Day 76

There was no snack yesterday.  Did you notice?  Probably not.  I have been slightly lacking in inspiration.  Maybe it's the after holiday lull, or the fact that I'm not a big winter fan so winter snacks seem no fun.  Or that all I can think of for Valentine's Day is a heart, which isn't super original.  So, I came home from work without an idea, without a plan, without a sketch, and at the point in the week where I start making the grocery list because stuff is getting low.  I tried out a few different ideas, hoping to be randomly struck by inspiration when I walked through the door.  I wasn't.  And then I wasn't out to greet the bus either and almost missed getting Diva off the bus so I said forget it, and succumbed to her immediate request for chocolate, and maybe had some too.

Today I was determined to get back in the swing.  I had an idea.  I had a sketch.  I got home and the book sitting on the table seemed like a much more inviting idea.  The sketch will likely reappear next week (when I have better groceries).  Today I give you...

Day 72

Yesterday was a Girl Scout Daisy meeting, so I had a Munchie Mom day off.  The weather has been unseasonably warm in Ohio this winter, and we've had some unusual, but welcome, sunshine and blue skies the past few days.  I'm loving it, but it makes it harder to be inspired to create winter themed snacks, so I didn't.


strawberries, carrot sticks, pineapple, peas, blue fruit loops, grapes

Day 68

Missed me, missed me, now you gotta kiss me!  I hope you all had a great holiday break.  Happy New Year, and welcome back to snack making fun.

We had our first real snowfall of the year last night/today, which is quite late in the season for Ohio.  (I didn't mind in the least).  So, for the first day back from break and snow...


graham cracker sticks spokes (I use Kroger brand), blueberry middle and ends, marshmallow snow on the plate
