I’m wondering how the post-Halloween school day is going and how many kids are suffering from a candy hangover. I feel for the teachers. Yesterday I was organized enough to get the kiddos’ lunches packed before trick or treating time. It’s one of those typical Friday lunches comprised of random things left in the fridge and in the fruit bowl at the end of the week. I made some pumpkin muffins on Wednesday night, so the kids could eat them on Halloween morning. For lunch, I sliced the muffins in half and spread on a little pumpkin cream cheese, for double the pumpkin. I bought string cheese to make the mummy pizzas, so I threw one of those in each lunchbox. I also included a small container of plain yogurt with homemade apricot jam (look at that color!). The fruits and veggies today are carrot slices, celery sticks, persimmon slices and some dried apple rings. I went with yummy smokey almonds for the treat today.
