Turkey Veggie Straw snack, fast and eeasy healthy snack for kids. Perfect for ThanksgivingDirections:

1. Begin by assembling the face of your turkey. Begin by adding a dab of glue to the googly eyes and pressing them to the front of the cup. Hold in place until secure.

2. Snip a small triangle out of your orange paper. Secure it directly under the eyes for the beak of the turkey.

3. Finish the face by creating the gobbler. A strip of red paper or foam works great for this. Secure it under the beak with glue.

4. You will now create the “feathers” of your turkey. Simply place the colorful veggie straws in the cup. You can flare them out a bit if you wish to really look like feathers. Kids will love snacking on their edible turkeys, and you will love how frugal and healthy this Thanksgiving treat is. Gather your supplies and try making your own veggie straw turkeys. They are soon to be a Thanksgiving favorite!Turkey Veggie Straw snack, fast and eeasy healthy snack for kids. Perfect for Thanksgiving

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip~ Turkey Tray~ Thanksgiving Snack Idea

This fruit dip is AMAZING.  Seriously.  If you like apples and peanut butter you are going to want to eat it all on your own.  The recipe makes enough to share, so bring it to your next holiday gathering so you aren’t tempted to eat it all alone.

thanksgiving food ideas, #snack, #apple, #fruitdip, #thanksgiving, #turkey, #apples, #fall

Recipe

1 cube cream cheese

1 cup brown sugar packed

1 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup milk

*Would also be fabulous with chocolate chips mixed in

Soften your cream cheese, add all your other ingredients and mix with a mixer.  It really is so simple!

Let it chill for a little while (although it tastes great right away too)

To create this cute turkey with your apple slices, you will need a round tray.  For easy clean up, cover it in tin foil.  Use an apple slicer and cut up the desired amount of apples.  The tray pictured had 5 whole Fuji apples on it.  Place your bowl of dip on the tray.  Arrange fanning out the slices as if they are the feathers, spreading around your bowl.  Your bowl is the body of the turkey.  I used m&ms for my turkey face and a Hershey kiss for his beak.

Your apples will turn brown if sliced too long, so slice them just before serving.

Cheese put it on the table and see who it brings your family together.  EASY Holiday ideas, CHEESE, President Brie, AlbertsonsWhat do you think of when you hear the word CHEESE?  My kids would all think of the bright orange/ yellow brick of cheddar cheese that seems to be an american staple.   But when I hear the word cheese I now think of France.  Two years ago my husband and I were able to spend 2 weeks in France.  We stayed with distant relatives, so we lived “French” while we were there.  We saw some amazing things, ate some amazing food as well as some crazy things and were able to observe a totally different lifestyle than what we were use to.

One of the biggest difference’s was meal time.  Eating in France takes TIME, there is no such thing as a quick meal.  You start out with bread, then a salad, then a soup, then the main course… just then you think you could not eat anther thing they bring out the cheese, bread and fruit.  Only to then end with 90% dark chocolate and coffee.

All of this take about 2 hours, at the end of the meal they sit around and talk about what went on that day and  continue to eat cheese and bread.  There is NO yellow cheddar cheese to be found, instead a large assortment of aged cheese both hard and soft.  Some of it so “smelly” I could not bring myself to put it in my mouth.  Others I did get in my mouth but it was all I could take to swallow.  I did not want to offend anyone, after all sharing cheese seemed to be a real symbol of love.  Finally I found a cheese that I could not only swallow but rather enjoyed. Brie is a soft cheese, with a firm/ almost rubber like outside.  It is mild but still very much an aged cheese full of flavor.

Since we have come home we have decided to share this tradition with our children.  We do not eat cheese on a daily basis, but on special days or occasions we bring out the cheese, bread, fruit and even a little meat so all the kids can share in a little part of France.  I have to admit it makes me rather happy to see them gobble it down with a smile on their face, as they grow we will continue to  introduce them to more varieties.

Cheddar Cheese Pumpkins, a fast and easy idea for Thanksgiving or Halloween.  Healthy Party Treat Ideas #CheesePumpkins seem to be the symbol of fall, you can make a quick and easy meat and pumpkin shaped cheese tray for your next get together.  Perfect for a picnic, party or family gathering.  It is both festive looking and a healthy way to celebrate the season.

Cheddar Cheese Pumpkins, a fast and easy idea for Thanksgiving or Halloween.  Healthy Party Treat Ideas #CheeseAll you need to make you own cheese pumpkins is Babybel Cheddar  and fresh parsley.  I found these Babybel Cheddar at my local Albertsons in their specialty cheese section. To make your own “cheese pumpkins” open the mini Babybel, it will have a plastic wrapper on the outside but it will also have a wax coating around the cheese.  That is easily taken off by pulling the tabs found on the red wax shell. Push the parsley stem into the top to make it look like a pumpkin stem.  If you want them to stand up cut a small slice off the bottom.

Serve alone or with meat and crackers.  These would be fun to send in a school lunch, kind of like a Lunchable but a lot more fun!
