A Week of Lunch Inspiration

lunch on 10 May 2017: little turkey, cheese and dill pickle sandwiches with mini bell peppers, honeydew, Goldfish and pistachios

This was a pretty good week of lunches for the kiddos: lots of variety and plenty of delicious fruit. We got some particularly delicious mangoes and a big, sweet honeydew that the kids have enjoyed throughout the week.

A Birthday Outing at Urbane Cafe

Several weeks ago, my daughter received a gift certificate to Urbane Cafe for good behavior in kindergarten. We had never been to Urbane Cafe and Lily kept asking: “When are we going to Urbane Cafe?” Since yesterday was a holiday for all of us (Veteran’s Day: thank you, Veterans) and it was my birthday, we decided to finally go on our outing to Urbane Cafe. The sandwiches were quite good and came with gorgeous, big side salads. Liliana had a turkey and cheese sandwich and Iain had a So Cal sandwich with grilled chicken, avocado, tomatillo salsa, pepper jack cheese and chipotle aioli (fancy!). That boy is one adventurous eater.

And, because the sandwiches were so large, the kiddos got to have their leftovers for lunch today. A lunch that pretty much makes itself is a great birthday present.
