Dining with Dylan: Thanksgiving Edition

"I was totally inspired this week by the cooler weather, Turkey Day and flavors of those Thanksgiving comfort foods. Dylan loved pressing the oat bar mixture into the pan for baking, and we both sat in front of the oven watching them bake, enjoying the hint of cinnamon wafting through the kitchen. This meal very well might be our pre-Thanksgiving fun feast! This Autumn inspired lunch is served up in the fun Itzy Ritzy Monkey Bento Box (my personal favorite, and Dylan's too)!" 


  • Turkey Swirls made with Whole Wheat Lavash, Maple Roasted Sliced Turkey, Honey Infused Goat Cheese and Fresh Spinach (all from Trader Joe's)
  • Turkey Shaped Pasta (from Cost Plus World Market, Seasonal Item), Olive Oil, Garlic and Parmesan Cheese
  • Homemade Oat Bars with Dried Cranberries (adapted from a Snack Recipe featured in Williams Sonoma Kids Cookbook) - ingredients: butter, steel cut oats, ground cinnamon, brown sugar, dried cranberries, salt
  • Organic Apple Slices dusted with Ground Cinnamon
