On the Monday after Thanksgiving, G2 didn’t have school. She’s loving her Charter School for many reasons, but the extra days off and half days are a total bonus. (As an aside, they are in school for 185 days as opposed to 180 for the regular schools, but she always seems to have more days off. It’s very confusing) Now that it’s December, I wanted to include some snow and cold-related items. Sure, we haven’t seen anything more than a stray flurry, but the on-street parking ban has started for the winter, and it seemed appropriate to celebrate winter a little bit. I added a couple Lunchbox Love jokes in plastic sleeves to their lunches, too.
G1 has a Thermos filled with tomato soup, plus her Totoro Bento Box. In the bottom, sealed section of the bento box she has tofu cut into panda shapes using the CuteZCute animal pals cutter for the large pandas, and CuteZCute panda cutter for the small pandas. She also has a gluten-free chocolate chip cheesecake inside a silicone heart cup. The cheesecake has a chocolate star on top, plus a little blue dolphin food pick. On the right, in the vented top portion of the bento I put some saran wrap down so the fresh pineapple chunks wouldn’t leak juice everywhere. I also put the pineapple in silicone heart cups and added a blue whale food pick and a snowflake food pick for a pop of color.
G3 had a Thermos filled with chicken and rice soup, plus a Laptop Lunchbox of fruit, veggies, and other treats (she has a large snack and then a lunch later, hence two sets of food). At the top left is her chocolate chip cheesecake, with an otter food pick. At the top right are some baby carrots and celery with a blue dolphin food pick and a little bunny container I filled with ranch dressing, her favorite dip. At the bottom right are some S’morables gf graham crackers with a silver chocolate coin and a pink dolphin food pick. At the bottom left is some fresh pineapple plus a snowflake food pick.
If G2 had been included in the lunch packing, anywhere there’s a dolphin or a whale, she’d have a penguin. And she’d have something other than pineapple for a fruit. Instead, though, she’s sleeping in, then helping my mother make gift baskets to sell at her church fair.
