Youth Workers Hate Pizza

     Youth workers hate pizza. At least I do, for now anyways. It's the all too often appearance of cheap pizza in youth ministry that has killed it for me.  Pizza at campus clubs, pizza at student leader meetings, pizza at youth events, pizza at youth worker meetings. Get the idea?
     Occasionally, a great more-than-$10 for a large REAL pizza served by a man named Mario in a restaurant with fake grapes and wine bottles hanging from the ceiling is appreciated.  In fact, such a pizza is enjoyed and devoured by my family and I.  Even then, I start to hate Pizza again. Pizza quickly contributes to the FAT youthleader problem just waiting silently in the wings to make a comeback to my body. So herein lies the secret to being a busy mom of 3, who is married AND works full time as a woman in youth ministry. The secret to not hating pizza? The secret to eating a healthy dinner WITH my family?  The secret  is this...MEAL PLANNING.
     So here is a yummy meal plan to keep Pizza off my table this week. This is a full grocery list with the meals and recipes below. This is courtesy of the SAY MMM app on Evernote. Enjoy!
