& they made pizza

 the other day my sweet friend darby posted that she was 
whipping up a little corn, pesto, tomato pizza.
i was all over that one!

i was heading to the gym
( yes, you can tell this is riveting blog material at it's finest)
but since we had a tight schedule that day
i would need madi & caroline to finish it up for me.
i prepped everything & had it all ready 
for them to complete & then pop in the oven.




 i snapped a few pictures before i left.
even had caroline take one of me 
prepping the food
all pioneer woman style of course.




they are my two super helpers at home
so i headed out with confidence.
pulled in a hour or so later to a wonderful smelling kitchen
& a camera full of cute pics!

caroline had climbed up on chairs,
stood at funky angles
and gotten some great shots
full of pesto close ups & zoomed images of fresh mozzarella.

madison had chronicled caroline's incessant tippy toes stance
and the step by step process of putting the pie together.

the rest of the images are all theirs!

oh &
yes the pizza was great!
even though our wheat dough did not have a victorious outcome.
maybe preheating the oven for an hour
like bree said to
would have solved our problem.
but it was yummy
& i ended up with an unplanned blog post!

ta-da!













 (maybe we'll do a little knife- cutting- safety- inservice tonight)


 ( thank heavens her polish was all chippy. how little girl cute is that?)













my fave shot of the day.
while they shot fantastic shots
of their process,
i had the camera iso set for indoors.
so when they stepped outside for this one
the iso was wonky.
but i LOVE the end result!



delicious lunch
& sweet sister time project
all in one!
the end.

Yummm!!!! We are out having sushi right now, which I do not care for btw, and I wish I were having that pizza instead. I will pretend I am eating your yummy pizza with each bite of veggie sushi that I eat. Sigh!

That pizza looks yummy. We just bought stuff from Publix to make a pizza too - great minds think alike. However, my princess is PICKY. Ours will be very plain - cheese only. Your girls are adorable.

Louise said...

It looks so good, I live in a HOT, hot place, don't like to turn the oven on for five mins during the summer let alone an hour, I wonder if that dough would work well for grilled pizza.

Jodi said...

Looks delish and what a great "girlie" lunch! The girls did a great job with the pizza and the pictures!

I would definately love this pizza, my hunny and daughter; prob. not so much! Altho, I did get hunny to eat the oriental sald tho! :)
