the greenish watery stuff that separates out from the curd. It was the best pizza I've ever made...I've had better homemade pizza(and the chef who makes it knows who she is....)...but it's the best I've ever made! I was so delighted with the crust. I used olive oil and garlic for our sauce and used our herb cheese(see last post), sauteed onions, and chopped up ham...it was wonderful and there were no left overs...so move over Papa Murphy's! Oh, and I even rolled up cheese on the sides...mmm!

100% Spelling! This is normal for this guy! I have to say it's because I'm just relaxed about spelling. I only require he master 10 words a week and so he writes them twice along with making up a fun sentance. I find this method works best. Its not a "proven" method as I kind of combined a few methods, taking what I liked about this one and not about that one...and well the proof is in the pudding!
He is such a lover of school...always over-achieving and begging me to do more school...he loves it. Math is his favorite by far and sometimes I find him doing four pages of math and wanting to do more...sad to say I've had to put a limit on his daily math papers or he would do only math...all day long!
We find him to be our most gentle child and don't know if he even can muster up a mean streak...he's just sweet and very loving!
Good Job Mr. Knight! We all love you so much!

You're a stinker! hehehe! Your pizza is GORGEOUS! I never had a pizza so pretty! But I don't understand what you said about whey...did you use that for the crust? like instead of water? Interesting...

And Way-To-Go Mr. Knight!! He's so smart and so loved by this family!!

hugs to you all,

Yes, the whey is what I used...makes a wonderful loaf of bread! And I beg to differ...you have had gorgeous pizza and it was very, very, very tasty...the best...the best...the best I've ever had!
