My older one starts bringing her lunch today. In an effort to keep my food priorities and efforts continual, I started preparing for today’s lunch Saturday.
Her menu today is:
Steamed multi grain rice (Brown rice, sprouted rice, millet, quinoa, barley, wheat berry) mixed with ground black sesame seeds and a little salt. This is topped with browned ground turkey simmered in a little dashi, soy and mirin. Other part of the rice topped with blanched spinach which was wrung out, chopped, and seasoned with a little ponzu and ground sesame seeds.
Her thermos has 10 ozs of chicken and veggie soup (carrots, onion, celery and spinach) with turkey and flax meatballs.
Anyway – all fit nicely into her LL Bean lunchbox.
Hope her first day goes well. I debated packing chopsticks, but given the potential of injury to others, self, or out of fear of having her pull a Claire a la Breakfast Club, I figured I’d wait to hear how her lunch went today
