At our house we love us some pizza, and I mean LOVE!
My favorite part of pizza has to be that everyone eats it. I don’t have to worry about Emily not liking dinner, or begging the kids to eat more of their food. I make it, we eat it, and everyone is full and happy at the end of the meal. This is how I wish every meal would go, sadly that is not always the case. So much for my unrealistic, naive expectations of the picture perfect family dinner every night.
About a year or so ago I started making Pizza on a regular basis. That changed to being almost every Sunday night and some how that morphed into what we now call “Pizza Sunday”. This is our weekly family time that we can always count on. Everyone has a job and pitches in to get dinner done.
I love that on Sunday nobody asks “Mom, whats for dinner?” X 50 instead they excitedly squeal in their high pitch voices “It’s pizza Sunday” They know it is our night, they look forward to it and they love it.
It isn’t fancy, overly structured or glamorous. It is just about being a family and being together. I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to end the week.
Does your family have a weekly tradition?
