The pasta is a mix of whole grain rotini along with tri-colored fusili. One serving of that was cooked and drained. I threw a handful of broccoli florets into a pan and added the pasta with 1/2 cup cooked white beans (great northern). Turned the heat on high just to get it going. Splashed in […]
It was on my list to create a veg burger recipe that was nut-free. No problem. No brainer really…I simply omitted them. Genius. I did tinker with the rest of the recipe for yet another version. The school is serving turkey spinach burgers today, so that gave me the idea of adding spinach to our […]
This week I’m being ambitious, preparing a different meal every day that is similar to what is being served at school. Not sure how long this will last. I’d much rather just have a couple things that we rotate through the week. We’ll see how it goes. 🙂
I totally forgot to take a photo of today’s lunch, so this is an old one. Today’s version included whole grain rotini, red and yellow grape tomatoes, tofu, olives, and cucumbers.
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!
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 […]
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 3 year old chef has been on a roll with soup lately. He likes to create his own recipes. This latest one was basically every veg he laid eyes on…plus an apple for good measure. Very tasty! He LOVES his soups and usually has it with a slice of grain bread or a piece […]
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.
