I am slowly but surley getting the hang of muffin tin Monday!
And I do it for this reason .... look up and you'll notice she ate it all .... ALL of it! What a fun way to start the day, a fun way to eat breakfast, and a nice big healthy meal, after all isn't breakfast most important meal of the day?? And now I know why my kid has such good brain function in the mornings ... she eats well :)

On Wednesdays I meet up with the some local moms for a playdate, we were having a birthday party this week, so I wanted to make something BRIGHT and FUN .... searching the internet lead me to this recipe, ALL the kids seemed to love it, and my Lu ate them faster than I've ever seen her gobble something down, percisley why its making the "Kid Friendly Friday Cut" because kids love it! BUT it isn't something KID FRIENDLY to make, the first couple steps are but then, as kids often do they loose patients. It is YUM though, better than the average jello! It is tasty!
I do recommend atleast making this one time if you have children, just to see the shear JOY on their faces, It is not an everyday kinda recipe and it does take a LONG time and much patients! The mommy group all thought it looks like the homemade "pretty soaps" What do ya'll think?

So, since its been aparent I have not been home, I have not been in the Kitchen with Lu this week, I actually have some things I could use that I haven't posted about before when Lu and I have been cooking together, but I decided to forego that and put some different kinds of snacks and trailmix recipes on here since school is starting REAL soon! I must say that apples, gogurts, cheesestix, and raisins may be a good quick snack for the kiddos, but Lu got tired of them real fast last year, and at her school they request a snack be sent everyday, so this year I am getting smarter and snagging all these great ideas from other bloggers, magazines, and genuis moms so that my little Lu doesn't complain quite as much. And if you guys have a great snack you give your kids, let us in on the secret.
First up I am putting down the Muddie Buddies that I made last week for my KITK post, Lu loved those, and after we made them a light bulb in my head went *ding ding ding* great snack item!
I have a whole bunch from Family Fun magazine *who doesn't just love that magazine?? So heres the Snowy Trail mix that I could gobble up myself, then going along with mixes you've got the Monkey Mix and Sticks and Stones Of course you could always do their version of Animal Chips ... how stinkin cute is that? Lu Loves animals, so I am certain it will be a BIG HIT! Then of course they have the Chew on This Pencil, I love this, I think kids would get a KICK outta it! I could certainly go on forever with Ideas from Family Fun, I love the magazine, read it every month, but I will move on to something different now!
I also found these Choco-Nana Pops/Sushi on Little Nummies, these are quite darling.
I love the Blog Fun snacks for Kids she features some great stuff, like this Popcorn Pack a snack and Mini Cracker Sandwhiches these Healthy Butterflies are SO CUTE too, so easy to make, and kids would LOVE them!
Heres a great Granola Bar recipe
I also just had to add these Edible Crayons in for FUN!
And this idea from The Clark Clan is very neat, makes the kids feel independant!
And of course you could always go with the traditional Ants on a Log, Apple ladybugs, and cheese on crackers.
Anybody else have great back to school snack ideas? Post em' let us in on the goods!

We were actually going to skip MTM today because we were so busy running errands that there just wasn't anytime ... and we ate on the go. I also kept thinking I know nothing about Planes, Trains or Automobiles, I have a GIRLY GIRL ... no boys and no knowledge of those 3 things. But then I decided we could do it for dinner, I was making enchiladas, certainly I could somehow make something out of that right?? RIGHT.... a car, light bulb goes off... YAY MTM back on! Lu just loved it, and she knows now how fun it is!!Top: is our Milk Fuel, pretzel stick shifts, graham cracker/skittle stop lights.
Bottom: enchilada car with olive wheels, olive wheel spare tires, and a flag for the finish line, made from a left over tortilla (from the enchiladas) and preztel.
