My Version of Ants on a Log

Figs on a Log
This is a terrible picture, looks like a train wreck! But I was so hungry I just started throwing stuff on my plate. I really wanted some celery with nut butter and raisins but I changed my mind and decided to use cut up dried black mission figs. Wow was it good. I used Artisana Raw Macadamia Butter with Cashews on the celery, topped them with the figs and some honey, that I got up in North Carolina. Organic apple slices and sprouts just sounded good so I had those too. There you have it, that was my lunch. Nothing complicated, just good raw living foods. I had three little boys all eyeballing my plate. :)
~JMJ~ Today I am grateful for kids in the kitchen. I had no idea what gluten free meal to make the kids tonight so I asked my 13 year old son to create a dish. He told me how to put together a chicken dish that they all loved. We named it after him and it has gone in their gluten free and raw recipe binder. Way to go Mitchell!!

We have incorporated so much celery in our diet this year, it has been great. Love your ants on a log. I really like that you involve the children in cooking, I think that is so important...good job Mom.:)

I love cooking/uncooking with the kids. Even the 2 year old likes to get involved. It is just hard when you are trying to rush to get a meal on the table!! So I try to involve them only when I don't have to rush. That way we all enjoy the experience.
Thanks for stopping by!!
