California Pizza Kitchen in Salt Lake City

It was Memorial Day Weekend and it was still dumping snow! Will our trails EVER dry?!
Bored with home-cooking and crafts, I shoved everyone into the car and headed to Salt Lake City. It was going to be a day of California Pizza Kitchen (aka CPK) and The Discovery Gateway Children's Museum at the Gateway Mall! CPK is enormous value for your buck, especially when you bring the kids.
Activity Books from CPK rule! Generous colored pages of tic-tac-toe, mazes, coloring pages, etc. and a set of primary colored crayons are given to each kid along with a selection of delicious kiddie meals for $5.49 a head. I love this place.
The dishes come with drinks and free refills, btw. My kids still order just water.
Fusilli and Meat Sauce.  Perfectly portioned, al dente and seasoned.
Hummus and Pita Bread.  Our family favorite. Their pita is freshly baked in the pizza oven, so it's moist and chewy. Hummus is creamy and tangy.
Macaroni and Cheese.  A light deliciously cheesy dish served with al dente fusilli.
Chicken Nuggets with Broccolini.  Chicken breast, seasoned crust, gorgeous brocollini.
Fusilli with Butter.  Another al dente fusilli with light toss of butter.
Sundaes for 99 cents.  Seriously, all this goodness for a dollar!
We order the special Sundaes with all the fixings on the side (just to complicate things). Now we get hands-on do-it-yourself element ;')
The hot fudge is to die forhot, gooey, dark and rich.
Now with our bellies filled, we head out to the Discovery Center.
Large roomy elevators call for busting out into breaking...headspins, spider crawls, back hand stands...yo!
Here's my baby b-boy. xo
