Taste the Rainbow! (TGIF)

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!).

Blessings!

Raisin’ the Roof!

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.

Yum-o.

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!
