They have a white crust and a whole wheat crust--I picked up two whole wheat doughs. Abby and I did pretty good walking around Trader Joe's without flinging too much into the cart. :) We did decide to pick up some cheese--as we really didn't have any at home.
The first thing we picked up, since Abby pointed it out, was cave-aged Gruyere.
Yea, this seems pretty random for a 2-year-old to point out.
I completely agree.
But I'll let ya in on her reasoning--it was pink. Yes, pink cheese.
You'd think it was a lock to make it in our cart. But as I kept scanning the cheese fridge, I found something a little more enticing: smoked Gouda. I also picked up some crumbled Feta, which happens to be my absolute favorite cheese. At home I also had black olives, green olives, fresh mushrooms (at Kyleigh's request if you can believe it), fresh minced garlic, fresh chopped purple bell peppers, fresh chopped white bell peppers, and sliced fresh grape tomatoes. If your mouth isn't watering by now, it should be. :)
So I had picked up two ready-to-bake packages of whole wheat pizza crust for all four of us. One got divided into two unequal parts for the girls' pizzas--the reason being so they could top their own pizzas themselves.
Then Nate and I shared the second.
You can tell which half is mine. haha
Let's break it down.
I know I usually make a fun dessert, but somehow making the pizzas took way longer than had I made the pizza dough on my own. Go figure.
The movie of the week? Nate recorded a movie for the girls on our DVR earlier this week. Anyone ever seen 'Hoodwinked'? It's a super cute movie and I definitely recommend it. My favorites are probably the 'Fletch' references. (You remember 'Fletch' and 'Fletch Lives' don't you? With Chevy Chase? Okay, well, if not, that's something for another time.) It's like a spoof off of a lot of popular grown-up movies with a fun story-line of its own. You should check it out.
So I didn't have any spare time for dessert. But there were no complaints coming from the living room. I mean, seriously, who doesn't love Oreos?? And it also works for me that we rarely have Oreos in the house--so it is quite a treat when they can be found in our pantry.
Cupcakes are coming soon! I promise!!
