Lunch Catch Up

These weeks, you guys. Oh bless me. They’ve been challenging. I haven’t been on top of my daily lunch game, but I’ve been able to do a few. So here they are. In all their “glory”.

Sunbutter and jam (or ham and cheese, I just can’t remember!!) on hamburger buns, popcorn, green grapes, raisins, and a Twix bar.

Another Lunchable – ham, colby jack cheese, Ritz crackers, green grapes, pears, and a cut up Star Crunch.

Another hamburger bun with some kind of filling ( 🙂 ), green grapes, popcorn, and a “New York Peppermint Patty”, as my boys call them.

And for tomorrow’s lunches – mini pancakes and apple butter sandwiches, cubed cheese, rolled up ham, green grapes, and a few little chunks of Trader Joe’s pumpkin Pop Tarts.

Whew.

Have a great week!

Homemade Uncrustables Lunch

I am happy to report that Bigs’ behavior was better today, but unhappy to report that it soured after I already included a lunch dessert in the lunch I just packed for him. As I sit here typing this, and also browning onions for our kielbasa dinner, he is in timeout, thrashing about his room, screaming, and stomping on the floor. I think I felt another gray hair pop up.

Since I already packed him a lunch dessert, I am hopping he earns it back.

I made a homemade PB&J Uncrustable. I have this little tool that pinches off the crust (and makes it into a square). I love this tool since it doesn’t waste a lot of the bread (only a thin part of the crust). It’s called the Wonder Sandwich Sealer N Decruster. I think I got it at Target on clearance a while back. Anyways, I pressed down the edges with a fork to further seal in the PB&J. I packed my homemade fruit snacks, Goldfish crackers, carrot chips, and three mini homemade chocolate chip cookies. It’s like a little (and healthier!) Lunchable.

I really hope his behavior allows him to enjoy his Lunchable as a whole, versus having an empty cookie spot.

Hope springs eternal!
