Sententiae viri ex temporibus duobus

A Summertime Snack

When I was young, my sister and I would occasionally make “EZ Cheesy Pretzels” - it was a recipie she had gotten in 1st grade (“following directions”) - on an idle summer afternoon.

Troublingly though, they are a righteous mess to clean up. So…get adult supervision if needed.

Bon Appetit!
