Another week, another batch of lunches for the kids. Check it out, yo!
Wyatt was home sick from school AGAIN, so I didn’t pack him a lunch. Augie is always off on Mondays.
Tuesday, Augie had grapes, little tomatoes, carrot sticks and baked teriyaki tofu that I decorated with bear cut-outs. Here’s a guide to how I did those cut-outs if you haven’t seen it before.
Wyatt had a similar lunch: carrot sticks, sliced tofu, mandarin orange wedges, grapes, whole wheat pretzel sticks and a few little tomatoes. This was packed in our Laptop Lunch box.
Wednesday, Augie had a star-themed lunch: garlic naan cut into small star shapes, deli turkey with a soy cheese star on top, little tomatoes, grapes and mandarin orange wedges.
Wyatt’s lunch was packed into an Easy Lunchbox: whole wheat pretzel sticks, a cheese stick, strips of garlic naan, mandarins and grapes.
Augie has been pretending to be a kitty cat all week, so I cut his turkey sandwich into a kitty shape. He also had goldfish crackers, strawberries and some raspberries.
Wyatt had grapes, a few M&M’s in a little box, Scrabble Cheez-its, a cheese stick (hidden in the silverware area), strawberries and turkey and mayo Boba Fett sandwiches that I cut with our Star Wars cookie cutters.
You might notice that the kids’ sandwiches were made with white bread today. A year or two ago, I quietly made the decision not to buy white bread any more. I didn’t say anything to anyone about it and for the most part no one really noticed. Or so I thought. I accidentally picked up the wrong kind of bread at the store the other day and when I pulled this out, the kids went crazy. “Is this a special treat, Mom?” “Why do we get white bread? Is today Easter?” “Can I have toast for breakfast?” “Oh thank you, Mommy!” Ha!
Today, August’s lunch was packed in a new-ish box that I broke out for the first time: strawberries, mandarin oranges, another turkey sandwich on that wonderful white bread, space soy cheese cut-outs and space goldfish crackers.
And Wyatt had exactly the same thing, minus the soy cheese and plus a cheese stick.
Have a great weekend!
