Since we gave up fast food for Lent, we didn't get a pizza this past weekend and also didn't make one ourselves. So, that means no typical cold pizza Monday. Instead, we decided to do an all request lunch. Molly had some bizarre ideas but we tamed them down a little bit.
Our vegetable side is cucumbers. Molly really likes the juicy and crunchy cucumbers in her lunch and requests them regularly.
Our fruit side is a banana. We haven't given Molly a banana yet this year because of the browning factor. What kid wants to eat a mushy, brown banana? But, we had seen several other lunch boxes that had incorporated the banana with the peel on so that they don't brown. We'll let you know how it turns out.
Finally, Molly requested some special pretzels for the last component of her lunch. These little gems are filled with peanut butter and are a great sweet/savory blend of flavors.
