We have had some lovely weather this fall, Sunday was sunny and clear so we went to Black Moshannan State Park and had a picnic and took a walk. I packed up the kids lunches in their new 'Goodbyn Bynto' Boxes - they are really fun for kids and have a handle on the top. I decorated them with dishwasher safe stickers that I thought the kids would really like too. We all had Apples, Pretzels, and Jeffrey had his usual Peanut Butter Sandwich, Meredith had Cream Cheese Sandwiches. (I had a grilled chicken salad with pecans, apple and lemon dressing and Mike had a salami and cheese sandwich.)
Friday Funday was Papa John's Pizza Day and I visited Jeffrey at school for lunch. We had grapes, carrot sticks, Milk and Cheese Pizza. All the kids talked to me about 'Spooky Haunted Houses'. Jeffrey loved the pumpkin muffins we made this week. I added a streusel topping and they were really good. We like them warmed in the microwave.
This week school was cancelled on Monday and Tuesday because of Hurricane Sandy. We did not experience any power outages or severe weather, which we were thankful for. On Friday Jeffrey was also home from school for an inservice day.
This Halloween I chose not to do too much for Jeffrey's Lunch because he was having a Halloween Party at school and I wanted him to have a really healthy good for his tummy lunch before he had cupcakes at school and candy in the evening! He had many yummy sugary treats which were not pictured here!
