Tomorrow is Friday! YESSSSSSSSSSS! Whenever Friday rolls around, no matter how good my week was, I think to myself, “Whew! We made it!”. It just feels good to reach Friday. And in that same happy spirit, I made a colorful lunch for my Bigs!
I packed a mini cinnamon raisin bagel with cranberry orange cream cheese, homemade strawberry fruit snacks, green grapes, applesauce squeezy fruit, mini pickles, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds for dessert (Sun Drops).
What a fun way to end the week (at least I think it would be!).

Happy Tuesday (I hope it is for you, anyways)! This Tuesday was a pretty happy one for me. My Bigs had a great day in school and worked on writing capital “B’s”. I went jogging with my Smalls and there was a breeze (it’s the small things). I made a delicious dinner (my dinner track record of late hasn’t been so great) and I’ll even be sharing one of the recipes soon. I also made a Cinnamon-Raisin Quick Bread (by Lisa Leake, 100 Days of Real Food). It was a happy Tuesday.
Here is my Biggy Bigs’ lunch for tomorrow:
I cut one slice of the quick bread and sandwiched it with cream cheese. I also packed one slice of ham, rolled up, and some pieces of cheese, seasoned corn, homemade fruit snacks, and some Sun Drops (colored, chocolate-covered sunflower seeds). I am betting my Bigs will love this lunch. I love the colors of it. So cheerful!
The bread was a breeze to make – it’s not named “quick” bread for nothing!
I love 100 Days of Real Food recipes. They are clean and mostly easy. A win-win!
The house smelled heavenly while this little loaf was baking. Cinnamon and raisins go so well together in taste AND in smell.
If you’ve got an hour, some whole wheat flour, honey, cinnamon and raisins (and a few other basic ingredients), TRY THIS.
There is no white sugar in it – only honey. It’s made with whole wheat. It’s hearty. It’s good hot, cold, or toasted. What’s not to love?
Here’s the recipe:
Have a blessed Wednesday!
