Warm Up with 4 Fun and Kid-Friendly Winter Recipes
When the temperature plunges and the windchill soars, what do you do with your family? Forget about watching movies or playing video games – boring. Bundle up your kids and get ready for some Illinois winter fun. Build a snowman. Strap on a pair of ice skates. Make snow angels. After burning off excess energy, gather the troops and head indoors for some winter warm-up culinary activities. Not sure what to create? Here are four DIY healthy-ish food projects and winter recipes you can make and eat with your kids.
Let’s do lunch inside. Enjoy the quintessential winter soup combo – Creamy Tomato-Basil Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons – all in the same bowl. Skip buying salty canned soup and simmer your own in less than 20 minutes. Feel free to use any type of bread or cheese for the croutons. I prefer whole wheat bread to add fiber and American cheese because it melts evenly.
