Wednesday’s lunch featured a potent combination: salami, pub cheese, and sour little cornichons on pretzel bread. This sandwich was actually inspired by a snack Lily made for herself over the weekend: sliced pretzel bread with pub cheese and little cornichons.

For lunch on Thursday, I made little whole wheat tortilla pockets filled with sliced bananas, peanut butter and Nutella. Yum, yum, super yum. The cute little bento bear is filled with dried fruit.

Last night—the dreaded Thursday night—I was in survival mode. That meant kale pancakes for dinner with a side of ham and applesauce. I have this dinner philosophy: if you add pureed kale to pancake batter it equals a balanced meal/acceptable dinner (this rule definitely applies on Thursdays). Aren’t kale pancakes pretty? So, today, the kiddos get little kale pancakes sandwiches filled with Nutella. Phew! Another week accomplished.
