After School Snacks: Angel Food Cake & Strawberries

I had bought an angel food cake one day and to prevent us from eating it all up I decided to section it up, some for now and some for future dessert/snack ideas. I took one chunk and cubed it and strung it on a skewer with some strawberries. It was pretty darn easy and made a great after school snack for Christian that day.

I took another piece and used my Pampered Chef Cutters to make mini shapes for the kids. I took my mini skewers and made small skewers of the flower shaped cake with strawberries for another day.

Then I took a big section of the angel food cake and sliced relatively thin slices, about the thickness of a slice of bread. I grouped them into 4's, bagged them, and stuck them in the freezer for future desserts and snacks.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
