Where in the world did fall go? It was in the 80's for weeks in September and October. Then we had about a week or two of some nice 60-70 degree days. Now its in the 30's and they are threatening snow! I'm not a happy camper. I love the fall and I feel like we got ripped off because it was so brief. Plus, everyone in my house has some sort of cold so we are going through tissues at a rapid pace. Hopefully we will have a nice long spring this year. These extreme temperature changes are NOT fun. No matter what, there is still school, which means that there is still lunch. So, without further ado, here's tomorrow's lunch.
Our vegetable side is mini dill pickles. Molly just loves these crunchy, salty and vinegary goodies. They are a great accompaniment to a ham sandwich. My grandmother always had a big array of pickles and olives on her relish trays that were always set out with sandwiches. We think that her traditions are awesome so we keep them going, even in a packed lunch.
Our fruit side is a small apple cut into slices. We've added a little dessert element to today's fruit with some Tastefully Simple Creamy Caramel Sauce on the side as a dip. We all really like this sauce. It tastes great, even just on a spoon.
Finally we are serving a dairy side since we've hit dessert in our fruit side. We have some Dannon Light and Fit Strawberry Yogurt as our dairy side. Its a nice creamy sweet flavor to balance out the whole meal.
