Today’s School Lunch

This was only the fourth day of school, so we’re having fun playing around with different school lunches. This one included mujadara, tomato bread sticks, and carrots. (Mujadara is basic rice, lentils, caramelized onions, and spices like cinnamon.) Cost of the entire lunch: $0.65 Updated recipes tomorrow!  

Breakfast Cookies

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 […]

Veg Pizza

This isn’t the prettiest picture in the world…at all…but it was so tasty I couldn’t even believe it. I was inspired by a recent veg pizza lunch with a friend and also by Dizzle’s purchase of a yummy red wine that was screaming for pizza. The veg, all but the potato, could be thrown on […]
