Bread and Spread

Abi's back to her old self and has gotten used to the cast. She's counting the days until it comes off , though, so that she can draw and feed herself again (she's left handed).

Today was real laid back. I discovered yesterday that our hot water had been turned off and would be off for 5 days. I really needed a pre-lunch nap and when I woke up we had a "bread and spread" lunch. It's basically bread with anything the kids want spread on it. Options include but are not limited to:


peanut butter
sour cream
jam
hazelnut spread
chocolate spread
butter
honey
pate'
egg salad


Any combos are also allowed.

Of course, this kind of lunch wouldn't do for every day. But on days when I need a little quiet time, it's perfect. And I don't feel guilty at all because the bread is homemade and nutritious. We usually have smoothies or carrot juice to drink.

"Bread and spread" days are a way to save on time and money without compromising on health. Hey, that's got to be cheating!

Hey, have you ever had apple butter? If not, maybe I can send some next package...It would be good for days like this!

Hmmm sounds pretty good. Glad Abi is doing better.
