Ding Dong – Ding Dong!

The school bells are ringing all over the countryside. Some are in session already, others will be within a week or so.

Do you remember coming home from school hungry like a wolf? What were some of your favorite after school snacks?

Our contest for September is along these lines. We challenge you to come up with a NEW recipe of a “kicked up,” version of an old favorite after school snack.

For instance – did your mom make you pimento-cheese & crackers? How can you kick that up a notch or two to make it a bit more updated?

Or, maybe something with peanut butter or... the choice is yours. The contest will run from September 1st – September 28th with the winner of the September Recipe Contest Winner announced on the 30th.

Ready! Set! Create!!

September Contest - "Kicked Up" After School Snack

By Susan Feliciano

Earlier I shared variations on the peanut butter sandwich, which was our usual after-school snack when we were growing up.
My children didn't go to school as we homeschooled them, so there wasn't really much of an "after school" homecoming. But when they finished their daily school work, they would help me in the garden or the kitchen, preparing dinner, or canning and putting up preserves.
One snack they loved to make was peanut butter balls made with powdered milk and honey. I didn't really have a recipe, just stirred together a cup of peanut butter, a cup of powdered milk, and about 1/2 a cup of honey, adding a little more dry milk if necessary to make it stiff enough to roll into balls. We would refrigerate them and enjoy them cold. I also used practically the same recipe at my church's day care center as "edible play dough."
Then, the other day, I ran across a recipe on JAP and saved it - so my girls can have access to it now.

We’re all trying to eat a bit lighter these days, but no need to give up flavor.
