Dishing on Fridays


I’ve been trying to come up with a way to summarize the last several weeks but I’m afraid it just can’t be done tonight. So before I sit and stare this blank screen all the way into tomorrow I have to put up my Friday lunch post. We had a three-day school week because NR wasn’t feeling well on Monday and Tuesday…and she had to play a little more hooky while Poppy and YiaYia were still here.

Wednesday: broccoli baked potato, salad, apple slices and cookie dip (psst- its really tofu!!) dip, and a cheesy & date biscuit (wheat-free!)


cookie dip– I love this. warning: if you are looking for super sweet, this is not for you. no cacao nibs around here so shaved some 100% cacao (very bitter, so shave small!) and used sunflower seed butter bc of school’s nut-free policy




Thursday: fish sticks (leftovers!), spaggetti-squash mac and cheese mini muffins, cantaloupe and strawberries, cucumber/feta salad

fish sticks

cucumber salad ( i add feta)

spag squash mac & cheese was another wheat-free experiment and we love it!! use your fav baked mac & cheese recipe and sub the squash for the noodles! My fav: Ina’s recipe.





Friday: Pasticcio (leftovers!), greek salad, kiwi and strawberries

Pasticcio– I was afraid clif was going to eat himself sick on this stuff. Apparently its even better with the right type of pasta!

  1. You better bring NR home so Ms Debbie can take her for a Happy Meal!!
    Oh, OK…we’ll just get the toy…skip the McNuggets, fries, & coke!
    Your lunches look delish!!
    Miss all of you!

    • did I tell you about the time I made NR a “happy meal?” She asked me if I knew what one was and if I had heard that they came with a prize so I just had to treat her. I bought one of those colorful chinese take-out boxes and filled it with nail polish, cookies, and sticker and gave it to her when I picked her up from school one day as a surprise!

  2. Wasn’t hungry….but am NOW!
