Planning to serve spaghetti with marinara, salad and some sort of garlic bread tonight, I surveyed my fridge for ingredients. Oh! A Domino’s box! With 3-4 pizza slices left over from last night’s lazy dinner splurge! Hmmm, pizza’s Italian like spaghetti… maybe I can dress up the normal ho-hum spaghetti dinner?!
Enter my cookie cutters. I ended up using a flower cookie cutter to cut shapes out of the pizza slices, topping them with a little extra Italian spices and grated parm cheese and baking them in the over at 350 degrees for 3-4 minutes. I also cut some flower leaves out of the extra pizza bits. Springtime Italian, mangia!
Yes, the fam was impressed (at least til they figured out what I did!). Adding something new and unexpected to a routinely served meal keeps the kiddoes on their toes and, most importantly, keeps them from noticing the same ol’, same ol’!
