Just Breathe – Recipe: Thai Chicken Pizza

One of the things that I love to do with the littles is blow bubbles.  If you have not tried it, you should.  It is so relaxing and fun.  Deep breath….and just blow.

The breathing, the laughing, the listening to the, “Wow, that was a big one.” and “Look at all of the bubbles, Momma!”  There is something about it that is just magic in its own way.

So, that is what we did for fun yesterday afternoon.  I put a big quilt down, found the bubbles, and had fun taking some time to just breathe with the littles.

It was a perfect end to a perfect weekend.  Simple. Family. Fun.

It ranks right up there with pizza night.  Because it is so near and dear to our hearts, it is rare that we depart from our normal Friday night pizza and movie night.  But, sometimes I get a craving for something and need it right then and there.  Such was the case when I could not decide what to make with the chicken that I had in the crock pot.  I glanced through my Pinterest boards and landed on this Thai Chicken Pizza by How Sweet It Is and this one by Annie’s Eats.  I adapted the recipes slightly based on what I had in the pantry and refrigerator because I knew that we needed pizza that night….and again on Friday.

    This sounds really good – I’m a vegan but I love anything that’s “Thai-style”. ^^
