My Kids Always Approved, Am Sure Yours Will Too!! Try These Rollups!

Once again, I first off need to say, thank you to several more new joiners in the last few days to my blog. It is a simple blog, for fun, no ads, no videos, and hopefully easy to follow instructions, that's about as technical as we get at my house. Welcome!

Today I am blogging a simple idea, a blast from my past as they say. I may have mentioned this in the past or not, but when my kids were little they were brought up with a mother who was always on a diet, yup and still am to this day, at least in my mind, Right Heidi, lol. Anyhow, sweets were not in abundance and so their snacks and a lot of meals consisted of lite fare. If you asked them what they wanted to eat, most often it was a "diet plate"! A lot of the times the protein on the plate was turkey or ham rollups, which they all loved, even my picky eater.  In fact when I told them both what I was blogging next they both said "oh diet plates", lol. Simple and depending on your amounts and ingredients fairly healthy! Today I am using ham, as that is what is in my fridge.

Ingredients: All in amounts of choice

Thin sliced ham (or turkey, bologna even salami if you so desire) Your budget, your choice

Room temperature cream cheese, I use light cream cheese, plain, flavored works great too

Thin sliced red pepper, celery, dill pickle (my choices)

Tips:

Cream cheese has to be definitely room temp to spread thinly

Turkey or ham, etc. has to be cold and patted dry

Thinly spread 1/2 of the turkey or ham slice with a layer of cream cheese in amount of your choice

Place a couple thin slices of your veggie of choice on cream cheese end, roll up and stick with a toothpick

Note: a thin slice of a favorite cheese can be used in place of the cream cheese, I like the cream cheese because it acts as a glue for your veggie pieces, I find the cheese slices makes a more bulky rollup, and also more of a meal item. These are great to put out at a party, on a platter with some of each of what is inside the rollups, or a few makes a nice light snack, with a glass of wine or beer. Like I always say, of course, your kitchen, your choice.

Stay safe everyone!!
