There were tons of grapes at the farmers market this weekend, so I stocked up on green and gorgeous dark purple varieties. They will be making an appearance in more lunches this week. The little container has plain greek yogurt with homemade strawberry applesauce. The strawberries I got this week were super sweet and ripe; I knew they wouldn’t last long. Sometimes really good fruit is ephemeral that way. So, I made an easy sauce: strawberries, cut up apple chunks (don’t bother to peel if organic or unwaxed), the juice of an orange and a little sugar. I let this simmer while giving the kids a bath last night. By the time they were finished, so was the sauce. I gave it a little blend with an immersion blender and let it cool while we read bedtime stories. Sunday night is for multi-tasking. This lunch also has a cheddar cheese biscuit left over from dinner, slices of this yummy baby swiss cheese from Trader Joe’s and real, honest to goodness baby carrots (farmers market).
