After a day of swimming in the pool or day-tripping to the nearest museum or zoo, the last thing you want to do is head to your kitchen and make a big family meal. Why not try a casual, no-fuss family-style affair instead?Cooking included.
Family-style meals are perfect for casual summer nights — many can be made easily and without creating a sink-full of dirty dishes. And their self-serve style makes it easy for everyone to eat when they're ready — no need to wait for the whole family to assemble before you dig in. There’s also something about the act of passing around a dish of home-cooked food that sparks conversation, laughter, and good memories.
So, if you’re looking for something to make for dinner tonight, why not try one of these recipes?
