This week the kids and I had a night with nothing going on and Daddy was out of town for work. I asked the kids what they wanted to have for dinner and we decided on making do-it-yourself pizzas. We had to run to the store after school to get the stuff needed. My helpers quickly became a pain by pulling the cart in 3 different directions, but we made it through and I needed an arm workout, right? We decided that we’d do strawberry shortcake for dessert since I already had strawberries at home. We picked up the cakes and whipped cream. When we got home I chopped up the strawberries and then Little Man helped me mix the sugar in to make the strawberry topping. I then heated up the oven, lined the tray and cut the English muffins to make the pizzas. I called the kids in one at a time to make their pizzas because they’ve been really pushy with each other lately. (I think we’re all ready for spring around here and to get outside and play.) My goal was to get Wreck it Ralph set up on the PS3 while dinner cooked, but unfortunately my PS3 no longer reads disks. While trying to figure it all out the pizzas got done and the kids got finished eating. I tried setting up a media server on my laptop and everything, it was quite a problem. We eventually ended up watching it downstairs on the little tv. Halfway through Wreck-It Ralph, I went upstairs to assemble the strawberry shortcakes. Dragging 4 bowls down the stairs by myself was no fun! Buddy and Monkey liked their dessert, but Little Man didn’t. It was way too sweet for me since I’ve been on Shaklee for a week now and haven’t had anything sweet since Sunday. I didn’t even have any of the strawberries. Overall it was a fun night with the kids and it was nice to just spend time with them. What did you and your kids do for dinner this week?
