We’re halfway to the weekend people! Cannot wait! How bout you??
This month the theme of WIAW is “Sensible Snacking” so today I’m sharing some recent snacks that have been on my table and in my belly!
First up: NACHOS! One of my all time top favorite snacks – especially in summer. Especially especially with one of these in hand. I make mine with cheese (duh!), black beans, and LOTS of jalapeños. Then when they come out of the oven I throw on tons to tomatoes, green onion, salsa, guac, and GREEK YOGURT. That’s right you won’t find me eating sour cream with my nachos. Greek yogurt tastes exactly the same (or better) and is much better for you! Try it!
When it gets hot outside, nothing sounds better than some COLD snackage. Lately I’ve beeb loving this homemade black bean dip. It goes great with veggies (or chips! but since this is sensible snacking I’ll stick with veggies )
My all time favorite summer time snack? Watermelon! I buy them 2 at a time! I cut one up so I have it on hand whenever I’m feeling snacky. Bonus: you actually DO get water from watermelon! So it’s the perfect snack to have when spending some time in the sun
We can’t be sensible ALL the time right?
This past Sunday my husband and I went to the San Francisco Giant’s baseball game. It was a perfect, sunny day in SF. Round the 6th inning Lou Seal (the Giant’s mascot) was throwing out bags of cracker jacks. Maybe not the most sensible snack, but Cracker Jacks, beer, ballgame, sun…doesn’t get much better than that! Oh, except if the Cracker Jacks are FREE! Thanks Lou!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
