My lunch Top tier: Pumpkin seeds, garlic triscuits, cheddar and 2 pierogi. Bottom: Carrots, blackberries and banana mini muffin.
The recipe came from the Betty Crocker cookbook. My go to manual. I did make a few changes, instead of 1/2 a cup of butter I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup of applesauce. I'm out of whole wheat flour. Instead of using the whole 2 cups of white flour called for I filled the measuring scoop half way and added several spoons of wheat germ. I can't tell there is applesauce and wheat germ in there. Neither can Mr J, and he's picky.
I am pretty impressed by how well the bread un-molded. I did grease it VERY well, but still. Many a baker knows the sadness felt when a hot delicacy falls apart on your kitchen counter. Coming out wonderfully? Priceless! (lol) It is hard to see the design, I wonder what would show better in the pan. Cake maybe?
The mini muffin pan works great. The tiny muffins fit perfectly into our bentos. I'm defiantly going to look for another pan.

Honey turkey, swiss sandwich on wheat. Yellow box has carrots, ranch, and goldfish. Fruit box holds kiwi and grapes. I finally decided I just don't like kiwi often, I cant get myself to eat it. This was a large amount of food, I ate slowly and snacked for awhile. I don't plan to buy deli meat often, its expensive and not healthy. Its a treat and we're enjoying it.
