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 Bars • DIY Nutrigrain Fruit and Nut Bars • Gingersnap Cookies • Husband Winning Peanut Butter Cookies • Bagels - 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 Soup • Rutabaga Chipotle Soup • Potato-Leek Soup • Sweet Potato Soup with Miso and Ginger • Spinach 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 Tea • Alton Brown's Malted Cocoa • Hot Apple-Ginger Toddy • Mulled Wine
What do you like to nibble and sip when you're having fun in the snow?
