School is out for Summer

Which means my grocery  bills practically double, ahhhhh!
To try and cut the costs I am making a huge effort to make food instead of buy the unhealthy fillers the kids love so much.
I stumbled upon a recipe for poptarts and immediately knew this one was a keeper. My kids love poptarts and only on rare occasion do I buy them. So today they made their breakfast..



And Mommy got the  left over scraps baked with a little dash of cinnamon and brown sugar



And just in case you are wondering.......




My secret triangle pile is still growing!

Thanks Kirsty for hosting

I'm thinking that Mommy's "leftovers" look quite the hero in this lot. YUM.

Great move making your kids' food. It's so much tastier isn't it? Love the look of all those triangles piling up! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

The triangle pile is looking good. Making our own is something we always try to do here too. Its fun and yummier I reckon. Yay for mommy leftovers too.

Yes, isn't it amazing how they can come home with a nearly full lunch box, but on the hols they'll eat twice as much before lunch!
The tarts look good ... love pastry.

Pop-tarts! Yum! Do they have lovely shiny frosting on top, too? :) Your triangles are looking good...

I *adore* your caravan Amanda. I don't think I've actually been over in a while (I read in google reader) and it's looking spiffy. As are those pop tarts. Droooool.

YUM homemade pop tarts sounds amazing!! Can you come cook me breaky haha. The only problem is that the kids will expect them all the time now. Looking forward to seeing what you make with all those triangles.
