It was our turn to bring mid-game snack for BB's soccer team.  
I chose oranges and apples....
However, I didn't want the apple slices to brown 
before half I decided to try out a tip I found on Pinterest. 
It suggested soaking apple slices in a lemon-lime soda 
for 10 minutes. 

...sooooo, I tried it...

There was still some browning
but not nearly as much as I think there would have been.
I've come across a few other tips 
that use a slightly different method
to prevent browning...
I will give those a try next time!

Breakfast Banana Split

You heard right...a banana split for breakfast!
BB was super surprised to have this meal and he ate it up!

crunchy cereal (may leave out next time or use granola)
pineapple chunks
sliced strawberries
optional fun toppings: maraschino cherries, sprinkles
*of course you could also use other berries and fruit that you enjoy as well as a few nuts!

Slice banana and place in the bottom of a bowl.
Top banana with yogurt then fruit, sprinkle on cereal, top with a few cherries and sprinkles.

More Pumpkin...

I am not big on pumpkins...
I like to decorate with them for fall
but that is about it.
I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie
or the ever popular pumpkin spice latte,
But one of the items on my
is to try a pumpkin beer
...just because.
I guess I am trying to embrace
the flavor that is all over the place this time of year!
So, I had a Shocktop Pumpkin Wheat beer recently...
and it was pretty tasty.
Not my favorite flavor, but not bad either.
Maybe I will give some more 
pumpkin flavored food and drinks a try...
any suggestions?

this simple but fun snack!
