Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona

1. I never thought for a moment that someday I would be adding Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona to my heroes list, but after watching Lock Up on TV, and finding out that the owners of abused cats, dogs, horses, etc. are being prosecuted I instantly grew to love this man. Arpaio has made a No-Kill beautiful, safe haven for these abused animals in one of the oldest air conditioned jails where the cats and dogs are cared for by the female inmates, and the bigger animals by the male inmates.

Arpaio said something to the effect that those poor abused animals spend more time behind bars than those who abused them. I hope this man will be able to change the laws to where those who abuse animals will be given severe punishments, instead of a mere slap on the wrist!

Sheriff Arpaio has seriously touched my heart, and early this morning I called Phoenix, Arizona to get the exact address of M.A.S.H. so I can start sending a monthly check whenever possible for $10.00 for his wonderful cause.

2. My brother, his wife and kids arrived from San Antonio, Texas on Friday, and left yesterday morning. I’m surprised that I was able to bury the hatchet with my sister-in-law. We all had a really nice time. I thank God I never told my brother about her cheating on him through email while he was in Iraq!!

I love tooting my horn as the Queen of Hot in the Kitchen. This 1st pic is of a homemade pizza I made a while ago. Here you will find step by step pictures of the one I made this week-end.

Knead flower and yeast, let rise, roll out.

Bake in oven until it is a very light golden brown.

Large Italian sausage links fried and finely crumbled.

Sautéed in olive oil: mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and green, red, yellow peppers. Spread over pizza along with pepperoni. Other toppings I've used are jalapenos, black olives, bacon, pineapple, sliced fresh tomatoes.

Someday I'll give you the recipe for the pizza sauce.

Mozzerella cheese.

Oh man that pizza looks good.
You've made me so darn hungry! :)

Thank you! It tasted even better than it looked.

I'm sorry the pizza made you hungry, but since I'm such a little devil, I'm gonna post a pic of the homemade BBQ brisquet burgers I made for them the next day! :o)

What dreams R made of...
Perhaps the day will someday come when I make one especially for you.

Sheriff Joe has been a hero of mine for some time. His stance on what a criminal is and should be doing while in jail is right on track. He makes his inmates work for their food, they don't get a free ride. This latest with the animals is great. Wish I could make a pizza like that. My dough is ick.

The way I can tell when a person is compassionate is when that person loves animals. Sheriff Arpaio is a good man in my book. And to think I once disliked him.

What are you doing to make the dough icky? Perhaps your letting the dough rise as if you were going to make bread. Just let it rise a little for a little while, and it comes out perfect.

Mmmmmm good. Lucky grandpa.
Sep. 8th, 2010 05:44 am (UTC)
Yeah, Grandpa is a lucky man, but not as lucky as I am!

I'll soon post a pic of the hot dogs I made with the delicious gift you sent me!

Oh yes, it was super tasty!
Thank you!

I love animals just a tiny touch more than humans. I realize this man is pretty tough with prisoners, and always disliked him for it, but when I found out he's an animal lover, my ill feelings for him came to an end.

Looks delish. I may get pizza for lunch now

What are your favorite toppings?

And did you end up getting a pizza for lunch?
Sep. 16th, 2010 06:32 am (UTC)
I did grab a slice of pepperoni and mushroom

I like olives on mine. Pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms are fine, but olives make it, for me

Beautiful pizza! That's amore!
Sep. 16th, 2010 03:55 am (UTC)
Yes, that's true amore!

TY for the packed lunch.
I so wanted a slice of that pie. This song is for you:
