My kids are done with school this week and I can’t decide if I’m glad or dreading it… The harried rush of morning routines will be over, but the destroy-everything-in-the-house-because-we’re-bored is about to start. One of my friends made some “outside rules” that I’m in the process of printing up and laminating to go on the sliding glass door:
1) Ask mom first
2) Sand stays IN the sand box
3) Rocks stay IN the rock bed
4) Close the sandbox when done
5) Inside toys stay INSIDE
Outside toys stay OUTSIDE
6) Clean up when you are ready to come in
Seriously though. I love everything about summer, except this! Hopefully this year we crack down hard enough that good habits are made. Speaking of summer, this weekend is Memorial Day already! I’m celebrating with my sisters who I don’t get to see very often. Even though just hanging out is fun enough, we’re party people. We decided to throw a backyard bbq as a kick-off to summer.

I stopped at Walmart and headed to their frozen section. And then picked up a bunch of fresh produce for some yummy add-ons to our pizza. Have you ever tried grilled pizza? Um, best thing ever! I love the char-taste, not because it’s burned, but because it makes me feel like I’m camping, but without all the prep and sleeping on the ground thing. In fact, Jack’s Original Pizza makes it even easier. Out of the packaging and onto the grill.

That’s right, you can grill frozen pizza straight from the freezer to the grill! I like a thin crust, piled high with toppings.

Mushrooms, olives, peppers, and tomatoes to make a super supreme, and canadian bacon and pineapple for, my favorite, a Hawaiian twist.

Served with fresh fruit and snap peas this meal is packed with taste! Of course, my meals are not complete without a little somethin’ somethin’ at the end. Going with the theme of “build your own” I had all the ingredients for Drumstick Banana Splits out and ready to gobble up.

I can’t decide if I like the peanut butter flavor or the vanilla with peanut butter inside. So what if I have to keep eating them both to decide. Don’t judge.

I ate one before dinner AND after.
