Can I just tell you how happy I am that clementines are back in the stores? And they’re delicious too! Yay, clementines!
On Monday, Wyatt’s snack box had a strawberry, two clementines peeled and segmented (he can’t peel them himself yet) and some honey wheat pretzels.
Tuesday’s lunch had more clementines, two turkey meatballs that I cup up and threaded onto skewers and a catsup sandwich cut into the shape of a gingerbread man and decorated with food markers. There’s more catsup for dipping the meatballs in the little pink box that’s barely visible under the sandwich dude.
His snack box was really simple — grapes and more pretzel sticks.
On Wednesday, I sent some ham, grapes, pita crackers, raspberries and strawberries. The ham was cut into strips and then I coiled it up in the baking cup. I love how it ended up looking kind of like a rose.
Snack that day was a half banana, some cranberries and whole wheat cinnamon sugar tortilla strips.
On Thursday we had some awesome leftover Spanish rice that I was going to send in a Thermos, but when I went to get it out and heat it up, Wyatt was very resistant to eating it for lunch. I was a little surprised because he scarfed it down at dinner the night before. There’s not much point in packing a lunch your kid won’t eat though, so I had to scramble to come up with some other stuff. We ended up with another ham rose, pita crackers, clementine wedges, and a few strawberries and raspberries.
His snack was a apple carrot crusher and a box of pretzels, but they were too boring to photograph. Sorry.
Friday’s snack was a mix of Cheerios, Rice Chex, and pretzels. It looks like party mix, but it didn’t have the butter and spices on it. I always forget what a great snack cereal is — I’ll be sending more of it now that I’ve been reminded again.
