Back to school time always brings a change of routine around our house. As homeschoolers, we school all year round, but we always start the new schooling year in August. This means earlier bed times for the kids and longer movie nights for Jamie and I. I had been working on writing projects for several nights in a row, so last night I put it all aside to watch Duck Dynasty and enjoy some DiGiorno pizza strips with my husband.
I put the younger kids down to bed early, as they were sleepy and not feeling well, and Lynzie held down the fort while I ran out and grabbed some dipping strips at Walmart. I'd seen these in the pizza aisle before, but hadn't tried them. DiGiorno is one of our favorite brands of pizza, though, so I knew we'd enjoy them.
I came home to find the kids watching their favorite show, I Love Lucy. That's usually what they pick for their movie nights, but one can only take so much Ricky Ricardo. Then again, one can only take so much Willie Robertson... Still, it's quality marriage time, right?
The dipping strips box gives microwave directions, but since we cook everything in the oven, I stuck them in at 375º. I put the dipping strip package in a pot of water and let it warm on the stove.
Before we headed to the back of the house to have our movie night, Lynzie took a picture of us. I'm glad the kids can see how important it is for Dad and I to have our date nights---even if we don't actually go anywhere!
It was nice to take a break from writing for the night and have a little pizza party with my husband. Although I've been hinting for weeks that I want to watch Jane Austen's, Emma, I'm happy to say I survived Uncle Si and enjoyed our DiGiorno, too!
