."bits and pieces"...aka "picnic".

This is a regular lunch/dinner time event in our house. If you ask Oscar what he wants for lunch or dinner, 9 times out of 10 he will ask for a picnic.

A traditional meal carried on from our Mother for both my sister and I. It sure beats a peanut butter sandwich any day.

We eat it for dinner once a week - although the dinner version is a little more elaborate, catering for Mum and Dad too with some nice breads, cheeses and the sort. And it is eaten for lunch a few times a week.

I find it the easiest way to get the kids to eat anything it up on the picnic platter and they seem to eat it all!

Our favourite foods to include are apples, grapes, any fresh fruit cut up into small pieces, sultanas, dried apricots, crackers, dip (hummus or tatziki), cheese sticks, ham, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, red capsicum sticks, fetta cheese, pineapple from a can and much, much more!

So, if you are sick of the same old sandwich for lunch or want a quick, healthy dinner, try some bits and pieces. The kids are guaranteed to be impressed!

Oh Toni, Lil is so blonde now! We have picnic dinners occasionaly too, esp good when morning sickness prevents you cooking meat. We even spread out a beach towel on the floor to add to the picnic-y feel :-)
Hope your well!
