Everyone is up and at it today on a Saturday morning. Cheer camp for the girls today and Kass is busy making lunches for Natalie and herself. We are rolling through the last few weeks of summer and glimpses of what is to come are everywhere. It’s an exciting time even though a bit of heartbreak as schedules are peaking through and getting ready to demand our full attention!
The next few weeks are going to be very intentional as we look forward to the school year—particularly in the lunch department. I will admit, I have not done the best job with lunches this summer. I’m not sure why it’s been a struggle, but the majority of what we have eaten has been sandwiches and brunch type foods. Three meals in a day can be challenging with different schedules and overlapping commitments—and then throw in a couple of nights of work in there–well, I can get really lazy.
I read a very cute blog Mix and Match Mama and much of what she does is highlight recipes she uses for her family. Her “lunches” were intriguing to me and so we started last night trying out some recipes and adding to our school lunch rotation. I am excited to add these my older girls take their own lunches almost everyday.
The first recipe I tried was the Bacon Caesar Pasta Salad. . It was a hit with everyone but Landon. So guess what? It’s a keeper!!
She says it just gets better as it sits in the fridge—just keep the bacon separate and add when you’re ready to eat.
Stay tuned for more recipes as we close out the next few weeks and check out this sweet blog!
