6/13/13 - My baby is now officially a Kindergartener! So to commemorate Z's very last day of preschool ever, I made a Kindergarten lunch - Kindergarten literally means "child garden.
|Organic spinach, sugar snap peas, strawberries, and raspberries (with Enjoy Life chocolate chunks;) |
GF PBJ sandwiches, dairy-free "cheddar," white cheddar
To continue the garden theme (without having to actually make a ton more "children,") I stuck some flower stem picks in strawberries.
As a special treat, I stuck Enjoy Life (top 8 allergen-free and gluten-free) Chocolate Chunks into raspberries. They look kind of flowery, right?
large flower veggie cutter on gluten-free bread and some dairy-free "cheddar," and then a circle cutter on some white cheddar (dairy) for the faces. I used the spinach leaves tucked behind to help hold the flowers and half-pod "leaves" in place, and a cloth napkin (from Red Poppy Crafts on etsy) carefully placed on top before closing the lid on the EasyLunchbox.
For the eyes and mouth, I used India Tree Nature's Colors food colors (blue plus yellow.)

Today, my precious little girl goes off to public school for the first time. My strong, vulnerable, quirky, clever, bizarre, sensitive princess goes off into a whole new world. A place where teachers don't respond to my emails the same day (if at all,) I don't get a run-down of any issues that popped up each afternoon when I pick her up, I don't know any of the kids (and rarely get to meet any of the other parents,) and other than conferences in the Fall and Spring, I will have no clue how things are going.
