Cooking with Kids
Friday nights in the Fall are all about high school football so normally we aren’t home, but the game was far away and we decided not to go. That left the night open for my son and I to have a date night at home. I sort of had to convince him it was going to be fun because he really wanted to go over to his friend’s house and play. When I picked him up from school I realized he was excited for our little night alone because he said everyone at school knew what he was doing that night. I have to cherish this because it won’t last long. Our night started by my son running around the house pretending to be a ninja after that we began making mini hot pockets, then we watched a movie “Marmaduke” which was funny but had some rude bodily function humor that boys think is hilarious. We ended the night with ice-cream and making Halloween spiders.
Mini Hot Pockets
1 pkg. Pillsbury crescent rolls (6 count large)
pepperoni slices chopped
We experimented with different shapes and sizes. I found that 2 rolls stretched out and seams put together cut in half to form 2 squares works best. Just put sauce, cheese and pepperoni in the middle and fold one corner over to form a triangle. But the fun in it is letting your children decide how they wants to do it. Bake at 350 for 15 min.
He loved his own food 🙂
- Many things could be used to make these hot pockets just pick your favorite ingredients.
- Sweet hot pockets could be made with pie filling or jam, peanut butter and chocolate chips, chocolate chips and banana slices just get creative and have fun.
