Notes
  • This is sure to create smiles when you pack it in your kids' lunch thermoses. If they have it along with a cup of low-fat milk, they'll be well on their way to getting their daily calcium requirements.
     
  • Why not bring a lovely, old-fashioned end to this meal with our delicious Fried Apples!
