Cooking up some fun

In light of my recent post on cooking with toddlers, I thought I'd share a fun meal we made for supper tonight -- funny face pizzas! 

They are made on bagel halves and faces designed from olives, mushrooms and peppers.  We hosted a couple neighbors to munch on these yummy treats with us!  Susie loved making them!  I've found homemade pizza is a REALLY good thing to have toddlers help with -- spreading sauce, sprinkling cheese and arranging toppings is difficult to mess up, and if it falls off, it's just on the tray.  The hardest part was convincing Susie not to eat all the olive eyes as they went on! :)

Cooking with her Strawberry Shortcake cookbook

Happy with the results!
Ready for the oven.  These faces look like something from a Roald Dahl book!

So cute! Maybe you should send the idea to the cooking channel. I would watch "cooking with Toddlers" : )

Thanks, guys! Susan -- haha! Yeah, that would be an original show, for sure! Maybe we could just guest star on somebody's show. . . I'd pick Rachael Ray or Giada. :)
