Corn Cheese Bread Cups

Standard

As I have started preparing #afterschoolsnacks, wonder what to prepare today for snacks. Got to see a bread packet and some leftover corn kernels and cheese cubes in the refrigerator. Thought of preparing Bread cups and later it resulted in a bread bowl too. #afterschoolsnacks

When I started preparing this dish, felt little confusion whether it would work out, think may be of having migraine. But continued the process and the outcome was fantastic which made me very happy. These corn cheese bread cups disappeared in moments, my son liked it to the core. Feeding him is being a great challenge for me, what do a mother needs than this. #backtohomesnacks
