This is also the time period when I am the most exhausted. All the energy I started off with in the morning has slowly seeped right out through my toes, and 5 pm is when I suddenly realized that it's gone.
I'm desperate for easy-to-make, colorful, mostly-healthy, child-approved finger-food meals. Casseroles are anti-toddler...
Meat and cheese tortilla roll-ups! It's simple... layer any kind of lunch meat and any kind of cheese you know your kids like, and use mayo or mustard to make the tortilla hold together when you roll it up. Slice into little pieces. Sprinkle random veggies around :). Voila!
Obviously, I cut everything up just a little smaller for Jack, but both boys liked it!
