Day 51

I got a new mini donut pan this week and have put it right to work!
D has 2 blueberry jammy bit donuts with raspberry cereal bar stars for snack today.
Blueberry Jammy Bit Donuts

2 C Flour
3/4 C Sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBS Applesauce (in place of the 1 TBS melted butter the recipe called for)
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c milk (I used skim)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 C blueberry jammy bits

Sift dry ingredients together, add in wet ingredients and jammy bits.  Beat until well blended.  Fill each donut hole 2/3 full (or mini muffin cup) bake in a 350 preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until top springs back when lightly touched.
I made M's lunch for today too.  She had left over "chinese food" and some pineapples.

I use a recipe from Hapa Bento for Shoyu Chicken...I make the marinade then put it in a small crock pot with 4 skinless chicken thighs.  I cook on high until the chicken is cooked through.  I take the chicken out and shred it.  I skim any fat off the top of the juices and put the chicken back in till I'm ready to use it.  I serve it with steamed veggies and high protein pasta.

For lunch the littles had a little bit of everything.  The faces are made from biscuit wrapped meatballs, there are sugar snap peas and yellow pepper flowers, chicken salad and cherry tomatoes.
