Todays’ Treat

My kids are like any others, they love a treat, but I’m a frugal crunchy mum at heart, so I try to make treats I feel good about giving them.

Tonight we had a pizza picnic party sitting in the lounge watching Family Feud. And my kids loved it! For them, homemade pizza is fun and tasty. Yes they still request Maccas on occasion, but it’s neither in the budget or locality.

I’m still working on getting the refined sugar and processed foods out of our diet, and I don’t know that I’ll ever give up my caffeine or chocolate entirely. But that’s OK with me. My kids deserve a treat sometimes, and heck, so do I.

  1. I love homemade pizza. My kids are ages 2 and 3 and they are just starting to help me in the kitchen. They would love to make homemade pizza. I have been experimenting with different types of flours lately to try to get more health benefits rather than just empty white or wheat flour. And as for caffeine…. I will never give up caffeine either. Hey, coffee and chocolate have antioxidants right??
    P.S. What is maccas?


    1. Maccas is Aussie slang for McDonalds. Not something I want the kids to eat, but thankfully we don’t have one here. And one would have to kill me to pry the Cadburys from my hands. Chocolate is my friend
