My kids go back to school in 6 days from the date of this post. 5, 4, 3â€¦ Not that I’m counting down or anything. As such, it’s time we start thinking about ways to make our weeknights easier, particularly the simplest way to go from hungry kids to happy kids at the end of a long, hectic day. We need #foodmadesimple.
The best way that I can think of is pizza. Pizza is always a great answer. TOMBSTONE® Pizza!
TOMBSTONE® Pizza was my favorite pizza when I was a kid. I remember my parents fixing it for us quite often. Now I know why. Not only is TOMBSTONE® Pizza an easy option, but it also satisfies the kids so the adults can have a bit of quiet time watching a movie or simply unwinding after a long day. There’s no hassle involved when you bring up pizza. It’s the perfect weeknight, back to school, stress-free food.
Making my way around Walmart, I made sure to stop in the pizza section of the frozen food aisle to pick up our TOMBSTONE® Pizza. There are many varieties to choose from, but my kids love pepperoni, truthfully so do I, so a pepperoni pizza was an obvious choice. The great thing about a frozen pizza, though, is that you can also add extra cheese or toppings to your half to make it your own if you want. There are plenty of other ideas at Nestle Recipes.
Abby and Jedi like to dunk their pizza in extra marinara, so when our TOMBSTONE® Pizza was finished baking, I cut the pizza into thinner strips. That way, they could fit better in their dipping cups for maximum dunkage.
Then, when everyone is fed and happy, it’s time to settle on the couch, remote in hand. Kick back, relax, unwind. Catch up with some television that we may have missed. Or better yet, catch up with each other. That is what most definitely gets missed during these long, hectic days.
