My kids handed in their pizza and Kringle fund raiser sheets today. We sold $350 worth of homemade pizzas and Racine Kringles. We eat a lot of pizza!
Every Sunday, after going to church, our kids expect a frozen pizza. This has been a quick lunch every Sunday for as long as I can remember. As our family has grown, something strange has happened. We have more leftover pizza than every before! Why? My kids love pizza!
Instead of slicing the pizza in the quick and easy 8 slices, I've starting slicing the pizza into 12 slices. What a difference in our pizza consumption. For some reason, the kids all need 2 slices, but they haven't noticed that the slices have gotten smaller. They never want another slice after two.
It may be a psychological thing, gotta have two slices. It may be a physical thing, I'm full after two slices. Or it could be a combination of both. I tend not to eat any of the pizza except for my little guy's crust since I rationalize that it's "way to tough" for him to eat.
I'll continue to slice the pizza in 12ths and possibly try to even slip in some broccoli, mushrooms or even better...peas, on the slices. Wonder if they'll notice.
