Today’s lunch was inspired by the bakery-fresh challah loaf I purchased at Penn Station yesterday morning. I couldn’t resist it and wondered if the kids would love it as much as I do. They both loved the taste they had yesterday, so I decided to use the bread to make a cream cheese and jelly sandwich for their EasyLunchBoxes today:
I sliced the bread nice and thick too! I hope they love it. They also have goldfish and raisins in the main compartment and Strawberries in the fruit compartment. Girlie has cucumbers and grape tomatoes in the small compartment and Little Dude has yogurt (as usual). I really talked up the special Challah bread to Girlie (we didn’t bring home souvenirs), so I wonder if she’ll brag to her friends that her Challah is fresh from NYC!
Our weekend trip to New York City was really fun. I managed to keep the entire trip a surprise from my husband. He knew that we were going somewhere and that he needed 2 casual outfits and one that was a little nicer. He knew were were going overnight. That’s about it. It helped that my mom misled him to think that we were going to New Jersey. He probably expected a night in Atlantic City or something like that. Well, we did go to New Jersey, but just to the train station! Then we took a 75 minute ride up to New York and emerged from Penn Station, straight into the hustle and bustle of one of the world’s best cities!
After checking into the hotel, we wandered around a little and grabbed a quick bite to eat before hustling off to Broadway to see a show! Then we walked back to the hotel (in the pouring rain!), changed, and grabbed a late-night snack and some cocktails in the hotel lounge. I was find so enjoy some live music and just relax. We stayed at a pretty nice hotel this time too! We slept late the next morning, grabbed breakfast at a teeny tiny diner, and headed back home on the train. It was a great trip and we really had fun together. It is so nice that we now live close enough to my parents that they can watch the kids for the weekend and the kids are thrilled to go there! THANKS MOM!
