Today is the last day of school before Thanksgiving break and the boys more than ready!  The weather forecast couldn’t be better with unusually high temps for this time of year which means perfect weather for playing football.  Every year we kick off our Thanksgiving day festivities by watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  When I was in NYC I found the book “Balloons Over Broadway” in which author Melissa Sweet tells the story of famed puppeteer, Tony Sweet, who inspired the balloons that have become the trademark of the parade.  The boys loved the book and have been anxious to see which balloons will make an appearance in this year’s parade!

Today’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade themed lunch includes:  peanut butter sandwich made with lavish bread, almonds, carrots, strawberries/blueberries, and with the news of Hostess going out of business last week I couldn’t help but include a healthified version of one of my favorite Hostess treats.  You can find the recipe HERE  all packed in a Planet Lunch Box
