Can I get a collective shout for joy at summertime being here?! Baby it's hot outside though! Who wants to heat the house up even more?! Here in the Pacific Northwest, we live for the evenings because it's nature's air conditioning (of which no houses have built in because of our short summers!) I means we have a lot more time outside, including meals together.
With the 4th of July right around the corner, I came up with a really fun idea to make on the grill. Check it out!
What you need:
Kraft BBQ sauce
Kraft mild cheddar cheese, cut into star shapes
First, fire up the grill. You won't want it flaming hot unless blackened crust is your jam! Assemble your ingredients. Spread a few tablespoons of bbq sauce on the crust. We like it on thick! Slice the cheese into 1/4-1/2 inch pieces. The kids loved helping put the pieces onto their pizza just right. You could easily add-in your favorite toppings, but we were in a cheesy mood this time!
Cook for 3-4 minutes and voila! All done. Cut into slices and serve!
We weren't done yet though! Something about our kids and lots and lots of yummy food just go together. I can be putting dinner together and they are wanting to know "but what else are we having?!" Do your kids do this?! I hear it often! So, I got a little help from my little soux chef to cook up some Oscar Meyer hot dogs. I didn't have to ask twice!
The boys were thrilled to have their favorite foods (even salad! Andrew loves his veggies! The Market Side salad was all ready to go and paired great with the bbq pizza!) Sometimes simple is just as fun!
And for dessert? Fruit kabobs! Can't get much easier than that! The boys were going back for thirds, begging to put more grapes and melons on. Of course! :) I'm going to have to keep it in mind for the next time we want to make breakfast, lunch & dinner a little extra special.
If you're grilling up this summer, stop by your local Walmart and check out how they can help you fire up the grill with Kraft. What are your summer bbq must-haves? Are you grilling anything I should add to our list?? Do tell! (There are some yummy recipes in this free digital cookbook here!)
