Lunches: 4.19.17

This week, the lunches are not the most inspired... The Girl has her play Thursday and Friday, and in the meantime, we are just trying to get through the dreaded "Hell Week," where she has rehearsal until 7 PM each night, and then comes home and falls flat asleep...

Oh, theater.  How we love you.
Sandwich: 40g, applesauce:15g, peanuts:2g


So, today, The Boy has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch, with applesauce, and some peanuts.  Doubling down on the peanuts.  I promise, I won't feed them peanuts for dinner.

The Girl has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, pear slices, and peanuts.  I'll probably drop a smoothie by at her rehearsal for dinner.  That's what she had yesterday and she loved it.

Happy Wednesday!

Lunches: 4.4.17

Happy Tuesday!

I have homemade bread, but it didn't turn out great (I haven't been feeling well and just popped the whole thing to bake in the bread machine, which is not as forgiving as bread dough you shape yourself...) - it is good for sandwiches, but not pretty (it was a sunken loaf)...

So, forgive the slightly weird looking sandwiches.

I don't do cute lunches so often now that the kids are older (although, ironically, The Girl has totally gotten into Japanese culture and all things kawaii [that's cute] - maybe she can make herself a kawaii bento sometimes. lol) - But, for Valentine's Day, I at least pulled out a cookie cutter.
