Annie I make a cheese log that is rolled in nuts.
chop up a handful of prunes and a handful of apricots
soak for 1-7 days in peach schnapps !!!! You can't use this one for the kids, thats the adult version !!!! for the kids soak in tea.
drain and mix in one tub of cream cheese and grated tasty cheese.
Crush a cup or two of nuts - any combination, and form cheese into a log, rolled in the nuts.
If you then refridgerate for a day or so, it slices into lovely wee rounds.
tastes really delishish - especially the adult version !!!!
Some times when i make it I soak the fruit for 1 day, however i have soaked it in the alcohol for 7 days, and it tastes better the longer. I think the tea version should be only 1-2 days soaking thou.
i find the best nuts are cashews, but I have done mixtures too.
if your daughter is eating bread, I used to make marmite/vegemite sandwiches with pumpkin seeds, always on a heavy vogel or rye bread, way better than white !!!!
I made a mixture of cream, yoghurt and berries the other day. Froze them and ate them as they slowly thawed. I wonder if you take one out of the freezer as DD leaves for school, by lunchtime it would be thawed enough to eat, but still cold ????
