HAPPY FRIDAY! I am so glad it’s Friday. Forrealz. I made squirrel shaped apple butter sandwiches for my boys. I also packed dried cranberries (Bigs), corn, cheese (two different kinds for two different tastes), mandarin orange (Bigs), grapes, and a cranberry cookie (Smalls).
Today was an *almost* headache free day. Praise! I was able to put together these fun turkey themed lunches for my boys. I made a turkey shaped sunbutter and jam sandwich. I used Food Writers to add eyes, beaks, gobblers, feet, and feathers. Glorious, colorful feathers. I also packed cheddar sandwich crackers, dried cranberries, dates (Bigs), a Pfeffernusse cookie (Smalls), mandarin orange (Bigs), carrots (Smalls), green grapes, and raspberries (Bigs).
I am also the Co-op Parent in my Smalls’ class, so here is my lunch:
I packed salad with dressing, a Pfeffernusse cookie, dried cranberries, kiwi, mozzarella cheese, and green grapes.
I’m SOOOO excited for Thanksgiving! It’s my favorite holiday!
Hello from the other siiiiide
It’s been a while. Halloween has come and gone. I’ve not kept up with both this blog and my “fun” lunches. I’ve had a time getting my migraines and headaches under control. Anyone who has been through that knows, well…it’s a headache! I’m taking it minute by minute, some days.
Here are two of the many lunches I’ve made since we last saw each other. These are the only fun(ish) ones. At least I *hope* they were fun for them. 😀
Pancake and jam sandwiches, mandarin orange (Bigs), carrots (Smalls), grapes, cheddar sandwich crackers, dried cranberries, and three little oatmeal letter cookies.
Another homemade Lunchable – I’ve been doing these about once a week now! This time it was chicken, cheddar, Ritz, a mini banana muffin, mandarin orange (Bigs), grapes, and a piece of Halloween candy.
Peace n’ Blessins’ (look it up, it’s my favorite),
Welp. This about wraps up October, can you believe it?! For their final Halloweeny lunches, I packed spider web shaped sunbutter and apple butter sandwiches. I stuck plastic spider rings in them and used Food Writers to add webby details. I also packed raisins (for Bigs), seasoned corn, dried cranberries, green grapes, snap pea crisps, Trader Joe’s mini pumpkin pies, and a few black and orange chocolate covered sunflower seeds. I used Halloween cupcake picks and rings to decorate.
And since I am blessed to be the Co-op Parent Helper in my Smalls’ classroom tomorrow, I packed myself a lunch.
For me, I packed smoked gouda chunks, Trader Joe’s pumpkin and cranberry crackers, Boar’s Head salami, green grapes, cucumbers, and a mini pumpkin pie.
SAFE AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you all!
For my Bigs’ lunch today, I packed a ham, cheese, and mayo pita. I also packed pretzel goldfish, green grapes, and a cut up Little Debbie Pumpkin Delight. I used a ghost pick in the pita, a zombie hand in the pretzels, and a ghost ring in the grapes.
These weeks, you guys. Oh bless me. They’ve been challenging. I haven’t been on top of my daily lunch game, but I’ve been able to do a few. So here they are. In all their “glory”.
Sunbutter and jam (or ham and cheese, I just can’t remember!!) on hamburger buns, popcorn, green grapes, raisins, and a Twix bar.
Another Lunchable – ham, colby jack cheese, Ritz crackers, green grapes, pears, and a cut up Star Crunch.
Another hamburger bun with some kind of filling ( 🙂 ), green grapes, popcorn, and a “New York Peppermint Patty”, as my boys call them.
And for tomorrow’s lunches – mini pancakes and apple butter sandwiches, cubed cheese, rolled up ham, green grapes, and a few little chunks of Trader Joe’s pumpkin Pop Tarts.
Have a great week!
For yesterday’s lunch, I made a sunbutter and jam jack-o-lantern sandwich. I cut out eyes, a mouth, and a little nose, and added some color with my Food Writers. I also packed colby jack cheese, cheddar sandwich crackers, grapes, a teeny piece of homemade pumpkin pie and one little candy corn. I decorated with a spider ring, a ghost ring, and a little grody rubber rat.
Today is my 2nd blog anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been two years already. It’s been such a HOOT.
To celebrate, here are two cute, little owl lunches:
I made owl shaped pumpkin cream cheese sandwiches. I added googly eyes and used my Food Writers to add wings, beaks, and little owl toes (claws?). I also packed dried cranberries, cheddar sandwich crackers, homemade cinnamon applesauce, and a [partially eaten, shhhh] Little Debbie Star Crunch.
I made a homemade Lunchable(s) for tomorrow’s school lunch. I packed plain graham crackers, sliced colby jack cheese, sliced and rolled ham, dried cranberries, pickles, homemade cinnamon applesauce, and a cut up Little Debbie Star Crunch. And just in case you’re wondering…yes, I eat a teeny portion of that Star Crunch each time I cut it.
Since both of my boys are still learning about farms and farm animals, I made sheep sandwiches for them. They are sheep shaped (say that a few times!) sunbutter and apple jelly sandwiches, detailed with Food Writers. I also packed popcorn (I thought it looked like sheep fluff!), plums, yogurt covered raisins, Craisins, and a few candy corn.
