Wahooooo! My beloved Warriors won the NBA playoffs this week and they are officially the champs!
We were all on a high after Monday night’s game, so of course I had to make Augie a Warriors lunch for day camp yesterday. I hadn’t planned this lunch in advance so I didn’t buy anything special to make this lunch — I just used stuff I already had in my kitchen.
I started by grabbing our brand new Neptune Blue Yumbox Panino (thanks for sending me this sample, Yumbox!) because it was the absolute perfect shade of Warriors blue. Next, I chopped a yellow nectarine into chunks and sprinkled them with a few blueberries for more blue and gold.
I wanted to add in the initials for the Warriors somewhere in the lunch box and I had been planning to use cheese or fruit leather to cut them out but we were out of both so instead I peeled a cucumber and cut the letters from the skin. Augie didn’t eat these, but they gave a nice effect.
Next, I made a quick sunflower seed butter and jelly sandwich and drew a basketball on it with food coloring markers. I always mess up the black lines when I’m drawing a basketball, so this time I dug up a basketball sticker and copied it. I think it came out pretty well!
And last, but not least, I put a few gummy bears in the treat compartment. I made sure to get a few blue and yellow bears on top!
