Easter Egg Lunch Box

Easter Egg Lunch

Scroll down for today's recipe and you'll see….that there is none.

No recipe -- what?! Well, don't be upset because this is one of the cutest ideas for school lunch that I've ever seen. You know those plastic Easter eggs you've got that are probably stored in your house somewhere just waiting to be used once a year? Here's a cool new way to use them for school lunch. Just fill each egg with a variety of different foods, pack them up, and come lunchtime your kids can open them up for edible surprise after edible surprise. Here are a few of our favorite things to stuff them with_

* cheese cubes
* olives
* berries
* almonds, pistachios, walnuts, roast sunflower seeds or cashews
* whole grain crackers
* raisins, dried cherries, cranberries or other dried fruit
* turkey or ham cubes
* edamame
* cooked pasta

Happy Easter!
