Doesn’t it seem that part of nearly every holiday celebrated in the United States involves candy? Whether it’s Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter…there seems to be a tradition of C-A-N-D-Y with each and every holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for allowing my kids to indulge in sweet treats every now and again. After all, we are trying to teach them that candy/sweets are to be enjoyed in moderation and reserved for special occasions like holidays, birthdays, etc… It’s just that I’m hoping we can establish a few traditions of our own that involve more than just candy. I found some non-candy goodies to include in the boys’ Easter baskets this year and I thought I’d share them with all of you in case anyone is stumped for ideas.
Today’s lunch is a “quick-and-easy” lunch as our week has been a little on the hectic side. It includes: scrambled eggs (thermos), strawberry mini muffins, grapes/blueberries, orange pepper, peas, cheese curds, macadamia nuts
