I continually struggle with what to pack my boys for lunch. J is not a sandwich person at all, but I don't want them to be the kids with weird leftovers from dinner :) (and yes, I was occasionally that kid!)
I recently saw a recipe for pizza cups that seemed to fit the bill. J and C were both interested in helping (and then completely took over!) and it made for a very fun Tuesday evening :)
We started with one package of store made pizza dough and divided it into 8 pieces. (next time I will try 12) Make each piece into a small circle and place it in a muffin cup.
Add in some sauce, pepperoni (if you want) and some cheese.
make sure to throw your dough in the air. ;)
Bake at 375 for about 15-18 minutes...
and voila! Portable pizzas for lunch that can be frozen! Yippee! (although each boy had to sample their work, so we only have lunches for 3 days, not 4!)
It was really great to have the fun evening together. I find that with sports, homework and love of electronics, these evenings are becoming few and far between. Hopefully this sparked something and we can continue to be creative in the kitchen together more often!
