A rut or a good habit?

Each year, my daughter's father and stepmother and I split the planning and cooking duties for her birthday party. She's coming up on the big 6-year festivities soon, and this year my job is everything-but-the-cake. Since she's plenty old enough to have her own opinions about this sort of thing, Cheetos top the everything-but list. However, the rest of it is up to me.

I started making the menu tonight and was alarmed to discover that everything I first thought of could be described as my appetizer cheat sheet:
Cheese Krispies [basically, cheese, butter, flour, Rice Krispies. Mmmm.]
Fresh veggies and sour cream dip
Chex Mix
Bean dip and chips

Now, there's certainly nothing WRONG with any of these. They're all good for a party or a late-night junk-food fest. But is it bad that I could make them all in my sleep? I feel like I really need to branch out. More thought to come on this topic, but I can guarantee you that no matter what, the Cheese Krispies will stay on the list.

If you want a sweet but easy recipe... let me know. I've got a good "Lutheran" recipe for Club Cracker Bars. Sounds weird, but they are very yummy and rich and oh sooooo easy to make.

Here's what happened in the end: 6yo changed her mind and wanted a Strawberry Shortcake cake. Like, a Wilton cake. So I was pressed into service on that front. And relieved of many snack duties. Cake update to come.

Well, I've enjoyed my visit to this post, but I'm not sure it's what I was looking for. I was actually searching for articles on kids recipes - these search engines are weird! Just thought I'd say hello while I'm here :0)

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
