Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #20 -- Snack Time!
Carly of the blog Ellipsis has assigned Monday Photo Shoot participants the subject "Snack Time!" to photograph and talk about. This is a new favorite snack of mine, discovered on New Year's Eve day when I was shopping and found a small package of snack size Tillamook black pepper white cheddar cheese that looked good. I thought it would be excellent with garlic roasted Triscuit crackers and so I picked some of them up, too. I eat a cheese slice sandwiched in between two crackers and it is delicious! Here I have a plate full of cheese slices (my last ones) and crackers, which I will snack on this afternoon.
A later addition (because it was a later snack), diabetic cocoa and toast:
To make the diabetic cocoa, I used the recipe for individual microwave cocoa on the Hershey's cocoa can but substituted 5 packets of Equal for the sugar. I spritzed whipped cream from a can on top. Yum!
For extra credit, we were to show our favorite dish, bowl or tray to serve the snack on, and I have the cheese and crackers on one of my favorites -- a dessert dish that goes with my tea rose stoneware from Pfaltzgraff. I love the flowers on it and the scallops around the edge.
If you would like to participate, go to Carly's site, which I linked in the first sentence, and get into the game! It's a lot of fun!
