School Lunch Box #6

This lunch was made a couple of weeks ago. I had done chicken legs in the slow cooker for dinner that night and Christian loved it. I have started making a little extra to have left overs for lunches the next day. I took the chicken off the bone and diced it up to put in a wrap. This time, surprisingly, Christian requested a little mayo on it. I put a very, very thin layer of mayo on the bread and some chicken and rolled it up. I always put a little plastic wrap around the bottom edge just to hold it together for him. I put some baby carrots on the side and he asked for me to pack a peach. We didn't have any peaches so we substituted with a nectarine.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
