The kiddos have been coming home from school pretty hungry for the last two days. They must be working up some serious appetites as they get back into the swing of the school routine. I decided to give them some protein power in today’s lunch: a hard-boiled egg with salt and pepper and two extra delicious kinds of cheese (Dubliner and smoked gouda). Yesterday, I also made a batch of mini zucchini banana muffins to use up some of that summer squash. For fruits and veggies, I threw in some carrot sticks, jicama sticks, grapes and a dried apricot. I just love this pretty, colorful lunch.
