Yet another wonderful week in which I feel we got TONS of food for the money.
That watermelon is bigger then any I have ever seen before at about 2.5 feet long.
We were lucky to still get some peaches (a recipe with them coming tomorrow!!!) and some apples (a recipe with those the day after tomorrow!!).
My favorite item in our bag were these tomatoes
Those tiny ones in the back are the best snack food. They are about the size of a blueberry and you can just pop them in your mouth and go.
Speaking of snacks my children LOVE snacks, whole meals not so much, but mention "snack" and they are on board for whatever you are serving...hence my new favorite snack.
Aften dinner last night the kids wanted dessert and my husband mentioned banana splits...but we don't have any type of ice cream.
So to avoid going to the grocery story and spending money we didn't need to spend I decided to feed the kids these...
Cut in half and topped with this...
In a sandwich bag I placed a handful of animal crackers and crushed them with a meat mallet
The poor meat mallet hasn't gotten much of a workout since I gave up meat, but it did turn those animal crackers into this
A nice fine crunchy middle for my banana treat.
Put the banana halves back together and serve
My husband preferred to have his topped with peanut butter, animal crackers, and chocolate chips
Both very yummy and healthy alternatives to the traditional banana split.
I didn't blog this weekend, I know "BAD" Rachel, but I did want to share the items that were removed for Operation Declutter My House:
