Happy Friday! (And some turkey themed lunches)

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

Happy November and Squirrel Themed Lunches

Happy November! I love this month! It has my favorite holiday in it! And while I admit, the weather here in Sunny Central Florida doesn’t match the month, it still just feels different. There’s a different feeling in the air.

Oh yes, boy, it’s Fall alright!

Anywho. Here’s my first fun lunch of this glorious month, and it’s got tree rats in them, as my Mom call them. 😀

I made squirrel shaped sandwiches (PB for Bigs, cheese for Smalls), bread acorns for the tree rats, Good Thins veggie blends crackers, a mandarin orange, green grapes, and a Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie for dessert.

Get to it!

First Day of Fall Kindergarten & 3’s School Lunches

Tomorrow is…wait for it…okay don’t…THE FIRST DAY OF FALL! For us, living in sunny and hot Florida, this means nothing more than not looking like a wackadoodle for putting out pumpkin decorations (I proudly fall into the wackadoodle category, as my fall decor has been out for weeks!). Sometimes, we Florida girls will also wear boots, quite unnecessarily (I also do this), order our weight in (sometimes skinny and alternative milk) PSLs (look it up if you don’t already know), and marvel at how crisp our mornings have been, in the mid 70’s. Ahhhh, Fall! Would I love to see some orange leaves? Yes. Would I love the weather to require boots or snuggly sweatshirts? Heck yes. But for now, I shall celebrate with pumpkin shaped sandwiches in my kids’ lunchboxes. I do what I can with what I have.

****slurrrrrps on my PSL****

For my babes, I made a honey maple turkey, colby jack, and mayo sandwiches shaped like pumpkins. I used Food Writers to add a few details. I also packed cheddar sandwich crackers, peaches, grapes (for Bigs), broccoli (for Smalls), applesauce squeezey (for Bigs), an Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookie, and a few candy corn (or “candy pa-corn” as my Smalls calls it).

It’s Fall Y’all!
