Last Day of School Lunch

Well here it is, the last day came and went and this is how we decided to go out this year. We have a cheese sandwich, dry salami, strawberries and apricots, chips w/ salsa and a bit of rhubarb crisp for dessert. Along with this last lunch was field day in which the boys had a great time of playing games and just having a real party of a day at school. So ends the first grade and bento type lunches until next september when there will be 2 lunches every day-yay?

Almost Done

As this week comes to an end, I have mixed feelings. I am glad to take a break from my morning routine for awhile, but I think I will actually start to miss thinking up new things to throw in a lunch. So today's lunch was ham & cheese whole wheat roll-ups, celery, pesto pasta salad, fruit salad, banana muffins and some almonds. This is probably way too much food for big P, but the leftovers work as an afterschool snack for him a lot of times. Tommorow...The Last Day!!!

Pretty Basic Lunch

This lunch needs something...more color! We have a
basic ham & cheese sandwich, grapes, peanut butter
wafers and these crunchy lentil potato curls I found
at Trader Joes. I like them a lot, not too salty and a
unique flavor. Well if I was on the ball I would have
known today was Hawaiian day at school and planned
lunch accordingly, but I found out this morning so not
even so much as a pineapple went into this lunch.

Today's lunch was a whole wheat tortilla filled with black beans and cheese, some carrots and celery, pub cheese(sooo good!) with crackers, a plum and cherry pie with a reminder note stuck in it.

5 Days Left!

I can't believe there are just 5 days of school left. That also means 5 school lunches left. I wanted to make sure this week had great lunches since we won't be making school lunch again for awhile. So this is day 1. Includes bagel with cream cheese, dried cherries, jam in the penguin, corn chips w/ black bean dip, kiwi and cheese cubes.

Homemade Pie

This is not the best picture. It is however the best mini
raspberry pie made by a 7 year old. This was a throw together
little pie tart that big P made for his lunch.
I thought it was adorable. This lunch also has a
turkey "sub" sandwich, crackers and
some hummus in a car shaped container.

Catch-up Lunches

I haven't posted lunches in awhile so I thought I would post
a few of the things we've been eating lately. The top lunch is
peanut butter roll-ups with some blackberries and peaches,
banana, a few chocolate chips in a fishy cutter and a couple of
mini muffins.

Next we have ham & cheese sandwiches, applesauce,
some chips, carrots, blackbeans-why not?, mini muffin,
carrots and for a treat yummy wax sodas!

Lastly this lunch includes rice balls, wasabi snack mix,
olives, broccoli, pineapple cherry picks and a homemade
energy bar.
