Dinner was really good last night. When the kids and all of their friends keep coming back for more, I think it's a keeper.

Mexican Pizza:
Substitute one cup of flour for a cup of corn meal in your pizza dough recipe. Mine calls for 5 cups of flour normally.
1 1/2 cup mild salsa + 1 small can tomato sauce, blended until smooth
shredded jack or cheddar cheese (about 2 cups per pizza)
sliced olives
drained and rinsed pinto beans
left-over taco meat (any Mexican food meat would be good)
cilantro (opt.)
Any other mexican inspired ingredients would be good too.

Bake and serve. I topped mine with lettuce and tomatoes. The kids had it plain. The crust was the best part. Yummy

Famliy Night was fun. We did Cupcake Wars. Roy was at work, or we would not have done this. Each kid made a different flavor cupcake that represented a country. Our nice neighbors were our jugdes. With a basic cake recipe split into 4 parts, we ended up with a chocolate stuffed and topped "France" cupcake (Becca with Hannah as 'Su Chef'), a cinnamon churo "Mexican" cupcake (Joey), a maple vanilla creme "Canada" cupcake (Andrew) and a smores "American" cupcake (Will). I took pictures with my phone, but I don't know how to transfer photos to blogs. It was so fun. The smores cupcakes won. They were really good (William had a lot of help from yours truely).
