Monday Monday

There is just something about Monday's. I usually don't mind Mondays and since the Bachloar has started I somewhat love them. But today was a little hard... I did not go to sleep last night until 4 and the alarm went off at 7. And I just can't seem to get it all together.

I have about 15 lists going at the same time, and none are getting marked off.. oh wait, I just paid my car insurance. Now if I could get my drivers license, renew BOTH car tags, and bake a cake for a friend.:)

So when I went to pick up JH from school today we have a beautiful tag on our bag that says SCHOOL SNACK TOMORROW! Now that just energizes me. I love it! So I came home to get started.... hummm what is a girl to do! Everything I came up with was full of processed sugar and I am trying so hard to keep that away from the fam. SOOOOO... Butterfly Bags it is!

Here is the "recipe" if you want to give it a try!

What You Need
1 oz. KRAFT Cheddar Cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup whole strawberries, stems removed, quartered
1/4 cup seedless red or green grapes, cut in half

Make It

PLACE cheese in 1 side of resealable sandwich-size plastic bag; loosely tie pie cleaner or twist tie around middle of bag. Place fruit in other end of bag; seal bag, then twist pipe cleaner tightly to separate cheese from the fruit.

CURL ends of pipe cleaner to resemble antennae of a butterfly.

REFRIGERATE until ready to serve. Untwist pipe cleaner, leaving bag sealed. Gently shake bag to mix fruit and cheese. Open bag and enjoy!

Those are adorable and I love that they're healthy since my child is in your child's class! But, you're as crazy as ever b/c I HATE SNACK DAY!! And I think most of the other mothers in the world feel the same way. :)
