This my friends is the famous… Mix & Match technique! :-) I’m kidding of course even though that’s what I’ve named these recipes, since it’s basically all you need to do…. combine the ingredients in many different ways to get different, yummy results… each time! Use ingredients that can be easily found in the house (some you may need to go out an buy) or you can put your leftovers to good use and create all sorts of goodies like… sandwiches, salads, homemade pizzas, wraps and many, many other “easy” foods that can make your lives much easier any time of year, but especially during the summer months.
Last, thanks to the recipes’ simple and very organized steps, you can bring your children into the kitchen and get them better acquainted with foods, cooking, prepping and of course… eating and having fun together!
