Welcome to the Little Shmoo's Top Five Countdown. Only six lunch days left until school is out, and I thought it would be fun to revisit shmoo's very favorite lunches. This weekend I asked him which lunches he thought were the very best and wrote them down as he said them, with the first one coming in at Number One.
We'll start the list with Number 5: flautas. I first packed these fried corn tortillas filled with beans on December 8th, and then again (with recipe!) on March 16th. Both times they were an enormous success, with repeated requests for more flautas from shmoo and his dad at dinnertime.
Along with flautas and a small container of salsa I packed a pear, blanched broccoli, and half a Thinkorganic! Cherry Nut bar.
Verdict: Only broccoli stems were left in the lunch box. 5 stars for Number 5.
