Better Together



This post is sponsored by BC Better Together- Hands on Cook Off Campaign, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Family time is really important since my husband is away a lot for work, so when we are all together, we tend to make family together time a high priority. And that includes everything from doing chores to cooking/prepping meals.

If you have been following our blog for quite some time, you’ll see that we love cooking, baking and having the kiddos involved even though it may take a whole lot longer rather than doing it myself. The whole process of having everyone have a task to get a meal going is so important.

I wanted to share with you an incredible campaign happening here in BC called “Better Together BC". This campaign encourages families to have fun and enjoy preparing and cooking a meal together, not necessarily with just your family but also with the people around you. Speaking as a teacher, modeling behaviour is a great way for children to learn from. After all, our experiences shape the way we go about things. I cannot stress enough the important benefits of eating together, besides the obvious of the nutrition value and filling your bellies, it’s a time to disconnect from the outside world and connect again.


Most evenings we decide on what we’d like to have for dinner, grab all the ingredients out and get prepping. On this particular night the kiddos really wanted pizza. Usually I’d make my own crust and everything, but being 5 months pregnant and solo parenting this week meant making scratch made crust was out of the question so we picked up a pre-made crust at the grocery store. We already had the rest of the ingredients at home. We made the kiddos 4 meat pizza. We loaded the pizza crust with some homemade sauce I made weeks ago and added tons of cheese, bacon, pepperoni, ground beef and salami. Baked it in the oven and within 20 minutes we had a delicious meal for the three of us.
