I was a little apprehensive when I checked the returning lunch boxes yesterday, but thankfully they were all empty and the feedback wasn't bad.
The contents had looked a little pale though.....(small sprig of home grown parsley added for a splash of colour!)
I fought and lost the battle for brown bread, but not to worry, I'll find another way to get more fibre into them! They're having cream cheese sandwiches, with a bit of chicken today. (I stripped every single, solitary morsel of meat off that bird last night and made some lovely stock)
My crisps alternative is crackers with a spread of marmite. No complaints about the carrot sticks either and they all loved the muffins. I put half a tin of the peaches + juice into the muffin mix so they were sweet and gooey. Carrot muffins next (the children are going to be sick of the sight of carrots by the end of this week!)
Tonight we had leek and potato soup followed by pancakes, of course! Well, drop scones to be more precise. I used Hugh FW's recipe - but watered down the milk and cut back on butter to save on supplies. They were still delicious!
