How I Spent My Easter Vacation: Radish Pizza

We had a whirlwind Easter weekend which dropped me right off into a crazy week.  So before too much time passes and this becomes totally dated - Happy Belated Easter everyone!

Saturday morning, bright and shiny, we headed up to The Inlaws.  With only one minor delay when a fuel truck broke down behind our plane, so we couldn't back up and take off.  Know what's more fun than flying with an 18 month old? Being stuck on a plane not flying with an 18 month old.

As soon as we got in, Thatboy pulled us right into the Easter festivities with some Easter-Egg-Making.

Thatbaby loved spending time with his cousins.  He loves them so much and wants to do everything they do.

He was less impressed with some of the new friends we introduced him to.  I'm not sure how many of you read The Honest Toddler, but if you do you'll recognize that toddlers are not a fan of babies that might steal their parents' attention.  Thatbaby is living proof of this.

Thatbaby did discover he is a fan of Easter Egg Hunts.  He was the only participant this year since Thatniece and Thatnephew are too old, and the littler guests were too young.  So he had free range to gather as many eggs as he could.  And gather he did!

The smartest part of the trip was that this time we stayed at a hotel instead of with one of the inlaws.  And it was AWESOME.  Our room overlooked a river filled with koi.  Thatbaby was enthralled and spent as much time as he could outside watching the fish.  In fact, I was able to get him dressed in the morning by telling him he needed to put on clothes if he wanted to go out and see the fish.

Because we had our own space, we were able to set up a mini egg hunt for him on Sunday morning.  A trail of eggs that led to his Easter Basket. 

Which was filled with all sorts of goodies that he loved.

Sunday night we were back on a plane, heading home - after another delay, and Monday morning I was right back at work.

Tonight, however, marks the end of Passover.  Crazy week and it's only Tuesday!We always celebrate the return to normal eating with a pizza party.  This year we headed to our favorite pizza spot for pizza and popcorn.  But for you, I'll share one of our at home pizza recipes.  It's perfect for spring, or at least I think so, equating radishes and their spicy bite with spring vegetables. 

Radish Pizza
Pizza Dough
White Truffle Oil
1/2 lb radishes, thinly sliced
salt and pepper
1/2 cup parmesan, grated

  1. Preheat oven to 475. Roll out dough into a thin circle. 
  2. Brush the dough with white truffle oil.
  3. Place the radish slices evenly on the pizza.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste, then sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the entire pizza.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is golden.


  1. Pizza must be my middle name! I could eat this stuff every day! Love it!

  2. Looks like you had a great time!!! Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

  3. Awww I love that you guys celebrated Easter to it's fullest extent with ThatBaby!! And that pizza sounds awesome..it would totally get me to like radishes!

  4. That bunny is kind of scary. I love the picture of ThatBaby laughing on the couch! Yay for not having to stay with the inlaws -- maybe this is the start of a great new tradition.

  5. Sounds like it was a fun-filled weekend for everyone.
