Disney Hits a Home Run!

I’m always on the lookout for healthy foods that my family will eat. I am also a huge Disney fan–and future Disney Vacation Club member!

A few weeks ago, I was at the grocery store, and I spotted Mickey Mouse’s smiling face on a packet. Aha! I thought. I pulled down the packet to see they’re called “fruit crisps.” Uhoh, I thought. They’re probably loaded with sugar.

To my delight when I turned over the package, I discovered there’s no sugar at all! The only ingredient is freeze-dried apples. When I gave them to my son Austin (age three), who is also a huge Mickey Mouse fan, he loved them! And not just a little bit. He ate three packets, each containing 1 1/2 apples, in one sitting!

The Fruit Crisps must be very popular because our grocery store can’t keep them in stock. I ordered a case of 24 single-serving packets on amazon.com. When the box came today, Austin was thrilled. He’s already eaten one packet, and so have I. Way to go Disney!

Food: The Best Gift Ever

My mom was in town close to my birthday recently. The dreaded “What do you want for your birthday?” came up. Our home is small, so I insisted nothing I had to find a place for. Nothing I can’t consume or throw away. Then I said it, “Can you cook for me and freeze a couple meals?” I was going to be away working during parts of the visit and Mom put on the apron and filled my freezer with pouches of hearty beef stew, silky vegetable soups, spaghetti sauces and more. It was the BEST GIFT EVER!!!

Families are busy, and anything that can help get a home-made, delicious meal on the table quickly is amazing. Can’t tell you how great it was on a busy day to pull out a soup, bake a loaf of bread and make a salad. Thanks Mom! It wasn’t just food, it was a gift of sanity and more time to enjoy with my family.

Would you feel comfortable asking your family and friends to help out with a few meals? What about a meal circle? A gift for a new mom, or a mom in transition with work, marriage, housing?
