Yes! Friday nights in our house are movie (netflix or xfinity on-demand) and homemade pizza (usually your hawaii’n). My son especially loves that he does NOT have to set the table. win-win!


That pizza looks amazing!!! And loved hearing you say this – it’s a cherish weekend ritual in my house when a good movie sounds like the perfect dinner accompaniment. Have a great weekend!

We have lots, but Saturday night pizza night with homemade pizza, salad and brownies is a favorite. One day I hope my boys invite their friends over. We even do it when we are traveling to Nana’s and Grandma’s and when we rent a condo.


Growing up we always had pizza on the floor in the living room and called it a “Pizza Picnic.” It was a special thing we did each week that I always looked forward to.


My husband and I call Thursdays “Best night of the week.” It’s the one night I don’t cook during the week and we get some kind of take out and eat it in front of the TV. It’s fun to talk about what we are going to get that night and it’s a guaranteed plans-free evening where we just enjoy relaxing– plus no dishes! Can’t wait for it to be part of my future children’s rituals as well.
