(My head is about to spin off. My 4.5 and 7 year old boys are teaching my almost 9 year old daughter to play Star Wars. Do you think they could take one of those light sabers and lop my ears off? I had no idea so much screeching was involved.)
My husband thinks I’m crazy. He went into work late today and observed that I spent 40 minutes making lunch. Did he not notice that I made three lunches (which involved turning on the oven), three multi-course breakfasts, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, hand washed all of last night’s dinner pans since he no one else washed them and answered a few texts and emails? Seriously. Men and women really shouldn’t comment on each other’s efficiency. I’m pretty certain he could make lunches faster, but his ability to multi-task? Not so high.
Anyhow, today’s lunch (which involved turning on the oven):
The Contents – pears, nectarines, strawberries, snap peas, English Muffin pizzas and Chex Mix.
The Details – I had visions of trying out some version of a pizza muffin, but my plate is overflowing this week and “new recipes” aren’t making the priority list. So instead, my kids got English Muffin pizzas. Each got 1 1/2 circles, cut in half and stacked. Not sure how the grease factor went, but no one complained. Took longer to preheat the oven than anything 🙂
The Verdict – Lunchboxes licked clean. Always a good sign.
