Couldn't help myself from taking pictures. I know I do them almost everyday (and I love making lunches) and felt why not share these when time permits. I am sure these pictures will give me an idea for some of those days when mind goes blank what to pack. These could get boring as my kids eat same old and I repeat a lot of them and it could come to a stage where, someone could guess what I have in stock in my pantry and refrigerator LOL...
Almond butter S/W, red peppers strips, grapes, Avocado slice and yogurt. Multigrain cake s/w with almond butter for snack
Chicken hot-dog pieces in thermos, milk, yogurt, avocado s/w, Apple slices and a banana.

Aroma of ghee filled the air. Nothing can beat a blob of ghee in rice with dal or a parata. Making it at home is simple, easy and tastes great. All it needs is to bring butter to boil and little patience to avoid it from burning. You will end up with this goodie to enjoy!

Tried artisan bread for the first time and quite impressed with the result. Crusty from outside but soft inside.
Artisan bread ready
Perfect piece to dip it in olive oil with some Italian seasoning.
I have been thinking of making these and today they were done for our breakfast. Fresh aroma which fills the air during baking cannot beat anything early in the morning. I was in a total bliss. Made from scratch with whole wheat flour and filled with chicken were a wholesome treat.
