snack i do eggy bread when i's cold and i haven't plan my diner so it'll be late :blush:

i make a plate with cucumber and cream crakers around and humus in middle and leave them to do the dipping lo like being part of the big ones gang at the coffee table!:D

I'm going to make some of the others Tutututut but i also have chocolate spread and hot chocolate drink like we used to in france :D

mixed fruit bowl

toast for the naughty day (misbehaving children)

bread and jam choice of jams

it all depends if you're feeding the kids in the evening.

morning snack are always really light as we eat at 12 and some children have late breakfast and can't really cope with snak and lunch.
dried fruit and fresh fruit, biscuit, bread stick, cheese and olives:D

Main meals are things like sausages, fahitas, curry, nuggets, cottage pie, casseroles, roast dinners, fish pie,pasta bake, spag bog etc

Lunches are usually sandwiches, something on toast or soup

Snacks are fruit, yogurts, rice cakes, crumpets, breeadsticks etc

I think we all sometimes feel like we cook the same things over and over again!
