The first school week of 2015 has been crazy busy, but we’re powering through to the end of it with some nice sandwiches for lunch. Today for lunch the kids had peanut butter, Nutella, and jam sandwiches with some baby carrots, salty crunchies, and Opal apple slices.
Friday’s lunch has a particularly yummy sandwich: smoked trout with dill and sweet pickle relish and a little mayo. Trader Joe’s sells little tins of smoked trout that are perfect for sandwiches and salads. I was going to make tuna sandwiches for the kiddos’ lunches, but we were out of tuna, so I grabbed the smoked trout instead. For sides, I packed some Goldfish, freeze dried edamame (a Lily favorite), celery sticks, apple slices and an apricot. I’ve been particularly indulgent with the little treat the last couple of days: a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup. I blame Santa. He brought us so many treats that we’re still working our way through all the chocolate.
