I think I always knew that some food ingredients aren't healthy. Since the whole Cancer Thing, I'm even more mindful about what I put in my own body, and what I purchase for my family to eat. I do a lot more scratch cooking, a lot more label reading, and am just more thoughtful about the foods we eat. Granted, crackers aren't health food no matter where they come from. But if the kids are going to snack, and they do, I'd rather they were eating something that has ingredients we can pronounce, ingredients that come from my pantry.
So, the crackers! These are rosemary garlic crackers. They are pretty delicious. Here's the recipe if you're interested: www.everydaydish.tv/index.php?page=recipe&recipe=156
And here's the dough for the vegan saltine crackers I also am working on this morning. The goal is to get it paper thin, as thin as you can roll it without the dough tearing. It's kind of hard, but if you can make it work, the crackers are awesome. They taste just like saltines from the store, but better. I sprinkle garlic salt on them instead of plain salt because we are nuts about garlic around here.

And I just got a request for graham crackers from the children. They want to make duck and little man shapes. Cooking with kids is good math, yo, and life skills.
That's what I'm doing today. Got any big Tuesday plans?
