Bento Boxes & Mason Jars

What fun lunch assembling I had this evening! I took a bit of a shortcut this evening and grabbed dinner from the freezer section. What lovely choices they have these days. With the magic of only having to boil water, we had Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Agnolotti, and it was quite saucy so I was able to stretch it by adding in a sliced leftover grilled chicken breast. I'd love to share the recipe, but ummm.. It's a family secret... Anyways, it left me plenty of time to get some lunches packed and the kitchen organized for the week, can't beat that!

Banana Pecan Pancakes

Sometimes dinner just calls for pancakes and bacon. It's a menu that is painless yet indulgent and when you happen to have ripe bananas on hand, a little bit of the guilt is replaced with the comforting component of offering a fruit serving in lieu of a vegetable, right? But breakfast or dinner, these cakes are tender, fluffy and lovely! The only thing missing was a cup of coffee..

Usually at our house, Sunday means pancakes. But today I took over breakfast duty. Migas are one of my favorite breakfasts, especially on Sunday, because they are great for using up the odds and ends in the refrigerator.

Individual Caramel Pecan Tarts

What's better than a decadent, hold your breath and close your eyes dessert? One that is also prepared in minutes, has six ingredients, no cooking and instead of using a special pan, uses mason jar lids.
