Dinner makin' kids

My girls made dinner for the very first time! Granted it was a pretty easy dinner and it was very supervised, but they did all the labor. I thought it would be fun to let them get their hands dirty and make their own pizzas. I've made pizza from scratch before and found the crust to be pretty time consuming and messy so this time I just bought 2 whole wheat pizza crusts and saved my time. In the future when the girls are older we'll try making, kneading and shaping the dough ourselves. I really enjoyed watching Maddie and Charlotte put sauce, cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and onions on their pizzas and they had a blast doing it all themselves! Everyday for the next week Maddie asked if they could make pizzas for dinner. I'm on the prowl for easy meal ideas where they can be more hands on and I can be hands off! Oh, and by the way......the pizzas turned out to be very tasty! They did an excellent job.

They both ended up putting like a pound of cheese on their pizzas and eating about a cup of cheese each! lol

The chef is taste testing her mushrooms! :o)
