This week's Homeschool Memoirs theme is Favorite Snacks! Yum! Here's the theme:
Awhile back Mother Dear received a question on what snack foods to buy for homeschooling families, on the go or at home, and she inspired this week’s theme. There are so many different kinds of snack foods, store-bought and homemade, and I would like to invite you to share what snack foods your family usually snacks on throughout the week. You’re welcome to make season lists too. I know there are different meals we eat during the colder seasons than we do in the warmer ones, and I imagine there are also seasonal snack foods as well.We aren't huge snackers in our family, but we do like to have something to nibble on every now and then. Here's our list . . .
Apples with peanut butter
Chips and dip
Chips and salsa
Cheese and crackers
Peanut butter and saltines, graham crackers, or vanilla wafers
Frozen chocolate chips (it's pitiful, I know!)
Fruit - grapes, apples, oranges are our favorites
TimBits and coffee
Homemade cookies or coffee cake - Beth is our resident baker
Little Debbie cakes - oatmeal creme pies, lemon cake rolls, nutty bars (see how healthy we are?!)
Now that I see that list, maybe we're bigger snackers than I thought! ;) And did it just get worse and worse or what? LOL
Being diabetic, I occasionally need snacks, and if the sweets are in the house, I'm more likely to eat those than the yogurt, fruit, or nuts. My favorite good-for-me snack is the apple slices with natural peanut butter, and I keep a container of no-sugar-added ice cream whenever possible. I get teased a lot about my ice cream. I'm addicted to it. Everybody else eats whatever we have on hand at the moment.
