Ladybug Lunch Box - October 17


This was a short school week for us, and we were able to get out and enjoy the fall weather just a bit.  Flowers were tended to in the garden and tomato plants were re staked.  We even picked three lima beans!  For the avid gardener, I'm sure that would be a disappointing number, but since the lima beans were from last years school plant project, we're not complaining one bit!  I'm just not sure what to do with them.  It's not even enough for a mouthful!  Oh well!

Pasta salad, tomato and orange slices.  I love it when the Pink Princess requests things that are already in the fridge!

Ever have one of those super rushed mornings?  Yup.  Me, too!  A quick ham and cheese with a fall leaf cookie cutter, cottage cheese (a Pink Princess favorite), pistachios, tomato and a Del Monte fruit cup.  Healthy, filling leftovers! 

Mmmm...cinnamon swirl bread!  The Pink Princess requested it for lunch, we had been enjoying it for breakfast, lightly toasted with a dab of butter.  For this lunch snack I simply used a fish cookie cutter (because her highness requested it) and applied PB&J.  The little fish cookies were added by royal hands.  The cheese, tomato and banana were added by plain ol' mom.  This mom also swears that's not the same tomato in all three pictures!  But it sure looks like it!  Wow, too funny!

Oh, let me tell you about our little kitchen adventure!  Scones!  Can you believe I've never made them before?  We received a free recipe booklet in the mail this week from Sun•Maid.  My daughter poured over the Fruit & Sunshine recipe book (click the link to get yours for free, too!) and decided upon the Sunny Whole Wheat Currant Scones recipe.  While I was fresh out of whole week flour (the weevils got to a brand new bag!!!  Grr!  I've since switched to storing my flour in bins from Ikea, more on that some other time), I figured I would go ahead and whip up the scones anyway.  Shoot, no currants available at the store?  That's ok, we went with raisins and added some cinnamon.  Can you just smell these?!?  The Pink Princess and I had a marvelous time making a floury mess of the kitchen.  We both learned a valuable lesson, too.  Aprons are for wiping messy, flour covered hand on...not bottoms.  One could only chuckle at the palm prints on her royal behind.

Perfectly scrumptious with a hot cup of Chai Tea...which I discovered my neighbor makes wonderfully.  Oh heaven!  If we weren't already friends!
