My kids are starving when they get home from school. (or at least they think they are). Unless of course they want to go straight out to play, then they aren't hungry until they bring their friends over and everyone is hungry. We must have a sign on our front door that says, "Come on over if you are hungry kids!"
My kids are pretty easy to please when after school hunger strikes, and will eat whatever is easiest and obvious. I thought of making these kabob's and making a little center piece on the table out of them. I used a piece of string cheese and chopped it, then olives alternating. I also used a little colby-jack cheese for some variety. Then I kept it in the fridge till school was over (thus the frostiness on my jar). As soon as they walked in from school, they picked one up and ate it so quickly they were wondering why I didn't have more.
Olive's are a great source of Vitamin E. Their dark color means they are full of phytonutrients. The good, healthy fat in olives helps to protect cells from damage and improve heart health. You can't go wrong. And just eating a couple on a stick like this is probably the perfect amount for small stomachs.
When flip-flopper was done, she came to find me to say, "Mom! Where are more of those corn dog thingy's?" I was confused for a minute when I realized she meant 'kabob's'. So now we've named them, Olive Kabob's
