LOVE that Tera Girl! This is a great list. I eat an apple and peanut butter on a regular basis.

Jennifer August 20, 2012 at 10:06 am

Same here Stephanie. IN fact, my son might start turning red and smelling like PB.

Thank You, thank you for this list!! It is so great to just have a good reminder of what I can grab other than my kids school snack bags of cheeze-its for a quick snack!

Jennifer August 20, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Admit Elizabeth, you are grabbing the cheeze-its. ;)

Jenn August 20, 2012 at 1:53 pm

These all sound like great options! I’m partial to apples and peanut butter!

Sarah {Soxys Diamond} August 20, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Great list! I, also, eat apples and peanut butter on a regular basis (but I prefer Granny Smith, so I may turn green Jennifer!)
I also love making popcorn (NOT in the microwave!) and putting a little garlic salt on it.

Thanks for the LOVE girls! Though I feel like your love of apples and PB outweigh your love of me ;)
