Okay , heres the scenario : Grade 1 has a thing going called Letter Treats to share and provide for each student , This week the student who picked the letter Aa treat has gone by in which it was " Adventurous Animal Cookies, Awesome Apple Juice , Appealing Apples with cinnamon and sugar and Amazing Apple Muffins for their Animal picnic . Next is the Doctors Kid and I hope its not going to be a BBQ which costs a fortune to outdo the Animal Picnic LOL. Anyway we have the letter "N" and am looking for ideas of treats and food , So far I have only come up with Nuts and Bolts and Nachos . We have to be cautious about allergys too . Please share your ideas .Thankx

Noodle muffins
Noodles with cinnamon and sugar

Seriously though, I'd suggest looking at the index at the back of recipe books under 'N'... I only have a small one, and all that's listed is New England Chowder, Noodles, and Nuts.

Blue_Nose @ Tue Sep 05, 2006 8:16 pm

Crass? No - noodles was the only thing I could think of other than nachos and nuts.

Nanaimo bars is a good one... try the recipe index, though, if you need more.

..A M...if you knew sushi,like I know sushi.... oh... oh...

Sorry (lack of sleep) up a batch of Nigiri Sushi...


Arctic_Menace @ Tue Sep 05, 2006 10:00 pm

Well actually, interestingly enough, Vancouver has mroe sushi/sashimi restaurants that Tokyo. No joke.

Sushi isn't all they eat over there. It's usually rice, stir fry, fish(cooked), miso soup, etc. I practically grew up on Japanese food. I used to have miso soup and/or rice with fish and maybe some stir fry. Such a good way to start off the day... :D


Arctic_Menace @ Tue Sep 05, 2006 10:03 pm

P.S. I do know sushi like you know sushi. :wink:

"Nasty Spider Cake

1 Cake mix
1 pk Green jello prepared
Black frosting
8 Licorice sticks
8 Gumdrops

Take your average cake mix. Bake it up in 2 metal bowls--1 bigger than the other. Once unmolded, cut the bigger one (the "body") in half, horizontally. CAREFULLY scoop out an adequate cavity in each half. FILL with well-whipped set green Jello, and reattach the halves. Frost black, arrange on serving platter. Use licorice sticks as legs. Use 2 BIG green gumdrops and 6 little ones as eyes. When the cake is cut into, it spurts green goop, just like a real spider when stepped on. "

This is a Halloween recipe...and maybe something boys like more than girls..cause of the spider and green goop...

"Alphabet Cookies" (you should think of a name starting with N..?)

"2 egg whites
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 ounces milk chocolate

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

In a bowl, whisk egg whites. Sift corn starch and flour. Add to bowl. Add sugar and vanilla to bowl. Fold dry ingredients in using a large wooden spoon. Then spoon into a plastic zip lock back and seal. Make a small cut in one corner of the plastic bag.

Line cookie sheet with baking paper. Squeeze plastic bag to make letters of the alphabet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on racks.

Melt chocolate in microwave then spoon into a plastic zip lock bag. Cut a whole and squeeze over each letter of the alphabet."

Or in your case the letter N. Or make them in the shape of the letter:

"Noontime Newt Nuggets

Frozen fish sticks
1 small bag of frozen french fries
1 10-ounce package frozen green beans

Cook the fish sticks, french fries, and green beans separately, following the directions on the packages. Now it's time to build your newt!

First, let's make our pond for the newt. Grab a large lettuce leaf—newts love a nice, damp habitat.

Now take your fish stick newt, add a french fry tail and green bean legs. Did you know some newts turn red when they are growing into adults? Add your ketchup and you'll have an eft (the middle stage of growth for a newt—a lot like a tadpole turning into a frog)!"

"Nilly Dillyicious Pops

20 Vanilla wafer cookies
1/2 cup Peanut butter
1 (6 ounce) bag Chocolate or white chocolate chips
Colored candy sprinkles
Popsicle sticks
Wax paper or paper plates

Spread peanut butter onto the flat side of the cookies.
Place an Popsicle stick into the peanut butter on half the cookies.
Top with another cookie so the stick is sandwiched between the two cookies.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, one minute, then in 20 second increments, stirring until smooth.
Dip Nilly Pops in the melted chips, covering completely.
Roll pops in sprinkles and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates.
Place in refrigerator to chill.

Note: If using white chocolate chips, you can tint the melted chocolate with food coloring, or leave the chocolate white and use chocolate sprinkles. Decorate with any other candies you wish, or leave some plain as we did here. Another variation is to use vanilla or chocolate frosting instead of peanut butter for the filling..
These can also be made without sticks. use one stick to be able to dip the cookies in chocolate and roll in sprinkles, then remove the stick and put on wax paper or paper plates, then chill. "

"Nutty Caramel Corn

Makes about 15 cups
Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 20 minutes

Nonstick cooking spray
12 cups popped popcorn (about 1/2 to 2/3 cup unpopped)
1-1/2 cups almonds, cashews, or peanuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dark-colored corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon sifted baking soda

Coat a roasting pan or two 17x12x2-inch baking pans with cooking spray. Remove all unpopped kernels from the 12 cups of popped corn. Place the popcorn and nuts in the pan. Keep the popcorn warm in a 300 degree F oven while you're making caramel mixture.

In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the brown sugar, the butter, and the corn syrup. Bring the mixture to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly (this takes about 12 minutes). Cook and stir the caramel mixture for 5 minutes more over medium heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat; stir in the baking soda (the mixture will foam).

Pour caramel mixture over popcorn in prepared pan; stir gently to coat.

Bake in the center of a 300 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Stir popcorn. Bake for 5 minutes more. Remove the baked caramel corn from oven. Spread onto a large piece of foil to cool. Break apart to serve. Makes about 15 cups.

Very easy recipe. My wife used Redenbacher's "Sweet and Buttery" microwave popcorn (2 bags) and switched the dark corn syrup for the light corn syrup. WOW! This is the best caramel corn I have ever had. If you love caramel corn this is the one for you! "
