My New Job...Volleyball Snack Mom

I know it is strange but I like being the 
"snack mom".

I love the challenge of making a seemingly boring task just a little more fun.

My daughter's High School Volleyball team, played their toughest opponent on Friday
 and I wanted to fill them up with a special snack before the big game...

They each got a "Go Bears" to-go bag, 
to eat in the car during the 45 minute drive.
I enclosed easy, healthy food-
apples, peanut butter, pretzels...

and pasta salad
(in Maroon and Gold school colors, of course!) 

SERVED in take out boxes...

 To make enough for 14 takeout boxes I combined
Two 16 oz boxes of cooked rotini pasta 
(spiral shaped to give the ball a little more SPIN)
grape tomatoes halved
1 red, 1 yellow and 1 orange diced bell pepper
one 12 oz block of mozzarella cheese diced
and my secret pasta salad weapon...

I whisked the entire bottle of Brianna's Vinaigrette with 1/2 cup mayonnaise

They played their hearts out and lost a very close match.
 The "Celebration Cookies" I made for the trip home,
quickly turned into "You played a Great Game" Cookies.

If you want to be a snack mom hero,
you have got to make these EASY Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.
They turn out perfectly for me every time...

I mean really, anything with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups makes people happy, right?
