Back into the Swing of Things, Lunch Style

It’s always a challenge to get back into the school routine after having an entire week off for Thanksgiving break—especially when that break includes a trip to Disneyland followed by the making and consumption of way too much food. The first few lunches of the week were typical lazy mom affairs made with minimal fuss and effort.

For today’s lunch, I put in a little more effort and made the kiddos a nice hummus (edamame hummus from Trader Joe’s) and veggie lunch with multi-colored carrots, quick boiled green beans and baby bell peppers. I also included some delicious Ritz crackers, grapes, dried apricots, and Trader Joe’s adorable little mini mint chocolate star cookies.
