Quick, hide the vitamins

It’s prime time snack season. The biggest football game in the world is coming, and people want food they can eat on the couch.
Of course, wings, chili, pizza and dips and football-shaped cookies will be on the table. But it’s possible to sneak in some nutrition under the guise of dessert. Stir in some sweet fruit with some sweet yogurt and even guys’ guys might take a serving.
I happen to love, love, love fruit salad in any form. This one looks delicious, and a frresh, seasonal change from the melon/grape/berry fest that doesn’t work that well in the dead of winter. I love making dinner out of snacks, even when it’s just me, and my two boys (40 and 5) standing around the table, double dipping without shame.
I think I’ll make Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dressing Feb. 6, and trick (at least myself) into eating my way out of a nutritional hole.

P.S. The chicken stock/soup adventure went well. I got a late start though, and we didn’t eat until 8 p.m. It was worth it.
