Small Bites VPK School Lunch

So. Tonight’s dinner was a total and utter disaster. It didn’t even start with the best of intentions. It was doomed. Right from the start. If you follow me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/SprinklesinmyLunchbox), then you know. I mentioned that it involved lamb and a crockpot. That’s all I am willing to say about it. I might barf just thinking about it. **SHUDDER** We ate cornbread and mashed potatoes (homemade, at least!!) instead. I threw some grapes on our plates too, just to take away from all the carbs. I was just so happy to have something edible for my kids to eat, that I didn’t care about what it was.

Don’t even ask me why I bought the lamb to begin with.

It was a baaaaaaaaaaad decision.

#regret

Anyways, because of that regretful decision, when it came time to make my Bigs’ school lunch for tomorrow, I didn’t even feel like touching meat. Of any kind. Or food. Of any kind. So I give myself a little leeway on this lunch. It was packed in a hurry. And without much thought. Sorry, Kid.

I made green grape and Colby jack cheese kebabs. I also packed two little cornbread muffins from dinner tonight, some homemade applesauce, a banana, some dried fruit (mandarin oranges, blueberries, banana chips), and two chocolate covered almonds.

Tomorrow’s a new day. Tomorrow, I’ll make good food. Tomorrow, the regretful smell of tonight’s dinner will have cleared.

Can’t wait for tomorrow.

Abra-Kebab-ra

Tomorrow is my Bigs’ last day of school for the week. And what an exciting week he’s had! He’s looked for shapes on a scavenger hunt, he’s read lots of books, he’d made new friends, and he’s eaten SO many great lunches (HA! I HOPE he finds them to be great!).

For Friday’s lunch, I made kebabs. Kid kebabs.

*I just realized I misspelled “kebab” in my picture. Ain’t nobody got time to fix that.*
I rolled up Applegate Naturals ham and cut it into pieces. I put them on a kebab stick, alternating the ham with pieces of colby jack cheese. I packed seasoned corn, cotton candy grapes, blueberries, Simply Go Gurt (I don’t typically let them have these, but every once in a while), and for dessert, peanut butter brownie balls (I had a made a pan of slightly under cooked brownies, studded with mini Reece’s cups, and rolled bite-sized pieces into balls).

PS! My Smalls had a GREAT first day and ate almost his entire little lunch!

Happy Almost Friday!

Now therefore, our God, we thank you, and praise your glorious name.
