Happy New Year!

|Pomegranate Limeaid, sweet potato chips, GF crackers, uncured ham, goat cheese|
For a winter snack, I did mini Lunchables-style cracker-stackers with snowflake shapes. I used a tiny circle cutter on some uncured ham and a mini snowflake fondant cutter on sliced goat cheese, and sent them with some mini savory crackers from Trader Joe's.
Since I was ready to jab an ice pick into my brain after cutting just 36 hams and cheeses (3 per student,) I sent a bag of sweet potato chips to fill them up. And Z looooooves Trader Joe's Pomegranate Limeaid, so I made sure to get some for her week as "Snack Helper." Because pomegranates and sweet potatoes are seasonal in the winter!
|Sunbutter Crunch bars, organic hummus, organic sugar snap peas and carrots|
And since it starts getting sunny in the Spring, I also sent some Enjoy Life Sunbutter Crunch bars. I didn't send a drink because the juice jugs last two days if the teacher puts it in the fridge overnight. Which she does. I love this teacher!
|Organic pink lemonade, organic yogurt tubes, vegan rice crispy treats with GF pretzel sticks|
For the rice crispy treats, I used Erewhon crispy brown rice cereal because they're gluten-free (the Trader Joe's brand isn't) and free of petrochemicals (Rice Krispies has a petroleum-derived preservative.) I made them with Dandies vegan marshmallows (one of the two brands I've ever found without artificial Blue 1 food dye) and dairy-free Earth Balance organic buttery spread (I'm intolerant to dairy) using this rice crispy treats recipe.
