Simplifying Meals

I was inspired by this post by Steady Mom about how to keep lunches for kids simple. I have always been a fan of the simple meals, but this just lays it out so beautifully: lunches are a slice of bread with spread, a fruit, and a veggie. Every day. Ahh, how simple and doable. And, especially if you have some homemade whole grain bread, how healthy.

Yesterday we gave it a try with Zosia, and she loved it. Because yesterday's lunch was the last meal before a grocery run, we made do with the last slice of last week's oatmeal bread with some butter and raspberry jam, a slice of watermelon, and a slice of cheese. Yum. And kept her full and grump-free through naptime.

What is your go-to quick meal? Any simple snack favorites?
