I go food shopping once every two weeks. It’s a plan that has helped our family stay within our budget. But as we near day 12, 13, or 14, we find that our supply of food dwindles rapidly. We are often at bare bones, and sometimes, I need to get creative with meals to use up what we have on hand. My kids often joke that those throw-together-whatever-is-in-the-fridge meals are often the best.
I’m not sure that I have ever met a teenager who didn’t like pizza. My teens are no exception. While not a regular item on our meal menu, we do indulge in pizza occasionally. As a mom, I must admit that I do have a problem calling pizza a meal. There’s little to balance out the carbohydrate load, and any vegetables or meat that is added is minimal in amount or processed beyond recognition.
So today I decided to tackle this issue head on with my Sloppy Joe Pizza.
