I packed a lunch for Wyatt on Monday, and I’m sure I took a picture of it, but I can’t find it anywhere. I have no idea what was in it. Anyone want to throw out a guess?
On Tuesday, Augie’s lunch was packed with fresh cherries, a few pinto beans that were leftover from dinner the night before, cubes of ham and a boatload of mixed veg from the freezer.
Wyatt’s lunch had a lemon ginger scone, homemade raspberry jam (in the green box), apple chunks, a yogurt tube, goldfish crackers and skewers of ham chunks.
Augie’s lunch on Wednesday was primarily leftovers from dinner — a new recipe I found in Better Homes and Gardens, Beef and Noodle Toss. I liked it, but it got mixed reviews from the rest of the family so I’m not sure I’ll make it again. I also sent cherries, a few goldfish crackers and frozen peas.
Wyatt left his thermal lunchbox at school on Tuesday, so he had school lunch.
Thursday was the first grade’s class trip to the zoo! In an effort to reflect the theme, I cut giraffe shapes into a block of baked tofu. I also cut some elephant and bear shapes from cheese and layered that on top of a slice of sourdough bread. Other treats included in the lunch were cherries and a homemade turnover that I made with purchased puff pastry and homemade rhubarb jam. I never in a million years thought that that Wyatt would like rhubarb, but he’s crazy for it. Go figure.
Today’s lunch for Wyatt was packed in the hamburger bento box. It had an apple chunk (leftover from breakfast), goldfish, a whole wheat hotdog bun, swiss cheese, turkey roll-ups, and grapes.
Have a great weekend. We’re off to Maker Faire on Sunday — an event more exciting than Christmas for geeks like me!
