Back at it

I've been very sick for over a week and I'm finally feeling mildly human again.  Molly is very happy to be packing her lunch again.  She came home hungry on two days last week (she was home sick on Tuesday and didn't have school on Friday).  Those two days were the days she bought lunch.  She was thirsty because a 1/2 pint of milk isn't nearly enough to keep thirst at bay all day long.  She was hungry because most of the things that they served weren't really to her liking.  She said that she only ate some of most of what was served.

Now, we're back to almost normal and Molly will be getting a delicious, nutritious lunch that has the correct serving sizes for a growing 7 year old girl and plenty of love from home.  Plus, we've added something new!
Our main entree is cheese pizza.  Since Mom wasn't feeling good, we got a fresh pizza from the deli of our local grocery store.  Molly's Daddy baked and served it for lunch today and Molly requested some of the leftovers for her lunch.  There is a small container of light ranch dressing for her to dip the crust in, just in case it gets too tough.

Our vegetable side is a green salad.  It is served with light Italian dressing on the side.

Our fruit side is sliced strawberries.  Molly requested these as well.

Finally, our dairy/dessert is a NEW Chobani Champions vanilla chocolate chunk.  These just came out as well as an orange vanilla flavor.  All three of our kids gave them both a resounding two thumbs up.  My cousin reminds me to watch the sugars in these so that is why they are a special treat once in a while.  (Thanks, Sarah!) ☺


  1. Hi Shannon!

    So glad that Molly likes Champions! We would love to send you and your fam a box of the new flavors. Have y'all tried the Orange Vanilla yet? It's pretty darn tasty, if we do say ourselves. Email me at emily[dot]keeney[at] and I would be happy to hook you up!
