Now that the school year is almost over, *praise Jesus*, many of you are looking forward to a break from digital or in person learning. Though classes only lasted for 10 out of the 12 months, this school year seemed to be longer than the others. Am I right??
Well now that that’s over, there’s another hurdle to jump over: what to feed your kids during the summer?
My little guy eats like he’s twice his size, so I’m right there with you thinking about how we’re gonna make it through the next few months. But if the last year during the pandemic and social unrest has shown me anything, it’s that even in the face of adversity still, we rise. So this too shall pass, and I’m here to help you figure it all out with what I do best: quick, tasty meals, that use simple ingredients. To help you start summer off with a bag, I wanted to share a quick recipe that you and/or your kids can make that’s easy to customize, add variety, and make personal: pizza!
If you trust your kid with the (toaster) oven or air fryer, this could be a lunch idea to add to the rotation or even an easy dinner. You can use whatever you have on hand...including those random vegetables in the back of the fridge. Oh and pizza is a great dish to pair with that bagged salad that moves from the fridge to the trash each week. Let’s throw that on the plate too and eat it this time!
And because you’re exhausted, I made a quick video that shows you some of the favorite things I put on my personal pizza as well as how you can get your kids involved *cough* have them do it themselves, so you can rest. *cough*
The video is a guest feature that I did with Maryland Teacher Tutors, so there’s some after school references thrown in there, which your little one can use even during the summer.
What are your favorite pizza toppings that you’ll be adding? Catch the video here to see mine. Be sure to subscribe to my channel and leave a comment while you’re there as well.
As a self taught culinary creator, Chef Ashley decided to take her love of food to the masses by launching her brand that focuses on ways to be "healthyish", simplifying meal time, and dispelling the rumor that delicious food has to have tons of salt and fat. She believes that meal prep isn't just for the super health conscious and that it can help us all to take back the hours stolen by our kitchens. She began her meal prep journey as a way to save time and energy, but ended up finding a calling.
