Other days, we walk in late. They both start rummaging through the pantry for snacks while I'm trying to get lunch ready. James is hungry and tired and clings to me like a baby monkey, so I'm trying to do everything with one hand. Lunch is a random assortment of things I pull out of the fridge and pantry. We're all usually back in the kitchen hungry a few hours later.
Not this week, though. This week I'm on top of things. Nothing groundbreaking, but we're trying a few things we haven't had in a while to avoid the boredom of getting into a rut, and I'm armed with plenty of fresh fruit to round it out.
Whole wheat sandwich thins
Heat under the broiler until cheese is melted and edges are crispy.
Recipe from 100 Days of Real Food (which has great lunch ideas).
Peanut Butter with Cinnamon Apples and Pretzels
This was after a birthday party, so no one was very hungry because they'd filled up on treats and snacks.
We can't go a week without this one - Grilled Cheese.
On James' plate, you can see that I offered him some of my greek yogurt with spinach and artichokes. He was not impressed.
