All the flavors of a Reuben sandwich in a delicious little bite! The perfect appetizer for St. Patrick’s Day or game day!
Kids. As much as I love them, there are definitely some things that are just more fun without them. Like going out to eat. Grocery shopping. Talking on the phone. Or….if you’re Jorden….watching football.
I have to admit – since I’m not a huge football fan, it’s not something I totally understand. For me, having the kids watch the game with us is no big deal! In fact, for me, it’s probably more fun with them than it is without them. But for Jorden, it’s another story.
Case in point: last weekend. The first Packer game of the season. We had cancelled plans with friends (boo) because I had some work to get done…..and Jorden was watching the game by himself. Until, that is, a gaggle of kids came in from outside and decided to watch it with him. He nearly lost his mind! Because….like I said….some things are just more fun without kids. And Packer games are definitely high on that list.
Lucky for everyone, I was there to intervene. I turned on a separate TV for the kids….in the other room….and got out some snacks and drinks. And just like that, peace was restored. In the future I will know to set it up that way from the get go. Not only the separate viewing spaces, but the snacks! Because if there’s one thing that’s true, it’s that a delicious snack can go a long way.
We’ve recently fallen in love with The Laughing Cow spreadable cheese, and we’ve been using it on everything! Our latest favorite? These Mini Reuben Bites! They have all the flavors of a reuben sandwich in one delicious little bite. The perfect way to “reinvent snacking” on game day or any day! And totally appropriate for kids….although possibly more fun without them. I’ll let you decide!
