A couple of years ago, I made a Roald Dahl's Birthday menu for dinner. I think I will likely make Boiled Slobbages again for dinner this year, because they are delicious. (They are spaetzle with a fun name. Win) While The Girl and I have read many Dahl books, The Boy is new to the wonder... this past weekend, we spend two days reading Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. About 2 hours reading aloud per day, and we finished it. We are now working on James & the Giant Peach... so their lunches are mostly based on these two books.
So, I spent some extra time on lunches today. And there are some extra treats in them. Roald Dahl was always one for treats.
|Yogurt & sprinkles: 20g|
|Yes, I picked out the rainbow colors to use in my pudding and left the boring white ones behind for another time.|
I made a Giant Peach sandwich on a sandwich thin (I got a peach cookie cutter!), spread with Biscoff and peach preserves.
|Sandwich: 33g, apple slices with white yogurt coating and sprinkles: 8g, graham crackers: 6g, "Wonka" mini bar: 5g, applesauce: 15g, Rainbow Tapioca Pudding: 20g|
I covered the entire Easylunchbox container with Glad Press-n-seal in hopes of keeping the liquidy compartments from leaking. I hope find your own ways of celebrating Roald Dahl's birthday! What's your favorite Roald Dahl book?
