Start your week off right: make Monday family night!
The Kids Cook Monday is a weekly opportunity for families to take health into their own hands. The Kids Cook Monday provides examples of kid friendly recipes and picture and/or video demonstrations along with nutrition and safety tips – making it easy for families to cook and eat together every Monday.
Serve with your favorite sides
Audrey loves pizza (I think most children do) so we made her favorite for dinner. What is Audrey’s favorite pizza, you ask?
She loves pineapple and ham so it was a natural choice when she started eating pizza. Her daddy loves Hawaiian as well. We usually like to make our own crust but we are visiting Audrey’s grandparents and thought it easier to buy a pre-made crust. But visiting relatives does not mean we slack for Kids Cook Monday!
Hawaiian Pizza (makes 2 pizzas)
2 Boboli Pizza crusts
Jar of pizza sauce
1 (6-8 oz) Package Canadian bacon or ham
1 (14 oz) can pineapple chunks
1 (6-8 oz) package shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F. Place desired amount pizza sauce on crusts and spread to edges. (We like 2-3 tbsp per crust). Add meat, pineapple, and cheese. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Let cool for 5-10 minutes so your cheese does not melt every where!
Audrey and Maurene are two toddlers who love to help mamma in the kitchen. They are learning to cook, bake, clean, and set the table. Their mother, Kris, is hoping in another few years to be able to pass kitchen duties to her young helpers. They live in Lawrence, Kansas with the girl’s very busy father and no grandparents. This leaves a lot of time for cooking. If you would like to follow along with more cooking adventures for toddlers and young children, visit their blog, www.inthekitchenwithaudrey.com.
