Lunches: 1.11.17

The problem with a loaf of homemade bread in the bread machine is that it doesn't last long!  I should have made more last night, and I did not, so today, the kids have rather snacky lunches.
Crackers: 18g, pepperoni: 1g, cheese: 1g, apple slices: 8g, yogurt: 9g


The Boy has crackers, pepperoni, and cheese, along with apple slices, and a yogurt.  His snack is an applesauce (not pictured, 14g)

Lunches: 1.10.17

I was out of bread yesterday, so I threw some King Arthur Flour Oatmeal sandwich bread in the bread machine overnight.  I don't normally bake in the bread machine, only using it to mix, but it is really nice to wake up to the scent of fresh bread wafting through the air.  It is a pleasant alarm clock.

For lunches, we kept it simple.
Sandwich: 45g, melon: 5g, raisins: 8g

The Boy has some melon,  raisins, and a sandwich on homemade bread with peanut butter and jelly.  His snack is seaweed snacks (no picture, 1g)

The Girl has an orange, raisins, and a peanut butter and jelly on homemade bread.

Lunches: 1.6.17

It's Friday, and I didn't want to open the package of lunch meat I have before the weekend (because I don't want it to possibly go bad through not using it over the weekend) - so, the kids have super simple lunches.

The Boy has a peanut butter and jelly on a multigrain sourdough bread, along with raisins, and apple slices.  His snack is a trail mix (not pictured, 24g).

Lunches: 1.5.17

Sickness is making it's way through the house - almost out now - but, it called for comfort food.  I made a variation on Pioneer Woman's Macaroni and cheese - but I used a mixture of caramelized onion cheddar, fontina, and Monterey Jack cheese, and I topped with fried onion strings (like you'd put on a green bean casserole), and omitted the egg,

I made a HUGE batch, so everyone has leftovers for lunch.

Mac & Cheese: 60g (he may not eat all of it), raisins: 12g, trail mix: 24g

The Boy has mac & cheese, raisins, and trail mix.  His snack is cheese crackers (not pictured, 16g).
