Lunches for an Outing: 8.28.12

School is starting tomorrow, and I decided to take the kids on one final summer adventure (we will continue hiking into the fall - that's the plan, at least).

Today, we drove across the state to go to The Montshire Museum of Science and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science.  Our friend Lisa (from Explayration) came with us.

For lunch, Lisa and I had three mini sandwiches with Cabot bacon cheddar cheese - a car (made with this press), a butterfly (made with a press like this), and an acorn (made with this press) - carrots and cucumbers with ranch dressing in the container, watermelon (also cut with the acorn cutter), some Naturebox rice crackers, homemade Greek yogurt with an attempt at an apple shape made with frozen yogurt in a silicone tray  (which tasted good, but because I made the lunches the night before, the shape melted entirely before we ate them... I'll have to try that again with plopping the shape into the lunch in the morning), and a peanut butter & jelly cookie, all in our favorite, EasyLunchBoxes (which are currently sold out, but they will be back in stock by the end of September!)

The Boy had essentially the same thing as us, but with some NatureBox Bombay curry cashew mix instead of rice crackers, and only carrots, no cucumber.

The Girl had the same thing as The Boy, but with some tiny plums I found at the grocery store and a Naturebox dried fig instead of watermelon, which she isn't a fan of.

Summer has been amazing, but we are back to school tomorrow - I have a couple more giveaways up my sleeve... and many many lunches to come!!!

Pin It!
