Planning a wintry escapade this weekend? Whether you're heading out cross country skiing or downtown for some ice skating, here are a few snacks to tuck in your pockets! When it's too cold to take off our mittens, we like to have a few snacks that are easily accessible and won't leave a lot of crumbs: • Crunchy Granola BarsDIY Nutrigrain Fruit and Nut BarsGingersnap CookiesHusband Winning Peanut Butter CookiesBagels - halved and spread with cream cheese (also try this quicker version) Also high on our list of mitten-friendly foods are soups kept steaming hot in a thermos. Here are ones that can be sipped directly from the thermos - no spoon required! • Cream of Winter Squash and Tomato SoupRutabaga Chipotle SoupPotato-Leek SoupSweet Potato Soup with Miso and GingerSpinach and Lemon Soup with Orzo If you have an extra thermos, pack a warm drink to wash everything down: • Four Latte Recipes - better than Starbucks! • Homemade Chai TeaAlton Brown's Malted CocoaHot Apple-Ginger ToddyMulled Wine What do you like to nibble and sip when you're having fun in the snow?
