My son had the state’s standardized testing today and was let out early, so no need for a packed bento this morning.
Since he’s always bemoaning the fact that the school cafeteria is problematic for the timing of insulin shots and he can’t get a hot meal, he requested a freshly made lunch he can only get at home.
Hmmmm…. sounds like it’s time to try my hand at octo-dogs!
These were amazingly easy and fun to make. Just zip, zip, zip and dunk dunk dunk… and TA DAAAAH!
I tossed in some cherry tomatoes (even though my son hates tomatoes) and sliced some green peppers up to be seaweed. I had to move fast as CJ was practically eating out of the bowl before I had given him his insulin.
Alas, the tomatoes were not eaten, but everything else was. And he LOVED the octo-dogs — he said he doesn’t want them in a school lunch, but he’d love them any other time.
With the noodles in cream sauce and a bowl of ice cream, the meal was 80 carbs.
The noodles have gluten in them, but the brand of hot dogs my family prefers do not! Yay!
