This is what happens when you let your children pick their own fabric. You get mermaids mixed with cupcakes & polka dots. Somehow though, in some weird way, it kind of works, no?
I’m such a sucker for my girls & I putting on our aprons to cook together. It’s so sappy sweet I could almost gag but I love it, I just love it.
We’ve been doing homemade pizza mondays for the last month & even though the clean-up is a bit more labor intensive than I’d prefer seeing the girls get so excited to participate in cooking week after week is just heart warming. Makes me feel like a good mommy. Especially when there are other times in the week when they watch way too much TV or eat a drive-thru happy meal…twice.
Here’s a question for you, I need some pizza making advice. How do I keep the pizza from sticking to the pizza stone & also how do I transfer the kids’ pizzas they assemble onto the stones?
I’ve tried flouring the stones & also have learned to pre-heat them but still, so many spots in the finished pizzas are completely glued on & break apart when I try to slide a spatula underneath the cut slices to serve them. Crazy frustrating! Then for the second part of my query…I can not figure out how to get their perfect little creations onto the stones! This past Monday, as you can see in the pictures above, I tried having them assemble on parchment paper thinking the pizzas would easily slide off onto the stones but nope, they fell apart & I had to do my best to quickly de-wonkify them without the girls noticing. I dunno. Any tips would be so much appreciated! This is a tradition I hope to keep up until they’re surly little teenagers & just want to hide out in their rooms wearing flannel & listening to Alanis Morisette. Geez, did I just age myself or what?
*Oh my gosh, I almost forgot to tell you that cupcake fabric is what I used to make Samster’s 1st birthday dress. Sighhh, I just can’t believe that was 4 years ago. Where did it go? The link is here if you want a little throw-back. Remember how she spent it in the ER? Ugh!
