Rollups, granola bars and apple sauce

Snack today was nuts and a prune along side of some cantaloupe.
For lunch today the boys had granola bar and apple sauce in the top container and fruit leather, a cream cheese and jelly roll up and broccoli in the bottom container. I really wanted to fill in the gaps but the boys have not been eating as much so I resisted.

Well you may have noticed.... no laptop lunchboxes today. :( I realized that the boxes did not fit in their lunch boxes unless we left out the drinks so we need bigger lunchboxes or smaller drink containers. Also, I think the boys need some practice in opening them. They are not easy to open. I'm hoping that this is just because they are new??

Pasta and pineapple

Snack today was apple and cheese (E) and apple and quesildillas (S).
Lunch was macaroni and cheese in the thermos, pineapple, jello and a piece of fruit leather. Not too exciting but I AM excited because I got my (ok the boys...) laptop lunchboxes in the mail today! Woo Hoo! I was going to give the boxes to the boys for Christmas but then I realized - who and I kidding? They are REALLY for me, not them! So it was Christmas for me today! Off to wash and put name labels on everything so I can use them tomorrow. :)

Mice Sandwich

Rest assured that the boys DID eat lunch yesterday even though I have no pictures. The Grandparents were still taking care of the boys and I'm sure made a great lunch though they didn't want to take pictures - go figure? Today for snack the boys had apples and crackers with peanut butter (S) or cream cheese (E).
I had seen a sandwich shaped like a mouse and thought it was a great idea. When I made it this morning I thought "hmm... that doesn't look much like a mouse..." I just looked back at the example and realized I left off the wiskers and the ears! I'll try again some other time... Along with the mouse sandwich, the boys had a granola bar a mallowmar cookie (couldn't resist, my grandparents used to buy these for me and my brothers) and some cantaloupe. The boys wolfed this food down in order to get on line to go outside more quickly. Apparently, there has been a lot of competition to get to the swings first...
A and I joined the boys at lunch today again. A had two mini sandwiches, mallowmar cookies, rice crackers and cantaloupe.
I had the last of my red pepper tomato soup, (thank you Amy for explaining how to make a link!!!) quesaldillas, cantaloupe and a chocolate bar. Yum!
