Pizza...for Breakfast! Yum!

Everyone loves breakfast for dinner (especially kids), but what about pizza for breakfast? Since I had some pizza dough leftover from pizza night (we love homemade pizza at this house), I decided to give a breakfast pizza a whirl. 

I ended up making 2 versions: a grown up pizza with a runny egg (because I LOVE runny eggs) and a scrambled egg pizza for Wild Thing. 


I used Smitten Kitchen's breakfast pizza recipe as my inspiration, but for toppings I went with black beans, avocado and tomato (avocado and tomato went on after I took the pizza out of the oven). I haven't yet had success with homemade pizza crust. Instead I always use Von's/Pavillon's or Trader Joe's pre-made pizza dough found in the refrigerated section. It's affordable, and I like that they both have whole wheat pizza dough.

 

For Wild Thing's pizza, I didn't have any more crust, so I used a whole wheat tortilla. It has the same look and basic taste. He liked helping sprinkle the cheese on the tortilla. Plus, it's SUPER EASY: scramble some eggs, top a tortilla with cheese and put it in the microwave long enough to melt the cheese, then add the eggs on top. This breakfast pizza would even work as a quick breakfast on busy school mornings. (I find it's also a good way to use the leftover scrambled eggs from a previous morning when Wild Thing wasn't very hungry).

Pick a day to mix it up and do pizza for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. The kids will love it. 


Oh - and I have to share one last pizza idea, since it does happen to be Julia Child's 100th birthday -- here's a recipe for her Eggplant Pizzas from Kalyn's Kitchen. Turning eggplant into pizza might even get kids to actually eat eggplant. Heck, it might even get me to eat eggplant.

Happy Very Hungry Caterpillar Day: Celebrating 45 Years with Caterpillar and Butterfly Crafts from The Kid's Co-Op

March 20th is Very Hungry Caterpillar Day with celebrations and programs being held around the world to honor the 45th Anniversary of the book. 


We love The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so of course we're joining the fun. Plus, my youngest son's blog nickname is Caterpillar, after the book. Just as Wild Thing is my 4 year-old's nickname inspired by Where the Wild Things Are. 

Today, we'll be doing another Very Hungry Caterpillar Food Drive. We did our first one for Eric Carle's birthday last June and called it a Very Hungry Caterpillar Virtual Food Drive and loved hearing that the virtual part worked, as others were inspired by our online shares and also did VHC-inspired food drives.

P.S. The Very Hungry Caterpillar Virtual Food Drive post 
also features 40+ Activities Inspired by the Book, so you'll definitely want to check it out.
For our VHC-inspired food drive this time, Wild Thing will be helping me write the grocery list for food items to donate as we read the boo…

{A Season of Giving} 12 Days of Christmas: Celebrating through Giving

Stacy (the Great) of Kids Stuff World brought to my attention the 31 Days of Service/Giving Calender (and great e-book) from Mom It Forward. 

Having gotten to know Stacy really well through our joint Moms Fighting Hunger effort during Hunger Action Month, I was all too happen to jump on board and take on 12 Days of Christmas, the action prompt for Dec. 4th.


The e-book describes the prompt in this way:
Choose another family in your area to be the recipient of 12 days of gift giving. Try to think of a family that may be struggling financially, emotionally, or with health problems and might need a boost during the holiday season.E ach day, starting December 13, leave a gift anonymously on the doorstep of your chosen family. Involve the kiddos in your secret acts of service. Your gifts can relate to the “12 Days of Christmas” song verses (i.e. partridge in a pear tree, turtle doves, French hens, etc.) but it’s not necessary. Try to choose or provide handmade gifts, drawings or tre…

Ten for Tuesday: Activities for Fire Prevention Week

October 7-13 is Fire Prevention Week, so I am sharing 10 Fire Safety Crafts, Activities, and/or Books to help kids learn about fire safety and to encourage them to have some fun too! At our house, fire trucks and fire fighters always get Wild Thing excited so engaging with some new activities was a lot of fun.

1. Get Inspired through Books - We loved reading Alphabet Rescue and creating a fire truck from a juice box that we drove our letters around in, just like in the story. I have loaded up our library list with many of these other fire truck and/or fire safety books. Felix the Fire Engine gets great reviews and No Time for Flashcards has a comprehensive list of 20 firefighter books. I also have to share this great PreK Fire Safety Pack from Royal Baloo!

2. Make a Shape Fire Truck - We previously shared this great one from No Time for Flash Cards and here is another one from Teach Preschool.

3. Abstract Art Fire Trucks - Using red, black and yellow tape, Teach Preschool shares som…
