Boy howdy — I’m late with this post! I barely managed to get lunches together last week, let alone take pictures of them all. And this week’s photos don’t start until Wednesday because I took a bunch of pictures of Tuesday’s lunch with no memory card in the camera. Duh! So pretend this is a photo:
Tuesday I sent a thermos with a leftover concoction from Monday’s lunch. I boiled whole wheat egg noodles in a can of chicken broth and then added some leftover chicken and a big hand full of frozen mixed veggies (peas, carrots, corn and green beans). Wyatt liked it a lot, except for the chicken. He is still telling me that he hates chicken, but I keep trying it on him anyway in hopes that he’ll eat it again some day. I also sent some strawberries.
Wednesday He got a cheese stick, strawberries, a bun with a star stamped into it and mini meatballs. I also sent a monkey full of catsup for dipping the meatballs.
Thursday’s lunch had blueberries a half banana, a cheese stick (chopped up to fill the gaps), one strawberry and a bun.
This week Wyatt was studying the letter “Q” at preschool, so Friday I put a quesadilla in his lunch along with some strawberries and blueberries. The quesadilla got a big thumbs down from Wyatt which surprised me a bit because I’ve given them to him in his lunch before and he liked them a lot. I think he didn’t like it after it got cold, so maybe I could figure out a way to send it in the thermos. I’m not sure how I could do that without it getting soggy though. But maybe he wouldn’t care about that. Hmmmm…I’ll have to think on that a bit.
