The Contents – apple bites, kiwi, mandarin orange slices, asparagus spears, turkey sandwich on oat and honey bread, oatmeal-raisin cookies
The Details – So it turns out that 2 of my kids like asparagus. Plain, steamed asparagus. And only the ends – the tips grossed them out, texture-wise. I thought they made a nice addition to her lunchbox, eh?
We also made oatmeal-raisin cookies yesterday. They are so yummy. We used this recipe, but substituted the chocolate chips with raisins, only because I was out of chocolate chips. With the chocolate chips, they are absolutely to-die-for. We also added 1 tsp of cinnamon.
The Verdict – I have noticed that my daughter never eats her sandwiches anymore. She eats all her fruits and veggies, plus whatever sweet I send. Grrr…I guess its time to get creative again. My boys, however, inhaled every last crumb in their boxes!
