Pepperoni Pizza Bites


Sometimes I just want to be a kid again.  I want someone to serve me my meals, put on my coat, brush my teeth, tuck me into bed and read me a story.

I want someone to decide what groceries to buy, put me into the best school and help guide me through this thing called parenthood.  Being a parent isn't easy.  I often wonder if I am aging at warp speed.  The grey hair sure seems to give that away.  

Hey Mom, if you are reading, did you have this much grey hair at 31?  And if we have a third child will my hair go completely white?

Just wondering.


Wondering why I'm talking about parenting and aging, yet featuring photos of pizza bites?  Well, sometimes I just want to eat like a kid.  There is just less stress and worry.  What vegetable should we have?  Forget-about-it.  How do I time the main dish and side dish to be done at the same time?  Forget-about-it.

You see eating like a kid is simple.  The other day, when it had been a semi-rough day, I made these pizza bites for dinner.  I was just done thinking for the day.  I didn't care what vegetable we had, I didn't care if a side of fruit was served and I certainly did not care to be spending much time in the kitchen.

And you know what?  The kids lived.  They ate these pizza bites for dinner and survived.  There was not one ounce of healthy ingredients served {okay, maybe my homemade pizza sauce using tomatoes from the garden last summer}, but other than that, it was just a fun-filled, kid-loving dinner.

And we all woke up the next day.

Can you believe it?


Here's my challenge to you.

Try not and make every meal such an effort.  Take one day a week to make something so simple it seems ridiculous.  Take one day a week to be standing in the kitchen for no longer than 20 minutes.  Use that extra time to play with your kids, go for a walk or catch up with an old friend.

I'll be happy to lend you this pizza bites recipe.  They come together in a jiffy.  Refrigerated pizza dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni and cheese.  Tuck the dough around the ingredients.  Brush with butter and seasonings.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until slightly golden.

That's it.


Oh, and next time I may try bacon cheeseburger bites.

Just sayin'.

    It's nice to have a quick meal like this every so often, these would be a nice filling after school snack too. As for the grey hair, don't feel bad- I'm not even quite 30 yet and already getting them...ugh!

  10. Many customers have stated that when they have ordered these counterfeit, fake, imitation
    UGG's, they would arrive in the plain, brown box that looked battered. People of every class and level can simply get these because their prices are of every range. What lots of people are finding are imitation, fake UGG Boots.

  11. If you disregarded the Ugg guidelines and wore your boots in water, or you dropped liquid on your boot,
    you may have stains along your boots. There are many types for babies, nevertheless the very top with the favorites list include:.
    Delicately wipe it utilizing a damp material, will not
    likely brush it fiercely that includes a brush, don't melt away the sneakers with boiled water, and don't use washing detergent and alkaline cleaning fluid to scrub it on the same time.

  12. Just because name implies, these ugg boots are from Australia, that are
    crafted from twin-tier merino wool. ì (IE: sand, chestnut, chocolate,
    black) UGG boots. The unique qualities with the sheepskin mean that
    they will maintain feet warm in perhaps the coldest of weather, but when you put them on in summer they is not going to overheat your foot.
