A quick round up today as I need am off to a team meeting! Hope you don't mind if I skip the ranting today ... some of you are glad I am sure ;-).
Morning Snack: I egged the hot dog today! Huh? We've all heard of the chili dog and the kraut dog right? But today I decided to make a Egg Dog! I had made a bit of my egg salad last night and decided to use this for Soeri. He fancied a hot dog so both of us came up with the "egg dog" ... cool eh? In a nice rye roll, with flax seeds we spread the egg salad and added the hot dog. With this a few crunchy cucumber batons and some juicy melon.
Afternoon Snack: Now there is something about rice pudding that I can never make my mind up about. There are times when I like it and others I can't stand it ... Soeri is somehow no different. But when he wanted me to buy some yesterday I thought we'll try it with one container first. We got some cinnamon flavored rice pudding and I put half of the container for the lunch box. Still have a few luscious strawberries and they went into the container pure! A little muesli milk bar as a treat made him beam from ear to ear.
Adult Variation: Try out the Egg Dog idea it really tastes great. I would advice to add a touch of mustard to it to make it tangy and tasty. A fresh cucumber salad would be an ideal companion to this. Just salt slices of cucumber and soak out all fluids. Add a bit of sour cream and natural yoghurt, salt and pepper and a few herbs. If you like you can also add a touch of garlic to it. Melon is a delicious way to end the lunch. For the afternoon if you like rice pudding then go for it, but I know not everyone craves it. How about a berry trifle? The lovely Ashwini has a great recipe for one.
