DIY Pizza Night

Sigh; the bane of every SAHM’s day would be the shows their kids get attached to. Most of Jam’s don’t bother me, but Cailou is a love/hate thing. I feel that he has taught a lot of good things (beig kind to others, sharing, kindess to animals, being the big brother, etc) but sometimes the twinge of Cailou’s voice is just not bearable…
Today he was watching on PBS, and they made Pizza’s with the twins, which inspired tonight’s dinner:

Magic Healing Soup

Magic Healing Soup - a mending formula that is stuffed with super-food-fixings | @Emmmmerz

You’re sick with the flu and need something to warm you up, this Magic Healing Soup is the solution.
It’s a cross between a vegetable soup and cabbage soup that is light yet revitalizing and scrumptious. It’s a mending formula that is stuffed with super-food-fixings that offer you extra nutrition to speed recovery. The taste is so tantalizing you’ll want multiple helpings, and you won’t need to feel regretful about it! Even better, the most troublesome part of this recipe is preparing the vegetables. From that point, it’s simply dump and stew.


Cheeseburger soup

Ode to a cheeseburger what a wonderful thing
With pickles, onions tomatoes and cheese
I’m easy to please
With its buns and seeds it has no needs
Except to fill you up even if you get stuck
And yell oh shucks!
With its cousin the French fry
It tells no lies
With ketchup in your right
and the last fry in your left
Its just the burger on your plate
It truly is impossible to hate
