We were inspired when we recently heard about the American Camp Association’s recent partnership with Kids Cook Monday. The Kids Cook Monday initiative encourages families to set aside the first night of every week for cooking and eating together as a family. Because we think this is such a great idea, we will continue to share our camper-approved, healthy recipes, straight from our Culinary Cooking program here at Camp Towanda as inspiration for your family dinners. Enjoy!
What could be better? Pretzels and Chicken Fingers coming together in perfect harmony! When our campers made these at The Culinary Cookin’ Class at The Farm this past summer they said “I can totally make these at home!” The most fun part…put the pretzels in a ziploc bag and stomp them into crumbs. A work out, stress reliever and delicacy, rolled into one delicious lunch or dinner! P.S. they still taste great the day after when thrown into a lunchbox!
