No lunches yesterday – G1 went on a field trip, and G2 and G3 were home with a stomach bug. Blerg. So, we have some sweet, angelic lunches for today in response to a day’s break. All three girls have Christmas Notes from Lunchbox Love today to brighten their days after a very long day yesterday. We’re not fans of stomach bugs.
G1′s lunch included tomato soup in her Thermos, and the rest of her lunch in her Totoro Bento Box. At left is the bottom, sealed compartment, and she has a Christmas angel flying with two hearts, all made out of tofu. The face is drawn with food-safe markers, and the hearts have the word XMAS made with alphabet food picks (I’d really prefer to spell Christmas, but it isn’t possible with only 1 set of letters) and a homemade heart pick. At right is the top, vented, compartment. That has a vegetarian and gluten-free rice krispie treat with Christmas MnMs in a silicone heart cup with a green heart food pick, some pineapple in an EasyLunchboxes Mini Dipper with a heart fork, and in two mini silicone cups are a homemade chocolate peanut butter ball and a pink chocolate heart symbolizing the love of Christmas.
G2′s lunch is packed in an Easy Lunchbox. She has two provolone and mustard sandwiches on gluten-free bread. One sandwich is in the shape of an angel, decorated a smidge with food-safe markers, with a crown. The other sandwich is in the shape of a heart and has the word LOVE spelled out with alphabet picks and a homemade heart pick. At right in the small section she has some carrots and a little panda container of ranch dressing, plus a homemade heart pick. In the lower section she has a chocolate peanut butter ball , a pink chocolate heart, and a vegetarian (made with Marshmallow Fluff rather than marshmallow) rice krispie treat, plus a pink heart food pick.
G3 also had tomato soup in a Thermos, which isn’t in the picture. She’s really fussy about parts of her lunch and snack being in different containers, so she has a total of 4 containers for a lunch and a snack. Compare that with G2′s 2 containers for both (G2 has an unpictured container with Smart Puffs inside). From left to right, we have a Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container of TJs scoop chips, then an Easy Lunchbox. The larger section of her ELB has two Babybel cheeses and some Christmas Love in the form of a Christmas rice krispie treat and a pink chocolate heart, plus a princess pick. In the smaller sections she has Honeycrisp apple slices and some pineapple chunks, both with heart picks – one homemade and one not. Finally, in her Snoopy bento box she has some more Honeycrisp apple slices and a heart fork in a Bento Buddy and a chocolate peanut butter ball in a silicone heart cup.
