Ghost Themed School Lunch

wp-1477311384311.jpg

I’m just aGHOST that I’m blogging this close together! For today’s lunch, I went with a cutie ghost theme for my big first grader. I made a ghost shaped peanut butter and mango jam sandwich. I added some eyes and a mouth with my food safe markers. I also packed Trader Joe’s pumpkin crackers, dried coconut and orange slices, real oranges, green grapes, ghost meringues (recipe forthcoming!), and black and orange chocolate covered sesame seeds.

Boo!

Whiny Wednesday

Ugh. You know that feeling when you’re having a good day, and then all of sudden, you aren’t? That was my day. It wasn’t so bad at first. But then I got overwhelmed with life and also I took in some of my old purses to a resale store and they told me (not so much in words, but with rejection) that my Vera Bradley’s print and style was “old”. I felt washed up. It sort of set a tone for the rest of my day. It was just little things like that, happening for the rest of the day. Oh well. I’m not THAT old.

And I know it could be a lot worse. And a LOT more serious. We’re keeping it light around here tonight.

But still.

And then I had to get to karate, back home, make dinner (pre-fab chicken nuggets shaped like dinosaurs, whatever), and three lunches for tomorrow. I want to soak in a garden tub filled with bubbles, and surrounded by lightly scented candles and silence.

We don’t have a garden tub. Or silence.

On the upside, tomorrow is my day at the Co-op, to work in my Bigs’ classroom. I’m very excited for that. This week they are learning about the five senses. Tomorrow is a taste test. Perfect!

For my Bigs’ lunch, I went with dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets (so what if I’ve said, even here on this blog, that I would only ever make my own chicken nuggets from scratch from then on). Mama’s tired.

I packed four of those not-so-good-for-you nuggets, some ketchup, a homemade honey zucchini muffin (that IS good for you), grapes, pineapple, dried oranges, and banana chips.

For my Smalls:

I made a PB&J half sandwich. I also packed some banana chips, two dried orange segments, some mini cinnamon rice cakes, and an applesauce squeezy fruit.

And for me:

For myself, I packed a salad (iceberg lettuce, orange tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and a packet that comes in my Publix’s pre-packed salads (dressing, nuts, cranberries). I also packed grapes, pineapple, and a yogurt.

Blessings to you!

I need this Bible verse tonight:

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. – Romans 12:2
