Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack... Repeat. There are days when I’m not exciting about having to prepare another meal. Eating is important, I know, but its nice to have a break sometimes... even if its only for one meal. This is mini pizza recipe is one that the kids can completely make themselves!

There are many PADS programs available all over with some even supplying permanent housing and supportive services for their…Continue
