Day 9 of Eating from the Pantry Challenge

We are at Day 11 of this challenge and I am starting to feel it now.  On our menu for dinner yesterday was homemade pizza.  No big deal very easy to make.  The problem I didn't want to make it.  All I wanted to do was just let everyone eat whatever they wanted or got out to eat.  Well, going out to eat was kind of going against what we were trying to do and that was save money.  Plus, we went out to eat the other night and used our entertainment money because we are so busy this week that we weren't going to use it anyways.
In all honesty, all I wanted was CEREAL....but of course we won't have that until the 14th when I go grocery shopping.  Thanks to my brother who mentioned to me yesterday that he was having Pizza Hut, it made me more eager to make dinner.  Nothing against Pizza Hut it really is my favorite pizza place but I started thinking about how much money it would cost and all the other unhealthy stuff they put in their food.  So I decided that I can make my own healthy version and only pay a couple dollars to make it. Well, I mentioned to my husband how I did not feel like making it but started it anyways.  After I started the dough and was kneading it my husband came into the kitchen and made the rest of the pizza.  LORD BLESS HIM!!! 

Please let me explain we have been married for a little over ten years and he has only made one dinner.  Now when I was deployed he did make dinner for our daughter but I don't count that because I wasn't there =)  I was so happy that I had to take pictures of him actually making dinner.  I was very thankful and I am truly blessed to have him as my husband. 

Here is Hubby trying to find the rolling pin (I was laughing so hard because I wouldn't tell him)

Hubby being so proud of his "masterpiece" not to sure about the pose though ;)

The challenge is going very well and I will be posting our menu for next week.  Thank you to everyone that commented and gave me some really good ideas for our menu.  I can't wait to try to them!!!
