Healthy Kids' Snack

This post is part of a year-long partnership with the Netflix #StreamTeam. 

Call it a snack, call it a dessert--either way it's delicious. So I'm not complaining or anything, but it's been frigid here lately. This morning I walked outside to start the car in just a zip-up sweatshirt and my first thought was hey it's not too cold today! Then I read the thermostat in the car--2 degrees. Two! And I thought it felt nice out? That's a sad, sad story.

So anyway--we've been working on ways to have fun inside since the last time we played outside we almost got frostbite. Funny story! I really did get frostbite once. Most disgusting thing in the world. I'll save that story for a post without pictures of food. What can I say, I'm a good person.

To keep mundane-ness of days inside at bay we made a fun snack to eat while we snuggled up to our Netflix for the day. All you'll need to do the same is a banana, some peanut butter and candy coated sunflower seeds. You could use regular ones too, if you're not as fun as we are. (Just let yourself eat the chemical dye this one time. You can't win 'em all and it's totally worth it).

The first time Carter tried these sunflower seeds he deemed them "the worst candy ever," but today I caught him sneaking handfuls when he thought I wasn't looking so I'd say that was "the worst lie  story ever."

So let's catch up on our monthly Netflix, shall we?

Carter's watching: Care Bears
Amy's watching: Friends (duh), Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 
Tom's watching: Parks and Recreation

Friends needs to explanation other than the fact that I like to quiz myself to see if I remember what's going to happen in the next episode. I know I stored all that extremely important information in the back of my brain somewhere with the lyrics to "Smelly Cat" and 
"I made a man with eyes of coal 
And his smile was so bewitchin' 
How was I supposed to know
That my mom..." 

Funny story. So I've said a million times how I've had the same best friends since preschool. That song used to be our favorite to sing in the car so our moms made us change the lyrics from "my mom was dead in the kitchen" to "my mom was cooking in the kitchen." The two statements were basically equivalent.  

Therefore the no-cook "recipe" in this post is completely appropriate. It's delicious and fail-proof.
