I know giving thanks to pizza probably wasn’t high on your list of things you’ll mention when you go around the Thanksgiving table next week.
But bear with me…
My schedule tonight included leaving work at 3:15 to pick up Sparkles (my 4 yo now wants to be called Sparkles) so we could arrive home by 4 when the 10 yo and 8 yo are dropped off by the bus. I’d made sure said 10 year old and 8 year old were
told multiple times this morning prepared to hit the ground running when they got home and change into their soccer uniforms asap. In other words, the TV could not go on.
- First soccer game was 4:30 to 5:10.
- Second soccer game was 5:00 to 5:45 (thankfully in the same facility as the first game).
- Preschool age cheerleading was 6:00 to 6:45 (conveniently located exactly 15 minutes from the soccer facility).
- To top off our night, my 10 year old wanted to be evaluated for what level of gymnastics we should enroll her in and
the stars aligned just rightthankfully that could be done at the cheerleading location at 6:45.
You can see that there really wasn’t time anywhere in here to pull my nonexistent gourmet cooking skills out and whip up a meal. Hence, I am thankful for pizza.
It includes some vegetables, some dairy, some protein… my kids don’t say “YUCK! What’s that?” when I
spend hours slaving over it serve it, it doesn’t go bad sitting in my freezer waiting for me to need it, and it’s relatively inexpensive. So yep, I’m thankful for pizza.
What food are you thankful for?
*Disclosure – We did not have time to make homemade pizza like shown in the picture. That one involved mixing dough, letting it rise, then baking – which of course, we didn’t have time for, but which is also a great activity with your kids. Can’t believe I haven’t posted about it yet actually…Soon!
More thankful posts…
