Puzzle pieces

Ok I have to admit, I pretty much want to cut everything with this sandwich cutter! I think it's so cute! :)

He has: Puzzle pieces cheese sandwich, mango and raspberries, Angry Bird cheese crackers with raisins.

Getting back into the swing of things is rough :( When I ask him what he wants for lunch he starts naming off all the good stuff my mom has made for him (or taken him out for!) on his time off from school... and that stuff can't go in a lunchbox! So I'm trying to come up with more ideas... ugh.

we're back!

After 2 weeks of no lunches, we're back with a rather boring lunch *sigh*

We have: half of a cheese sandwich, fresh mango and raspberries, wheat thins and a brownie bite (I need those outta my house!)

He says he wants a hot lunch Thursday, but I'll have to see what it is... he's kinda finicky.

Two weeks :(

My sons school has half days this week, then off next week, then three more half days... which means NO LUNCHES!

Aaaaahhhhh!! What am I going to do?!?

I'm going to take this opportunity to try some new lunch ideas, I think. If he tries them at home with Nana, maybe he'll like new things :)

Wish me luck!

Pancake sandwiches :)

I packed this lunch at bed time and gave him exactly what he asked for. Spme will say I'm catering to my 5 year old... which is fine :) I see it as avoiding a major meltdown. Its letting him won a battle so that I can win the war. I mean, I'm going to pack him a lunch anyway, might as well be something he'd like! :)

He has: mini pancake sandwiches with berry cream cheese and craisins, mango and blueberries, and ritz crackers.

Oops! A day late.

This is the kind of crazy week we've had... I wrote this post in my head and never sat down to publish it LOL

I made pasta salad for little dude and he told me he was tired of it *sigh* so we improvised at the last minute. He still wanted the olives and garlic knot!

He has: a hard boiled egg and olives (whatever), a garlic knot, dried mango and raspberries with chocolate chips.

Now my job will be to find his next "go to" lunch :)

Well, the boy said he wants to try a hot lunch tomorrow... but I packed a lunch just in case. He's a big time mind changer LOL

So, if he changes his mind he'll have this tomorrow. If not he'll get it Wednesday :)

He has: Dino cheese sandwiches with stripes (veggie/fruit strips), mango and black berries, veggie/fruit strips and marshmallows.

Lazy weekend equals lazy lunch

Yeah... we had a lazy weekend :) So when it came to lunch for Monday I just kinda "whatever" it. *sigh*

We have: a Hawaiian roll cheese and honey ham sandwich (he tried honey ham this weekend and declared it his favorite... we'll see), goldfish and cheese crackers with a few raisins thrown in, raspberries with a few chocolate chips, and marshmallows.

Breakfast :)

So my son has been asking for breakfast for dinner all week... so I knew this was coming! Breakfast for lunch, again :)

He has: Mini pancakes, a hard boiled egg, strawberries and blueberries, wheat thin crackers.

I wanted to share his "go to" breakfast this week, it's super quick and easy! He has been eating egg sandwiches - I toast a whole wheat bagel thin and make him an egg. We have one if those tiny pans, so I just crack an egg in it, break the yolk, then cook and flip! I add some cheese then slide it onto the bagel thin. It's one of MY favorite breakfasts too. We can change it up by adding crumbled sausage or broccoli to the egg. :)
