I LIke Thursday # 335 Magenta anyone?


welcome to this week's list of likes, starting with baked goods and a Valentine Kitchen towel

complete with poodle! and so you can celebrate, today is Ground hog day AND Tator tots day! 

Funny Groundhog Day Memes You Can Laugh at No Matter the Forecast

 On with the list...

 I liked this quote this week from Alexander James

I sewed two small quilts this week, but need to show you one of them tomorrow. The other one is this year's Valentine quilt so that will be revealed closer to the 14th...a sneak peak of the first one, for the challenge to take a prompt and make a finished quilt in one week:


Reading on audio 


reading on ebook, a charming story but I've just begun


The book I mentioned last week, by Susan Wiggs I had to turn in unfinished. Mid way the lovely main character's life story took a turn I couldn't handle emotionally. I have PTSD from childhood issues, so the story I recommended and was into, had to be turned in. Do you have trouble with certain story lines? I read for pleasure y'all

Watching on TV

I am doling out the last episodes of Emily in Paris, like fine chocolates... so much fun. The fashions in the recent episode were awesome, yep I mean that. I am trying to watch the Bachelor but I certainly wish the producers would stop manufacturing drama and let these kids find love their own way.

The Good Doctor is back (ABC) and the recent episode showed them caretaking an injured dog... love

Fantasy Island is so good, the remake as good or better IMHO than the original 

We are chuffed that Anne with an E has a lot of seasons for us to stream ( Helen reminded me of episode three, where we had to fast forward past a graphic scene of abuse.... forgot that, beware. Shows are so graphic with violence now) we are on about the 5th episode of season one

Fine Dining

we tried this and it was quick and easy,  so much easier than making yeast pizza dough by hand with all the kneading, waiting, baking just so. This is a bit more like Alessi Bakery pizza I grew up with. 


We used a jar of sauce, mozzarella cheese, a mix of all purpose and whole wheat flour,  turkey pepperoni, green olive and pineapple. don't judge... we like the mix of sweet fruity plus salty meat, and made two big lunches for two people out of it. The second day we toasted the pizza under the broiler and added in some artichokes.

making this reminded me I like our silicon rolling mat, and stainless rolling pin

and later while making pineapple muffins, with chopped pecans I was reminded how much I like our ULU knife set: super sharp blade, perfectly chops onions, peppers or nuts, anything!

The prompt this week is:  What do you think of the panetone color of the year, Magenta?

Panetone's color choice each year turns into a trend for houses, clothing, paint colors. That's my new sweater from dh a true magenta in person,  a mix of red plus blue with more red than blue...

I like new clothes! purchased from Land's End

colors have a vibration that we can see, and react to. Not only do people develop ideas about what colors mean to them, but their feelings react to colors. I love red violet, and this color makes me happy.


a website (LINK) that tells you what your preferences mean said about magenta:

"With magenta as your favorite color, you love to surround yourself with beauty as it inspires your creativity.A love of magenta means you are cheerful and optimistic and love to motivate others to achieve their best.

If magenta is your favorite color you are a compassionate, kind and considerate person who tries to make everyone around you feel better. With your cooperative and supportive nature you may work in one of the caring professions. Being a personality color magenta, you have a good sense of humor although it tends to be a little weird and off-beat."

I find it interesting that magenta is a mix of a warm color (red) and a cool color (blue) and any way you look at it, I LIKE it!

Milo's Moment

Hitting the bottle!

Milo: I am officially tired of the snow in our backyard. Thank Daddy for shoveling a path to the trees for me. I had to do some business on the actual path since I didn't want my private parts touching tall snow. That will make you not want to do it! 

poor the girl dogs out there...
I like to eat more in winter, do you? I need a protective layer of fat heh heh. Especially fat built from cookies mama made me this weekend!

Milo's shadow!

 and one last thing, we're sad to say.... my littermate-sister Scout passed over the rainbow bridge... she was a good poodle and I loved her. Her mama links here under 3poodlesandanana.... send love

 Now sit! stay! visit these nice people to see what they like this week. Let Mama know if you did a post she will include it

Hi LeeAnna,
Great quote aboot comfort or solution !
I will be making this pizza !
Your silicon rolling mat reminds me of the one from Tuperware we had growing up !
Love your new sweater ! Gorgeous colour ! I'll be looking out for one !
Hugs, take ccare,

That is a good response to having a bad day! Sometimes we just need comfort and to be heard! I like Milo’s polka dot sweater! In one of my favorite colors, green. I will be checking out that pizza recipe! As far as storylines I have trouble with! Yes. The Holocaust Horror. I love the stories about the people, the resilience of the human being, but I’m just done with the detail of how we humans treat one another. I know acknowledgment is the first step to change, but sometimes the book just has to go away( at least for awhile). I had to put Lilac Girls back on the shelf for nearly two years before I could pick it up again

I enjoyed hearing what magenta means about you if it is your favorite color! It was fun digging into my fabric piles to see what I have and then sewing with it. Your pizza looks yummy - I'll have to try that crust. Happy Thursday!

Linda said...

Your pizza looks fantastic!
I'm sorry about Milo's littermate. But I'm glad he had a path to do his business.
Although I'm not wild about Pantone's color, I do like your pretty sweater. I think Pantone's version of magenta is too "warm" for me.
Thanks for the linkup!

Cloudia said...

I love this sweet Milo, magenta, and so much more. Here! You do winter right!

Brian's Home Blog said...

Boy does that pizza look great! We have almost the same silicone mat here too. Milo, I don't blame you for going on the path, that was super wise. We're sorry to hear about Scout, that's very sad. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Marti said...

I haven't read Susan Wiggs lately, but yes, there are scenes in books, movies and tv shows that I can't handle. And it seems like there is more and more of it now. There is probably a website that tells us if something has gore, sex, and violence, but I haven't found one that has ratings for anything except movies.

Hi LeeAnna! I definitely read for pleasure and sometimes a topic or even a writing style bothers me enough to not finish a book. For the most part, I try to finish a commitment once I've begun. Sometimes that just isn't possible, and there isn't a book police enforcing a finish for each start. Yum, yum, YUM to your pizza. Those toppings sound fabulous to me! Makes me want to have a homemade pizza night with the littles. I have a ULU knife set that I've never used. Hmm. I wonder where it is. I'll have to look for it and give it a try! WHAT - I didn't hear that about Scout. Oh no. Thank you for the update. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

That pizza looks delicious! That knife looks great for chopping stuff. The cutting board looks neat, too! You need to send your snow my way! :-)

Libby in TN said...

I was in a golf pro shop today and magenta was definitely apparent in the ladies' wear! I was so sad to hear Milo's sister had passed. She was as beautiful as Milo is handsome.

I'm so sorry about Milo's litter mate. That's always tough. Your quilt is beautiful! ( visiting from the link up)

Michelle said...

While I like magenta, I don't think I will really use it in my house. I haven't watched Emily in Paris, but have heard good things about it. Thanks for linking up!

Lisca said...

That pizza looks yummy! I watched the video and I am going to make that. It looks really easy. Watch this space.
Love the Milo story, as always. So sad that one of his siblings died.
You got me confused with the Panetone. For me Pantone is an Italian Christmas bread, and I could not image it in any other colour. Of course I cottoned on fairly quick that you were talking about something else.
Nice colour by the way. I love bright colours, although magenta is not quite my colour.
I have got Netflix since a week and I can get Emily in Paris too, but I haven't got round to watching any of the episodes yet. I'm still on The Crown....
Have a lovely weekend,

Annie said...

I love magenta...enough said 😀😀😀 please give Milo a hug from sorry to hear about his sister. I also don’t like the snow .

Your pizza looks so good. Sometimes, recipes you think sound odd, are really good. I love magenta. It's always nice when a vibrant color gets recognition. I hate when a rather blah color gets chosen. It's hard to get excited!

Kathleen said...

The magenta description sounds so much like you! Love the poodle and the path…our plowing person didn’t know about Percy, so we have a path in our yard. I told my husband it could be our labyrinth. Sorry to hear about Milo’s sister; Percy would have been 15 yeaterday….so sadness abounds. Glad Milo has homemade biscuits to enjoy….lucky dog!
