A Healthy Summertime Snack For Your Kids
Oh, for the lazy days of Summer.... As If!
Nowadays we all rush around trying to balance two jobs, the kids and running the house. Many of us are taking classes on top of that.
The end result is we often just grab whatever is handy to snack on. Chips or sweet snacks like cookies or snack cakes. Not very healthy,eh? Try this instead. Take a few minutes and buy a package of tropical fruit mix at the market along with some wooden skewers. Also buy a package of popcorn chicken bites ( Tyson makes some really good ones).
You have all you need to make a platter of mini kebobs that your children will love.
Just make some up in the morning and place on a platter in the fridge.
They'll grab 'em and go.
Here's the recipe instructions:
Take a skewer and slide two pieces of fruit on
Chill and watch them disappear!
This idea works really well as an appetizer also. Simply use long toothpicks instead of skewers and arrange on a bed of rice or lettuce leaves.
To get my recipe "Sweet & Spicy Popcorn Chicken" free just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put popcorn chicken in the subject line. I hope you can use this idea.

In Grandmas Kitchen (Part I)
One of my fondest childhood memories is being in the kitchen with my Hungarian grandmother. I loved watching her chopping vegetables, kneading dough, and leaning over bubbling pots in a kitchen that was always filled with wonderful aromas. I'd always help her after school-shelling peas or beans, scrubbing and peeling vegetables, and when I got older, helping to prepare dinner. My favorite was Friday dinner-we would always have some kind of savory soup followed by a noodle or sweet dish. I was always a sweet tooth and looked forward to egg noodles with eggs or jam, palacsinta (Hungarian crepes eaten with jam, cocoa, nuts or sweet cheese fillings), and, in the late summer, silvas gomboc (plum dumplings) topped with cinnamon sugar breadcrumbs.

Straight Talk from a Comfort Foodie - Fast Food
My parents lived for convenience when it came to feeding their children. I was a Beech-Nut kid, and breast-feeding wasn't my mother's idea of liberation. I was weaned on A&W root beer served by a car-hop at a local joint called "Suds n' Dogs." Dad was a cosmetic salesman, and, though he was raised in an orthodox Jewish household by a mother that adhered to the kosher principles, he lived on a steady diet of quick stop specialties regardless of their orientation.
