We're having some work done on the house—oh the joys of owning an older home!—and the guys decided to stay on schedule by working over the weekend. Instead of sticking around through the hammering and paint scraping, we headed out of town for the day. And brought lunch along with us!
The lunch shown here was Miss L's lunch and it's my favorite sort of packed lunch for little ones. It's easy to pack, diverse in nutrients, and it has enough food to keep them going until afternoon snack time. Here's what's inside:
- Mini Apple Snickerdoodle Muffins
- Sliced fresh zucchini
- Dried banana slices
- Cheese stick
The lunch is packed in our Lunchbots Trio and I made the banana slices in our dehydrator. Speaking of which, I sort of can't believe that I own a dehydrator, but it brings me so much joy. (Plus, it was about $35 and I've already gotten my money's worth!) These were bananas that were too ripe to eat fresh—and there weren't enough to make banana bread—and turning them into chewy chips was an awesome way to make sure they didn't go to waste.
