Well, you’ve almost made it to Friday! Yippee! That’s always cause for celebration in our house. For tomorrow’s lunches for my little turkeys, I went with a turkey theme. This just might be my altogether favorite themed lunch from over the years. I’ve probably done this one over a dozen times and it never gets old to me. I think that little turkey is so darn cute! I made a turkey shaped PB sandwich. Ain’t nobody (re: me) got time for jelly today. I used my food safe markers to add some details. I also packed some crackers, a mandarin orange (Smalls), fresh berries (Bigs), red grapes, half a cheese stick, and a pumpkin brownie with a candy corn for dessert.
Hope your Friday isn’t too fowl! HAHAHHAHA
You know how sometimes your kids say things the wrong way and you don’t want to correct them because it’s so cute? I have many words like that. I want to relish those sweet little made up or wrong words as long as I can. We still refer to “ice cream” as “cup cup” in our house, occasionally, because that is how my Bigs chose to say it when he was around one. And he’d say that a kitty would say “haaaaaa oooooooo” instead of “meow” and my Smalls would call them “cree crats” and say they would meow like “wah wah”. I love it. I love going through the notebooks I’ve got for each one, reading their fun moments and words.
Anyways. While I wipe my tears (caused by knowing they are getting bigger and saying words correctly), look at Bigs’ school lunch for tomorrow:
I made a PB&J “cree crat” with a rather large face. He’s sitting snuggly atop his crusty blankets. I also packed some pretzel nuggets, strawberries, grapes, an organic yogurt squeeze, and a homemade GF DF PB&J cookie.
And for my little “cree crat” loving Smalls:
He requested hummus and carrots, so that’s what he got. I trimmed down a beautiful organic blood orange colored carrot and put it with olive hummus. I also packed grapes, a few pretzel nuggets, dried cranberries, a mozzarella cheese stick, and a PB&J cookie. He’ll probably eat the cheese stick for snack, along with the applesauce I’ll also pack.
Yippee. Tomorrow’s Friday.
Here’s a “Yay Friday” lunch:
I packed a ham, cheese, and mayo gold star and party hat (details made with food safe spray and Food Writers), honey wheat pretzels, colby jack cheese stick, fruit salad (mandarin oranges, strawberries, blueberries, and red grapes), a Campfire Cookie, and one teeny, little Fairy Bite. I used party hat and clown picks to add some flair.
