Recipe: Muesli Slice

Miss 11 enjoys lunch boxes as much as I do and often comes home with requests of what friends have in their lunch boxes.  Thankfully I’ve got great friends who share their winning recipes with me.  This recipe is a winner with Miss 11 and her bestie so I’m sure it will be a hit with your kids too.  I made a batch and popped some in the freezer for those days when the cupboard is bare.

RECIPE: Baked Zucchini Chips

Master 9 has enjoyed growing zucchinis and tomatoes over summer and we’ve just enjoyed the last of them with this recipe in April.  I love that the garden brings him so much joy and I love watching him burst with pride when I serve a dish made from his harvest.  Of course, this year we have had to endure a puppy who too enjoys the garden but also likes to relocate our crops.  Needless to say, this year’s harvest was even more rewarding having survived a hot summer and a digging, chewing puppy.  If you love zucchini or are planning on growing some next summer then save this recipe.
