Snack Attack

Who me?  Just havin’ a snack.   Sometimes I eat dinner early just so I KNOW I’ll be hungry enough for snacks later in the night.  THAT is how much I love a good snack.  My snack of choice is the perennial potato chip.  Anything made out of a potato really.

I think it probably goes back to the fond memories I have of my mother chasing me around the house with a big, long creepy eye from a rotten potato screaming “LOOK!!!  A SCARY BUG!!  DON’T LET IT GET YOU!!”.  Betty  isn’t your average mom.

In case you need a little snack inspiration …

#1 I loved it in Kindergarden – I love it now.

crackers, apple slices, cheese

#2  Just a little bowl. Mmmm, soup.

Broccoli soup with a few garlic croutons

#3  If you have a leftover slice of pizza, don’t throw it out or worse – shove it in your face when you aren’t even hungry anymore.  Freeze it and save it for an emergency snack situation.  Re-heat it in a non-stick pan then slice into tiny slivers and eat it up.

#4    I’m not a cop, but I am Canadian.

coffee & a donut

#5  I took these as a snack to an Interior Design show once – they were more popular than the Ghost chair.

Mini Banana

    My friend, who lives in a small town but works in the city, sent mini bananas from a fancy grocery store to her kid’s school for his snack day. The other kids FREAKED OUT. Everybody wanted more. For the next month she had highly irritated small-town moms saying, “Okay, Williams. Where the HELL did you get the little bananas?”

    I love your hilarious, inspiring site. Gives me something to blog up to! Thank you, thank you.

      Thanks for the compliments! I truly appreciate it. When I read the kids were freaked out, I thought you meant they were frightened of the small bananas! Which would kind of be understandable. They certainly startled me when I first saw them.

  2. I don’t even like bananas and I want them!! So cute!

    As you can tell (I’m sure), I am catching up on my reading. 🙂

    I can’t wrap my Jamaican mind around a ripe green-skinned banana, but if you say it’s edible, I’ll take your word for it. Ours are usually bright yellow (except frog bananas, which are red-skinned).
