Jackson went down for a nap and Keelin and I decided to celebrate "Week of the Young Child" with a little project. She and I de-papered all of her and Jackson's broken crayons, melted them in my double boiler, and put them into some star shaped candy molds that I had on hand!
Baked it with a bit of cheese on top (Tim's are the ones without cheese, per his request).
Oh, man! So delicious!
Thanks to Cat at The Verdant Life for this delicious idea! It was a hit with my family!
Her blog recipes are so yummy sounding and we can't wait to try out more in the future!
We served our nests with a spinach salad with broccoli and apples
(yes, the same one we had last night- it was requested again by the babes!) and steamed edamame.
Our plates were almost covered with GREEN, minus the cheese, apples, and pasta sauce!
