It’s a Family Affair

On Saturday, Pete and I got together with my family down in Howell for dinner. My parents just had a ton of work done in their house, including getting a brand new (and beautiful!) granite table. This was going to be the first time we all had a family meal in the new kitchen. I was in charge of cooking and decided to make stombolis. 5 different kinds of stromboli to be exact. Little did I know it would become a family affair, but an exciting one at that!

On the menu were the following:

  • Pepperoni Stromboli
  • Proscuitto Stromboli
  • Ricotta and Mozzarella Stromboli
  • Roasted Red Pepper and Cheese Stromboli
  • Pepperoni Stromboli on Whole Wheat Dough

First step with making strombolis is to get your dough ready.

Luckily, I had some help with that. My niece, Isabella, became a pro at rolling out dough!

With some help from her Uncle Pete, she really got the hang of it.

Once they rolled out each dough, I added the ingredients. Mozzarella first, ingredients second, topped by spinach and some more mozzarella. Time to roll those babies up!

Once rolled, my sister seasoned with salt and pepper and poked holes with a fork into each stromboli loaf.

My mom added the toppings for the ricotta and mozzarella stromboli and even got my nephew, Cameron, involved!

It was so cute to watch kids get excited about cooking!

Once all five strombolis were in the oven, the chefs paused for some photographs.

The guys, who we dubbed “the eaters” wanted in on the fun.

Silly!

Soon enough, dinner was ready.

Absolutely loved cooking and preparing this meal with my fam- and being able to break in the new kitchen and table together! Ciao!

Have you ever cooked with kids before?

What is the last meal you made with your family?
