Normally I am a good cook. However, where Jared is concerned I have left a lot a little to be desired. The first time I made lasagna it was slightly runny.. ok ALOT runny. Last night I made pizza. PIZZA people... it's not that hard! I worked at Pizza Hut for how long? Then Pizza Guys for a little while. I should be able to make pizza in my sleep! But last night was not my best pizza night. I probably left it in the oven about 10-15 minutes too long. The crust was dark brown, not the crispy golden brown like every.other.pizza I have ever made. When you tap on the crust and it kind of sounds like a rock.. it is probably going to taste like a rock. The cheese wasn't quite the gooey bubbly goodness it should have been. And the bacon? Well, we just won't go there.

Then there's the garlic bread. Garlic bread and I have had a love-hate relationship since I was a kid: I was once in charge of watching the garlic bread in the broiler while my mom was in a different room. I remembered the garlic bread when I noticed smoke pouring out of the oven.
Fortunately there was no smoke involved this time around. There was ,however, black edges. Dark black, crumbly, non-perfect edges. Atleast the inside bread part was still edible. :)

Finally the salad.. I know! One would think "how can you possibly mess up a salad?!". Think of who you are dealing with though.. ME! Lettuce went well, radishes cooperated. Cucumbers? Not so much. I dropped one little piece which got a chuckle out of the boy standing next to me. Then I dropped an entire half on the floor. Nice! Then dressing was basically ranch dressing soup.. How does that happen when you follow the directions exactly?Its not hard. Powder from the packet, milk, mayo. That's what I get for not just buying a bottle of already made dressing!

With all that said, he ate it. Every bite he had on his plate (including the rock hard crust of the pizza).

I guess my bestie, Jessica, was right when she told me to just let the inner "Martha" go. I'm trying!

** Just a side note.. Here's a little shout out to Summer and Sarah to say HI. Thanks for making a Jess and Shannon Blog fan club! (just kidding)**

Agreed! That is TOTALLY sweet that he ate all the food, even if it wasn't the best!
