These were the lunchables from the 3rd week of school. Monday last week was Labor Day so I had a free pass from lunch making. *wink*
Misua/Miswa Soup with Shrimps and Chayotes – My daughter loves Misua Soup and she insists on eating it with rice. How’s that for carbo loading? She can eat this all day so whenever I make some, I make a huge batch. ;)
Pasta Alfredo and Parmesan Crusted Chicken Wings – Since school started, I’ve added Short Order Cook to my list of titles, right below Mommy Awesomeness. Kidding! :P I made my own Alfredo Sauce and the wings were set-aside from Tuesday night’s dinner. I’ve forgotten how easy it is to make this creamy white sauce. Now that I remember, no more buying bottled alfredo sauce. You can find the Alfredo Sauce recipe HERE and the Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe HERE.
Baked Wings – We eat a lot of chicken, ground turkey and shrimps. That you probably already know by now. And my first grader just happen to love wings. I used the recipe for Baked Hot and Spicy Drumettes but omitted the cayenne pepper and hot sauce.
Hamburger – I cheated on Friday and used store-bought frozen hamburgers. I used whole grain sandwich thins instead of hamburger buns. There are three things my daughter wants in her burger, a bit of mustard, a bit of ketchup and some pickles. If one of these is missing, you can bet she’ll give you a hard time. ;)
Although you don’t see them in some of the photos, I always include fruit, whether fresh or in light syrup, in my daughter’s lunches. Next week, she’ll be having fresh fruits. I hope to sneak in some veggies, too. Promise. :)
I should probably stock up on acne creams. I’ve got a busy week ahead. You know what that means, my mixer and oven will once again be hard at work. But I hope to be in bed at a decent hour every night. It can be done. Hee hee. *cross fingers*
