The Calm Before the Holiday Storm

We're here, the weekend before Thanksgiving.  The last weekend before all of the holiday chaos begins.  I can't wait.  We love Thanksgiving at our house.  There is something about the warmth and love that goes into one of the most incredible meals of the year.  It helps us all remember that the simple things in life are sometimes the things that we are most thankful for.  Enjoy the calm before the holiday storm this weekend!

On to tomorrow's lunch!
Our main entrée is a Laughing Cow Light Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil wedge with whole grain crackers.  Molly really enjoys being involved in making her lunch, so now she can make her own little cracker sandwiches.  We also added a string cheese in case the spreadable cheese isn't quite enough.

Our vegetable side is a baby spinach salad served with Trader Joe's Balsamic Vinaigrette.  This was such a big hit the other day that she requested it for today.

Our fruit side is mandarin oranges.  I think that each of my kids would eat a can of these a day.  They are often requested as a snack in our house.

Finally, our Fun Friday dessert.  We still have a TON of Halloween candy left so we picked one of Molly's favorites as a sweet ending to her lunch.  Peanut M&M's and a fruit flavored Tootsie Roll because she deserves the extra treat for being so good this week.
