Cupcake Lasagna

I decided to try something new today. I decided to pack lunch for everyone at the same time. Normally I pack The Elder's at night and the minions' during the day. I get Clark on the bus and have one hour to feed Tyke, Pork, and Colonel Sanders and then walk Tyke to school. Clark eats a family style lunch at school as part of the program he is in. So I get Clark on the bus, find something to amuse the minions (craft, drawing, toys, or tv) and then make lunch and feed them.

 Today I decided to be brave and give the minions more than one food pick. I pray they do not get to distracted at lunch.

We will start with the front today. I have a cupcake lasagna with a tomato flower. Above that we have 2 slices of rolled nitrate free turkey and squares of cheddar cheese.

To the left I have homemade cherry yogurt (Yes, in a cut dixie cup) and a pickle boat with a piece of turkey and 2 passengers.
 This is The Elder's lunch. He too has cupcake lasagna. It consists of wonton wrappers, ricotta cheese, ground beef, tomato puree, spinach, spices, and mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

To the left is a sugar free whole wheat banana muffin with a packet of frosting. Yes, I know frosting kinda defeats the sugar free purpose, but it's The Elder. He thinks he needs it. Therefore, he gets his sugar. Below that is frozen mixed veggies.

Want to see the minions?

Colonel Sanders is like her brother Clark. She feels sleep is for the weak. So she is sitting on the floor below me playing with Pork Chop's dinosaur.

Pork Chop fell asleep on the couch. Poor little man is still ill. He sounds like a frog and wakes up every so often to cry because he is coughing so much. I have done all I can for him, so I let him sleep on the couch to give him a little comfort. Once I go to bed I  take him with me.

I know, it is rare to see Clark. Clark is the healthiest of the bunch. I am not quite sure what happened to his pillow case.

Sorry, there is no picture of Tyke. The poor camera decided that it needed the battery charged.

Countdown: 4


  1. The lasagna cupcakes are adorable! Hopefully your little guy is feeling better soon :)

  2. Thank you! I hope they do too! Night time seems to be the worst. During the day they are just hyper and coughing. Even when they have a fever they are still full of energy.

    I love making the lasagna cupcakes because they are not only excellent for portioning out, but also they are even better as leftovers! These were actually 2 days old and tasted better than the first day.

  3. I love your lunches! I have to try these lasagna cupcakes! They look delicious and I love having left overs! I also loved the tomato flowers and the pickle boat ~ so cute! Hope everyone is feeling better!!
