My son is crazy about olives to I added extra ones for him. Day care menu: Cod nuggets, blueberry muffins, pineapple, green beans with fruit and ice cream for snacks.
My son has been begging for pancakes so I finally got my act together and sent one with him. Day care menu: Ham and beans, mandarin oranges, peas with fruit and yogurt as snacks.
My husband packed this lunch for our son since I was out of town for BlogHer Food. He did a great job! I didn’t even ask him to take a picture but he did. I don’t talk too much about my husband, but I’m absolutely crazy about the guy. Thankfully it’s mutual. I’m really, really lucky to have him. Being a child of divorce, I work hard to make sure that my husband knows how much I appreciate him. I saw how my parents screwed up and I’m not doing that! Day care menu: Tuna with pasta, pineapple, green beans with fruit and mini blueberry muffins as snacks.
I made these little pita pizzas for dinner. They actually were a lot more filling than they look.
I buy bread from a local gluten free bakery. It’s insanely expensive so it’s really something I don’t do very often. It’s really good though. The quinoa salad was from Whole Foods. I’m not a big yogurt person, but I’ve realized that I like it as a topping over fruit.
File under “ingredients matter.” I packed a hot dog, but it’s not just a regular frank. It’s one of the fancy kinds (no nitrites, free range beef, no fillers, gluten free) and also definitely a splurge at the store. But worth it every now and then.
