Only Two Lunches This Week

Here it comes!  The week of Thanksgiving.  All of the preparations and traditions are being crossed off of the to-do lists and the anticipation of one of the best meals of the year is filling the air.  I LOVE this time of the year.  It almost seems like there is excitement running through everyone's veins from now until after the new year.

Molly has two full days and one half day of school this week.  This means only two lunches.  I'm kind of torn about how I feel about this.  Yes, a break is nice, but I have so much fun making the lunches that I think I'll miss it.  We may have to do some fun Thanksgiving left over lunches during the break.
Our main entrée is Trader Joe's Mini Cheese Ravioli pasta salad with light Italian dressing.  These are a dry pasta that are just as easy to cook up as mac and cheese, but much tastier.  

Our vegetable side is a butter lettuce salad with Trader Joe's Balsamic Vinaigrette on the side.  Molly has been on a salad kick lately so we are happy to oblige her request for more salad.

Our fruit side is a Honey Crisp apple cut into slices.  This is our go-to fruit.  It holds up for a long time and is alway sweet and crunchy.  Plus, you know what they say...And apple a day....

Our dairy side is Dannon Light and Fit vanilla yogurt.  We wanted to give Molly a little calcium and protein boost since her main entrée isn't protein heavy.

Finally we put in a few Frooties candies for dessert.  These are fruit flavor Tootsie Rolls and the kid just love them.
