Nom Nom.

October 5, 2012


Our children,like most,love snacking on crisps and sweet things.However their hands down favourite snack is a fresh,chilled cucumber,peeled in stripes to make it look pretty (their request,not mine),lightly rubbed in sea-salt and jammed down on a chopstick. Quick,cheap,easy,ever so healthy and requested more than any other snack…..Sometimes I wonder if they really are my kids.Right,off to find some chocolate.

    Deb and Mick’s smalls also love their cucumber. Favourite lunch is “bits and bobs”. A healthy assortment of salad, cheese and sometimes ham. Of course, as Deb, Jonathan and Matthew had, a few sweets after the evening meal are also very welcome! Not sure about the salt on cucumber, ours do not have access to this. Xxxx

      Good point about the salt; I only add it due to to extreme heat as it helps to prevent dehydration.So the salt is a “seasonal extra”,as it were,lol.

    What a great idea! Now it only I could convince myself it was yummier than chocolate I could fit into a new size!

      It’s the “Crunch” that you have to appreciate(according to Emilie;) )

    You are welcome!I got the idea from the KA group over on FB.Someone posted about them and hey presto,we had a new “favourite”!Perfect over summer and hopefully the girls can enjoy some more before the price of cucumbers goes sky high…
