Homeschool Memoirs: #7 Snack Foods

Photobucket

The theme this week is snack foods. Here are some of the things we much on:

Peanuts
Dehydrated zucchini chips (sometimes with spaghetti sauce, yum)
Dried apples
Yogurt
Smoothies or milkshakes made with dry milk or sometimes eggs for extra protein
Cottage cheese when it’s in the house
Carrot sticks
Popcorn
Peanut butter on a spoon
Frozen chocolate chips (Susan does this too)
Homemade ice cream (from the in-laws’ house)
Sometimes we have cookies or other baked goods in the house, but those are kept in the freezer. I have a hard time leaving them alone, so I try not to make them very often. Then they usually go right in the freezer – so the temptation to eat a bunch is diminished.

  1. Angie, we found out about them by looking something else up, lol! We now have a gallon pickle jar full of zucchini chips. Our dehydrator would only hold 2-3 zukes at a time, so it ran pretty much constantly for a while.
    They have a pretty different flavor, but I like them, and they’re healthy. It works.

  2. I wish I had known about dehydrated zucchini chips a month ago, when our bountiful harvest was all over the counter tops. :o)

  3. Susan, we like peanut butter like that too. :O)
    The raw eggs took me a while. Even now, I’m picky about it – I only like to use the eggs from our birds – because I know exactly how they were raised and how fresh the eggs are. Storebought eggs ick me out a little bit.
    As for the flavor – they add a richness, but that’s about it. I actually like a sugar free chocolate milkshake (ice, milk, cocoa, sweetener) better WITH an egg in it!

  4. I’ve never had the courage to eat/drink anything with a raw egg in it! My husband loves peanut on anything – even on a spoon! 😉
