Summer Snacks

Summer play stirs up quite the apetite. If you're looking to spice up snack time, here are some fun ideas for you.

*apples, sliced from top to bottom, core cut out with a small heart shaped cookie cutter
*pretzel rods with a large marshmellow on one end, dipped in PB and rolled in chocolate chips
*rainbow sprinkles over yogurt
*mini bagels, spread with PB and topped with thinly sliced apple slices
*english muffins, topped with tomato sauce, pepperonis and shredded mozarella - broiled
*made-to-order trail mix - favorite cereal, favorite dried fruit, favorite nut, and chocolate/PB/buttersctoch chips
*sushi treats - mold rice krispy treats into thick disc shape, wrap in a fruit roll up and stick a jelly belly in the center
*just about anything on a skewer - fruit, veggies, hotdogs and cheese, chicken and apples

We enjoyed our little trip very much... my brother-in-law's wedding. Here are a few pictures of me and my little flower girls.

oeLei, you and the girls look BEAUTIFUL!!! I really mean it! Those colors suit you all so well. Okay, ummm, your "little" brother is married? That is sooooo weird, right?!

I love summer weddings. So romantic!

Lei, you are GORGEOUS! Now we know where those girls get their good looks from.

Thanks for all the fun food ideas.One of my favorite snacks is a spoonful of PB dipped in semi-sweet chocolate chips. YUMMY!

What great snack ideas! Thanks for sharing. You're right about summer giving kids an appetite. I think I hear, "I'm hungry" 20 times a day, lol.
:) Smiles!

My goodness, Lei. You're so pretty! No wonder your little flower girls are so adorable.

I could have used them this weekend. I haven't told anyone yet but Cameron never went down that aisle. At all. So a few extra flower girls would have been a distraction. LOL

Just ran over to thank you for your comment and assure you your name is in the hat for the favor giveaway.

Beautiful photos~~your smile exudes peace!!

summer snacks--we are liking the apple slices dipped in peanut butter (tastes like a caramel apple) and frozen pineapple. I use frozen fruit as snack, frequently.
