October 22 – Bake some apples

October 22, 2010

Welcome to AP Month!

Core four baking apples (down to ¼ inch from the bottom of the apple).  Peel and remove skin from top ¼ of apple.  Place apples in baking dish.  Mix 1 cup water, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 tsp. and pour over and into apples.  Place a small pat of butter into each apple.  Pour 1 ½ tsp. maple syrup into each apple.  Combine 1 tsp. cinnamon and ¼ tsp. nutmeg and sprinkle into and over apples.  Bake uncovered for 35 – 45 minutes.  (As apples bake, baste 2 – 3 times with apple juices.)

My kids love slices of apple and slices of organic, raw-milk cheddar eaten together in little “sandwiches.” I love roasted pumpkin seeds at this time of year — very satisfying!

I need that book because I’m always trying to think of new healthy snack ideas! I don’t have any good recipes! Although one snack we discovered our son likes is chips (we try to get ‘healthy’ ones) and a guacamole/salsa dip.

Some berries, bananas and yogurt all in the blender. To be drunk with a straw!

I am going to have to saute some apples since our oven is on the fritz!

Recipe for a favorite snack: Sliced persian cucumbers with a little kosher salt. Simple and satisfying. I have them available to eat along with other crunchy veggies while I am finishing dinner. It’s a great way to get those veggies into their tummies.

I have been searching for healthy, fun, simple snack ideas that will get my daughter’s attention. I sometimes use a tiny ducky cookie cutter to make duck-shaped cheese slices and she gobbles up every one (after making it “quack” of course!).
