We know how it feels being at home these past few weeks. While spending more time with the family has been a nice little perk, it can be a challenge to keep your normal routine going while trying to keep the kids entertained and still putting healthy, hearty meals on the dinner table. But what if cooking could be the kids’ new midday activity? Here at Teton Waters Ranch, we’ve been revisiting some of our recipes and finding ones that the kids can help out with, and we wanted to share them with you, while also looking forward to a couple of reasons to celebrate this month.
At TWR, we know family is important, and these recipes will keep your kiddos fed and entertained. Our Apple & Sausage Macaroni and Cheese is a prime example of that, as it keeps everyone’s taste buds satisfied, and is a perfect way to get the kiddos into the kitchen. This recipe keeps chopping to a minimum, but it has just enough going on to give everyone a role they can take ownership of and feel like they had a hand in making.
But if you want to bend the rules and give the kids some food they can play with for a change, our Paleo Spider Hot Dogs are the perfect answer to how you turn lunchtime into playtime. These are sure to be an instant hit, and one you can whip up with the kids whenever they need a quick bite. We’ve got plenty more recipes where those came from, so as long as you have some high quality, grass-fed beef on hand, you really can’t go wrong.
A Gift For Mom
This Mother’s Day may look a little different than ones in past years, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still treat mom to a truly special day. Let mom sleep in, and get the kids together to help you make her breakfast in bed. This Whole30 Tomato Basil Sausage Frittata may look simple, but it’s got the taste of the fancy brunch spot that always has a line around the corner. Plus, it’s one that the whole family can help with. Once it’s out of the oven, have the kids decorate the plate and bring it to mom along with a fresh glass of OJ, making it the start to a Mother’s Day she’ll always remember.
Fire Up The Grill
Memorial Day has always been an unofficial kickoff to grilling season, and while it may be a while before the big backyard barbecues come roaring back, there’s still reason to celebrate this year. Head outside, fire up the grill, and enjoy some outdoor cooking time with the whole family. If you’re looking to take it to the next level, make it into a backyard picnic. Bust out a beach towel, bring out a batch of spring-inspired drinks, some simple appetizers, and make your backways into the ultimate beach day getaway.
