“I’m sharing my easy KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Grilled Cheese as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Youknowyouloveit
I remember some of my best summer memories were spent outside with my sister. We would spend all day playing in the dirt, making forts and exploring the creeks that wound their way through the mountains where we grew up. The sweet smell of pine as we would lie under the trees for lunch. It’s those moments I will never forget and I can still remember just how sweet summer smelled back then.
I hope our children make the same wonderful memories with one another and remember to smell the smells of summer and bask in the moments they create.
One thing I remember about summer is the simple meals we prepared. Our favorite KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner was always welcomed after a long day of play and it’s still an easy go to for lunch or dinner.
As we start to get ready for the long days of summer, I’m starting to remake our kids’ favorite dishes and I’m getting a little creative while I’m at it.
Cheesy Broccoli KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Grilled Cheese
- 1 box of KRAFT Mac & Cheese Dinner
- sliced french bread
- 1/2 cup steamed broccoli
- 1 ear of corn
We started by letting our girls to cut their own shapes in the bread. This allows for a little fun and it’s a great way to see the vegetable additions to the grilled cheese.
Next, make your KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner as directed. We cooked the corn for 10 minutes in the water before adding the pasta to finish cooking.
Then it’s time to make the grilled cheese! All of the vegetables should be prepped and cooked.
I used a panini maker but you could easily cook your grilled cheese however you prefer. Add a little butter to one side of the bread then top with KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner and vegetables.
Cook until golden brown. You don’t even need extra cheese for these. They’re so delicious and have loads of flavor!
They’re the perfect sandwich to sit outside with and enjoy. In fact I hope it’s one of those specialties my girls always ask for and never grow out of!
For our family enjoying summer still has those same qualities it did when I was little. It’s about making new memories and enjoying our time with one another. So I hope my girls will have those same memories of enjoying lunch outside in the shade on a hot day. I hope they come to appreciate these sweet summer days! You can find more KRAFT Mac & Cheese meal ideas on their website. In 2016 KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese dinner will have no synthetic colors or artificial preservatives. Making healthier choices for our family is also important to me so it’s nice to know we’ll still get the cheesy goodness we love in KRAFT Mac & Cheese.
What are your favorite memories of summer from your childhood?
