Sleepover = Pizza Night

I took the night off from cooking last night, which is nice sometimes. You always need that little break. My son Elvis had a sleepover with one of his friends so we decided to order pizza. Utah is definitely lacking in great pizza. My favorite here is The Pie Pizzeria. The only bad thing is they don’t deliver, so we have to pick it up. I think we are 6 blocks out of range from their delivery area. SO CLOSE!!!! But it was a fun and relaxing night. I just let the boys run wild… playing video games, swords, riding on the Power Wheel.

What fun things do you do for sleepovers with your kids? Do you have the sleepover completely organized or do you let the kids keep themselves busy? I would love to hear your ideas! 🙂


Chicken Fajitas

Here is another quick and easy meal that is great for the weekdays!

1lb chicken breast – cut into 1 inch pieces
1 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp chili powder (add more if you want more of a kick)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
1 red bell pepper – cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 green bell pepper – cut into 1/2 inch slices
1/2 red onion – cut into 1/2 inch slices
Sour Cream
Shredded Colby Jack
Spanish Rice

Cook Spanish rice according to box directions. While the rice is cooking, heat olive oil up in a large frying pan. Add chicken and cook until about 1/2 way done. Add in all spices (chili powder, garlic power, onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, cumin, salt & pepper). Stir seasonings into pan very well, ensuring chicken is covered. Then add red & green bell peppers along with the red onion. Reduce heat to medium low and cover with lid, occasionally stirring. Cook until the veggies reach your desired texture. When the rice and chicken are done, assemble fajitas with chicken, veggies, and any other toppings you’d like.
