Ever pinpoint your essential talents? The things that you are best at? It’s quite an exercise. I’m not good at cleaning effectively (you should see my mother and mother-in-law, they are wizards at cleaning!), or keeping my closet organized, or combing my kids hair (I can hear somebody out there thinking, “obviously!”). I’m not good at making lists. I make them, but then I lose them. On that note, don’t get me started about my sock pile. It’s sent shivers down many of a friends’ spines (Shannon, you know that you are out there…). However, I do have my strengths. I am very, very good at improvising. Now, you might not be too impressed with this skill, but you should.
One night last week I completely ruined dinner. So, I had three starving kids (my nephew had joined us) and no back-up plan. What a great night for Savage Pizza.
Make a regular pizza, forgot to buy back-up food, don’t grease the pan, forget about it in the oven until it’s perfectly crisp, and then delicately chisel the pizza off the pan. This should create a massive mess. Serve family style without plates, no napkins, and maybe with something gross like Cool Aid and Doritos. Enjoy!
