An Easy Meal While Having Fun Wrapping!

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser #HolidayMadeSimple where easy meals are made. All opinions are mine alone.

I often feel guilty that I do not like to wrap presents. I like the pretty paper and matching bows and love seeing how others become so creative, but the actually doing I just don’t love. I did not get this from my mom who loves to wrap and always goes over and above. It must have skipped a generation because my boys love to wrap. And I let them do it all!

California Pizza Kitchen

This week to plan ahead, I headed to Walmart to grab a CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN Crispy Thin Crust Frozen Pizza in BBQ Chicken flavor for an meal to make while we gathered together for a day of wrapping. Made with premium ingredients like vine-ripened tomatoes, Fontina cheese, and extra virgin olive oil, it was something quick and easy and a food I knew they would all like because I didn’t want any complaints during our fun!

We made an afternoon of it and this weekend was perfect because it was a snowy day and we were snuggled inside. We popped the pizza in the oven for an easy meal. I placed all boxes that needed to be wrapped on the table along with wrapping paper, bows, scissors, tape.

My two younger boys need me to pre-cut the paper to the right size and it is extra handy when I cut tape strips ahead for them to easily grab. Other than that, I basically let them go! I’d be called over to help tighen corners or for an extra tricky item, but otherwise they do a pretty good job.

There was all smiles when the pizza was done, an added bonus for all of that ‘work’!




I even have an Instagram video of a little live action!

Do you ever have a flavorful moment where an easy meal is needed?

Do you like to wrap presents or is it just me?!


I will tell you that having yummy food always makes everything better. 🙂
