For Monday, we had a Fizzy Fun activity in the morning, then my 20-week OB appointment in the afternoon, so I packed us lunches in our EasyLunchBoxes to eat in between.
|Top (her lunch): see photo below|
Bottom (my lunch): PBJ, ginger cookies, cheese scraps,
apples w/PB, broccoli w/Ranch
|Her lunch: PBHoney "lunchosaurus," pistachios, broccoli (dino tree,) beans and carrots,|
string cheese nibblets "dino eggs" and Colby Jack-i-raptors, apples
The green beans are from our garden (which is why there are so few! We've only seen, like, maybe 12 beans this year.) I had a few carrot flowers left over from the previous week, and tossed in a broccoli floret because they look like mini-trees. And she likes broccoli.
I used some leftover string cheese nibblets as "dinosaur eggs" to go with the two Colby-Jack cheese velociraptors. (I got the mini-dino cutter set from a kitchen store at a local outlet mall.)
We were low on fruits, so pretty much my only option was an apple, which she hasn't been eating lately. I sloshed it in some apple juice to prevent browning and put some in anyway.
For Thursday we had our MOMS Club chapter's annual Little Athletes in the morning, then swim class, then the last day of Little Gym Summer camp. So an eatable-in-the-car lunch was required.
|Top (my lunch): onion bagel w/cream cheese, cheese scraps,|
broccoli w/Ranch (underneath,) apples w/PB
Bottom: see below
|Her lunch: PBHosaurus, green beans, cheese balls, |
The green beans were left over from Monday's lunch (top of post) and I added some grocery store ones to fill it out. And I got a huge (seriously. HUGE) tub of cheese ball puffs from Target a while ago, since I love love love Planter's cheese balls, even though I can no longer find them anywhere. These ones are crap. But have to get rid of them somehow. And she likes them. So I thought it would be a nice treat to add in. Plus they filled up the space.
I used another dino from my mini cutter set for the Colby Jack cheese, and again made two. And I put in blueberries despite her assurances that she would not eat them. The last of the apples were for me! I LOVE apples and PB. So she got the only other fruit we had.
After gym camp, I usually offer her the leftovers from her lunch, but this time there weren't really any! (just a few half-eaten green beans.) So she took half of my bagel and the cheese scraps, which I hadn't gotten around to eating yet.
She fell asleep on the drive home, bagel in hand.
I ate the rest of the bagel, after prying it away and wiping off the cream cheese stuck to her other hand!
