Halloween Lunch

Monday, October 31st, 2011
Pumpkin Ham and Cheese

I wanted today’s lunch to be extra spectacular but the boys really wanted a special breakfast so we made pumpkin shaped pancakes – which ended up sucking up some of my normal lunch making time (and creativity). So here we have it. The teeth idea was found by my Mother-in-Law and I thought they were […]

New Bento Wish List

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

I always wonder how on earth the bento boxes I see are so full of talent. I’m speaking of the tiny faces with nori cutouts for eyes, nose, EYELASHES, etc. I mean come on, how on earth do you have time for that? Well I just found some magical tools and I made myself quite […]

Weird Apple, Bagel Sandwich and Hummus Face

Weird Apple, Bagel Sandwich and More

We’ve got a bagel sandwich today that my kids would eat everyday if we had the goods on hand. This one is filled with lettuce, tomato, and ham. This sideways apple was a funny find, the core went completely sideways, turned a corner. The cherry tomatoes are from our backyard garden, and that previously mentioned […]

Halloween Monster Face Sandwiches

Big Tongue

Watch out this monster might get you. Or maybe this one. I should have saved this post for the Day of the Dead. The rest of these monster mash lunches are filled with all kinds of goodness. Look at that little monster in the background below. Now for the goods => Tiny apple from our […]

Pumpkin PB&J, Homemade Donuts and More

Pumpkin Lunch

Holy smokes this morning was exciting. The boys saw their lunches being put together and the pumpkin sandwich was, in particular, an excitement trigger! Look at that little grumpy morning pumpkin glare. The leftover bits of PB&J fit under the pumpkin. These plums were the best thing on earth (according to Simon and Gus) they […]

Preschool Visit = Lunch Box Sweetness

Monday, October 24th, 2011
Gus

I know many of you have seen this photo already because I posted it a while back. This is the lunch that went along with the post. I didn’t want to leave it out of the mix. These two peas in a pod are loving their lunches together. I get it, they are both pretty […]

Circle Sandwiches, Tiny Pear and more Fall Delights

Circle Sandwiches, Tiny Pear and more Fall Delights

As fall creeps in it always seems harder to fill lunches with fresh fruit, but it is actually just a transition. The plethora of fresh fruit in the summertime is what makes summertime so special. The fall fruits are just as much of a treat though. I mean look at this tiny pear and the […]

Fried Chicken, Pasta Salad and More

Little something about Gus…he has been asking for years to eat meat off the bone. I never knew what exactly he meant. He must have seen it in a cartoon somewhere along the way but try as I might I couldn’t figure it out, we tried T-Bone steak and that wasn’t it. For some reason […]

Hot Dog Bun Sandwich

Friday, October 14th, 2011
Pineapple, Edamame, and More

This one makes me hungry. I can really get down on a sandwich. Sometimes we have those pesky leftover hotdog buns after a bbq so the boys end up with hotdog bun sandwiches for a few days. There are many worse things than ham, lettuce and tomato on a hotdog bun. No sneaking lettuce into […]

Little Gus posed this morning for a photo with his lunch box. Good morning dinos. It has been awhile since we’ve seen you. Maybe since last school year? We’ve also got some homemade applesauce, fig cookies, little crunchy sticks from the bulk section at the GFS, of the garlic and poppyseed variety no less. Some […]
