We are having another heat wave here on the lovely and hot Central Coast of California. Once again, the kids have requested lots of fruit in their lunches. I think Iain would be perfectly satisfied to just eat fruit salad for three meals a day. Yesterday, I cut up some strawberries, watermelon and nectarines for Tuesday’s fruit salad. I had a few leftover strawberry and nectarine pancakes (I’m sensing a theme here) in the fridge, so I cut those up and put them in the lunch boxes. These days the kids are also enjoying lots of baby carrots and sweet red lipstick peppers from the farmers market.
For lunch today, I made one of my all time favorite snacks: Pink Lady apple slices filled with a little peanut butter and Nutella. Yum! I wrapped these little apple sandwiches in waxed paper since they can get a bit messy. Today’s fruit salad has strawberries, yellow nectarines, and white peaches.
