As it is with most families, fall is the busiest time of year for us. Between sports, youth group, and work we have to fit in Back to School Night, Book Fair, and Football games! It’s a whirlwind! To help my family slow down for a minute for dinner I try to make it fun and inclusive so everyone will enjoy dinner and focus on the family time together instead of how to hide your broccoli. We do “Family choice” night which usually ends up being macaroni and steak fingers. You see, I have a picky eater and a “Try anything” eater and what one will eat, the other is sick of having for the 101st time. Those picky eaters… whew… are hard to cook for! For a recent Family Choice Night, I broke out the Flatbread Mix samples that I received from Krusteaz to do a make your own pizza night! Yeah!
I am secretly impressed with myself for taking out that part many of us dread: Thinking of a dinner that is healthy, filling and pleasing to everyone, even the picky eater. In all actuality, this time, Krusteaz is the winner by offering choices that everyone will enjoy and that are so versatile you can’t go wrong. The Krusteaz Flatbread Mixes come in Italian Herb, Garlic & Onion, and Whole Wheat. There are recipes on the box and online at Krusteaz.com. The recipe I chose was bacon, apple and cheese flatbread because everybody knows that bacon makes it better. My picky eater had cheese and my more adventurous tried the goat cheese and spinach recipe and for dad… he eats whatever… Delightful!!
I think the best part of this fun evening was that they enjoyed family time in the kitchen making the dough, choosing their own toppings, watching the cheese bubble to perfection and then proudly devouring their own prized pizza. Score one for mom! Thank you Krusteaz!!
