BM #82 Week 2 Day 1 -

These cheesy quinoa bites make a delightful snack. This is a good way to sneak in those vegetables which are a no-no for the kids.

This week it is all about bite sized appetizers which are kid friendly. 

These bites disappeared in a flash and no one commented on the quinoa in there. That was a pleasant surprise.
