Toddler Lunch 24

Today's Daycare Lunch bag:

Snack # 1: Blackberries and strawberries.

Snack # 2: Wheat thin crackers in garden veggie flavor along with freeze fried sour cherries from Whole Foods.

Lunch: Whole wheat pasta shells, onions and peas in sun dried tomato cream sauce. My dear friend SG made this yummy pasta and Y loved it. To make this pasta, I sauteed one clove of garlic, chopped onions, peas, sun dried tomatoes and a dash of Italian seasoning in olive oil for couple minutes. Add cooked pasta and some heavy whipping cream. Top with shredded mozzarella.

For adults, try adding more robust flavored cheese such as smoked Gouda, capers and a heavy pinch of fresh ground pepper.
