Sorry that I have not be blogging lately, but the end of school and start of summer have been a busy time for us. This week, the girls are attending a wonderful day camp, the OU Sooner Flight Academy. Not something that is in our budget for four kids, but thankfully we received a partial scholarship from the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission.
The girls are there for seven hours each day, so we send a packed lunch with them. Since this will be a short post and folks have expressed an interest in our lunches in the past, I thought I would share a picture of yesterday’s lunch.
Lunch consists of: a nitrate-free turkey and organic cheese roll-up with olives, baby-cut carrots, grape tomatoes, a sprouted grain pretzel, plain yogurt with honey, and cut-up bananas and pineapple. For camp, we’ve been sending ice water as the beverage, although we normally send white milk during the school year.
I’ve been trying out some new recipes on the girls and should be posting those soon. Some were hits, such as a chilled strawberry soup, and some were misses, such as a new honey-lime slaw dressing that I tried on broccoli slaw.
Again, I am a better correspondent on my Facebook page, so please join me there for more frequent updates and information.
