Thanks for visiting 5 after 5 co-hosted by Lisa over at Syncopated Mama and Samantha over at Motivated Days. This week I am so excited to share with you my favorite snack foods. Snack foods are one of the simple pleasures in life. And let me tell you guys, there are some guilty pleasures in this list. Oh baby! Bring on the salt!
I mean…look at that! Who doesn’t love a bit of melty cheese?! I would like to formally offer my condolences to those who are lactose intolerant, because y’all are missing out! If you’ve seen my recipe for this Turkey & Brie Surprise Sandwich then you know I’ve just recently discovered Brie within the last year. But it will be a love affair that will span a lifetime, I just know it. I love to snack on brie as is or with crackers or slices of baguette. It’s also delicious paired with granny smith apples. Or, on this fantastic sammich.
2.) Kettle Brand Jalapeno Chips
Spicy, salty, a hint of sweetness. These are without a doubt my favorite potato chips. They are good with sandwiches as a side, crumbled on top of chili, or just something to satisfy that rumble in your belly. Be careful though! It’s hard to stop at just a handful!
4.) Celery with Blue Cheese Dressing
I know, celery isn’t as healthy for you when you pair it with cheese laden dressing. But it’s so good I don’t even care! I loathe celery. Celery and I are not friends on any other circumstance. I put it in recipes because I know it is a healthy vegetable and it will be good for my little one (and me, of course). But in all honesty I could do without celery and live a happy life. But when you pair celery with this blue cheese dressing, it is divine! And it can’t be any other dressing or any other version of blue cheese dressing, it has to be THIS exact one. Superb!
5.) Cheez-It Party Mix
Oh man, this one takes me back. When I was in high school I played volleyball. Every volleyball tournament I would bring a giant box of this stuff and share it with my team-mates. I love the mix of cheez-its and pretzels and those puffy little white balls that melt in your mouth (no idea what they are). I think my mom still keeps a box around at home for when I come visit. Delicious!
