My friend Cheryl made out a 30 by 30 list of 30 things that she would like to accomplish by the time she is thirty… and like any good blogger she polled her loyal fans for ideas. Since she is a PICKY high-maintenance eater I suggested that she eat Vietnamese food with me to try something new… and so WE DID! 🙂

We celebrated St Pattys two days late… with the boys. Riley had green day in class, complete with a green shirt, green hat, green watch, and a green bow for his baby named, “Baby.” And his favorite color is green, which he reminds us everytime we play I SPY. He will say, “I spy something green… the cup, or the grass, or whatever it is. He doesn’t really get the not telling what you spy part of the game yet. And then we made PIZZA!
If you’re anything like me when you log on to your yahoo/msn/or other random home page you would be drawn to the enticing link promising quick and easy meal ideas at the click of your mouse. But so many times it all turns out to be a sad sad lie. For instance: breakfast pizza.
Who wants to eat breakfast pizza anyway… unless it’s the straight from the fridge ice-cold piece of thin crust pepperoni from the night before??? This recipe is like so many other false promises I’ve clicked on, ie: not quick, not easy, not worth the forced feeding to my children. Not to harp on some one else’s ingenuity… I might be wrong, it might not take an hour of prep time to cook bacon, make dough, cut and roll said dough into tightly formed balls and then cook the dough and then fry an egg on it. OK, say for all of those normal people out there… this is how we do it in my house! (That was me presuming that I am normal.)
4 Yukon gold or white potatoes
If you don’t know how to make mashed potatoes: boil until potatoes easily cut through with a fork, drain out all but a little water and then place in a bowl, mix butter and mash with a fork, then add milk and beat them to a pulp (or the consistency you like) and add salt and pepper to taste.
1 roasted chicken (all grocery stores have them fresh already cooked and ready to reheat in the oven)
