Seasonal tradition


We are fast approaching the time of year when everything seems to revolve around food. In particular, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas. What are some of your favorite family food traditions from this time of year? What un-traditional things have you added to your holiday menu?

So, for those who have seen Parker, mine and Marina's brother, we know how skinny that kid is. He also eats immense amount of food. However, he has one snack that I think, if allowed, he would live on forever: Graham crackers with peanut butter and nutella.


Graham crackers (regular is preferred, but cinnamon, chocolated, etc are acceptable.)
Jar of Peanut Butter
Jar of Nutelle (available in most grocery stores.)

Spreading knife (butter knife.)
Cup (for the milk)
Massive amounts of napkins

1. Fill glass with milk.
2. Take one full graham cracker and snap it in two to make two, equally sized halves.
3. On one half, evenly spread peanut butter
4. On second half, evenly spread nutella.
5. Smoosh halfs together in sandwich fashion
6. Dip in milk for 2-3 seconds.
7. Enjoy.

Though it seems simple and self-explanitory, this snack is filling, fatty, and fantastic. Good for growth, both vertically and horizontally.

Boil about 8 oz of Orzo till its al dente. Remove from heat, add some frozen peas to the hot water. While the Peas are warming, in a bowl dump 1/3 c. Olive Oil and Vinegar salad dressing, a package of crumbled feta (i used garlic herb), and if you so desire, fresh mint/garbanzo beans/tuna/whatever turns you on.

Drain the Orzo and Peas, dump into the bowl, mix well and serve.
