Like P.F. Chang’s, only different

Like pizza, only smaller



Jan 4. – Schwann’s mini-pizzas, cooked from frozen, around 4pm.

She and her sister have been binging on The Lego Movie game for the Wii U since Christmas; it maxes out at 2 players, so this was the first time they weren’t hogging both remotes so I could play, too. Around 3:30 it occurred to me that I was pretty hungry and hadn’t eaten anything more than a peanut granola bar all day, so that led to mini-pizzas.
