Prosciutto pesto pizza twists

Where has this year gone?  It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through May and that summer is about to be here.  I can’t say that it feels like summer since we just experienced a cold front.  The heater came back on and I brought out the long sleeve shirts to go with my sweat pants.  Nothing fancy here.  The other night I put on a dress to see if it fit and my daughter’s eyes lit up when she saw me in it.  Most of my days are in lounge pants with a t-shirt, no make-up, my hair is pulled into a pony tail and I still leave home in this attire.

GASP….. I keep telling myself that I will spend more time on myself but life and time get in the way.

I’m hoping that I will get a nice tan while I’m in Miami and that I will be able to move from sweat pants to shorts with a pair of flip flops.  I’ll prove to everyone that I DO have a closet stocked with other clothes.

While I’m rummaging through my closet for clothes to wear in Miami I wanted to leave this easy prosciutto pesto pizza twists recipe with all of you.  They can be eaten as an appetizer or main meal with a side of marinara or my personal favorite ranch dressing.  The best part is everyone in the family will love them and they only take about 20 minutes from start to finish.

    Tomorrow is my youngest son’s birthday, which naturally made me wonder how another year has passed so quickly. I think I need to slow down a little and enjoy the moments, preferably while munching on one of these pizza twists. Yum!
