Today is my first post for my “kids in the kitchen” summer series. Join me each Friday for a variety of recipes to get the kids involved in the kitchen. This first recipe to start off the series is a main dish recipe that I made in a summers cooking series when I was a girl. It was done in my local newspaper. The original skillet supper recipe is a bit bland for my present tastes, so I added some more to it for more flavor!
I am also having my kids get involved in the kitchen this summer. My boys planned out their meals for the next two weeks to make. One is making baked manicotti – I found this to be quite ambitious for a 12 year old but he is making something he loves. I will be right there with him for that one. He will serve it with garlic bread from the store and tossed salad.
My other son chose to make Laura’s version of Cafe Rio sweet pork. He is also making a meal he loves and this one is a recipe for a beginner to make. He will serve it up on Tortillaland uncooked flour tortillas. Since his recipe is so easy, cooking the tortillas will give him some more experience in the kitchen.
