Warm weather food for kids

Have you ever had frozen grapes, the seedless ones are best. They are fantastic and they are cheap, They are not only great for kids but adults find them great as well.

Mmm...coffee says: Yep...frozen grapes, watermelon - even strawberries! It makes them last longer because if I didn't freeze the strawberries, my daughter would eat the whole punnet at once! Frozen, a few is all she takes :) Reply

woosif says: also they are nice in frozen ice cubes in soda and lemonade for kids so when the ice obviously melts they have a grape to eat - my kids love finding a piece of fruit in their water when the ice melts... piece of strawberry too in sparkling white wine is nice! if you have a quick freezing freezer or it can go mushy Reply

chickclaire says: What do you do to get the grape inside the ice maker? As far as I know you are refering to the long oblong trays that fill up with water from the tap. I have never tried freezing the cup of vino because I can drink it over the bar. Reply

Geez! Easter was WHEN? Crikey! How time flies! That was when I was in here last.
Anyway, here's a real Fun (depending how you take it) and simple recipe for kids to disgust their mates with. I call it SHIT ON TOAST. Sorry! I told you it depends how you take it! First, a little story of its origin.
Believe it or not, I was disgustingly insulted by my own mother when, in front of myself, she "jokingly" told one of her visiting mates, making fun of my appetite, that I would, "eat shit if it was sugared." Naturally, I hit the roof and called her a disgusting old bag.
One day, while doing the dishes, a plate slipped and I splashed myself, and without thinking yelled, "Shit on toast!" To which my mum had the cheek to say to me, "don't be so disgusting!" At which I fired back a reminder of how disgusting she was about me, and I still got no apology, and I kept using that term.
Another day, also while doing the dishes, I was thinking about what I said and tried to think of what such a recipe would be, and then it hit me.
For the benefit of the kids, we'll call it something else, aye? How about Crap on Toast? Geez! It sounds worse! Okay! I'll leave it to you, but you may think the original is more "fun." Its very simple and probably makes MARMITE taste better than it does. Oh, What a Give away!
The recipe is simple! Maybe a little messy as well.
Make the "Shit" by mixing 50/50 Marmite and CRUNCHY Peanut Butter, then spread it on Buttered Toast.
I can't use Marmite, because there is NO Marmite, thanks to the Earthquake damage in Christchurch. The Sanitarium Factory where it is made is MUNTED! Besides, I'm a. . . VEGEMITE lover. And, NO! I won't use Vegemite for it. And I am very sure other Vegemite lovers know why. Because Marmite is. . . spread on Toast.
Ha! Sorry!

Captain Slog says: Supplimentary,
I can imagine some of you may read this and be rather offended. For that, I am very sorry. For those out there who have also found silly recipes (HALLOWEEN Recipes) with all kinds of "disgusting" names to them, this is just ONE of them, only perhaps a little. . . Ooh, err!
It is meant to be fun, but a little shocking as well. As shocking to me as the insult fired at me, but in this case, at least this is edible and a little cheeky.
NO MORE crappy ones like this anymore! I PROMISE!! This was a ONE OFF! Reply
