I’ll admit it: this was not my most inspired week as far as the lunch-making went. I’m getting kind of bored with the lunches I’ve been packing. Fruit, salami, tofu, meatballs. Snore.
Also, Wyatt is having one of those weeks where he’s being super-picky and refusing to eat almost everything I make him for dinner or suggest for his lunch. It’s hard to stay inspired when all of your best ideas are rejected.
Our cupboards were completely bare on Tuesday morning, so I really had to dig to find enough stuff to fill Wyatt’s lunch box. I ended up sending some leftover beans from dinner the night before, a banana and the last two frozen turkey meatballs. He ate everything but the beans which is weird because he gobbled them up on Monday night.
Wednesday I made him a mini-burrito full of refried beans and jack cheese. I put it in a thermos to keep it warm, but I didn’t take a picture of that because there are very few things in the world that are less appetizing than a picture of a burrito shoved into a thermos. Instead, I present to you a mini burrito on a salad plate. Ta da! I also gave Wyatt strawberries.
Thursday he had baked tofu, corn and strawberries.
Daddy Bento Alert! I have a cold, so Zach let me sleep in on Friday. He also kindly packed Wyatt a lunch of strawberries, salami and a hot dog bun. I have a feeling this one will be a hit.
