Teapot Tuesday and twisted pizzas!

(new teapot by Gary Rith---whoa, where'd that texture come from?  Killer with that emerald glaze, hmmmm?)

So much to tell you about.  Yesterday I could SWEAR I got nothing done.... I had SUCH a busy weekend, and although I usually sleep great, I was up late Sunday night reading a Benjamin Black mystery and I was WHIPPED Monday morning....which is probably what people with JOBS feel like on Monday, right? WORTHLESS.  But, I got a new cat gig which will surely make a good blog post next week, and took apart my kiln.  It needs adjusting and new parts.  I mean, skydiving, cliff diving and kiln repair are those things that sort of make you feel like ........ yeah.  Like that.

Anyway, so I sleep great last night BUT, as you hear me say so often, I travel to somebody else's life or something.  My dreams are so utterly vivid and real, and I learn things that I know nothing about sometimes. Last night it was day one of driving a vintage bus for the city.  A bus from maybe the 1940s, it has curtains on the windows and there was a change counter and all that.  I had to learn shifting and driving on the job...and I had forgotten to bring the route map.... luckily the passengers were able to tell me where to go :)

OK, finally, I was really in the mood to try this unusual pizza crust recipe.  You boil rice per usual then form it into a pizza crust, top it, bake it.... really DELICIOUS.  Wow.  It becomes quite rich, with plenty of cheese (mine is dairy-free cheese) and veggies, mmmmm :)  Have  a great Tuesday!

That teapot is beautiful! I might have to try that crust too. I'm stuck on the cauliflower one for light and tasty!

I FINALLY had a really vivid and interesting Gary Rithesque dream last night! I could barely wait to get to my computer to tell you. I was getting a manicure from a former (IRL) therapist. He wasn't feeling well and only completed one hand. As I went to leave, my purse was GONE. My phone, wallet, keys, EVERYTHING. Gone.

I totally need to go back into therapy so someone can explain it to me.

Great teapot, love the texture.

I felt the same on Monday, I even had to succumb to a nap. Oh, the life of a potter.

LOVE the teapot! I usually loathe Mondays….no matter how much sleep I get. :)

I have a rice crust recipe, I think it's exactly the same. I got mine from a Weight Watchers cookbook about 20 years ago.
