I get bored making three meals a day for people. I don't think I'm the only one. Especially lunches. Breakfast is easy: bowls of cereal, oatmeal, toast, cereal bars or granola bars. And for some reason, it doesn't matter that there are so few options. It seems like our lunches are sandwiches of these varieties: peanut butter and jam, peanut butter and honey, ham, turkey, cheese. Or noodles, either Macaroni and Cheese or just plain noodles with Parmesan cheese on top. BORING. So today I mixed it up. Buddy is having oatmeal for lunch. Princess Sparkley is having a tortilla with peanut butter in it, rolled up. I sprinkled a couple of chocolate chips in as a fun surprise. As she was eating and came across a chocolate chip she said, "Are you Grandpa Lund?"*
*from here: The other day, we ran out of candy bars, and I found myself eating milk chocolate chips** out of a tiny Dixie cup... I've turned into my dad (although he prefers semi-sweet).
** I had to open a jumbo sized bag of chocolate chips from Sam's Club the other day just to use 1 cup of them in a recipe. This is bad news because there is also no candy in the house. So I keep walking past the cupboard and taking just one more handful. Over and over and over again.
