littlefoodie dino munchies
its all things dino week here at casa de lil'foodie. reading books about dinos, digging up "fossils", making dino crafts and cookies and even a trip to the l.a. natural history museum to spy on the giant dinos.
yesterday seemed like such a nice fall day with the cooler weather and warm sweaters...sort of. it was so right to make some cookies. we wanted to make something the dinos would eat...hence the dino munchies. what they really are are banana/granola cookies. oh my, were they good and super healthful. unfortunatley, learning about dinos is rough work cause the cookies are almost gone. with a few to spare i will snap some photos to show there yummy munchiness.
