Come on Ride the Train!

Do you remember the Quad City DJ’s song? I could rap that all the way through with completely wrong lyrics, but it sure is a rad song. Brings me back. It’s probably a totally inappropriate song to connect to a kid lunch, but bruh, it’s classic.

Anywhooo, here is my kid’s train lunch for tomorrow (look at it and sing the song, like I am):

I made a train shaped PB&J sandwich and use some of the scraps for a track (they ate the rest). I also packed Goldfish crackers, a date, raspberries, a mandarin orange, a few green grapes, and one red velvet Oreo.

If you feel like dancing, well come on, it’s up to you

Happy Friday – Deli VPK School Lunch

I have a Public Service Announcement for you – crepes are not a successful lunch choice for your kids at school. My oldest loved them, but told me how messy they were. He struggled with the dipping. And the dripping. Of the syrup. And my youngest avoided his crepe all together. I’m not at all sure what he ate his peanut butter with (probably just his finger), but at least he got some protein. So save them for dessert. Or snacking.

Anywho.

Here’s what I made for today’s lunch:

It’s a turkey, cheddar, and mayo on wheat sandwich. I also packed strawberries, pineapple, pickles (my Bigs loves pickles), pretzel sticks (I still refuse to say “rods” – grody), and two Oreos.

Have a great weekend!

PS – after I pick my buddy up at school, we are officially on Spring Break! WoO hOo!!

Homemade Lunchables

For tomorrow’s lunch, I made a Lunchables (my inner grammar nerd feels the need forĀ “Lunchables” to be “Lunchable” in this case).

My kid has been asking for a Lunchable(s) for weeks now. I cut up colby jack cheese and ham (surrrrre, I could have cut the ham into squares, but I’d have ended up wasting some). I also packed Saltines, raisins, applesauce, a mandarin orange, and two red velvet Oreos.

Boo-ya.

I feel like I’d have said that back in the day when eating a Lunchable(s).
