On Monday, I sent a thermos full of leftover spaghetti and meat sauce in my 1st grader’s lunch. For sides, I packed a dinner roll and grapes and a Z Bar that he collected on Halloween went into the box for a little treat too.
My two-year-old’s lunch for day care was peas, roasted carrots and chopped pot roast with potatoes and gravy that were left over from Monday’s dinner.
Wyatt chose this day as his school lunch day. On the menu:
- cheese french bread pizza
- chocolate “kookies” (They’re not real cookies??)
- chocolate milk
Wednesday’s toddler lunch was: frozen mixed veggies (the babysitter heats them up), Israeli couscous, strawberries (from the farmer’s market! In October! And they’re good!) and baked teriyaki tofu that I cut into sticks.
My first grader’s lunch was packed in the Laptop Lunch Box: Scrabble Cheez-its, a whole wheat dinner roll, strawberries, grapes, little tomatoes and baked tofu cut to look like the Bat Signal. The little blue container has two little Tootsie rolls from the Halloween stash in it for a treat.
Thursday’s big kid lunch was packed with mini ham sandwiches (the bread was cut into circle shapes), strawberries, pretzel thins and a whole wheat bun. This lunch was packed in an Easy Lunchbox.
And today’s 1st grade lunch repeated the same foods you saw earlier in the week: Scrabble Cheez-its, grapes, ham sandwiches cut into W shapes, strawberries and the ever present dinner roll. I bought the W cookie cutter a long time ago, put it away with the other big cookie cutters and then promptly forgot about it. I found it again last week when I was digging out the big bat cookie cutter.
