What was your favorite meal growing up? Pizza? Tator Tots? See if you can create a mature version of your beloved childhood fav’s. Oh, and replace the bottled ketchup with a homemade dipping sauce.
If you are struggling to find new meal ideas and don’t want to buy a bunch of new ingredients, try a meal kit. There are many meal subscription boxes to choose from. They come with detailed instructions and pre-measured ingredients so trying something new could not be easier!
Fusion cuisine combines food from different countries or cultures to make something new and unexpected. Try Mexican lasagna, Greek tacos, or a Thai curry.

What better way to try new foods than to host a potluck? Have friends or family come over, bringing a new dish or household favorite. You get a bite of everything and a fun evening.
Time to leave some room for dessert! So often we go out for dinner and pass on the delicious sweets. Plan a day to visit your favorite eatery, just for dessert!
