Lunch 1/29


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.

Lunches 1/15





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.

Lunch and snack 1/14



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.
