      Thank you Brett for reading and taking the time to comment and share.

      Yes there is nothing nicer than eating your own homemade dinners. It is great the kids can help with the preparations too because they can enjoy it and appreciate the meal better

      These taste great, I've made similar before. It is also a good way for kids to get involved and to make their favorite snack a little healthier.

      SOCIALLY SHARED and voted up.
