It’s getting close to spring! Not that our part of New England has heard about it, but that’s what the calendar is saying. We’re getting tired of below-freezing temps and hoping for flowers to bloom and to see frogs when we go to the pond. Today’s lunches are reminders that spring is around the corner.
G2 has a froggy lunch in her Easy Lunchbox. At the top left is a Lunchbox Love note that has a frog joke. Inside the bento are two silicone cups – on the left are some multigrain gluten-free crackers and on the right is Havarti with dill cheese and a frog food pick. (As an aside, we were listening to the Muppets while we painted, and seeing a blue frog reminds me of the song I’m in love with a big blue frog…” which we love. I hope G2 remembers it, too!) Also in the large section of the bento is a frog cut out of cheese with the CuteZCute animal friends cutter and a few flowers cut out of cheese. At the top right are some green grapes with another frog. At the bottom right is one of the cupcakes G3 made for everyone and a flower food pick.
G1 also has a froggy lunch. She has nice hot tomato soup in her Thermos, and cold goodies in her Totoro Bento Box. At left, in the top section, is one of the cupcakes G3 made in a silicone cup and another silicone cup and a Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container with green grapes, a frog, a ladybug, and a leaf. At right, in the bottom section of the bento is a frog cut out of tofu with the CuteZCute cutter and some flowers cut out with a vegetable cutter. I also included a Lunchbox Love note to make her smile. Her school had 2 bomb threats on Tuesday, so she’s a little nervous about being in school today. It’s nice to have the Lunchbox Love notes to send a little love in her lunch!
