Well, the kids are back to school which means my house gets a little quieter. (Only a little – the twins are still home with me. :) ) It also means that I’m back to packing lunches, so I thought I’d start a new series called: “What’s For Lunch? Wednesdays” Every Wednesday, I’ll share what the kids (and dad) had in their lunchboxes. I find it’s hard to always come up with a fun and healthy lunch for the family, so it’s always good to have a few menus to refer back to.
So, here is what lunch looked like for week one:
(I really should invest in a better camera, so I could put some better pictures up here. It looks a lot tastier in person!)
quinoa pizza bites (recipe found here - I omitted the pepperoni) *
pizza sauce for dipping (made 12 jars of this from farmer’s market tomatoes! – recipe found in “Simply in Season”)
melon and grapes
blackberry apple muffin
* I doubled this recipe and froze half so I have enough for another lunch in the future. It’s always nice to have supplies ready in the freezer for those busy mornings!
What are your favorite healthy lunchtime menus?
