It’s always difficult to get back into the school routine after a little holiday, but we’re doing our best. The kiddos are officially turkeyed out, so I knew I couldn’t pack turkey sandwiches for lunch. Instead, I went with the old standby: peanut butter and jelly. This morning I asked Iain if that would be okay and he said, “only if you have some interesting jam.” Luckily, I had some Iain-approved homemade apricot jam. Geez, my kids are spoiled when it comes to food. I didn’t intend to include so many green things in this lunch—it was just happenstance that I had green apples, celery and Trader Joe’s Inner Peas crispy pea snacks.

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family and copious amounts of food. I had the best day ever thanks to my trusty kitchen helpers:

I was also incredibly thankful live in a place where you can go boogie boarding in December.
