Double The Oven for the Holidays!

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
The holidays are coming in the blink of an eye.  I was skimming through the TV channels today to look for a cute Halloween movie to watch with the kids and instead stumbled upon ELF!  I thought I had a few more weeks till I had to start worrying about the parties and holiday cooking, I was wrong.

I finally found a Halloween movie for the kids but instead of snuggling up for the movie, I started creating menus in me head.  Thanksgiving, friendsgiving, family Christmas parties, Christmas Eve, Christmas dinner, exc.  The holidays calls for a LOT of cooking!  And every year I battle the same problem, so many things to cook and not enough oven space.
On Thanksgiving we have a large turkey.  On Christmas we have a large ham.  Both of these call for hours of cooking time while simultaneously taking up an entire oven.  When I plan for lasagna, casseroles, baking, and more the oven space causes anxiety every time I plan on hosting.

I want to be able to have Italian cookies baking, lasagna heating up, and my turkey turning golden brown all at the same time.

A Fun and Easy Pokemon Toy Party ~ Poke Ball Pizza Recipe!

Pokemon Party Toy Poke Ball
Are your kids obsessed with Pokemon?  Mine are!  The beginning of the school year brought home a group of little Pokemon hunting fans.  Now everyday I hear about the different Pokemon they want to catch, train, and battle.
Ok, I’ll admit that I’ve even downloaded the game, telling my husband “its just to see what they are talking about”  meanwhile I’m catching Pokemon on the way to the bathroom at the beach, shhhh.
Pokemon Toy Party Tomy Toys
Since moving to Florida, I’ve been trying to do extra little surprises with the kids to keep them from getting homesick.  So when I was given the opportunity to host a Pokemon Toy Party, I was all over that idea!  I set up a cute little party last weekend and the kids had a blast battling Pokemon, making Poke Ball Pizza, and drinking Pikachu Lemonade.

Our Pokemon Toy Party package came with Tomy Throw ‘n’ Pop Poke Balls and several packs of Tomy Pokemon Action Pose Figures which had us set for fun activities.

I also had the kids create Poke Ball Pizza for lunch out of frozen personal size pizzas, black olives, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni.  My kids could live off pizza alone and be happy so this was a blast for them.

The kids battled with their favorite Pokemon all afternoon, and are excited to try to collect them all in the future!

Fast and Easy Poke Ball Pizza
Take a frozen personal size pizza and create the black line and circle across the middle of the pizza with black olives.

Then add pepperoni to the top of the pizza.

Lastly add extra Mozzarella cheese to the bottom.

Cook in the toaster oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

That’s it super simple and fun for the kids to create!
