found a couple winners…



We stuck to the plan and trial’d some lunch recipes for school and thank goodness we did, because we are adding to the lineup!

Both recipes are a variation on recipes highlighted from the Mix and Match Mama blog.

The first—is shrimp, avocado, green onion, shredded Parmesan and arugula. Mixed with your favorite ranch or Caesar dressing (we did Caesar). Original recipe calls for spinach, but my kids have this new found love for the peppery taste of arugula–and it was good! This will be frequently made as frequent as shrimp goes on sale.

The next even Landon couldn’t get enough of. Tortellini, turkey pepperoni, green onion, green pepper, red grape tomatoes, and Olive Garden Italian dressing to taste. You can also add cucumbers, black olives, and even some spinach leaves to bulk it up a bit. It is probably the most complete and filling salad and they have requested it to be made weekly. I’ll take it!


Love the message of the new Mary & Martha apron—because that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
