quick snack anyone?


We created a great, refreshing pick-me-up this afternoon. Its already nearly 100 degrees here and the humidity is horrible. I try to keep the girls from going outside during the heat of the day–but since their appetites are constant– we have to keep the calories down some too. Today, they wanted something sweet! Surprise huh?! We called this our Fruit Boat. Jello fat-free vanilla pudding, mixed it up w skim milk, Add your favorite fruit fresh or frozen (one had blueberries/ the other chose bananas). Put in a dessert cup( for our purpose we made them in banana split dish so they’d look like boats), add graham sticks(their oars) and dallop of cool whip.(The driver) Add orange wedges to each side (the seats). Tada!! They loved it!!! Good fruit and fun to eat too!

About tweenspot

I am like so many moms raising young girls, scared I'm doing the right thing and learning with pure amazement at the same time! I feel like I have become my mother (don't we all)..my favorite phrase is "today things are so different than when I/we grew up". The absolute hysteria in that phrase scares me too. I don't want to be scared. I like to think that as a professional, working, college educated women that I can embrace the world we live in. That's why I have been researching Tweens, what they like, do, what's hot and what's trends are going to cost me a fortune in the future! My little girls are the love of my life. By creating this blog, I want a safe internet place for girls and moms to share. This blog is in the infancy stage, but I have big plans for it. So stay tuned.... Read, enjoy, comment. Visit as often as you'd like. I hope together we can build a community for girls and moms to explore, learn and share with one another.
