We were super, super late for school on Monday, so I just threw a banana and a cup of yogurt in Wyatt’s lunch box. He ate neither.
Food for the kindergartner was packed up in the OOTS Lunchbox on Tuesday. The main component was leftover sausage and tortellini soup and that went into the thermos. For snacks/sides, I packed watermelon chunks, flatbread wedges with ketchup and some strawberries. He also got some homemade raspberry lemonade that I made on Monday using this recipe from last summer.
Augie’s lunch for daycare had a pre-made onigiri rice ball (purchased in the freezer section at Trader Joes), turkey meatballs, “soycatash” (edamame, corn and pappers) and watermelon chunks.
I wanted Wyatt’s lunch/snack for myself on Wednesday because it looked really yummy, if I do say so myself. It had: organic strawberry chunks, flatbread wedges with a touch of cinnamon sugar, a homemade lemon bar (I made them with Bakerella’s recipe), watermelon chunks, cheese tortellini (leftover from Monday’s soup), and chunks of pork tenderloin from dinner on Tuesday night. There was another container of that raspberry lemonade to go with it too.
And happily, it went over very well:
Augie’s lunch also had some of the pork and he got some of the pasta with olive oil and garlic we had as a side dish, too. I rounded out the lunch with cherries, strawberries and some peas.
Thursday I packed canned pineapple chunks (drained really well), cherries, more flatbread and some baked teriyaki tofu.
I wish I’d remembered to take a picture of this lunch when it came home because it was my comeuppance for the high consumption of Wednesday’s lunch. The only thing Wyatt ate was the tofu. He didn’t even take the lid of the compartment with the fruit! I ended up giving it to Augie who loves to finish Wyatt’s lunches.
Snack was very happily eaten, however, which was no surprise since I packed tortilla chips and spicy black bean dip. I also put an applesauce crusher in the lunchbox which he ate about half of.
Today’s snack is a salami “rose”, some whole grain crackers and a good hand full of cherries.
