Lunches: 3.25.15 - Waffle Day!

It's Swedish Waffle Day!

I've talked about the day previously, and I try to not miss a chance to celebrate such a fun food-based holiday.  I love a holiday started from a mispronunciation.  So, for Waffle Day, the kids have waffles in their lunches!

The also loved yesterday's salads, so I used the waffles as a vehicle for a little sandwich on top of salad..
Salad with sunflower seeds and ranch: 6g, blueberries: 5g, waffles and turkey: 16g
The Boy has salad with sunflower seeds, blueberries, and some ranch dressing (he didn't care for the vinaigrette), along with a couple whole grain waffles and some turkey.  His snack is a granola bar (not pictured, 26g).

The Girl has salad with sunflower seeds, honeyed goat cheese, and some homemade vinaigrette (which she loved), along with blueberries and a couple whole grain waffles and some turkey.  She also has a granola bar for snack (not pictured).

Family Lunches: 3.24.15

I pack lunches for myself and for The Hubby nearly every day, but don't always blog them.  I'm blogging today's to show you how I take a variation on the theme of the kids' lunches for my own lunch.  (The Hubby has the day off, so no lunch for him).

Salad & all the fixings: 12g, raisins: 15g, crackers: 12g
The Boy has a build-your-own-salad with a lovely mescalin mix, blueberries, sunflower seeds, cucumbers, and a little homemade vinaigrette (with a note on the mini dipper to "shake gently" - we'll see how that goes), along with some raisins, and some crackers.  His snack is a granola bar (not pictured, 26g).

The Girl has a build-your-own salad with the mescalin mix, blueberries, sunflower seeds, honeyed chevre (The Boy doesn't like goat cheese, so I left this off of his), bell peppers, and a small container of the vinaigrette, along with some crackers.

Lunches: 3.23.15

These lunches are brought to you by the fact that Friday was the first day of spring, but it is 8 F outside right now.  Maybe I can lure spring out with spring-like lunches.

Sandwich roll-ups: 35g, sesame sticks: 5g, strawberries: 6g. carrots: 3g, fruit cup in gel: 24g
The Boy has sandwich roll-ups with cocoa almond spread and just a couple sprinkles, along with strawberries, fruit cup in gelatin, sesame sticks, and carrots.  He has a cereal bar for snack (not pictured, 24g)

The Girl has sandwich roll-ups with cocoa almond spread and a few sprinkles, with strawberries, fruit cup in gelatin, sesame sticks, and carrots. 

I think later this week is supposed to finally be seasonably warm - before it plunges down to wintry temperatures again for the weekend.  Joy.

Lunches : 3.20.15


We had some fish tacos for dinner last night - frozen breaded tilapia, shredded cabbage mix,  avocados,  avocado salsa (store bought,  like a thin guacamole), and I added some chili dusted dried mango to mine. The Girl lived them and especially loved the fish, so we're trying a fish sandwich for her lunch.

She has a fish sandwich with avocado salsa and cheese, along with some leftover shredded cabbage that she can pop on her sandwich or eat on it's own.  She also has some freeze-dried raspberries, and a clementine.

Crackers & pepperoni: 15g, carrots & hummus: 6g, strawberry applesauce: 14g, grapes: 6g
The Boy did not love the tacos (though he did eat them - sans the avocado), so he opted out of leftovers for lunch.  He has some mini crackers, pepperoni, carrots and hummus, grapes, and strawberry applesauce.  His snack is a granola bar (not pictured, 24g).
