Snacks and stuff: a team effort

Thursday, January 30, 2014

It seems like watching movies is never complete without having some sort of snack nearby. Josh and I tend to watch movies before bed (most of the time) and if there is something snacky like popcorn or my favorite-chips-they will be eaten. It is almost like the two go hand in hand. Literally.

As of late I've been trying to think of ways to make yummy movie snacks that do not take long to prep, that he and I can make. That is one of the most awesome things about him. He gives me cooking lessons and I've openly admitted that I am not one for cooking and my abilities are limited (even though I've been told that I don't give myself enough credit in that department). I spent the morning scouring spark recipes looking for nom nom-y movie snacks that we can make. I've found some (like trail mixes or variations on the chex mix. and also hummus. I would kill for some hummus to use as chip dip instead of the store bought stuff right now) and have also gotten on this slight kick to alter our pizza that we came up with. The original version is not what you would call healthy at all because of the white sauce and the amount of meat that goes on it (but since it's made very infrequently I figure splurging on that once in a blue moon is alright).

Both of us could stand to loose some weight and since movies and cooking lately have been a team effort I think this is a good thing.

    there are some good recipes here on this site .... I got hooked, as did my son and grandson, on the low fat zucchini brownies ... oh my they are so good .... very filling and just look so chocolately .... another good item is the apple crisp -- I condensed it to the apples sliced and then put my cinnamon and sugar mix on it then spread oatmeal on top ...put some liquid can't believe it's not butter on the top and cook in the oven for 30 minutes ... once we added a little bit of apple juice to make it a bit wetter ... good good good .... rocie
