The End of the Easter Eggs and Other Yummy Lunches

Due to a perfect storm of maladies, work related stress and lack of time, I have fallen behind on my lunch posts. But, as usual, lunch has still been happening.

I’m not gonna lie, I ate a whole lot of egg salad last week. I think I had it for three lunches in a row. But the kiddos need more variety than I, so I had to make sure they didn’t O.D. on egg salad.

For Friday’s lunch, I made a delicious batch of overnight oats with yogurt, vanilla soy milk, bananas, blueberries and a little swirl of Nutella. This lunch also had the last of the Easter eggs. I had to admit defeat and throw away some hard-boiled eggs. They don’t last forever.

For reasons unknown to me, all the public schools in this area have late start Monday. The day starts at 9:25 instead of 8:25. It’s a total pain in all ways, but one: I actually have time to make lunch on Monday mornings. Although, morning made lunches tend to be low on the ambition scale. Sometimes you just can’t fight it: the beauty and ease of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Although, lest you call me out as a total slacker, that there white thing in the treat tray is a real, honest to goodness homemade marshmallow. Sunday was my sweet Iain’s 9th birthday and all he wanted was a single (NOT decorated) gigantic marshmallow, which we then used to make the best s’mores ever.
