                                       FRITTATA

Ingredients:  8 eggs, 1/2 c. plain yogurt, 1/3 c. lowfat shredded cheese, 5 c. broccoli florets(fresh or frozen), 
2 c. baby spinach leaves(fresh or frozen), 2 tbls. fresh basil.

Directions:  preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a large backing dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Wisk together eggs, yogurt and cheese in a bowl.  Steam broccoli so that it is cooked but still crunchy.  Line the bottom of the dish with steamed broccoli.  Layer the spinach leaves and the chopped basil on top.  Pour over the egg mixture.  Bake for 40 minutes or until the eggs are set and brown on top.  


                                   Baked Apples

Ingredients


 4 large good baking apples, such as Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, or Jonagold
 1/4 cup brown sugar
 1 teaspoon cinnamon
 1/4 cup chopped pecans
 1/4 cup currants or chopped raisins
 1 Tbsp butter
 3/4 cup boiling water

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Wash apples. Remove cores to 1/2 inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to cut out first the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about 3/4-inch to an inch wide.

2 In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture. Top with a dot of butter (1/4 of the Tbps). 

3 Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but not mushy. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.

Try this twist on a treasure hunt.  Hide plastic fruits and vegetables outside (example:apples, oranges, bananas, carrots, broccoli and peppers).  Show the children pictures of the hidden fruits and veggies.  

Using a plastic sand bucket to gather the treasures have one child at a time run and look for the fruits and vegetables.  The child with the fastest time wins.
