Penguins! Before & After


I made this little penguins lunch for Emily and had a rare moment to snap a photo of the "after".


red & green grapes, a couple of carrot penguins, strawberries
Strawberry jam sandwiches, string cheese

This is what came home at the end of the day.
She ate almost everything. 




Here are some items that I used when making this lunch.

Grownup Lunch!


Here's a lunch I packed for my husband to take to work. This is a huge container so that is a decent sized salad!

Leftover potato salad, pears with a few pieces of dried mango.
Mixed salad with romaine, grape tomatoes, mini bell peppers, cucumbers
ham, cheese, carrots & snap peas. I didn't' send dressing because we have some in the office fridge.
I heard this was good :)

These containers are the ones I usually send the girls for their hot lunch because they seal really well. This is helpful when they don't eat everything and leave dressed salad, coleslaw or pasta sauce. They are just so darn big it annoys me. It makes them hard to pack in lunch bags, particularly on days when they need a morning snack AND an afternoon snack. They're fine for grownups though!

Ceasar Salad lunch

Day 2 for Amy was a salad lunch. She picked everything.


Snack is apples, carrots & peanut butter.
Her lunch is a Ceasar salad with no croutons, the dressing is in a container under the peanut butter
with a side of pears. 


This is a Rubbermaid lunch blox divided container, they aren't huge but it was still a bit too much for her.  To be fair I did pack quite a bit of lettuce in there. The carrots are in a cube sized Sistema snack container and the peanut butter fit right on top in a little cup that sits under the lid. I think we will like that container this year! I bought all of these containers at Lindo's Devonshire but you can find them at lots of places - including Amazon!

Chips & Salsa for Friday!

Normally Fridays are pizza days at school. They didn't start on the first Friday so as a special treat everyone had chips & salsa lunch. It was a hit. All were slightly different variations, and here are two of them.

This is Rose's (no salsa!)

mini bell peppers, grape tomatoes, carrots, roasted chicken breast
assorted berries & Lundberg Red Rice & Quinoa Chips with french onion dip


 This is Emily's lunch.

cheese stick & pistachios , blackberries & strawberries
chips & salsa.

Diced pears, blackberries, cheese stick

Back to School - Day 1.


The first week of back to school went well! Girls did a great job of getting ready in the morning. Although the wee one was a little slower than the rest ;)

This is Emily's lunch from the first day of school. It's packed in her Yumbox lunchbox.


Honeydew & Cantaloupe, Cucumbers & Carrots
Graham Crackers, Cheese Stick & Pistachios and a few blueberries

She ate almost everything - no surprise there since she picked her lunch! She picked her "flair" too. 
Everyone else had school hot lunch on the first day -- I think it was pizza.

Hope your back to school time is going well. I have actually been away for work all week so Dad has been on lunch duty. He told me he has made salads, wraps and sandwiches. 

It's hard to find time to blog but I do have quite a few pictures from the first week so I'll do my best to share them all. My girls do like looking back at their lunches and I do too!

Here they are - M1, P5, P4, P2!



Here are some items that I used when making this lunch. The yumboxes come in different configurations and colours as shown below. They can also be found at Lindo's Devonshire and People's.
