Healthy Christmas Tree Snack

We're back! We had a great time--the only bummer was that I lost my camera at Disney World. Boo! I'll hopefully have another one before Christmas, so don't worry! Tomorrow we'll pick a winner for Marcia's book giveaway!
In the meantime, look what Heather over at Little Nummies shared! How cute is this??! These would be so cute on little salad plates at a Holiday dinner--and the kids can help make them!


Snap Pea Trees
Ingredients:
Snap Peas
Cheese
Pretzel Sticks

Directions:
Arrange peas on a plate in the shape of a tree. Add a cheese star (cut with a cookie cutter or knife) and a pretzel stick trunk and your healthy snack just got a whole lot more fun!

Bonus idea: cut out cheese circles for ornaments and let your little one “decorate” the tree before eating it!

too too cute. pair it with a candlestick salad.
Candlestick Salad


2 packages (3 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon strawberry preserves
2 tablespoons mayonaise
12 big lettuce leaves
12 fresh or canned pineapple rings
6 medium to large bananas (FAIRLY STRAIGHT ONES)
12 fresh strawberries, stems removed

Beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Blend in strawberry preserves and mayonaise. Chill before using.

Arrange lettuce leaves on individual serving plates, and center a pineapple ring in the middle of each. Cut bananas in half, across the middle and peel carefully. Stand bananas upright (cut side down) and secure in the hole of each pineapple ring. Making a level slash, cut about 1/4 inch off top of each banana to provide a surface for resting the strawberry. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of chilled dressing over top and down sides of each banana "candle", to resemble melted wax. Perch strawberries on top of bananas, resembling the flame of the candle. Serve at once, using the remaining dressing. If strawberries do not balance well on top of the bananas, use toothpicks to anchor in place.

That is so cute! I don't like peas but I could do it with edamame!

I'm sorry you lost your camera at Disney World...that is as bad as my story-my husband BROKE my camera at Disney World. Like you I'm hoping to get a new one before Christmas!
