Lunches: 6.14.17

And here we are on the second to last day of school... and my mighty stack of Easylunchboxes from the beginning of the year has dwindled down to... 2.  Yes, 2.  I don't know what the kids have done with all of them.  I wouldn't be surprised if we find some sort of spontaneous society formed from Easylunchboxes in The Girl's locker when we clean it out (though she swears she doesn't have any in there)...

So, when The Boy forgot his Easylunchbox at school yesterday, it was time to dig into my pile of other containers for his lunch.
Sandwich: 40g, apple slices: 8g, pb pretzels: 5g


He has a peanut butter and honey sandwich in one container, apple slices in another, and peanut butter pretzels in another.  These had better come home.  Along with the Easylunchbox that I know is there.

The Girl brought home her Easylunchbox, so she gets one for lunch, with peanut noodles made with linguine, zucchini noodles, and carrot noodles.

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.

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.

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.
Sandwich: 35g, apple slices: 10g, raisins: 16g

The Boy has a hummus and turkey sandwich with greens, along with apple slices, and raisins.
