So today is the first day of Parker’s spring break. Which meant I didn’t need to pack a lunch today!!!
That is reason alone to celebrate.
But that doesn’t absolve me from lunch duty. It just means I didn’t need to pack it. And I didn’t need to sort it out this morning.
Instead of groggily struggling with his lunch first thing in the morning, I was able to delay to the more reasonable… lunch time. Crazy, I know.
Sadly, I’m not on vacation. So my little guy is having to be patient and entertain himself while I work.
So I decided he needed a treat. I made him his favorite meal — bison carpaccio with a side of berries. Not his favorite — a mini bell pepper split and filled with hummus.
And since he dutifully ate the whole thing — peppers and all — I treated him with a wedge of coffee fudge afterward.
It is, after all, vacation week.
And since today is Monday, don’t forget to check out more Lunch Box Blues over at Rachael Ray’s site!
