Ants on a Log

     We are eating ants on a log today. Eden says, "No, you don't eat bugs." I said they weren't real bugs, but she was still skeptical. In the end, she enjoyed her lunch and we got a little school time in too.
     This post is brought to you by the number 4. There are 4 carrots, 4 apples, and 4 ants on 4 logs in this lunch. We counted them all. We added the carrots and the apples together.
Don't be put off if you have a nut allergy. Just substitute peanut butter for one that fits in with your diet.
Ants on a log recipes can be as simple or as complex as you like:
celery, peanut butter, and raisins or craisins (for red ants on a log)
celery, cream cheese, cinnamon, and craisins or dried blueberries or tiny chocolate chips or granola
celery, nutella, tiny marshmallows or nuts (much less healthy!)

Most of these options are kid-friendly, but you can adapt the traditional food to a more adult friendly fare too:
celery, hummus, roasted peppers
celery, cream cheese, paprika, roasted peppers and/or pine nuts
celery stuffed with chicken salad
