Pizza Fun!

Saturday night we had some friends over for dinner and some fun for the kids! I got little aprons and hats for LO and her little friend C, and we sat back and watched 'em make pizza! It was SO cute! They had so much fun! And I was VERY pleased with myself for making homemade whole-wheat pizza dough, homemade pizza sauce, fresh, sauteed mushrooms (for topping), fresh chopped pineapple (also for topping), fresh grated mozzarella cheese, fresh sausage (purchased from the farmer's market that morning, also for topping -- I think you get the point), and a chocolate cake (turned disaster -- more on that later, maybe...) for dessert, consisting of a chocolate cake, chocolate mousse and chocolate frosting, all made from scratch with dark chocolate. I loved making everything fresh and from scratch, but even more than that I LOVED the fact that my wonderful husband took clean-up duty and was responsible for cleaning up the TONS of dirty dishes resulting from my homemade cooking/baking spree.

Anyway... here are some cute pics of my girl:







Oh, and I whipped up a lovely chocolate disaster for dessert (too embarrassing to share that story!) before our friends came over, and LO was quite the little helper (as seen below):

Fun times! :)
