MAKE IT CUTE
4 easy after-school bites for you 'n' your buds
Ask mom to keep the refrigerator stocked with tortillas and shredded cheese. When you bust through the front door, dig through leftovers and ripe veggies to create a delicious concoction. Mashed up meatballs from last night’s spaghetti dinner? Yum! Shredded grilled chicken? Fantasmic!
While you can certainly make a stack of fresh crepes (and show off your culinary skills), it’s super easy to whip up a batch over the weekend and store them in an air-tight bag in the refrigerator for an anytime snack. Pop them in the microwave for about 20 seconds or until piping hot, then slather on Nutella, jam, peanut and banana—whatever you’re craving.
Grilled cheese finger sandwiches
Perfect for when you’re not in the mood for a huge sammie but yearning for some comfort food, these bite-sized grilled cheeses are tops. Slice your bread into quarters and make enough for everyone to have one or two. Then fill ‘em and grill ‘em!
Make individual pizzas for all of your pals with jarred tomato sauce, shredded cheese and whatever toppings you have laying around. Fifteen minutes in the oven—or until the cheese is bubbly—are all that’s separating you from gooey goodness.
