Motherhood is hardly a glamorous gig. Of course, there are moments, where the stars are aligned and everyone is calm, quiet & happy. But those are few and far between. Most days around here involve the kids running laps around the house and/or throwing dolls across the living room. There is usually some sort of food that is burning on the stove top and I’m usually trying to get dinner on the table, while also tackling the laundry pile & writing a blog post. All while attempting to maintain my sanity! Yes, folks, motherhood is all about a juggling game.

However, I have learned some tips and tricks over the years to make my life a bit easier on those hectic days. One such hack has to do with dinner. I can always whip together a delicious, wholesome meal thanks to Red Baron® Classic Crust Pepperoni Pizza. The whole family loves the great taste of this pizza and I can go from freezer to table in under 20 minutes! Score! To go along with the pizza, I like to serve some bread sticks paired with a homemade Garlic Rosemary Dipping Sauce- keep reading for the full recipe.

Just last week, I had one of those days, where everything seemed to go awry. Early in the morning, I realized that the fridge was empty so I went grocery shopping. I came home carrying a ton: multiple bags of groceries, the cumbersome pile of mail, and my water bottle (I always bring my bottle with me). I had no free hands so I had to shut the car door with my foot. Yes, this was going to be a long day…

Early in the afternoon, the kids decided to dive into my glitter stash. They thought it would be fun to have a fairy dust fight between their dolls. The result? My glitter all over the floor. While trying to sweep up the mess, they started pulling me in two directions. My oldest wanted me to sit down and draw with her. My youngest wanted me to go play with her dollhouse. Sometimes I have to remind them that there is only one mommy and they have to be patient. Yes, this was definitely one of those days…

By dinnertime, I was trying to multi-task as usual. While stirring my Garlic Rosemary Dipping Sauce on the stove (keep reading for the recipe), I was also curling my hair (tonight was a date night) and catching up on some e-books on my tablet. Is it bedtime yet? I’m exhausted…

Have you had crazy mom experiences, too? My favorite wingmom, the Baroness, is trying to connect with other moms in celebrating the wild realities of motherhood. As moms, we tackle so much in a given day. Take mealtime off your plate by serving Red Baron for dinner! During a recent trip to Walmart, I picked up two of my family’s favorite flavors: Red Baron® Classic Crust Pepperoni Pizza and Red Baron® Classic Crust Supreme Pizza.
