Capsicum Cheese Toast

I have mentioned many times here that I love bread esp. toasts and sandwiches which tops the list as my favorites. Luckily the kids share the same enthusiasm and I make something special for us once in a while.

A couple of weeks back ,on a weekend, the kids did not want to have the regular lunch. So I made this toast and I joined the kids.At first Lil Dude did not like the white color on the toast but was intrigued by the colorful capsicum.Later , after a little encouragement from Lil Angel,he dived into it!

This dish makes for a quick breakfast / snack or even for lunch as in our case.

This is my entry for Blogging Marathon #50, Week 1, Day 1, with the theme Colorful dishes for kids which also happens to be the theme Varada of Varada's Kitchen is hosting as a part of Srivalli's Kids Delight series.



Toasted bread slices- 6
Cheese spread-4 tablspoons
Colored bell pepper , finely chopped -1/4 cup / as needed
Dried oregano-1/4 teaspoon
Chili flakes- 1/4 teaspoon

Take the cheese spread in a bowl and put in the capsicum,oregano, chili flakes and mix. Spread this over a toast and serve immediately...



Colorful and tasty toast ready in minutes!


Note:
  • Adjust the quantity of the ingredients to suit your taste
  • I have not added salt as the cheese spread already has salt.
  • This toast tastes best when served immediately. If the spread rests on the toast for too long, it gets soggy.

Papaya Carrot and Apple Juice

Once, it so happened that there were just a few pieces of a couple of fruits and veggies in the fridge. I was bored and so were the kids!! Lil Angel asked for something 'yummy' to drink as it was so hot outside and we were dying to drink something cool.Then an idea sprang up  that why not make a beverage out of the leftovers. And thus was born this tasty, healthy and colorful drink!

The ingredients that went into this beverage is healthy and I can guarantee that kids can never say No to it.I know coz my kids cleaned up their glasses.So here is another beverage into which we can sneak into all the healthy stuff and they will never know!!

This is my entry for Blogging Marathon #50, Week 1, Day 1, with the theme Colorful dishes for kids which also happens to be the theme Varada of Varada's Kitchen is hosting as a part of Srivalli's Kids Delight series.




I used:

Papaya -1/2 a ripe one
Carrot-1,small
Apple-1 small
Honey to taste
Chilled water as needed

  1. Peel and cut the papaya and apple,grate the carrot .
  2. Blend these with honey.
  3. Once it is pureed, add water to get the desired consistency.
  4. Serve chilled...



Note:
  • Adjust the quantity of the ingredients to suit your taste.
  • Sugar can be used instead of honey.But I prefer honey.
  • I did not strain the juice. I served it as such.
