Lunches: 9.7.17

We are leaving for a vacation tomorrow (more on that, I hope, while we are gone!) - so the food is low in the house on purpose...

Using things in the fridge up is a fun way to pack lunches...
Egg: 0g, apple slices: 10g, yogurt: 9g, muffins: 16g (4 g each).  Snack: 28g


The Boy has Breakfast for lunch again.  He has apple slices, a hard boiled egg, yogurt, and muffins - and a cereal bar for snack.

The Girl wanted more than a hard boiled egg, so I made her a quick egg salad sandwich on homemade bread, apple slices, and Inner Peas.  She also has an audition after school for the school play, so I included a snack of a cereal bar for her, too.

Operation Clean Out the Fridge is fun...

Lunches: 9.6.17

I made a fresh loaf of bread last night from this King Arthur Flour recipe (baked it in my oven, not bread machine, replaced some all-purpose flour with white whole wheat), so we have nice sandwiches for lunches today.
Sandwich: 40g, apples: 10g, Inner Peas: 8g


The Boy has a ham and cheese sandwich with hummus, along with apple slices, and Inner Peas.  His snack is a cereal bar.

The Girl has a ham and cheese sandwich with mayo, along with apple slices, and Inner Peas.

Lunches: 9.5.17

Breakfast for lunches again today - turns out, The Boy has lunch at 10:20 in the morning - so he likes to have something breakfasty for it sometimes.  That's a mighty early lunch, if you ask me... (says the girl who works sometimes from 6-2 and eats lunch at 9 AM... and I have full on lunch, lol)

Anyhow...
Egg: 0g, apple slices: 10g, Bubble & Squeak: 5g, yogurt: 9g, muffins: 12g (4g each), and snack: 28g


The Boy has a hard boiled egg, apple slices, my version of a Bubble & Squeak patty (look for the recipe in an upcoming KidsVT!  Essentially, a veggie and bacon patty), muffins, and a yogurt.  He also has a cereal bar for snack.

The Girl has a hard boiled egg, apple slices, Bubble & Squeak, muffins, and a yogurt.

Lunch: 8.30.17

The Girl saved her lunch from yesterday, because they had a free Freshman BBQ, but The Boy has a fresh lunch for today.
Sandwich: 35g, string cheese: 1g, apple slices: 10g, Inner Peas: 8g

He has a sandwich on homemade bread, with hummus, ham, and spinach, along with a string cheese, apple slices, and Inner Peas.

Today is the first day where all of the students are in each school, instead of just first years... so I am looking forward to hearing how it went!!

And so it begins... First Day of school 2017: 8.29.17

We had many adventures over the summer, and I packed lunch for most of them... but I just took the summer off from blogging here.  I continue to write the Mealtime column for KidsVT - so be sure to check that out!

But, here we go... The Girl is entering high school, and The Boy is starting in Middle school!  Unbelievable!  They both have half days today, because they are both in transition years, and we are not entirely sure that they need lunches, but better safe than sorry!

The biggest change that has happened around here this summer is that The Boy is now on an insulin pump!  This will help his independence a lot - lessening trips to the nurse for insulin injections, he can just do it himself by plugging numbers into his pump.  Very cool.  (The nurse, of course, is still there for assistance, so he's not all on his own yet)

For this first (half) day of school, I made some fresh pain de mie (using this recipe for Bee Keeper's Pain de Mie from King Arthur Flour - lovely, but I will modify with some whole wheat flour next time).

Sandwich: 40g, cheese: 1g, apple slices: 10g, sesame sticks: 14g

The Boy has a sandwich on pain de mie with hummus, spinach, and ham, along with a string cheese, apple slices, and sesame sticks.

The Girl has a sandwich on pain de mie with mayo, spinach, and ham, along with a string cheese, cherries, and sesame sticks.

And... if we have packed preemptively, they can eat these when they get home.
