Broken snack box. :(

Snack today was graham crackers with strawberry creme cheese and some orange segments with grapes. I started out the school year with 5 boxes this size. It's a great size for the kids snack. The first three broke with in a month and a half. They were from the Disney store. You can see a photo of them below.
I then started using the red and blue ones like above and they had lasted for about four months before the blue one broke this week. I got the blue and the red ones from Ichiban Kan back when they offered things online. I'm SO SO bummed that they no longer offer that service as I live QUITE far from any of their stores... or any stores at all that carry bento stuff for that matter.... For now we are just using a strap to hold it shut but we have lost two straps already. Check out my homemade strap... Not pretty but functional. :)

Lunch today is some pita sandwiches, pear, carrots and little cookies.

Pesto Pasta with Broccoli

S requested a cereal bar for snack today. I added some orange segments too. Do you like my butterfly shaped silicone thing? I got it at the dollar section of Target. 6 cups for $1 - I could not resist. There was only this ONE pack left. I think it was meant to be... Not that the boys noticed or even particularly cared when I pointed it out. I'm well aware that I bought them for myself. :)
Lunch today was pasta with pesto and broccoli, apples with peanutbutter to dip and a chocolte santa. These boys LOVE pesto. We probably have only enough for one more meal from your freezer stash. We'll have to grow more basil next year...

Pizza take....

Snack today was chips, carrots and cheese sticks with dressing to dip (oh and a lone piece of cauliflower)
I never realized how often my kids eat pizza until I started this blog.... Lunch today was leftover pizza, broccoli, apple crisp and the green container has tomato sauce for dipping.
