Mice are Nice... in Salads!

GF Sheffa Zesty Snack Mix, GF cornbread muffin, organic salad (red lettuce, cabbage, spinach, radicchio,
strawberries, cauliflower, carrots, Chioggia beet, purple broccoli, salted pumpkin seeds, dressing)
Tuesday, 5/21/13 - Random lunch for Mama! When I cut shapes out of beets and carrots, and the outer part stays intact, I save them for silhouette shapes! (The imperfect ones get chopped up and tossed into my salad mix!)

These were made with my flower veggie cutter and a fancy mouse veggie cutter. These intricate fancy veggie cutters are no longer being made apparently. *sigh*

Justin's Dark Chocolate PB Cup, coconut chips, Smooth Operator PB, organic apples, organic salad (spinach,
lettuce, carrots, baby tomatoes, purple broccoli, sunflower and chia seeds, hemp hearts, raisins, dressing)
Monday, 6/10/13 - Just a regular school day, the final week of school. Lunch to eat in the car outside of a nearby Starbucks while Baby napped during Z's afternoon preschool class. Teehee.

Organic pluot and golden plum, leftover GF French Toast casserole, organic salad (red lettuce,
cabbage, kale, carrots, spinach, sunflower and chia seeds, raisins, hemp hearts, raspberry vinaigrette) 
Monday, 8/5/13 - Z had VBS camp in the morning, and a Little Gym camp in the afternoon, so I packed lunches for everyone to eat in between. Here's mine.

I had some leftover Heels-and-Crusts Bread Scrap French Toast Casserole that the girls had rejected. I'm working on making an egg and dairy-free version. This one was either too banana-y or too soggy. Or both.
