Wyatt’s snack on Monday was some cheese crackers, ham roll-ups and some apple slices. I didn’t have any lemonade, so I squeezed a lime wedge into a little water and gave the slices a quick dip. This kept them from browning and didn’t effect the taste too much. (I know because the apples came home from school un-eaten and Wyatt had them for his snack while he did his homework. Can you believe that a Kindergartner has homework?? Sheesh.)
The Lego construction worker helped build Wyatt’s lunch on Tuesday. He hoisted the strawberries in with a crane, tucked a couple of Hello Panda candies into the pink box, then got his crew to put in the pita crackers and a mini blueberry muffin. He had a specialist in decorative finishes fold the salami and add that. He knows the limitations in his skill set, after all.
Snack was assembled by me under the Lego construction worker’s supervision while he drank a cup of Lego coffee and talked on his handheld radio (I’m an apprentice so he needs to keep a close eye on me). There were dried cranberries, grapes from the farmer’s market and a cheddar cheese twist.
Wednesday’s lunch featured four of the five tomatoes we’ve harvested from our tomato plants this year, along with some baked teriyaki tofu cut into strips, a few strawberries and half a mini baguette.
About those baguettes…. I’ve been buying them for a couple of weeks now and when I looked at this most recent package, there was a big star on it that said something along the lines of, “These baguettes are slightly under-baked. Heat them in the oven for 3-4 minutes before eating them.” Now they tell me! I’ve been sending raw bread dough to school with Wyatt and he’s been eating it! I thought they looked a little pale and I’ve actually checked the packaging a few times to see if they were par-baked and there was NOTHING on there about that before this week. Poor little Wyatt sitting at school with his lump of dough to eat….
Wednesday’s snack was a cheddar cheese twist, grapes, a mini blueberry muffin and one lone strawberry to fill the last bit of space and keep everything from rolling around the box.
Thursday’s lunch and snack were combined in the laptop lunchbox. When I do this, I’m really just packing him an enormous lunch. I don’t actually designate any one thing as “snack” and another as “lunch”. This one had a toasted mini baguette, salami, strawberries, a few Panda candies, a mini muffin, broccoli and a rice bear and star decorated with catsup.
Friday’s snack was a few slices of salami, raspberries, and some cheddar twists.
