I would love to tell you that I feel like a superhero mom every day, but the fact is, I am just a real mom trying to get through the ever changing and challenging seasons of parenthood.  Between balancing my new career, the kid's activities, school and life in general it seems as though this mom brain of mine is mush at times.  Especially when it comes to dinner and planning fun family time!

We always eat dinner at our kitchen table with the kids, we consider it family time.  And as the kids are getting older it is the perfect time of the day to ask how their day was.  Over the years, I have found that the kids really enjoy when I make dinner fun or different.  Its the little things that make them happy.  So, while this mom brain of mine is on overload and I am trying to figure out how to make dinner fun (and easy, let's be honest!) I decided to throw together a Family Pizza Night party.

Now, remember I said easy?  Seriously, this is so easy.  I simply pick up some fun napkins and plates, makes doing dishes super easy too, and our favorite frozen pizza from Red Baron.  This pizza night was complete with a special dessert treat that again was so easy but really made the kids enjoy our family pizza night.  Friends, I call this Family Pizza Night a real mom win!!

We love Red Baron frozen pizzas and usually have a few in our freezer for those evenings that dinner plans just don't get made. Again, real moms, we are imperfect but make it work. We all have different favorites when it comes to pizza toppings but we always grab the Red Baron® Classic Crust pizzas.  They do not taste like frozen pizza at all, they taste homemade with out me having to make them!

When I surprised the kids with a Family Pizza Night after a long week of everyday swimming lessons for the kids, back to school prep and lots of work for me, they were so happy.  Seeing them excited for their paper plates, fun napkins, delicious pizza and yummy dessert treat made me smile.  Moming it can hard but finding the great moments like this that build memories without a ton of work, planning and money is the best!

Now, let me share the perfect pizza night dessert!  These yummy churro sticks are so easy to make and delicious!  They remind me of our trip to Disney, churros are a must, of course!

So here's the deal.  Finding ways to make dinner and life easier is the way I get through this mom life!  I have earned a lot of Baroness patches through out these last 7 years of motherhood and I wear those with pride!  A real mom takes pride in their patches that might seem silly but help you sleep better at night.  My favorite is my "Cool Mom Has A Pizza Party For Dinner" patch and of course my "I survived my son losing his mind over having to wear jeans"!  Yes, that is a real one.

  6. Lovin' the churro sticks. My husband would adore these dipped in dulce de leche. We have pizza night Fridays too! My kids get excited about it when they watch the short episode of Jamie Oliver and his kids making pizza on YouTube. It's hilarious, you've gotta check it out.

  9. Thats such a quick and easy churro recipe! I used to love theme nights when I was little. My family and I were big on game nights! I used to always want to play monopoly because it was long and I got to stay up later. Lol!

  10. What fun and easy churros! I admit I add a side of applesauce and call it dinner. Sure I'm using a Red Baron pizza but sometimes spending the time together is more important than spending it cooking from scratch.

  11. I remember when we had kids at home and pizza night was a must! Especially when you have teenagers in the house, frozen pizza is such a great alternative. Quick, easy, inexpensive, and everybody loves it. Love the idea of cinnamon stick churros as a sweet treat at the end! x
