Mushroom Pizza

in All Posts

French bread pizza for dinner… mmmm!


To add some veggies to my diet, I stir-fried a white slices white mushrooms and added them to the pizza (under a nice, thick layer of melty mozzarella cheese).


For a dessert, I had three chocolate praline sea shells and a bowl of cherries:


And my afternoon snack was a bowl of cereal with almond milk:


I skipped my workout today – I’m kind of in between training plans and enjoying the relaxation and rest.  Official triathlon training starts next week – ack!


Just For Fun


As you all know, I am obsessed with Lady Gaga.  I just think she’s an absolute genius as well as totally insane (I mean that in the nicest way possible).  I watched a little bit of an interview with her tonight, check out Part 1(Part 2 and 3 are also on YouTube):


I love her.

    I question the adjective “genious” with LG, but insane–I’m fully with ya 🙂 (But really, I could workout to her entire album)

  • alyssa January 25, 2010, 9:33 pm

    so weird. i was literally WATCHING this interview as i read this post, and got really confused which internet page i was looking at. i just cracked up at her line “well yes, but in real life, you should always have sex with a condom.” she’s freaking incredible.

  • Lisa January 25, 2010, 9:34 pm

    I love her too!! She is so wonderfully weird 🙂 My sister lives in NYC and actually lived above the restaurant where she was a waitress just a few years ago!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 25, 2010, 9:34 pm

    Mmmmm…french bread pizza– I never think to make that! It reminds me of my days when I was obsessed with lean cuisines 🙂

  • Matt January 25, 2010, 9:36 pm

    Haha Lady GaGa is pretty awesome 🙂

  • Jenna January 25, 2010, 9:38 pm

    Love lady gaga!!
    Pizza looks delicious!!

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans January 25, 2010, 9:38 pm

    Oh GaGa… I wish I could wear half of the stuff she does! I love how she isn’t afraid to be SO incredibly out there!

  • Mara @ What's For Dinner? January 25, 2010, 9:38 pm

    Whenever I hear “french bread pizza” the little jingle from the old stouffer’s commercial. And, Gaga is fantastic…but i think she’s a man!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is January 25, 2010, 9:41 pm

    I looove cherries!! Yum! 🙂

  • ashleigh January 25, 2010, 9:42 pm

    Jealous of those cherries!! They look so red and delicious.

  • Christina January 25, 2010, 9:45 pm

    She’s totally insane and awesome! I love that she does things you would never think of, from her outfits to her songs, she’s definitely not generic!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 25, 2010, 9:46 pm

    French bread pizzas..yum! I haven’t had one in forever, they have been missing from my life. I really want one now lol

    Lady Gage is insane! But awesome. Love love love her.. she’s like the new Britney Spears.. but way better!

  • Karla January 25, 2010, 9:50 pm

    OMG Pizza galore today! I think I’ve seen it on 5 blogs! All I want right now is a fatty slice!
    Lady Gaga is AMAZING! She still doesn’t top Beyonce for me though!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) January 25, 2010, 9:55 pm

    I don’t “get” the Lady Gaga love. Her music is catchy but she’s just… insane. 😛

    Homemade pizza is the best! It’s on the menu for tomorrow night.

  • Maria January 25, 2010, 9:56 pm

    I’m glad I’m not the only one obsessed with her!

  • Kathleen January 25, 2010, 9:57 pm

    I heart Lady Gaga, too…I am so glad that other people love her just as much as I do because I love her message about loving all the things that you hate about yourself. She talks about positive image, about making your own space that you can be comfortable in, even when that space is not the same as everyone else’s or “the cool kids”…I just feel inspired because she says so many positive things…I see so much beauty and acceptance in her writings (music).

    • Caitlin January 26, 2010, 7:36 am

      me too! i love how she is down with just being YOU no matter if you’re weird, normal, gay, bi, straight, crazy, sane, smart, artsy… it’s awesome.

      • Christina January 26, 2010, 10:33 am

        These are all of the reasons I love her as well!

        ♥Lady GaGa♥

        I’m dying to see her in concert, but all of her shows are sold out near me (even the stubhub, etc. tickets)!

  • Kristie January 25, 2010, 10:02 pm

    Oh Lady Gaga… she really is nuts, in the best way. Those cherries look delicious & so refreshing!

  • Jolene ( January 25, 2010, 10:02 pm

    Lady Gaga is SO cool!! I love her too!!

    I love mushrooms on pizza – tomatoes too!

  • Vicki January 25, 2010, 10:07 pm

    I love her! Now I’m craving some cherries. 🙂

  • Jane January 25, 2010, 10:08 pm

    Hi again Caitlin; I have 2 questions – what cereal is that? It looks delicious. Is it Honey Bunches of Oats? I was getting that and it was so good (but sugary!) that I was eating it like dessert! I am wondering if you have a close-to-but-healthier substitute.

    Second – do you charge your Garmin after every run? I got one for my birthday and am not sure how often to charge it.

    • Amanda January 25, 2010, 10:16 pm

      I have a habit of plugging my Garmin in after every run, but I think the manual says the battery will last for 10 hours if I remember correctly.

      • Jane January 25, 2010, 10:36 pm

        Thanks Amanda! I have also been wondering how Caitlin gets the mile splits for her runs – when I go into “History” and look at a workout, I can see calories, average pace, but I don’t see anywhere for mile splits. I am just loading Garmin Connect to see if that will help – I don’t see it anywhere in the Garmin Training Center either. Amanda, do you use Garmin Connect or Garmin Training Center?

    • Caitlin January 26, 2010, 7:37 am

      You need to use the Auto Lap feature to get your mile splits 🙂

      I charge my Garmin every two runs or so – Garmins die reaaaaaaaaaally quickly esp if you accidentally leave it on.

      And the cereal is the Blueberry Pecan kind from Costco. MMM

      • Amanda January 26, 2010, 8:18 am

        I started off using Garmin Training Center, but I had a few problems with it. I like Garmin Connect better, but I’ve been using both lately.

        Yeah, you have to set your auto lap feature for 1 mile laps to get your splits.

  • Teacherwoman January 25, 2010, 10:10 pm

    I love Lady Gaga too. I think she is a lot more normal than people give her credit for. She seems very intelligent!

    Yay for triathlon training! What kind of schedule are you going to follow? Are you following one in particular or kind of just making one of your own? I am curious!

    • Caitlin January 26, 2010, 7:38 am

      I’m making my own bike/run schedule and Ryan from Greens for Good is making my swim schedule. I’ll post it next week.

  • Amanda January 25, 2010, 10:15 pm

    Wow, that video was very cool. I’ve never paid much attention to Lady Gaga but after watching that video I really dig what she’s all about.

  • Melissa January 25, 2010, 10:31 pm

    I LOVE her too! She seems so real every time I hear her on the radio or see her at an interview.

  • Babycakes January 25, 2010, 10:34 pm


  • Kerry (Running on Faith) January 25, 2010, 10:50 pm

    She is definitely on my GO TO playlist and I search for her song on my shuffle before I up my intensity of the workout! Thanks for the clip!!

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write January 25, 2010, 11:52 pm

    Lady Gaga is so interesting. I don’t love her music. It’s not my style, but what I think is so fascinating is that she’s American!!! She seems SO European. New Age Madonna.

    • Caitlin January 26, 2010, 7:38 am

      I agree! The Husband and I thought she was European.

  • Penny January 26, 2010, 12:31 am

    I really like her music, but I must say…I think she is a wee bit scary. 🙂
    I would love to see her real hair. 🙂

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) January 26, 2010, 12:38 am

    completely agree…i watched lady gaga on jay leno the other night and was completely spellbound. she’s hilarious, but i’m not sure if she means to be…?

    love the pizza!

  • Leo @ cupcakes in Paris January 26, 2010, 12:49 am

    Love your french bread pizza. My mom, sis and I used to make that on sunday morning for brunch. So good!

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) January 26, 2010, 1:01 am

    I love Lady Gaga too. She is way too amazing for words. And totally insane in the best way possible.

  • eatingRD January 26, 2010, 1:48 am

    I’ve been wanting to get cherries at the store lately. Can’t wait to see your swim training. I need to start working on that from square one. And I can’t wait to mess with the garmin 🙂 I like her music too, very fun to dance to!

  • Freya @ January 26, 2010, 2:49 am

    ARGH I Hate Lady Gaga!! I love her music, but as a person she drives me mad (not that I’ve met her lol)! No doubt she’ll win me over though, I used to hate her music too :s
    haha what is it with all the blogs I’m reading having pizza for dinner last night!?

  • Jessica @ WHY DONTCHA RUN January 26, 2010, 6:31 am

    Haha I love listening to Lady Gaga when I run. Her songs really get me pumped! Just somethin’ about her songs… ya know?

  • Haleigh January 26, 2010, 6:48 am

    i watched that interview too. i am obsessed. i love everything that is lady gaga.

  • Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope January 26, 2010, 7:46 am

    I totally have a guilty pleasure love for Lady Gaga, too. It would be one thing if she acted/dressed that way and couldn’t sing, but she actually CAN sing. Too bad she does techno/pop songs since I’m not really into that, but I still listen:) I love her song “Speechless.”

  • Diana (Mymarblerye) January 26, 2010, 7:55 am

    i heart pizza. I can’t believe you aren’t following a training program yet! I thought your double workouts were “alot” already! geez! BTW I’m obsessed with GAGA. All her songs have such sexual tension!

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) January 26, 2010, 7:56 am

    Mmm that reminds me – I used up all the mozzarella last night on the husband’s enchiladas! Need to pick some more up.
    Love Lady Gaga. Her Operah interview was awesome.

  • Jenna January 26, 2010, 7:59 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Lady Gaga aswell! I think shes brillantly creative and I love that shes not afraid to be different. I admire that 🙂

  • Melissa January 26, 2010, 8:53 am

    Thanks for the videos! I found her very interesting. I love her songs, too.

  • Ashley @ Good Taste. Healthy Me January 26, 2010, 8:58 am

    Yum! I love french bread pizza…as well as Lady Gaga!! Her music is the best!

  • julia January 26, 2010, 9:03 am

    That pizza looks so good! My mom used to make french bread pizza when I was a kid but I never make it for myself. But now I’m going to put it on the list for next week!

  • Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story January 26, 2010, 9:28 am

    I love the Gaga! Your pizza looks so fantastic!

  • Rachel January 26, 2010, 9:29 am

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers January 26, 2010, 10:30 am

  • Retta @ RunRettaRun January 26, 2010, 10:30 am

    I am all about Lady Gaga! Love her, love her, love her! Your pizza is making me hungry!

  • Amber K January 26, 2010, 10:37 am

    I don’t think I truly understand her as a person, but her music ROCKS!

  • Ambre January 26, 2010, 1:06 pm

    That pizza looks amazing!!! 🙂

  • Marni January 26, 2010, 3:18 pm

    I could eat french bread pizza every night. Just love it!

  • Danielle January 30, 2010, 8:02 pm

    I LOVE pizza and bread but never thought to make french bread pizza! Sure, I used to eat plenty of it “Lean Cuisine” style as a kid, but this will be so much better! Thanks for the idea 🙂
