Pickle Face and Pizza

"We're gonna make it after all..." (cue Mary Tyler Moore theme song here). I think John woke up singing this song a couple of mornings ago and it has managed to stick in my head since. Need proof that we are indeed going to make it? Here you go:

Elise's "Pickle Face" was necessary in order to assist Daddy in the making of a bloody mary!

Need more proof? Well take this:
Does that look like the face of a child who is feeling better? I THINK SO!

What's that you say? Still not totally, 100% convinced? Well... the Lawrence kitchen is officially up and running again! Yes, friends, I fixed dinner last night! For someone who loves to cook/bake, this shouldn't seem like such a feat, but I haven't fixed a meal in DAYS, maybe even WEEKS!! It's just rather tricky to wash, chop, prepare, saute when there is a very sad face looking at you, pleading with you "Momma, please hold me". 

We had a simple meal of homemade pizza with a side of fresh organic green beans. The pizza dough can be found here. And the remaining ingredients included:
  • 1/2 can Muir Glen organic pizza sauce
  • 1/2 organic zucchini (quartered then thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 organic red onion (diced)
  • shredded cheese
  • fresh organic green beans - boiled then drizzled with balsamic vinegar

And for dessert? Homemade organic vanilla ice cream topped with organic strawberries and blueberries. Sorry, no picture. By the time I had the camera turned on, all that remained were a couple of grinning toddlers with ice cream mustaches. :)
