Operation "Bring Back the Snack" Update

Some of you may recall that I posted a couple weeks ago about the fact that I was hoping to reclaim some sort of healthiness to our beloved snack time.

I have rethought my plans since then and because, let's be honest, almost 3 years olds can be fickle on a good day, I don't want us to be strapped to a rigid plan. So I have decided that I will just list all my snack ideas and once a week I will try to m(b)ake one new snack recipe can can be enjoyed periodically throughout that week, or frozen for later use. I will include this snack in my weekly meal plan.

In my quest I have come across an AWESOME database of wonderfully healthy and delicious baked goods - Pattycake and a baking website to blow your mind... Joy of both of which have NUMEROUS baking ideas, so please go check them out!

So without further ado...

  • Cheese Quesadilla served with Juice
  • Inside out Sandwich Roll served with Water
