This microwave mug pizza recipe is a fun summer lunch idea that kids can make on their own. What child doesn't love pizza? I have yet to meet one!
With the school year speeding by I can already hear my kids running through the yard, rummaging through the pantry, and tracking wet footprints into the house. A vision of summer break.
I love hearing the sounds of kids playing and running around outside. I love them diving into freshly baked muffins or grabbing cold popsicles out of the freezer.
But let's face it. Not all days are like this.
Often times, the sounds of children playing include a whole lot of fighting and those wet footprints? While endearing at first, they tend to get irritating as the kids don't wipe their feet off before running inside to grab something.
Then there's lunchtime. And if your kids are like mine, way too many requests for Mac & Cheese.
This year, I am trying to stay ahead of the game, coming up with fresh kids lunch ideas that will make my kids happy while providing them with the balanced nutrition I strive for.
