Man, I was uninspired lunch-wise this week. I found myself making the same lunches over and over and over — or at least it felt that way. I’ve been doing a lot of other creative projects lately. I wonder if that’s part of it? Hmmmm…I dunno for sure. In any case, here are this week’s lunches:
On Monday, Wyatt’s lunch was packed in an Easy Lunchbox. He had a roast beef sandwich on a whole wheat hamburger bun, pretzels, carrots, bean dip for dipping the carrots (in the red tub), wheat thins, sliced cheddar cheese and some strawberries.
The kids had some jello at a restaurant last week and totally flipped out over it. They begged me for days to buy some jello, so Monday afternoon Augie and I made a big batch. I let most of it set up in a big bowl, but I also poured a little right in some containers for lunches. Brace yourselves for a slew of jello lunch photos!
OK, so Tuesday: Wyatt had another roast beef sandwich, pretzels, strawberries and green-flavored jello.
Augie had Triscuits, soy cheese, carrot chips (purchased at our local gourmet grocery), watermelon and green jello.
Wednesday was another Jello day — I poured it right into a silicone baking cup when I initially made it. I also sent Augie with grapes, deli ham roll-ups and stars that I cut from garlic naan.
Wyatt had exactly the same thing, but I added some carrots to his lunch too.
On Thursday, Augie had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I cut into a gingerbread man shape, strawberries, pretzels and mango chunks (his current favorite fruit).
Wyatt had strawberries, goldfish grahams, pretzels and a roast beef sandwich. I bought a ton of roast beef this week.
Augie’s lunch had mango, grapes, pretzels and turkey meatballs from the freezer.
I really phoned it in on Wyatt’s lunch today. He had a jelly sandwich (cut into “fancy” triangles), pretzels and strawberries.
And in case you were wondering: Yes! I painted my table blue last weekend!
