Shop your pantry
Without frequent shopping trips, you may find yourself (or your family) asking “what’s for dinner?” a little more often than usual. Now is a great time to dig into your pantry and rediscover the wealth of ingredients that are hiding in plain sight: delicious spices, versatile pastas, or boxed cake, brownie and cookie mixes that are sure to put a smile on your face. You can also turn the everyday routine of browsing your pantry into a fun activity for kids, letting them pretend to shop at the grocery store by exploring different foods and snacks and “checking out” what they would like to enjoy for lunch or dinner.
Try a new recipe
Once you’ve explored your pantry, fridge and freezer, you may find that you have more ingredients to work with than you initially thought! Why not try out a new recipe with a family member? Making breads or a delicious just-because cake is sure to fill your home with a warm, delicious aroma. You can even connect with a friend or family member who’s not at home with you and cook together via video chat!
Host a virtual barbecue or dinner party
Speaking of video chat, the options are endless when it comes to connecting with friends and family near and far. Do you have a special celebration coming up that calls for a tasty dinner? Ring up your loved ones and dig in from your respective homes! You can enjoy lots of laughter and family games with a virtual dinner party to celebrate a special anniversary or birthday party, for example, or throw a just-because barbecue where everyone digs into tasty meats and sides from home. The flavorful fun is proof that food is a powerful source of connection, even when you can’t connect in person.
We hope that these ideas help you enjoy meaningful moments as you spend time at home! We here at Colt’s Pig Stand hope you and your family stay happy, healthy and well, and are here to provide your favorite, familiar flavors when cravings kick in.
