Despite the holiday on Monday, we are back to a full roster of lunch box photos this week — including a few bonus shots! Read on!
Monday was a holiday and the kids were off school, so there were no lunches.
Tuesday I packed Augie’s lunch in one of my favorite two-tier lunch boxes: strawberries, cheese sandwich crackers, turkey meatballs from the freezer and a grid of grape tomatoes.
Wyatt decided to eat lunch at school.
On Wednesday, Augie took this lunch to preschool: strawberries, canned peaches that I drained, rinsed and decorated with sprinkles, carrot sticks and turkey meatballs.
Wyatt had the same lunch, but I also threw in a few potato chips as a treat. This was packed in our Laptop Lunch box.
He liked this lunch a lot and when I opened it at the end of the day he’d eaten everything except the carrots. When I asked why he left them, he told me he ran out of time and that he doesn’t really like to eat carrots unless he has dip. Duly noted.
Thursday, Augie had a side car of cheese and crackers that were not fancy in any way. His main lunch was a little prettier though: sugar snap peas, baked tofu cut with a teddy bear decoration and watermelon stars. The trimmings from the watermelon cut-outs are layered underneath.
Wyatt’s lunch was packed in one of our Easy Lunchboxes: ham and cheese sandwich, animal crackers, carrots and bean dip and potato chips. This was packed for a field trip to the beach Thursday so that’s why he had the extra treats.
I chaperoned the trip, so I packed myself a lunch too: watermelon, pasta salad with asparagus and procuitto (tasty, but no where near being worth the effort it took to make), a few potato chips that got soggy and a ham and cheese sandwich. This was packed in our OOTS Lunchbox.
Today Augie’s lunch had triscuits, more turkey meatballs, strawberries and green grapes.
Wyatt had garlic naan strips, grapes, berries and turkey meatballs. Apparently, this was a big week for meatballs*!
* I received no compensation to talk about meatballs. We just love meatballs. I wonder if there’s anyone who would pay me to talk about meatballs though, because I’d totally do that for cash. Hmmmm….is there a National Meatball Council, I wonder?
