The days seem to rush by so fast and the week is so busy lately. Soeren has been invited to two birthday parties and he so excited about the whole thing. These are his first official birthday parties. You know the ones I mean ... with actual birthday invite cards from the kid's mums and the ones that make you feel like you are part of the "in" group! When I picked him up from the KIGA he came rushing to me and whispered,
"I have been invited to two birthday parties mum!"
"WOW!" I exclaimed
"Shhhh! Not so loud .... they'll think this is my first one. That's not cool!"
I swear he is not even four years old (in August) so two questions:
1. How does he know what is cool and what is not?
2. Does it matter at almost four to be cool?
I really wanted to crack up but hey ... that's not cool, right!
Today's lunchbox is filled with some great stuff! The Finnish bread is packed with a mediterranean chicken salad. Carrots to crunch and juicy honey melon. The "Wasa" crisp bread is spread with yummy Nutella. Today's treat yoghurt muesli pops.
The chicken salad is really a breeze to make. Cut up some leftover grilled chicken breasts or if you have a rotisserie near you buy some there. Dice it up. Add some sour cream mediterranean tomato pasta sauce (just a few spoonfuls) and cream cheese. Mix well. Cut up some onion, bell peppers and any other vegies you like. Add this to the chicken and mix. You can use this to fill anything you like - wraps, rolls etc. The Wasa crispbread with the Nutella is completely delicious and I too can't resist this snack. So, make yourself a few too. Hope you enjoy your lunch!
