Feed Them Fridays

The granola bars we made a few weeks ago were a big hit, and we have continued to make them.  (Although, just as an aside, these are not so awesome in 90+ degree temperatures.  They kind of lose their 'bar' shape and become more of a sticky mess).

In non-melted status, they look a little something like this:

We also took the girls blueberry picking:

So, in addition to having fresh blueberries for snacks, and frozen blueberries for smoothies, we made blueberry muffins.  Yummy!

Blueberry picking was much more enjoyable than strawberry picking.  We didn't need to crawl around on the ground.  There were plenty at our height and also at the perfect height for the kids to pick.  My kids didn't even squish too many, which is HUGE for Sweet Pea.  It could have gone so horribly wrong.  

I've kind of fallen off the cooking ahead wagon.  Last week the temperatures looked like this:

So, really?  Smoothies with frozen fruit was about as ambitious as I got last week.   I'm working on my plan now for next week.  I'm feeling like we're in a rut for lunches, so I'm looking for some awesome new blogs/websites with kid friendly, healthy meal ideas.

Hi Kim, found your blog on Blog Frog! I've been wanting to get my kids out to our local orchard to pick some berries (or early apples) as well but we too have been battling a horrible heat wave here in Indiana too! Enjoyed the read and looking forward to more!
