Today we find out if surgery is a go or not. My anxiety is so high that I am considering asking the Dr. for something if they are delaying it again.
Lunch is part of an apple from our CSA, tomatoes from the CSA, string cheese, GMO free and organic tortilla chips, and a star shaped meat sandwich.

I have GMO free tortilla chips with flax seeds, oranges, grilled cheese fish (3), a cheese stick, and some M&M's.
Monday we hope to get confirmation on Shirley's open heart surgery for Tuesday. The only thing that held her back was the slightly stuffy nose and the single green booger. Praying it is this week. It is hard to work out 2 weeks care for 5 other kids with no missed school.

We are participating in the 100 Days of Real Food -14 weeks of mini-pledges. We are in week 5 and yes, I am still using highly processed bread. Right now I just don't have the energy to make my own. With Shirley's upcoming surgery and all that stress, it just isn't happening. I know I could pick a better bread. I honestly can't fit that into our budget since we go through 5-7 loaves of bread a week. sandwiches for everyone takes a whole loaf. Please check out the Our Life tab for more about what is going on.
For lunch we have crackers, mandarin oranges, cheese stick, pepper slices, and a sandwich train.

Clark requested the airplane cutter. Sadly, the cheese we purchased this week tends to crumble. So this sandwich cutter did not work the best.
I used something larger for the other 2 lunches. Today we have popcorn, apple slices, ham and cheese penguins, a Babybel cheese, and orange slices.
The girls and I had soup and rice for lunch. I made chicken and vegetable soup.
I used a "soup starter" I had made last time we had chicken. It chicken stock with chicken. To it I added some mixed vegetables, canned diced tomatoes, and cubed potatoes. I cooked rice in my rice cooker and then used a mold to shape it into bears. The eyes and noses are made from nori.

I am always on the look out for new lunch containers or snack containers for the boys. I happened to find thee two at Walmart and couldn't resist.
Karl picked the snack today. I think it is an odd combination, but... Karl was proud of himself. He chose popcorn that Aunt Agnes picked up and pepperoni.
For lunch we have ham and cheese tortillas, apples, Multi grain corn chips, a cheese stick, and pepper slices.
