WFMW: Snack Time

Thank you for all of your comments on my recent post regarding To-Do lists. One of my new daily/weekly to-do’s is preparing school snacks for the children. The children have a snack time at school prior to lunch so I will be adding school snacks to my weekly menu plan. This is my first attempt at sending them to school with a healthy snack in tow. Below they have two snacks lined up for this week.

Day 1~Colby and Monterrey Jack cheese wrapped in Pastrami on a tooth pick with mini-sweet pickles.

Day 2~Watermelon cubes with strawberry slices

I have approximately 20 pounds of watermelon, if any one has suggestions for recipes using watermelon please leave them for me. I would hate for the melon to go to waste.

Spread the love

  1. We made this last year & liked it (from Bon Appetit magazine). It's more of a summer drink but will be good if it's still warm where you live.

    Watermelon-Ginger Agua Fresca

    10 cups 1-inch pieces peeled watermelon (from about 8-pound watermelon)
    3 cups cold water, divided
    1/3 cup fresh lime juice
    1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger juice (from one 3-ounce piece of ginger)
    1/4 cup sugar (or more to taste)
    ice cubes
    lime wedges

    To make ginger juice, peel a 3-ounce piece of ginger and grate it over a plate. Wrap in cheesecloth; twist at both ends to squeeze out the juice. Or put grated ginger in a fine-mesh sieve and press.

    Place 2 1/2 cups watermelon and 3/4 cups cold water in blender. Puree until smooth. Pour agua fresca into large pitcher. Repeat three more times with remaining watermelon and cold water. Add lime juice, 1/4 cup sugar, and ginger juice to pitcher and stir to blend. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least three hours (can be made 8 hours ahead; keep chilled & stir before serving). Fill glasses with ice, pour agua fresca over & garnish with lime wedge.


  2. I’m looking forward to your snack ideas- we’re always trying to find something new for school snacks. As far as the watermelon goes I’d find a good sorbet recipe that can be made using a blender. Watermelon sorbet is so yummy (and it takes several pounds of melon per batch)

    Looks nice–hope they don’t get suspended for the tooth picks!


  4. Freeze the watermelon in chunks whizz it in the blender for drinks.

    This little cheese and pastrami things look lovely.


  5. What yummy & healthy snacks! I've never made anything with watermelon, so I'm not much help in that area.


  6. Hey Hadias!!!

    I am still faithfully reading and enjoying your blog, I just don’t always have time to comment. I always enjoy your WFMW posts a lot!!!

    I hope that whatever happens for your family in the education arena is something that works beautifully.
