This time of year our already busy schedule gets to a crazy level. I’m working, taking care of my babies, shopping for the holidays, wrapping gifts, decorating, going to parties, looking for parking at the mall– it’s exhausting! Because of all of this I’m extra diligent about making sure I’m staying hydrated and eating nutritious snacks.

 

Cheese is (as you all know) my favorite food to serve, to eat, and to be near! So when The Laughing Cow ®  reached out and asked how I like to eat my cheese, easy snacks was THE answer. The Laughing Cow is a delicious, creamy cheese with endless snack possibilities you guys. Here are some of my favorite ways to get my snack on!

No tea party necessary to enjoy these refreshing and elegant sandwiches.
