Back to School Lunch Ideas!

Happy Eclipse Monday!  We ran around outside with our paper glasses on this morning, and watched the moon come and go – very cool!  It got noticeably darker and cooler here in Seattle – very cool but also creepy?

We just got back from an amazing trip to the Oregon Coast with my family! It was the perfect week of sunshine and beach exploring, along with quality family time all together.  I have looked forward to it all summer long and I can’t believe it has come and gone.  Never long enough!  Now that we are back it is officially “back to school” mode here.  We still have a few weeks of summer left to squeeze out as much fun as possible, but I’m trying to get all our back to school stuff ready now so I’m not scrambling!

I’m sorry that I’ve been so absent here lately!  I hope you guys know I haven’t forgotten you.  The days of long baby naps and breaks are long gone, and these days I find myself rushing between school and little league, the kombucha shop, and then once we get home I’m throwing dinner together while refereeing over hot wheels garages and Magna-tile towers.  I know I never write about food here anymore, but I promise you I do still cook – ha!  If you’d like to follow along on our food adventures, the best place for that is my DG Instagram account!  I try to post snippets of what we are eating, seasonal easy meals, and most recently – school lunches!  So if you are missing your foodie fix, please follow along!
