This week's theme is about our favorite family snacks...yum! I know I will come away from visiting everyone's posts with new ideas for us to enjoy. :)
We try to keep fresh food on hand for snacking...hard to do when 6 people are noshing away all day lol. But when my kiddos get hungry between meals they reach for the bananas, apples, grapes, cut up melons I keep in the fridge and baby carrots with Ranch dressing for dip. Ds2 will eat a tomato like an apple, and ds3 often makes himself a salad for a snack. I know, these kids are crazy! :))
I love to bake, so I do usually have something sweet on hand like a cake or some cookies. Usually we have those for desert and they don't last long. Some of our favorite snacks (that you have to actually "prepare") are vanilla yogurt with sliced bananas and cinnamon sprinkled on top (also yummy with blueberries or strawberries,) toast with peanut butter, sliced bananas and a sprinkle of wheat germ for crunch, and dh's good old "cheese toast" which is just bread topped with a slice of cheese and baked.
Purchased snacks that my kiddos enjoy include Cheerios Snack Mix, granola bars and a quick bowl of cold cereal. That's about it! Hope everyone has a blessed week. Julie
