Vacation Cooking: Kids are the stars

We spent last week vacationing in Minnesota with extended family. Every other summer we meet for a week on a lake in the western part of Minnesota, spending time fishing, tubing and eating. Each night a different family takes care of dinner – on our night, we did a simple BBQ with burgers and brats, coleslaw, baked beans and of course, several desserts.

The highlight of the week is always the night the kids cook. In 2011, the kids did a great job, with chili, Pad Thai and several appetizers. 

This year the menu included mini pizza appetizers, meatballs in red sauce, artichoke dip, Peruvian stir fry, sweet potato fries and red velvet cake.
