What Came Home?

School Lunch Ideas

I was a little suspicious of the empty box so I asked him how was lunch and he said,

“Oh! Nick spilled my lunch box.”

“So that’s what happened. What did you eat?”

“The bread and the peppers and some of the beans.”

“Only some?”

“Well, like 5.”

“And the Mango?”

“Oh! yea! I ate all that!”

LOL he makes me smile.

As for the bread, as a field trip at school he made homemade bread dough with half white and half whole wheat flour the day before. We baked it that night and had it with dinner. I thought I’d surprise him and put it in his lunch.

I love that he loved the process of making it, baking it and then eating it. My goal is to raise kids who like to cook! :)
