100 moments of summer...cooking together (no. 3)
“Cooking is at once child's play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.” ~Craig Claiborne
"I think preparing food and feeding people brings nourishment not only to our bodies but to our spirits...feeding people is a way of loving them..." ~Shauna Niequist
One of the great things about summer is that the kids have less of a schedule and more free time. It's so nice to use some of that free time to cook together. We keep it simple & easy...like this Buffalo Chicken Pizza. We used a prepared pizza crust...topped it with blue cheese salad dressing and shredded mozzarella cheese. Then added cubed chicken that we cooked on the stove in hot sauce. Next we cut up some red onion. Drizzled some more hot sauce over the top and baked it in a 450 degree oven for 8-10 minutes until done. Very yummy!
The best part was just spending time together...going to the store to buy the ingredients...preparing the food in the kitchen...and sitting down at the table enjoying the meal. It doesn't have to be fancy & gourmet to be fun!
