After hanging up my bunny ears for the year, it is time to start thinking about SUMMER! Seems like we have waited a long time to enjoy nice weather. Winter in Wisconsin is no joke. This year wasn’t as snowy as most, nor as cold, but it was still cloudy, cool and depressing outside. Sunshine is here today and we are planning home improvement projects and our big summer parties. 
Since party planning is once again at the forefront, I’ve started a list of nut-free, healthy snack party ideas:

  1. Chex Mix (check label, muddy buddies are NOT safe)
  2. Hummus and vegetable sticks
  3. Giant sliced water melon with sea salt and mint
  4. Melon ball salad 
  5. Cucumber and tomato Greek salad
  6. Fruit salad
  7. Fruit tray with yogurt dip (chobani)
  8. Blueberry oat muffins
  9. Banana flax muffins
  10. Yogurt parfait bar

Today is more of a brainstorm day I guess. I started the morning off with a double espresso and I have so much energy – thinking we are tackling the garden first, errands, then something fun with the kids. What are your favorite party snacks? Of course we need to nail down the theme. So far, we have:

  1. Super hero party
  2. Pirates
  3. Luau

Enjoy your Sunday. I’ll post the weekly menu shortly for inspiration 🤗
