what I’ve learned ย so far this summer…

my kids can sleep like the dead

they love to listen to their music LOUDLY

our house is the one they prefer to hang out in, and I should just expect to have extra kids at all hours

pizza, nachos, and tater tots are a teens three main food groups

and

teenagers can eat A LOT!

I know I feed ย my kids all year long, but now that they are home in the afternoons, I am shocked by how much they eat

an hour after breakfast and they are looking for a snack, then lunch, followed by more snacks

snacks before football and after football, before dance, after swimming, even snacks on bike rides

my kitchen has never seen SO much activity

and one week in, I’m already over the kitchen messes

so today’s lunch was meant to fill them up and keep them full, and hopefully keep them out of the kitchen at least for an hour or two

Ingredients

  • 1 bag frozen tater tots
  • pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • pepperoni

Instructions

  • pre-heat oven to 400 (or according to your package)
  • place tater tots on a rimmed baking sheet
  • top with sauce (I used 15 ounces for the entire bag)
  • add cheese and pepperoni and any other pizza toppings
  • bake 20 - 25 minutes (cheese will be melted and bubbling and the tater tots cooked through)

this is definitely more of an idea and less a recipe -my bunch prefers their pizza pretty plain, just cheese and pepperoni, but top your totchos with your favorite pizza fixings

enjoy!
