Easy Dinner for Practice Nights

One of the hardest things for me as a rodeo mom is dinner time. What usually happens is the kids get home from school and have a snack and then we are rushing to get home work done so we can practice.  At 8:00 or later we are rushing to get home to put away horses eat dinner and get in bed just so we can do it all over again.  Here is an easy meal that can be prepared ahead and then thrown together in the end.

Dutch Oven Pizza

Rhodes bread dough (1 loaf per Dutch oven)
Pizza sauce (1 can per pizza)
Toppings of your choice
Mozzarella cheese
Charcoal briquettes
12-14 in Dutch oven
1. Line Dutch oven with tin foil. Spray with a thin layer of cooking spray. Spread 1 loaf of dough in bottom of Dutch oven. Add sauce and toppings your choice. Put lid on Dutch oven.

2. Start charcoal and then go saddle horses. The coals are ready when they turn grey. Line 15-20 coals evenly in a circle and set Dutch oven on top then add 20-25 coals on the top of the Dutch oven. More coals on top then on bottom.
3.  Bake 25-45 minutes to cook depending on how hot your coals are.  Check every 10 minutes to avoid burning. If you see a hot spot redistribute the coals.

This can be cooking while you are practicing.  The arena works great because of the sand and coals. Clean up is easy!
