Salad and Ricotta Stuffed Peppers

It seems like sometime around Winter Break the big chic's lunch turned away from the "cute" and towards the leftovers. Even when I try to send a decorated lunch, she ends up asking if she can take "some of this" while we're sitting at the dinner table. We are very lucky that she is able to heat things in the microwave in the dining hall. Otherwise, we'd probably be a lot more limited with the leftovers. Tonight's dinner was Italian salad with ricotta stuffed mini peppers.

Italian salad, red grapes, ricotta stuffed mini peppers

The mini peppers recipe came from my new Giada cookbook (it's also on Food Network) and the salad is the Olive Garden copycat salad dressing with banana peppers, Parmesan, and black olives. (Big chic LOVES banana peppers!)

Looks delicious!! I am jealous that she can heat things up at school, I wish Kidlet could do that!

Looks yummy (minus the banana peppers for me please). :)

I'm always impressed by the variety of your chic's lunches. Not a picky eater.

While I don't have kids, I am a firm believer that kids will eat what they are taught to eat and don't require special "kid food."
