One of the nicest things about this salad is the combination of textures and flavors. Another nice thing is the taste. And the third nice thing (I'm beginning to feel like Monty Python here) is how easy it is to make. And you can vary the ingredients to suit your child's taste! (I guess that's four nice things!)
6. M&M Cookies
These cookies are like a hyped up Chocolate Chip Cookie! You can use specialty M&M candies to make these cookies too - for instance, choose your child's school colors, or use orange, red, and brown M&Ms for Halloween treats. Yum.
This is an excellent soup to have for dinner on a cold fall night - you come home to the most wonderful aromas. Then, the next morning, reheat leftovers and pack into a warmed thermos. Add a bag of tortilla chips or corn chips and some baby carrots or sliced pears, and your child will have a wonderful and nutritious lunch that he will eat!
I remember the first time I saw these little goodies in Brownies (the first step in the Girl Scout family). It's so descriptive, yet not gross at all! And the combination of crunchy celery, smooth and rich peanut butter, and chewy little dried cherries or raisins is really good. Kids love them!
