Super Easy Lunch

Ahhh...I love when mornings are easy. Today I packed some corn cakes with a packet of almond butter, banana, cinnamon bagel bites and a couple small containers of extra peanut butter and jelly.

Green Lunch

It's Friday! Last day of color lunch week at school. Last night I made some pizza dough and tinted it green. I used that dough to make some rolls for sandwiches in today's lunch. along with the green sandwich there is kiwi, broccoli and snap peas(chips) green m&m's for a treat and a small kiwi container of ranch. Oh I almost forgot they also had a green goodness smoothie that they really enjoyed!

Yellow Lunch

Hooray for Yellow day! I filled today's lunches with triple decker corn cakes with peanut butter and peach jam, cheese cubes, lemon muffin, cheese puffs and a couple of painted marshmallows, some extra corn cakes and extra nuts and cream cheese. These colored lunches have been pretty wacky! Only one day left!

Red Lunch

It's Red day! This one was a hit! We have red tortilla chips, raspberries, red peppers, baby bel cheese, salsa, apple and white ranch dip-oops! Both boys ate all their lunch today-yay! Tomorrow is my favorite color- yellow!

White Lunch

Today was White day. So we made coconut sushi, yogurt raisins, montery jack cheese cubes, pears, cauliflower and some popcorn. Not such a hit with the boys-they brought half of it back home. Apparently it doesn't just look boring it tastes that way too. Oh well onto RED!

Purple Lunch

Today is Purple day in the cafeteria at school so I thought I would participate at home as well. This was not so easy and I really don't think any of this looks at all appetizing. We have purple tinted cream cheese on an english muffin with dried blueberries on top, next to the muffin is actually beet chips which look to me like bacon-hmm, boysenberry yogurt, grapes some grape jelly and purple yogurt melts and yes grape juice. I'm glad we only do purple lunch once. Tommorow is white.

Who Knew?

Believe it or not my kids are not huge meat eaters. So I was so surprised when they told me they loved the mini chicken kabobs in their lunch today! Who knew right? So along with the "chicken kabobs" is some dipping sauce, cheese cubes, raspberries with kiwi, peppers with carrots and a treat-fruit snacks! They both told me they wanted this again so that is good news because this was also super easy.

Monkey's Lunch

This was a fun lunch to do. Middle P was getting a little bored with his lunches and wanted to buy hot lunch today. They do occasionally buy hot lunch but we aren't set up for that right now so I decided to step it up a bit for him today. We have peanut butter banana sandwiches, pretzels with a monkey container of chocolate peanut butter, banana mini-muffins, and some tropical cereal. I also sent a monkey card with a banana joke (I'll spare you the corny joke) written inside. Hopefully they will enjoy this.

Catch-up Lunches

Whew! I have not posted any lunch pics since the start of school. So here are some of last week and this week's lunches. They are all pretty self-explanatory. We are definitely coming to the end of summer fruit and berries and so we are getting as much as we can while we still have them!

First Day of School Lunch

Today was our first day of school and my first time packing two kid's lunches. Pretty standard lunch today. The apple is a cake pop from
Bakerella. I don't think my apple turned out as cute as hers because my food marker would not draw on the candy coating so mine are missing the smiley faces. They are also really sweet, I wish I had made them a little smaller. Well all in all we had a great first day!
