Lunches: 5.2.16 - and a try at Facebook Live Lunch Packing!

I decided to try something fun last night and used the new Facebook Live feature to show you how I pack lunches.  It was definitely my first try at it - I need a new tripod, and a better way of showing the lunch while I'm packing - but it was fun.  Want to see?  Check it out on my Facebook Page!
Wrap: 30g, strawberries: 5g, apple slices: 8g, carrots: 2g


The Boy has a wrap with green tahini dip (from Trader Joe's), salami, cheese, and lettuce, along with strawberries, carrots, and apple slices.  His snack is a granola bar (not pictured, 16g).

The Girl has the same thing - not packed live. ;)

Lunches: 4.28.16

The kids are finally back in school after a nice vacation with my in-laws in Florida.

They got home late last night, so we didn't get to eat the dinner I got for us - so, they have leftovers in lunches!
Mandarin orange chicken: 10g, springroll: 18g, apple slices: 8g, carrots: 2g

The Boy has some leftover mandarin orange chicken, a spring roll, apple slices, carrots, and, yes... at his request, brought home from Florida, Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans.  Hope I didn't give him vomit flavored... His snack is a granola bar (not pictured, 15g)

The Girl has leftover mandarin orange chicken, a spring roll, apple slices, and carrots.

It is SO wonderful to have them home!  We missed them a lot.  Now, life can return to "normal" - whatever that is!

Lunches: 4.15.16

This is going to be the last lunch for a couple of weeks (unless we have an unexpected adventure) - the kids are on break next week, and then my in-laws are taking them to Florida the week after break (it was a mix-up in dates when booking tickets... The Hubby's Dad got the dates wrong.  Oh well...)

Sandwich: 40g, apple slices: 8g, strawberries: 4g, breakfast cookie: 15g

So, for this Friday before break, The Boy has a sandwich with turkey and cheese, along with apple slices, strawberries, and a breakfast cookie (from a school event yesterday, they had extra, so I snagged them for lunches!).  His snack is an applesauce (not pictured, 14g).

The Girl also has a sandwich with turkey and cheese, apple slices, strawberries, and a breakfast cookie.
