What's for dinner? (12-13+14-10)

    Last night we had chicken drumsticks cooked in the crock pot all day long with salsa and corn. Yummy. Nine hours in the crock pot made for some extremely tender chicken. It was a super simple 5 minute prep dinner. It is definitely something I will do again.
    Tonight, finally success! I made a pizza with no sauce. The recipe for the crust was based on this one, which calls for either summer squash or zucchini. I used both summer squash and zucchini and also added a carrot and two cloves of garlic. My kids had no idea that they were eating vegetables. My son's radar was fooled! I would definitely suggest this to anyone who is trying to slip vegetables into the diet of their kids. It was the best pizza I had ever had, and my husband told me, "Make this whenever you want." I think this will become a weekly tradition at my house. I added pepperoni and shredded cheese to the top of the crust, and it was superb. I will experiment more each time I make it and let you know how it turns out.
   While I was making that I thought about the colors of the veggies, green,  yellow, and orange (almost a stoplight). Those would be fun veggies for kabobs!
