Purple Kindergarten Lunch
|Bug Bites dark chocolate square, Funky Monkey Purple Funk banana chips, organic grapes and raspberries, |
GF Van's cheese and "everything" crackers, organic plain Greek yogurt w/honey and
dye-free purple jimmies, leftover roasted organic "rainbow potatoes (red, yellow, and purple)
I had a few grapes left, and a few raspberries that hadn't gone moldy, so I put them together on some purple dolphin and crab skewers that came from a pastel version of this set.
To add a little more fruit to her lunch, I decided to try Z out on the Funky Monkey Purple Funk freeze dried banana chips I'd gotten in one of my foodie boxes, but she didn't like them. *sigh* (Note: They will get soggy by lunch unless you store them in an airtight container. I packed these right before heading off to drive Z to her afternoon school, so they were only in there 30-minutes at most.) I wasn't a fan either. They taste kind of oily or something. Dunno. Something I didn't like about them...
Because she'd need a spoon for the yogurt and a fork for the potatoes, I sent a reusable spork. I love packing these! They fit in the large compartment of the EasyLunchbox, and Z thinks they're really fun!
The potatoes had been a big hit the night before at dinner, so I packed some in her lunch to see if she'd eat them cold too. Yuuuuup! I took red, yellow, and purple potatoes from the farm we get our CSA share at and roasted them with a little olive oil, nutritional yeast, sea salt, and rosemary from our garden. It was the purple potatoes that inspired me to go with a purple-y theme with this lunch! I stuck a purple bear pick in them, just for fun. And purple-ness.
Once I'd decided to go with a sort of purple theme, I had to choose the purple lid from the EasyLunchboxes Brights set! Purple cloth napkin from Red Poppy Crafts on etsy.
