Not really, but....the alternative is grocery shopping, and with the prices of some things - I can bake much better!
On Tuesday, I stopped at Aldi's. Didn't need much but a few snack type foods for Todd's lunches. 2 boxes of nutty bars and a box of hoho's (the generic ones from Aldi's), 2.97 later I'm out of there. Figured this would get me to the weekend when I could think of some good baking snacks and actually go grocery shopping.
Only to have them be ALL GONE after packing his lunch this morning. What the heck. So today right after getting home from work, I made:
Homemade granola bars:
Strawberry jello with peaches:
Rice krispy treats:
And baked spaghetti casserole for dinner.
Now, normally, I would leave the pans sit out on the counter (for the granola bars and krispy treats) but since I want these to last for a couple days, I'm going to cut them up and put them in containers and put them in the snack cupboard. We'll see if they last any longer that way. My reasoning is they (Todd and kids) won't eat so much if they actually have to open the cupboard, open the container, take out a treat, close the container and put it back in the cupboard.
Think it will work?????
