I was at Target yesterday, on the way home from a long (but fun) afternoon of Irish dance at a friend's house. John is out-of-town and I was starting to think about dinner somewhere around 5:45.
I decided I needed something easy but not terribly unhealthy. Too much of that lately and I wasn't feeling so good after all of that!
I decided to think a little European. (At least it sounded sort of European). We had lots of cheddar cheese at home. I picked up a large can of fancy mixed nuts at Target. Then I dropped by our new local grocery store and picked up apples, grapes, a couple loves of nice bread, grape juice and a little bit of some fancy cheese that the kids love (strawberry peach stilton).
When we got home, I popped the bread in the oven 350 degrees for 15 minutes (including preheating time) while I cut and washed the other things as needed. The spread was colorful, tasty and reasonably healthy - and the kids loved it!
