We had a wonderful weekend with our daughter (Christi from Frugal Novice), son-in-law, and two little grandsons. The oldest grandson, who is three years old, got sick with the stomach virus and was so pitiful! He said emphatically, “Stop that, throw-up! Stay in my mouth!!” We were all thankful when he felt better!
Well…this was not the most appetizing topic to begin with…sorry about that! Let me get on with our menu.
Tuesday: Salmon patties, salad, carrots
Wednesday: Rotisserie Chicken, baked potatoes, salad
Thursday: Leftover chicken, corn, green beans
Friday: Texas Chicken Vegetable Soup (just a little spicy)
“Spooky Spiders” Peanut Butter & Crackers (from Gooseberry Patch’s “Kids in the Kitchen, Year ‘Round Fun”)
- Creamy peanut butter
- Buttery round crackers
- Mini pretzel sticks
- Red cinnamon candies or mini candy-coated chocolates
- Candy sprinkles
Spread a small amount of peanut butter on a cracker. Put 4 pretzels on each side for the 8 legs of a spider. Top a second cracker with a small amount of peanut butter and gently press onto first cracker. Add raisin or candy eyes and decorations to top cracker (peanut butter will hold them on).
Peanut butter makes a delicious glue 🙂
