Roti Quesadillas

Today BS's lunch was Roti Quesadillas, Juice, Banana for snack and left over Orange kheer for dessert. Auntie was very nice to make roti in the morning. With cheddar cheese in between the rotis, they were lightly pressed on the griddle to make the roti quesadillas. The dessert was not finished at school.

This week from the library sale I got the first book of the Narnia series for only a quarter. The book is called "The Magician's Nephew". BS is almost done with it and admitted she liked it. Now on lookout for the other books at the book sale.

Dal Rice

Today's lunch was super boring. But I am posting since that is what I had promised to do for this month. Lunch was rice, dal, some crunchy sev like thing and  a banana and ferrero rocher for snack.

Though lunch was boring and BS said the dal rice had lost taste the books read recently were interesting.

BS read her first book in the series 39 Clues and seemed to enjoy it.

We read Brahma's Butterfly for LS and she loved it immensely. This book is from Tulika and was a gift for the kids from  Sra.

Ham sandwich with Indian chutney

BS took Ham sandwich made with whole wheat bread, chundo pickle and organic deli ham. Strawberries and a granola bar for snack. LS had Pizza at school.
BS does not like ham much but we started buying organic ham after LS showed an interest in Ham sandwich. BS now likes Ham sandwich as long as it is Indianized with some spicy chundo pickle dressing

Gajar Paratha with Nutella and Yogurt

Today's home lunch at school was Gajar Paratha (paratha made with grated carrots mixed in the dough) rolled with nutella, plain yogurt and clementie. Also a small pack of organic chocolate chip cookies. I am not much of a roti paratha maker but Aunty(LS's babysitter who we hired  a few months back and who helps me a little with cooking) is a great one to make different parathas.

The yogurt came home.

School Lunch and a Clementine

Today was School Lunch day. BS usually does not like meat much and so most school lunches are a no no for her. She picks a few though and today's is one such. She even enjoyed it she said. For her morning snack she carried a clementine.

School lunches in our school district are $2.10 and looks pretty good to me so far.

Tell me about your school going child's school lunch program. Also tell me where this school is and the cost of the meal, if any
