Something quick the kids will enjoy on those busy nights

Hockey season is finishing up this week, and it’s been a great year for our youth. Social media is full of local kids celebrating their wins, holding trophies proudly.

To be honest, I had no idea that hockey would be part of our family fabric, too. When our son asked if he could play it took me by surprise. Well, give it a try we did – that’s how our family rolls. Hockey parents get to witness their children pushing themselves to do better and dig deeper than could ever be possible hanging out on the sofa or playing video games.

Visiting small-town Ontario, the hockey arena smelling like fresh-cut fries, it was hard to tell who was more proud or excited, the parents or kids. The rush of getting to the arena on time is a challenge for any parent busy with jobs and life. I’m sure even getting dinner together was a rush for many – so much effort for the big game.

Why sign your kids up for organized sports? The influence of parents and coaches nurturing confidence in our youth offers so much to be celebrated.

Way to go, Woolwich, your hockey program and all the behind the scenes volunteers are amazing. Congratulations on a fabulous season! See you next year, hockey family.

Hockey night Flatbread

  • 4 pieces of naan bread
  • 1 cup maple chipotle BBQ sauce
  • 2 chicken breasts sliced
  • 1/2 cup diced peppers
  • 3 Tbsp. sliced red onions
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • Diced cooked bacon
  • 1 cup shredded smoked cheddar
  • 3 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan cheese

Place naan bread on a parchment lined cookie sheet. 

Spread bbq sauce over the naan about an 1/2 “ away from the edge. Depending on how big your naan is you may not need the whole cup. 

Add sliced chicken, peppers, onions, bacon, and spinach over the bbq sauce. Then top with mozzarella and parmesan.

Bake in oven at 375 F until golden. About 12 minutes. We served our naan pizzas with cut vegetables and salad. Enjoy!
