Post Great Grains Cereal Bar Snack Recipe

My kids love when I make rice crispy treats at home.

That’s when it dawned on me … let’s create Post Great Grains Cereal Bar Snacks!

Odd Pregnancy Cravings

It’s suppose to be a joyous time, you are expecting baby and this little bundle of joy is growing inside of you. At your ultra sound appointments you have to wonder, is this an alien child, for it truly is nothing but a skull shape peeking at you through this computer like screen. You watch as your belly expands, your breasts grown and you are filled with love, worry, fear and the thoughts of what if you are not ready, all at once. For me, pregnancy was not bliss, but I am having fun watching my sister grow from a woman to a mother.

In just a few short weeks I will become an auntie to one little baby girl named Olivia and I can not wait to meet this little bundle of joy. I enjoy talking to my sister, helping the best I can to alleviate some fears, worries and concerns she has over her pregnancy and new “job” of being a Mom. I think she will do just fine. I am so proud of who she has become after where she has been.  I can not think of any odd pregnancy cravings that she has shared with me, but I do recall having some of my own with my first born child.

During the pregnancy of my daughter I would often crave a toasted english muffin with scrambled eggs and peanut butter as well as American cheese on top. A PB, egg and cheese mcmuffin if you will. It was the most delicious thing to me during those pregnancy months, but makes me wanna throw up a bit in my mouth at the thought of it now.

I didn’t really crave pickles with any of the pregnancies as some do. I didn’t have any of the normal cravings, so to speak. I also started to grow a love of spicy foods while pregnant with my first born. I recall going to Chili’s Restaurant and enjoying their buffalo wings so much. It was a messy treat, but wow I could not get enough of them. I also started to use crushed red pepper on mashed potatoes, pasta and anything that made sense to me, a habit that stayed with me long after that pregnancy.

With my sons, I have a hard time remember which was what, but I do recall craving deli meat ham with one of the boys. I would purchase the deli ham shredded and eat a whole pound in one seating. It was crazy. All of that sodium and fattening ham, but it was oh so delicious. I couldn’t eat enough of it.

The cravings of a pregnant woman must always be met, for we are not the friendliest of creatures if our man is not meeting our craving needs. Yes men, that means if you have a pregnant wife or girlfriend and she is craving ice cream with pickles? You get it for her. Don’t have it in the fridge and freezer? You best be packing up and grabbing those keys to run to the store for you are about to see sweet woman turned monster in 2.0.

I ask you all, what did you crave when you were pregnant? Or what did your significant other crave while she was pregnant?

Honey Maid® Grahamfuls Are Delicious

My family was able to test out Honey Maid® Grahamfuls not that long ago and well the boxes didn’t last that long.  You can choose from three varieties; Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, or Banana Vanilla Creme. My kiddos much preferred the Peanut Butter & Chocolate ones, then they ate up the Peanut Butter ones last but not least the Banana Vanilla Creme was gobbled up.

Honey Maid® Grahamfuls are a wonderful addition to any lunchbox, made with real Honey Maid graham crackers and 100% whole grain while also containing real honey these are certainly Mom approved. At least this Mom approves of them for a wonderful addition to my kiddos cold lunch for school.  There is no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors and also Honey Maid® Grahamfuls are a good source of calcium.

Each box of Honey Maid® Grahamfuls contains eight individually wrapped pouches and are available at your local grocery or superstores in the cookie and cracker aisle for a suggested retail value of $4.19 per box.

Learn more about Honey Maid® Grahamfuls at HoneyMaid.com

Disclosure: I received all three boxes for free. All opinions are my own.

Ritz Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Crackers

One day I had not realized that I ran out of bread but I did see we had Ritz Crackers, peanut butter and jelly. This would have to suffice and that day I created something for lunch that my kids have asked for more often than not…

Ritz PB&J Sandwich Crackers

Ingredients:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Rtiz Crackers

Needed Items:

  • Plate(s)
  • 2 Butter Knives – 1 for PB and 1 for Jelly

Get Started…

This is a pretty easy to make item, that is if you have ever made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich before. Simply use two Ritz Crackers as if they are bread. Use one butter knife to place peanut butter on one side of one cracker then use another knife to put jelly on one side of the other cracker. Put the two crackers together, place on a plate and serve with a fresh glass of milk.
**We used Low Sodium Ritz Crackers, feel free to use whatever type of Ritz Crackers your family enjoys.
