For most kiddos, Christmas Break is now over and it’s time to get back to school, homework and earlier bedtimes. But that certainly doesn't mean that the fun has to stop. One day after school, have a group of kids over and let them make their own pizza pockets.
Simply have a selection of ingredients in bowls and let the kids build their own custom pizza pocket.
Some ideas for fillings include:
- Ham, Canadian bacon, salami, pepperoni
- Diced bell peppers (various colors), sliced olives, diced onions, shredded carrots
- Pineapple tidbits, Mandarin oranges
- Any favorite cheese
While you and the kids have fun cooking together, they are learning valuable life lessons and skills that are best learned with hands-on experiences such as this.
Find a wide range of fresh veggies, meats and cheese and Reasor’s and other area grocery stores.
