Thursday Lunches

In continuing with Pond Week, I made another turtle lunch for my Bigs. I like how this one came out better than the other.

This little guy has a bit more personality. It’s a PB&J. I also packed honey wheat pretzels, assorted raisins, one date, strawberries, an organic yogurt squeeze, and a homemade dark red velvet cookie. It was big so I cut it in half. I also stuck a few turtle sprinkles on it. Because, sprinkles.

For my Smalls:

He requested pancakes this time, so I made three little PB sandwiches. Under one of those is a red velvet cookie. I also packed a few purple carrots, honey wheat pretzels, grapes, a few raisins, and one date.

And since I’ll be Co-op parent tomorrow, I made a lunch for me too:

I packed purple carrot slices, beet hummus, plain hummus, raisins, strawberries, nuts, dates, and some plain Greek yogurt, mixed with a little bit of maple sizzurp.

Happy (almost) Friday Eve,

Pet Week – Dog VPK School Lunch

Tomorrow is the last day for Pet Week. My Bigs has had a blast! They learned about veterinarians, pet groomers, and different kinds of pets. They made little floats, on which they’ll place a stuffed animal of their choice from home (Bigs picked a warthog that he named “Piggy Pig”, and parade them around in a “Pet Parade (I can’t wait to stay and watch this!). It’s been a good week.

I ended the Pet Week lunches with a dog themed lunch.

I made a dog shaped PB&J “puzzle” (he can take out the dog and put him back in, if he felt so inclined). I also packed colby jack cheese, grapes, a few pretzel nuggets, and one homemade dark red velvet cookie.

Woof.

Happy Valentine’s Day VPK School Lunch

And alas, tomorrow is my Bigs’ Valentine’s Day party in school, and thus, his last Valentine’s Day lunch.

So, here it is:

I made a gold PB&J heart. I also packed whole wheat pretzel nuggets, a mandarin orange, blueberries, strawberries, and one homemade red velvet cookie.

I’ll be posting some yummy dessert recipes soon, too (a few repeats), two of which are both gluten and dairy free!

Happy Friday,

Kristin

Here is tomorrow’s lunch for my Bigs:

I made three little pancake PB&J (I used peach jelly this time). My boys love these little sandwiches. I also packed a few pretzel nuggets, a mandarin orange, blueberries, one heart shaped strawberry, one homemade dark red velvet cookie (recipe still forthcoming #imbusy), and two little conversation hearts, about which I know my buddy will flip. I also used a little “Bee Mine” bee ring and a heart pick as decoration.

Here is my Smalls lunch:

I also packed three little pancake sandwiches, a mandarin orange, a few pretzel nuggets, one dark red velvet cookie, and one conversation heart. Per his request, I also added vanilla yogurt (with a few sprinkles), and applesauce. He does not get decorations yet because he eats them. #iknowthisfromexperience

Have a great Thursday!
