The first day of school was a HUGE success! Molly loved the sushi and said that everything tasted great!
She helped make her lunch for tomorrow and was very excited to be a part of it.
A whole wheat pasta salad. The dry pasta was purchased at ALDI very inexpensively. We added some light Italian dressing, black olives, carrot matchsticks, edamame and red peppers.
Next we wrapped a pepper jack cheese stick with some thinly sliced ham, sliced it and skewered it on re-usable plastic lollipop sticks. We added a few extra black olives to that container because they are a favorite of Molly's.
We washed up some sugar snap peas as a nice crunchy side dish.
Finally, for our fruit/dessert we washed up some grapes and dried them thoroughly and added a few Annie's Homegrown Bunny Graham Friends for variety.
Add in a re-usable bottle of water (part of the Laptop Lunch Box) kept in the refrigerator all night so its nice and cold. Then a cloth napkin, loving made by my Aunt Sis.
No waste, good nutrition and a happy kid helping to do her part in making the environment a little better for her future.
