- Snack On days when you simply need an afternoon snack, try this crispy ranch and chive popcorn. Need more crunch? Try these baked mozzarella cheese bites with easy marinara sauce, which can double as a great vegetarian meal!
- Dinner What’s for dinner? Try these savory black bean burgers with tangy mustard potato salad for dinner. It’s a great meat-free option that will delight even a hardcore carnivore. Or, prepare some cozy Thai chicken soup in the slow cooker during the day. You will love a warm, flavorful soup that evening.
- Dessert Satisfy your sweet tooth with kid-friendly apple nachos. If you do the apple slicing, kids can get in on the action and assemble these nachos themselves. Want a frozen dessert? Give these frozen yogurt pops with peaches a try. And, experiment with your favorite frozen fruit!
