A Blast From the Past

These days, everyone tries to be a gourmet.  You either know how to cook Tuna Tartare or you don't think you can cook at all.  Ha Ha.  That was a joke...you don't cook Tuna Tartare.  Anyway, our grandmas weren't gourmets, yet they knew how to feed their families.  Remember these snacks that used to be hanging around?

Relish trays...My Grandma had a pretty dish of carrots, cucumbers, celery, etc. at every lunch.
Homemade pickles...dill or sweet, gotta love 'em
Celery and Peanut Butter or cream cheese
Toast...the original instant breakfast
Egg Salad...much cheaper and less salty than cold cuts
Deviled eggs...another hubby favorite
Fresh or frozen fruit for dessert
Small juice glasses for orange or grapefruit juice
Bread and butter for sides and snacks

Add some of these to your meals this week.  Most are really good ways to up your fruit and veggie intake, and they're cheap, easy, and tasty.
