We’re back from a fantastic week on Kaua’i, which I’m convinced is paradise on earth. After anticipating the trip for more than a year, and the wonderful time we had with my parents-in-law, brother- and sister-in-law, and niece, it’s hard to come back to reality. Last week, I didn’t think about new recipes or blogging at all. I was too busy soaking up the sun, downing fruity cocktails, going to the beach with the boys, and — for one glorious day — ziplining!
As usual, vacation time passed way too quickly. We just got back yesterday morning, so I’m not quite into the swing of things just yet, but I made this easy-peasy lunch — packed in an Easylunchbox — for Johnny to give to the boys (they each have one) while I’m tutoring tomorrow.
I cut two fish shapes freehand (as if you couldn’t tell, haha) from tortillas, then spread them with peanut butter and jelly. Sounds gross, but my boys like “peanut butter and jelly quesadillas.” The fish are in “water,” aka blueberries. I also cut up a mango to remind them of the trip (they both loved the mangoes in Hawaii), and sliced up some strawberries to add color to the lunch.
I don’t usually post personal photos on this blog, but just this once, I’m going to share a few of my favorite images from vacation.
Thanks for looking! Next up — a super yummy pound cake! I hope everyone has great weekends.
