Welcome to another great week of Menu Planning! Last week was another super busy week for me. I really hope I can have a little time to play catch up soon. I absolutely love being busy, but it drives me crazy when I can’t be organized while being busy. Our meals were good, but I wasn’t able to stick to the schedule very well. We had lots of baseball games and a trip to Chicago to take Casey for his check-up with the Doctors, all went well.
So, this week, I’m hoping to get back on track. We have a little break with Nick’s travel baseball team, and Casey’s team only has 2 games this week.
Casey turns 13 on Saturday! So we will be having a little party with a few friends, stay tuned for some fun cupcakes and of course, great food.
Slowly but surely, I’m getting all the recipes posted from Andrew’s Graduation Party. Today I’m sharing this yummy Fruit Pizza. I haven’t made Fruit Pizza in many years, but when I recently saw Cris’ recipe on her blog Goodeness Gracious, I knew that I wanted to make it for the Graduation Party. It was a hit with everyone.
A refreshing fruit pizza recipe to serve this summer - from HoosierHomemade.com
15 minCook Time
- 1 1/2 cups butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoon Almond extract
- 1 1/2 cups Marshmallow Fluff

- Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
