yellow is the new brown.

It is that time of year, when I keep reminding myself, in Annie-like fashion: "the sun will come out, tomorrow!" For some reason, this year in particular, I have been craving the glowing warmth of that blazing ball of fire. And although I cannot do anything about the sky, I can add a little warmth and sunshine to my children's lunches. So when they open up their brown bags, they will be filled with glowing yellow on top of yellow: a bag full of sunshine to brighten their day.

What goes into a 'yellow brown bag'? Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • freeze dried corn pieces (buy at whole foods or online at just tomatoes)
  • mini corns (canned tiny corn cobs)
  • yellow squash
  • yellow pepper slices with ranch (maybe ranch with a tsp of mustard for color?!)
  • quiche wedges
  • egg pasta with olive oil and Parmesan
  • egg salad sandwich
  • Hawaiian bagel w/pineapple cream cheese
  • yellow beets, roasted with olive oil and salt
  • egg bagel with cheddar and butter
  • granola or yellow-colored cereal with milk
  • lemon yogurt
  • golden yellow apple slices
  • dried apple, pear, banana, pineapple or mango slices
  • pineapple
  • banana
  • lemon bars
  • cheddar rice cakes
  • popcorn
  • lemonade
It you like colorful, bagable ideas, here is a bagful of white ideas and a bagful of red.
