January is the month to enjoy indoor retreat with your kiddos. Cuddling on the couch with a blanket and popcorn is one of my very favourite ways to spend an evening with my family.
This month on Netflix, Puss In Boots swashbuckles on to the bigscreen with brand new adventures.
Why not make this fantastic breakfast or snack while enjoying a new flick.
Puss in Boots Peanut Butter and Fruit Toast
2 slices of multigrain bread (You could also use rice cakes.)
1 tablespoon peanut butter (or non-nut butter, like sesame, for those with allergies)
½ pear, quartered as well as finely sliced
1 raspberry, sliced
Toast both slices of bread. If you’re using rice cakes, omit this first step.
Spread peanut butter (or non-nut butter) on one piece of bread.
Using a paring knife, cut the shape of a top hat out of the second slice of bread. We used a slice of banana as the feather in his cap. However, you could use any fruit you have available including apple, pear, or an orange slice. All you need to do is use a dab of your butter of choice as “glue” to fasten it to the toast hat.
For the eyes, we used pear and then added a pecan for the pupil but almonds, walnuts, raisins or dried blueberries would work too.
The whiskers for Puss require small slices of pear or apple so keep tiny hands busy with another part of his face.
Finally, craft the perfect little kitty nose out of raspberry (I bet a strawberry would also work great).
Serve on a plate with a big glass of milk, of course.
