Happy December! (And a Snowflaked Themed Lunch)

Happy Happy December! Is it cold where you are? Are you wearing boots and scarves? Making snowmen? Dancing in the falling snow?

Welp. I’m in shorts. With my A/C on. Dreaming about a cold winter. It’s a pipe dream, really, for us Florida folks.

So, I’m pretending it’s cold. My house is DECKED out in Christmas, I drink hot chocolate, I wear Christmas themed t-shirts. I’m trying, people.

I wanted to make a special December 1st lunch for my big boy for today, but I had a horrible migraine. So, I am made some today for both my boys for tomorrow.

A chilly, wintry themed one.

 I made snowflake shaped jam sandwiches and added details with my Food Writers. I also packed goldfish crackers, colby jack cheese, dried cranberries, a mandarin orange (Bigs), a Go-Gurt (Bigs), grapes (Smalls), and a snowball donut (that was leftover from the special breakfast our elf Duncan [Donuts] brought the boys this morning).

Snowflake VPK School Lunch

Where has “Winter” been this year? So far, where I live in the South, we’ve not had a very consistent season. It was in the 40’s last week and in the 80’s this week. No wonder my allergies are going bananas. Even though it feels like Summer right now, I still thought it would be fun to make a wintry lunch for my bud. And who knows, maybe it will beckon the rightful weather of this Winter. Fingers crossed. PS I know I might be the only one who actually wants Winter weather. I just wanna wear cute boots. Sue me.

I made a ham, cheese, and mayo sandwich (I use Applegate Naturals for both meat and cheese) and used my snowflake cutter and Food Writers to add details. I put the other half of the sandwich (with the inverted snowflake) in a container for my little guy to eat for lunch tomorrow. I also packed Trader Joe’s honey wheat pretzels, raisins, mandarin orange, little red grapes, and a teeny, cute Costco cinnamon bun that my friend hooked me up with (Thanks S!!).
