I am deep in the throes of holiday craziness: gift wrapping, card making, card sending, baking, goodie bag making, etc. Somehow, I’ve also been managing to pack lunches and make sure the kids get their homework done every night. Last week I survived the broken fridge debacle, so this week feels mellow by comparison. And, speaking of the broken fridge, my amazing, incredibly handy and generous, mechanical genius of a neighbor fixed it the day after it went out. I was so euphoric about having my fridge back, that I immediately whipped up this yummy loaf of banana bread with chocolate chips and coconut.

I made lunch on Monday in the morning, so I had to work fast. I made a sandwich with hummus and microgreens, not really knowing if the kiddos would go for it. Surprise! They loved it. That was a super easy, healthy sandwich to make. I threw in the ever popular veggie straws and a sliced orange to complete the lunch. For today’s lunch I made a fruit salad and served it with half a sandwich (cream cheese and lingonberry jam: a hit with Lily, not with Iain) and some teriyaki beef jerky. But, I forgot to photograph it, because I’m an airhead.
