Today, I’m participating in my very first Google+ Hangout! I’ve been a passive participant a few times, watching others in their hangouts, but I’ve never actually been an active participant in a Google+ hangout, so when my friend Lexie from Lexie’s Kitchen asked if I’d join her and few other ladies, I said sure! The topic for today is Surviving Thanksgiving Day with a House Full of Kids.
I’ll be sharing some Afternoon Kid Snack and Appetizer Recipe Ideas, and the other ladies will be sharing Thanksgiving Day crafts, The Kid’s Table (setting, decorating), and Morning Kid Snack and Appetizers.
Check out our hangout, Thanksgiving Day Survival Tactics with Lexie’s Kitchen, on YouTube.
On Thanksgiving Day, it’s a tradition in our house for my boys and hubby to watch football before we sit down for our Thanksgiving feast. I’ve gotten better about prepping ahead the night before so I don’t spend the entire day cooking and baking, but it always helps to have something for the boys to snack on while I’m getting our Thanksgiving meal ready.
Quick hearty dips are a great way to keep everyone happy until we sit down for our Thanksgiving meal. My kids (and hubby) love football snacks so I’ve come up with some healthier versions of some classics over the last couple of years.
When I originally tried making this popular dip healthier, I made a blue cheese dressing to layer on top of this dip. To make this recipe even easier, I left out the blue cheese dressing and simply crumbled some blue cheese on top of the strained Greek yogurt – so easy!
What do you make to keep your kids’ bellies at bay while you prepare Thanksgiving Dinner?
