Here are the lunches I packed for the boys during this very short week:
Wyatt was home from camp because he had an infected bee sting on his foot and we were all crabby.
Tuesday, Augie had a squirrely lunch: turkey and soy cheese squirrel sandwiches with a little acorn decoration, green grapes, raspberries, blackberries, and celery sticks.
Wyatt had raspberries, blackberries, grapes, Chex party mix and a turkey and may sandwich.
4th of July! Woo hoo! Happy birthday, America!
Augie’s lunch on Thursday was packed in the panda bento box: grapes, a turkey and mayo sandwich shaped like an “A”, celery, carrots and mini goldfish crackers.
Wyatt had exactly the same lunch except his was packed in our Laptop Lunch box. I also added in some cape gooseberries that a friend gave us the day before.
Have you eaten a cape gooseberry before? I had never seen or tried one until this week. They are very pretty and come in paper husk that looks a bit like a Chinese lantern. In fact, when I saw them on the table at the potluck we were attending I thought they were a decorative centerpiece! The fruit inside is a little tart and tastes a bit like citrus or pineapple. Very yummy! Wyatt liked them enough to ask for them in his lunch, but not enough to eat them because they came home untouched.
Today, I packed Augie’s lunch in our long neglected Jelly Belly bento box: meatballs, cucumber chunks, strawberries and goldfish crackers.
Wyatt’s lunch had strawberries, mandarin orange wedges, wheat thins, goldfish and meatballs.
Have a great weekend!
