I have often wondered why people would be interested in such simple recipes. I have now decided that sometimes we just get in a rut and need some inspriation, no matter how simple. Once while reading the kids a book, we read of a family that rolled out store bought biscuits and then made mini-pizzas. Totally simple...but I would never have thought to make a biscuit pizza. I don't know if it is a home school phenomena or what...but my kids expect more than a sandwich, more than just an apple. Maybe they are just spoiled. Today we made smoothies for a mid-morning snack. The boy is hungry all the time. He would probably starve to death if I sent him to school :O)
