I really wanted to put a survey together for yesterday, but I totally underestimated my amount of free time now that the school year is underway. I hope you had fun with the surveys — thanks again for participating!
I’m not sure I said it before, but packing lunch is a pain. Even though getting everything assembled is a hassle, the dishes are the worst.
Turkey sandwich fixings: bagel, turkey, tomato (CSA), goat cheese, mayo; peaches (farmer’s market); corn (CSA)
The new day care is sending home my son’s leftovers, which is helpful. I’ll tell you what he didn’t touch: the tomato, the cheese, the mayo, and some of the corn. Day care menu: Meatballs in spaghetti sauce, cavatappi pasta, baby carrots with Italian dip.
Turkey, goat cheese; peaches (farmer’s market); pita; spiced rice; crunchy green beans
He didn’t eat the rice or the cheese. My kid is not into rice, but I’ll tell you want he really doesn’t like these days: quinoa. Day care menu: Beef taco with cheese and lettuce, “winter blend,” pineapple chunks, flour tortilla.
Mac and cheese; bacon; green pepper (CSA) with dressing for dipping; applesauce; sliced apricot (farmer’s market)
When I made this lunch, I finally had the menu so I tried to match some of the foods. I made my own dairy free “cheese’ sauce (and it’s rice elbow pasta). I’ll share the recipe once I perfect it on my soon-to-be-announced random recipe site. I’m getting better at cooking. Weirdly, my son didn’t eat the apricot. But I wasn’t surprised when he didn’t eat all of the pasta. It was a big helping. Day care menu: Mac and cheese with chicken, tomato wedges with ranch dip, applesauce and bread.
