Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Up

This Roll Up has been a big hit with the men in my family and they request it every chance they can get.

 It's also perfect for Sunday night football or if you're in the south like I am, Saturday night college ball. 

What you need:
1lb ground beef
6 slices bacon
1 package of pizza dough(I use Pillsbury classic crust)
1 small onion,chopped
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice(I used cheddar)
Mild and Creamy Dijon Mustard

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

In a large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Meanwhile in another skillet brown the ground beef and onion together. Once the ground beef is browned drain grease and set aside.

Chop the crispy bacon and set aside.

Place your pizza dough on a baking sheet and spread it out, just a little bit. 
Squirt a little bit of ketchup onto the dough and then spread it all over the dough. Do the same with the mild and creamy Dijon mustard.

Sprinkle your meat and onion mixture onto the dough and then top with bacon and cheese.

Roll dough into a loaf and make sure the ends are sealed.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil and continue to bake for another 10 minutes 

Let set for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Have fun and play around with different toppings. The possibilities are endless! You can even set out different dipping sauces to go with it. The hubbs loves to dip his in a spicy ranch or BBQ sauce

First Day of School

As usual, I'm late on getting this post up. Better late then never, right?

Jayla's first day of Kindergarten was on August 20th. She was so excited to be going to the "big girl" school and meeting new friends! I on the other hand was a wreck. I wasn't ready for her to enter public school. I could go on and on about my fears of public school.

Surprisingly, I didn't cry not once that day but I think I got it all out the day of Orientation. I did get choked up when she told me she was a little nervous when she woke up.

Her teacher said she did great on her first day of school and seemed to adjust really well. My mom works with the school district and went to Jayla's school to check on her while she was at lunch. I had no idea that my mom was going to check on her but it really put my mind at ease because I was reassured that she was eating her lunch and was having fun. 

If you asked Jayla what she learned on her first day of school she will tell you that she learned how boys leave the toilet seat up and girls leave it down. Of all the things to retain in the day that is what stands out the most to her. She cracks me up.

To complete the first day of school I picked up a giant cookie cake for her! She loved it and I scored a few cool mom points.
While she was enjoying her cookie cake she informed that I put her shirt on backwards and she fixed it at lunch. I guess I lost those cool mom points that I just earned. In my defense, it was early in the morning and I'm use to her nice shirts having the buttons in the back.  I don't think it was too noticeable. If you look at the pictures you can how some don't have buttons and the last one does.
