Pokemon lunch!

So here is my first attempt at a Pokemon lunch. It seems that Pokemon is quite popular with the 6,7,8 year old crowd so hopefully this will make for a special lunch treat today. Lunch includes Pikachu marshmallow peep, cheese Charmander which I found the idea from
Bento For Kidlet, cheese Pokeball, random yellow pepper star all sitting on top of a sandwich. All I seem to notice when I look at this is the giant glob of yogurt in the other large container, hmmm. Oh and I found mini persian cucumbers that are on picks with olives- look how cute!

Happy Spring Lunch

I've wanted to make this lunch for a while now. It is another great idea from

Vegan Lunch Box.
The real treat is theHoney Bee no-bakes, they are delicious!

Another Monday for Sure

Today was so totally a monday. We kind of all got up on the wrong side of the bed but thankfully it got much better as the day went on. It could have something to do with the 80 degrees and sunny-you think? Littlest P had a playdate in the morning and biggest P had one in the afternoon. We had a great dinner together and it is also the first softball game of the season tonight-all good. So grocery shopping tommorow but I managed to find enough odds and ends to make a lunch. I'm realizing ham is the only meat big P really enjoys, but not so appetizing in this photo!

Easter Eggs

So we started with these

Then we got these

And we were especially proud of this little guy!

So this is big P's easter lunch for school, I definitely liked the addition of sweet to the rice balls with the use of fruit leather but it did not stick on very well and the colors bled by lunch time. Also the ham and cream cheese roll ups don't exactly look appetizing. Middle P even had a special easter snack for kindergarten which included rice bars, marshmallow bunnies and some cheese cubes.

April Fool's Day

Well, this was a fun one. I started off the day with surprising Mr. P with a little purple kool-aid in the shower head( I thought it was pretty crafty) next I had frozen the boys' cereal the night before and just added a touch more cereal and milk to the top-really funny, this was probably the best prank of the day. By dinner time they had caught on and so when I brought out the meatloaf "cake" they knew right away. I still went ahead with this dessert though. It is a grilled cheese sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy or toasted poundcake with orange frosting, ice cream with caramel topping. In the end only one retaliated on me. Big P played a joke on me by asking me to go outside with him and he had put ice cubes in my shoes, well played.

Rainy Day Bento

This doesn't really even warrant a picture except that our spring break has been cold and rainy and we have mostly been hanging out at home. This day we thought we might go to the park and bring our lunch but as it was pouring outside I thought at least we could have a sort of special lunch inside. So this is what we had: leftover chicken, ham "flower", strawberry kiwi, rolled spinach and a few baked cheddar chips. So there you have our excitement for the day, yep.
