Cookie Cutter Sandwich

Snak today was apple and cheese.
Lunch was orange slicis, veggie bootie, a duck cutout creme cheese and jelly sandwich, a granola bar and veggies with humus to dip. I'd love to make these cookie cutter sandwiches more often. They are cute and so easy. However, I rarely seem to catch the day that we finish one loaf of bread and pull out another from the freezer/grocery store. And also we are pretty boring and usually use the same brand of bread...
A and I joined the boys for lunch today. Above is my lunch of PB&J, banana, veggies and humus.
And here is A'' lunch of veggie bootie, bananas, pasta and chicken with parmesan to sprinkle in the orange container.

Does anyone know a good way to pack banana in lunch boxes? S and E always complained that they get to "old looking and smelly" so I stopped packing bananas for them. The two lunches above were packed just an hour and a half before we ate them and we still had that problem somewhat. Our whole lunches smelled like banana!

Pasta in the thermos

Snack today was humus and carrots.
Lunch was pasta with tomato sauce in the thermos, pineapple chinks, peanuts, chocolate cookie and the little orange guy has parmesean cheese to sprinkle on the pasta. In the interest of time I really should have just put the cheese on the pasta before closing the thermos but it's way more fun to sprinkle it on themselves, they say! Ok... and I can't resist the cute little orange guy... When the opening is closed he has his eyes closed and when you open it, his eyes are open. How cute is that?

English muffin pizzas

E's snack on top with orange sand cheese sticks. S's snack on the bottom with oranges and peanuts.
Lunch today was English muffin pizza's, carrots, pudding and pears. They ate all but the carrots which the said were packed in too hard to get out... or maybe that was just an excuse not to eat their veggies?

Weekend leftovers

Snack today was some pear slices and some leftover cheese quesadillas.
Lunch was leftover pizza and chicken strips, BBQ sauce for dipping, raw veggies, apple and orange slices and very chocolaty pudding. Yum! And we used up a lot of leftovers! Note: when you make chocolate pudding with dark cocoa is comes out almost black! Very yummy though!

Muffin Tin Monday - The letter A

Today's Muffin Tin Monday theme is "learning is fun!" I made this muffin tin snack all about the letter A. Upper and lower case "A" from string cheese along with some Apples and Avocados. I realized while talking about the muffin tin with A and his buddy who is over for a play date that we pronounce avocado as if it started with an "o" so probably not the best food choice to illustrate the "a" sound... Oh well, the boys liked eating it and making other letters with the cheese.
