School Lunch #8: Ham & Melon Ball Kabobs

On Monday we cooked a ham, one of Christian's favorite foods. A while back I made a school lunch sandwich with left-over ham for Christian, but he surprisingly didn't like it too much. This time I decided to do a kabob instead with chunks of ham and melon balls that I did myself with my Dollar Store melon baller :) I prepped it on Monday night, strung the food on and put it in the container, so that Tuesday morning all I had to do was take it out of the fridge and stick it in his lunch bag. I also cut up some celery sticks and tossed in some pretzel sticks to go with it. This time Christian gave positive feedback.

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.
