Fun Thursday

Molly has decided to buy her lunch on Friday so we are doing our Fun Day one day early.  It's kind of fun to mix things up sometimes too.  I'm thinking that we may have to implement Fun Days on different days.  Who wouldn't want a Fun Monday Treat?  Hmmmmm....
Our main entree is leftover pasta bake from dinner tonight.  We cook up a pound of pasta, add marinara sauce and some cut up chicken sausages.  Then, we put it in a 13x9 pan, sprinkle a little bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on top and bake it at 350°F for about 20 minutes.  We think it tastes even better the next day.

Our vegetable side is carrot slices.  We try to cut the veggies up in lots of different ways to keep the kids excited about getting their daily servings.

Our fruit side is strawberries that have been cut with Christmas themed mini cookie cutters.  This is something different to keep the Christmas spirit thriving. (We put the scraps in the fridge to add to yogurt or oatmeal.)

Our dairy side is vanilla yogurt.  We added some Trader Joe's Elegant Cocoa Pearls on top to add a little extra flavor and crunch.

Finally, our Fun Thursday Treat is Market Pantry Holiday Fruit Snacks.  We bought these a while ago and now Target doesn't have any left.  Guess we really do need to stock up around Halloween. ☺
