Today’s post is getting straight to the point – I am struggling with feeding my youngest son. He’s a freshman in high school, plays lacrosse, is on the drum line and is working towards his Eagle Scout. If those things were not enough, we have our family time and his church youth group activities. It seems like I drive from one end of the county to another for whatever he’s involved in. Now please understand – I love the choices he’s made regarding what he’s involved in. He’s making such great friends and is very, very happy, but…he needs to eat and eat well. With all the Hunter does, he’s got to have the right kind of fuel.


Breakfast and dinner are usually not a problem for me but it’s those in between times, you know, when you are running from one activity to another that becomes a problem. I have been trying to come up with yummy snacks that I can pack up and he can eat on the go and I finally found one that he LOVES.


These easy to make pizza rolls can be customized with your favorite ingredients, freeze beautifully and reheat in a snap. Friends, if you are struggling with keeping your kids rolling, I hope you’ll give this recipe a try…it will make them happy and bring a little comfort to a worried mama.
