What’s not to love about spinach tortellini? It takes three minutes to cook and it’s an easy way to get kids to eat their spinach. Today’s main lunch item is a little spinach tortellini left over from last night’s dinner. If I cook two packages of Trader Joe’s tortellini, I always have just enough left over for two kid portions. For lunch, I tossed it with olive oil and some peas and parmesan. On the side, we have carrots, pretzels, grapes, and some of that weird fruit leather stuff. I got these Archer Farms fruit strips at Target when I was shopping with my daughter who likes to grab things like this off the shelf. They allegedly have some nutritional value, but like many of these “fruit” products, they are not nearly as good as nature’s perfectly packaged kid food: the apple. But, hey, it’s a Friday, and: we’re out of apples.
