There’s nothing too special in this week’s preschool lunches, though I did try something new on Wednesday.
Tuesday: Mini blueberry muffin, grapes, blueberries and ham chunks. This box came home completely empty! Mom scores!!
Wednesday: Technically, I don’t think I can get away with calling this a “bento”. I got Wyatt a new thermos so I could send warm foods in his lunch and this is our first pass. He totally loved it and wanted to take it to the playground after school. In fact, he was so into the thermos that he didn’t even notice that I’d packed his beloved blueberries in a separate container, but he did eat them as a snack while I was getting dinner ready. I also sent paella with extra sausage in the thermos and mango lemonade.
Thursday’s lunch was very simple: hamburger bun, banana, and ham chunks. As usual, simple is a winner though — he ate nearly everything.
Today’s lunch was a bit of a scrounge, as Friday lunches often are. I pulled a chicken sausage with garlic and basil out of the freezer, through in some border-line stale goldfish and peanut butter sandwich crackers and plucked off the last edible grapes from thise week’s bunch. The pink container has catsup for the sausage.
