Gingerbread is my absolute FAVORITE. I could eat it errday. Forrealz.
In honor of that, here’s my boys’ lunches for tomorrow:
I made gingerbread boy shaped apple butter sandwiches. I added details with Food Writers and chocolate covered sunflower seeds (which I also threw in the lunchbox, as well). I also packed snap pea crisps, red grapes, carrots (Smalls), corn (Bigs), yogurt with gingerbread boy sprinkles, and Trader Joe’s gingerbread boy cookies.
Gingerbread 4 life.
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!
My kids told me that they loved their lunches today so much that they wanted the same again for tomorrow. That couldn’t make life any easier for me! I made another pumpkin cream cheese and cinnamon raisin bread sandwich. I also packed cubed colby jack cheese, a little more rolled up ham this time, dried dates, dried cranberries, dried pineapple, snap pea crisps, and a few little pieces of brownie brittle (brilliant).
Almost Friday. It’s almost Friday.
My Biggie Bigs loved his pumpkin and cream cheese sandwich so much, he asked me to make it again for tomorrow! With that, I also packed a few chocolate covered sunflower seeds, charred corn, homemade berry fruit snacks, freeze dried jack fruit, snap pea crisps, and an organic yogurt squeeze (I forgot to put today’s in his lunchbox from the freezer again – oooops!).
Last Friday was my first Co-op Helper Parent day in my 3 year old’s class. We had such a great time and it was a real hoot to see him in his classroom environment. We got to sick on kid-sized chairs and each lunch together, too.
Here was my lunch:
I packed pizza (I LOVE cold pizza), kiwi, blueberries, carrots, and broccoli.
And for my boys:
Pizza, snap pea crisps, apples (with blueberries for my Bigs), a chocolate chip cookie, and a few chocolate covered sunflower seeds. I meant to add an organic yogurt squeeze for Bigs too, but forgot about it in the freezer…and boy, did I hear about it later!
Did you know that a group of turtles is called a “bale”? And that turtles have their own water filtration system? It’s true. I read it on the Internet. For tomorrow’s lunches, I went with a turtle and green theme. Only my Bigs will be in school tomorrow, but I didn’t even think about that until after I’d already made Smalls’ lunch, as well.
I made turtle shaped sunbutter and strawberry jelly sandwiches. I used my Food Writers to add details. The boys ate the sandwich scraps as I made these lunches. I also packed cotton candy grapes, blueberries for Bigs, a cute little plum, snap pea crisps, and applesauce with turtle sprinkles.
