Egg salad sandwich

I apologize for the picture. I cannot figure out what happened to my memory card, so I have been using my phone to take pictures.

For lunch we have pasta salad (tri colored pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, and greek dressing), baby dill pickles, and an egg salad sandwich. I made this the night before, so I toasted the bread. The stamp says "Good Morning". I know it is not morning, but it was that or the "princess" one. I am not thinking they would enjoy that.

Corned beef hash and green beans

I was bored and wanted to see if I could shape corned beef hash. I tried packing an egg mold super tight and it did not work. Next I tried packing it into a cookie cutter. The first one came out pretty well but the second, not so much.

Lunch was corned beef hash, green beans, and I did add a cookie for desert later.

Fish Sandwiches

Today's lunch consists of nitrate free salami and turkey on a food pick, strawberries, cheese, and fish shaped peanut butter sandwiches. I used my fish rice mold to make the sandwiches.

This week is the last full week of school for Tyke. Next week he has class Tuesday and Thursday. Clark goes for another 2 weeks. I am very excited for them both to be entering kindergarten next year. I met Clark's teacher at the IEP for next year and she seems nice and willing to work as a team with the parents. Yeah!

I hope to be doing better on lunches from now on. We will have several summer trips as well as going to the park. I said I would update on what is going on (why I have been in and out so much) and I have decided to finally share. Please check HERE.

Smile sandwich

Lunch in our awesome Easy Lunchboxes today!

I have some homemade coleslaw, strawberry applesauce, and a toasted turkey sandwich. I used a toast stamp that I found at The Dollar Tree for the design on the toast. I also added a pickle for the minions who like those.

The minions have really been interested in toast recently. They request it for almost every meal and snack. So I figured I would incorporate it into lunch for them.

Tyke's field trip lunch.

I know I said I would explain some things last Friday and I didn't. I am sorry. There have been several things going on in our household and it has taken some time to adjust and readjust. Once things have resettled again I will post something in Silly Minions.

Tyke's class is going on a field trip today and they needed a disposable lunch. Sadly, I have no pictures. Tyke's preschool class does not allow siblings on 98% of the field trips (unlike Clark's class). So we are never able to accompany Tyke on any of them.

I opted to use a strawberry container. We have no paper bags and I had no desire to use 3 or 4 plastic bags anyway. I did line the bottom with some plastic wrap. I know melon sometimes sweats a bit.

I then added my semi frozen yogurt tube. These are considered a huge treat in our house. Sometimes I freeze them and give them to the kids as popsicles in the summer. I have to be careful with dairy and warm days though. Tyke has acid reflux and that makes his belly a little picky.

Next I added the barn, chick, and cow sandwiches. Hmm.... This is not as full as I like it. I know he may not eat all of this, but I really do not like things moving about in his container.

So I added some cheese and a desert item (left over from his school birthday treat),

Sandwiches back one.... and that still is not quite doing it for me. I know I waste food... Then again, he could be having a day where he is super hungry. Those happen. I have seen him eat 3 whole sandwiches plus other lunch items in one sitting.

Instead of a water bottle I decide to give him one of The Elder's drinks. :-) It fits perfect in there. Shh... The Elder never has to know....

Repack the cheese and sandwiches and.... PERFECT!

The top of the container.

I am not mean enough to send an ugly looking top. So I printed up a picture that goes with his lunch. The farm has nothing to do with his field trip. The only reason the farm was picked was because that was the first set of cookie cutters my hands landed on.

I used 2 paper strips to cover up his name... because I could.

Picture from the side... notice nothing moves..

The other side. Good! Everything is secure!!!!

Here is Tyke holding his lunch. Aww, he's so handsome!

Lunch today consists of leftover BBQ ribs (cooked low and slow on the grill!), coleslaw, and 2 Girl Souut cookies.

I was trying to make it look like a fun lunch to eat so I added the dinosaurs. Then I decided it needed some more color so I added the skeleton top.

Chicken Kabob Leftover

You know dinner was great when it is requested that some be saved for lunch the next day. We actually had problems keeping the minions away from the chicken.

Lunch consists of a grilled chicken kabob (stick taken out), pan fried potatoes, mixed vegetables, and 2 Girl Scout cookies.

Today's lunch is better than they have been. I have a tuna croissant, thin sliced celery sticks, string cheese, crushed pineapple, and 2 Girl Scout cookies. I added a food pick in hoped of making the lunch a bit more interesting.

Another Meh Lunch

Tomorrow or Friday I promise I will post on what is going on over in Silly Minions. Life has been quite hectic and there has been some health concerns. 

Lunch was another super quick, Mama just isn't feeling to well lunch. Tyke told me what he wanted for lunch today... I cannot say I am a fan of them eating chips, but I decided the pears would cancel it out. Especially since they normally eat all the pears first.

We have chips, cheese, peanut butter tortillas, and pears.

Tyke told me he wanted to put peanut butter on the tortillas and roll them, so I let him. Sadly I did not think to take pictures.

The Colonel had the same thing only sliced thinner and her tortilla sliced up.
