Both girls got organic corn chip dippers, Sabra Guacamole, cucumber flowers, and strawberries.
|Ham and Pink Dip pinwheel rejects, corn chips, guacamole; organic carrots, cucumber, green beans, and strawberries|
I stuck the pinwheel rejects onto a star skewer to help keep them together, and hopefully make them seem more exciting. (Didn't work. The garlic was too strong. But she tried and ate one at least!)
I also had some Sabra Guacamole that needed to be used right away, since I'd put some in the lunches for the two teachers I had packed lunches for that morning too. So when I finished with theirs, I packed the rest into Mini Dippers for the rest of us. Which meant needing to add dippables!
For "dippables," I included the organic corn chips, of course, and tried the girls out on some cucumber flowers that were left over from putting carrot flowers into the cucumber coins for the teachers. Z also got some of the leftover carrot coins (for making the flowers for the teachers' cucumbers... the Circle of Bento Life!) Baby wasn't ready for raw carrots yet, or raw green beans, so she didn't get any of either.

|GF cheese crackers, guacamole, freeze-dried oranges, corn chips; organic cucumber, strawberries, and blackberries|
Baby also got some freeze dried orange slices from Trader Joe's. So yummy! Almost like candy! Z doesn't like any freeze-dried fruits, although I keep trying. So none for her. I also gave E some blackberries, since Big Sis was in an "I don't like blackberries" phase that week. Pretty much whatever berry she had been begging for is no longer acceptable once I actually buy some.
Not the most balanced lunch ever, but she ate it. Well, except the cucumbers. Neither girl really ate their cucumbers. Punks.
