Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

We spent the last few days celebrating both the holiday and my oldest son’s 11th birthday.

Every year his birthday arrives faster and every year it’s a little bit sadder to barely glimpse the time zooming by at nanosecond speed…

I mean, eleven is tween territory. That’s both exciting (for the kid) yet terrifying (for me).

Kind of like a birthday party with a crowd of 11-year old boys. Exciting yet a tweensy bit scary.

Thankfully, we hosted the party at one of those huge indoor trampoline parks where you can literally bounce off the walls and Be Like Mike.

Such a great way to get those crazy boy energies out. And no messy cleanup for us. Which means more time to enjoy the party rather than working the day away.

Just like this One Pot Pizza Pasta. This recipe is so easy, leaves no messy cleanup, and gives you more time to enjoy the evening with your peeps. No fussing at the stove all evening.

And everyone has fun. It’s funny how dinner time can actually be fun when all the kids devour their meal without any nagging.

It’s even funnier when there’s only one pot to wash after the meal has been polished off with record speed. I could laugh out loud. I’m that cook that normally messes five pots per meal.
