We’re new to this school thing. We are also new to being somewhere on time before about 9 am. Luckily the little one has always been early to bed and early to rise. The arrival of school brought no angst about waking early. It did mean a set amount of time to get everything done […]
Simple salads like this are too tasty to be forgotten! The little dude spotted the shredded cabbage slaw in the produce section and asked for it randomly. “Asian” cabbage salad….yes please. It’s just shredded cabbage and carrots, colored peppers, and really whatever add-ins sound great. Top with a super simple dressing and a tasty lunch […]
The little chef has been on a roll with pizza. He’s eaten these creations for at least one meal a day this entire week. Nutritious and fun for him and easy for me. I’ll say we have a winner! He doesn’t even care that most of the toppings fall off. He just scoops them up […]
Various versions of this kind of plate have been the absolute fave for the kiddo the past week or so. The special thing about this one was the carrot ribbons. Couldn’t be easier (Simply use a peeler), but he thinks it’s a total treat. Hummus, grain bread, grapes, pickles, carrots Other fave components have been […]

The kid has a thing for hummus lately. He doesn’t usually go for wraps or sandwiches, but this day he allowed a wrap along with some fruit and veg.
Quick lunch for the 3 year old… Red pepper, celery, carrot, tofu. Stir fried briefly and sprinkled with a little soy sauce and rice vinegar at his request. 🙂 Served with whole grain rice.
Mujadara, chutney (not spicy), and peppers The little guy said, “I love this lunch.” 🙂
I love Indian food, but I’ve never really been interested in chutneys. I always imagined it would be too sweet for my tastes. I’d rather heat things up. During a trip we ducked into Whole Foods for sustenance. I had samosas and what I didn’t realize was chutney as a dipping sauce. Amazing. I was […]
This is focaccia to the rest of us, but my 3 yr old assistant sometimes has his own language. Actually he sometimes INSISTS on his own language. Anyway…something inspired him yesterday, and he decided he must have some of this tasty stuff. Your wish is my command, especially when it’s easy and he helps. I’ll […]
