This is a busy month in a crazy time. From the time of this post, I have 3 days until my due date with our newest addition. No, he hasn’t been born yet. That’s only a part of it, however. My older kids go back to school the Monday after and I’ve been running around, 9 months pregnant, gathering school supplies and dress code attire for their first days back. None of this I necessarily had to accomplish myself, I did have help. But it’s what my kids expect. And it’s what moms do. Plus, I thought walking would maybe help to expedite the situation. Obviously, it hasn’t.

It’s just part of the messiness of motherhood. And it’s only about to get messier. On those days, though, at least we have Red Baron as a mealtime solution to tame the craziness. And I can rely on my inner Red Baroness, the one who’s seen and done it all with patches to show for it.

Available at Walmart, thank heavens for Walmart, we picked up a few varieties of Red Baron pizza from the frozen section.

My kids are fans of sausage and pepperoni, so I made sure to grab a Red Baron® Brick Oven Meat Trio as well as a Red Baron® Brick Oven Pepperoni.

It’s our favorite Red Baron we know and love, only with some added sass in the form of a wingmom for dealing with mealtime chaos. Because there’s plenty of that. Along with savings, too, when you use this .75 Ibotta rebate offer on any 2 Red Baron pizzas at Walmart!

And because I’m part Red Baroness and still want to make sure my kids have a balanced meal, even when our days are turned upside down thanks to the start of school and a new sibling to get to know, we need a quick and easy fresh side dish.

These bite-sized Bacon Onion Avocado Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes are the perfectly delicious and easy pop in your mouth side dish companion!

Our Bacon Onion Avocado Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes are just as the title suggest. Cherry tomatoes with the tops cut off, then scooped out with a melon baller. You can cut just the slightest bit of the bottoms off, too, so they sit flat.

The filling to our Bacon Onion Avocado Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes consists of a quick mixture of mashed avocado. I love avocado and would include it in every dish if I could.

Then, about half the scooped out tomato, finely chopped onion, a dash of lemon juice, and bacon bits. Top with a few sprinkles of fresh cilantro for a side dish that the kids will love almost as much as the pizza.
