Silly Snack Dinner.

It's sweeping the nation. All the cool moms are doin' it.

It's no secret that I'm not a whiz in the kitchen. My least favorite meal is dinner [a/k/a "the witching hour"] mainly because I'm exhausted and the kids are falling apart. So, I borrowed "Snack Plate" from my SIL and created "Silly Snack Dinner".

What is Silly Snack Dinner, you ask? Well, anything you want to make it. It can be kids' choice. "Barrett, you pick something that starts with the letter B, Ansley you pick something that starts with the letter A." Broccoli and Apples. Bananas and Asparagus. Great! Or it can be what my parents called "leftovers" when I was growing up. Doesn't Silly Snack Dinner have a more appealing ring to it than LEFTOVERS???

Dad working late tonight? Then Silly Snack Dinner it is. Tonight's SSD consisted of hard boiled eggs, unsweetened applesauce, whole wheat toast and grits from last evening. Everyone ate with gusto. One dinner down, a million more to go.

Exactly how many times per month do you think I can get away with SSD before they're on to me??
