get smart

Sophie is taking exams this week.
I couldn't walk a day in Sophie's academic shoes and I've told her so.
I'm really proud of her.
To prepare for exam week, I've stocked our pantry with some of
her favorites. It's the least I can do.
Here are a couple of other good snack recipes for the studious
young people in your home.

Orange Cream Smoothie

1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. orange juice
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. vanilla frozen yogurt
1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks before you freeze
3 T. orange juice concentrate

Serves 4

PB Snacks - Lamplighter Family Cookbook

1/3c. peanut butter
2 T butter
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. ginger
5 c. popped popcorn
2 c. Rice Chex cereal
1 c. mini pretzels
1 c. M&M's or raisins or other
candy they enjoy

Directions: In a small microwaveable bowl, combine peanut butter, cinnamon and ginger.
Microwave until the butter melts and mix well. In a 9x13 baking dish, combine popcorn
cereal and pretzels. Pour peanut butter mixture over & toss until well coated.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, stirring halfway thru cooking time.
Cool to room temp, then stir in candy and/or raisins. Makes 8 cups.
Note to Sophie's pal Taylor.
Sorry you can't have this one. I'll try to find an allergy
friendly recipe for you, ok?

And last, a kid deserves a study break now and then.
How about the latest from VeryMaryKate?
