Meals don’t have to be the standard meat and vegetables. It can be anything your heart desires. You can serve breakfast for dinner or even top of chicken with a side of waffles (they do in California restaurants!).

To make meal time more fun for everyone, quit thinking about what meals are suppose to be and think outside of the box.

Do you realize that left over waffles can make a really delicious sandwich for lunch? So can left over pancakes! Yes, the first time I did this, my children laughed hysterically and my husband looked at me like I had flipped my lid. It only took one bite for them to quit making fun of me and enjoy instead their meal.

So serve your dinner salad on a pizza crust, because salad pizza with vegetable dip topping is really good. And instead of thinking that “it’s just not right”, think about what else you could put on that pizza crust… Apple Crisp Pizza makes a yummy dessert!
