Make a Saturday!

Linking the old Time for Timer video recently, reminded me of a snack I always wanted to try, as a child. Last night, I decided to tackle "Saturdays", with my kids.

All you children of the '70's (or was it the '80's?), feel free to sing along.

Put half a banana in a pineapple slice...

...add yogurt, creamy smooth...

...pop a grape on top...

...and that's a Saturday for you! Mmmm.

Okay, now as an adult, I know it looks a little (ahem) odd. But, they ended up tasting pretty good. The best part was, as I made the first one (and yes, I sang the words), my youngest yelled out - "That's a sundae!"

For all of you who are too young, or who didn't grow up watching American television - the video below, should explain things.

It's great to be homeschooler.


  1. I am afraid that I was too OLD to know this one, but thank you for enlightening me! (I was graduated from high school by 1980.):)

  2. Phyllis - I thought about mentioning people being too old, but I thought maybe even if you weren't watching it yourself, having lived through the time, you might still have seen it - but thanks for making me feel like a young mom :)

  3. I was born in 73 and watched quite a bit of tv as a kid, but I don't remember that at all.

    I was glad that I didn't have to be the one to say it looked a bit funny or "weird" as you said!

  4. Hmmm, I'm not remembering it, but it looks like all the Schoolhouse Rock stuff, it totally reminds me of that one.

  5. Those visuals did make me giggle, but it clearly made a yummy snack.

  6. This is my first time to your blog and I am really enjoying it! You have so much to share.

    I have to say, yes, it does look a bit odd, and has me cracking up!! Love it though:-).

    We have The Schoolhouse Rock collection, have to look for this on it.
