Memory Lane Friday - A Favorite Snack

Memory Lane Friday is a weekly blog carnival, where you blog about one of your memories and link up.  This week has no theme.  All are welcome!

Something happens in November and December and all I can think about is food.  I'm usually coming off a marathon, and with the holidays approaching, I start cooking all sorts of meals.  You may have noticed I'm suddenly posting more recipes than usual.  I can't seem to help myself.

When I was in high school, my Dad created this snack that we all went crazy over.
It was very simple.
Take Triscuits.  Top with cheese (slices of American or in this case, Velveeta).  Add half of a green olive.  Microwave for 20-30 seconds to make the cheese melty.
It seems so basic, but they are delicious.
Pierce is really crazy for them too.

If you'd like to link up, do so here (and visit others' blogs who link up if you have time!):

Next week's topic is "A Favorite Holiday Food".  See what I mean about being obsessed with food?  LOL!

Triscuits are one of my favorites! Although I'm not found of olives, I'll try them with the melted cheese!...:)JP

It's snacks like these that are always so tasty! That's fun that your dad came up with it.

Now I know what I'm going to do with the remainder of the Triscuit box in the pantry. ;)

Sounds yummy!! I don't really like olives either but Mad and hubby do so they might like it like you make it. I'd prob just eat them with the melted cheese like JP. :)

If I made these I would not be able to just eat one...Sounds really good.
My dad would take saltine cracers put cheese on it and then drizzle with yellow mustard.. My kids used to have a cracker party with him.. They ate the whole sleeve of crackers..
Memories are a gift~ always in our minds to bring out and share.

My mom used to make these, except she'd use green peppers instead of olives. Yours look way better: Going to have to give those a shot with my own kids. Cool stuff!
