How much is that doggy in the window?

A cute puppy lunch for Amy. Amy has been begging for a puppy, a real puppy, for sometime now. We just aren't prepared to start that journey yet. One day we will. For now she'll have to settle for a puppy in her lunch. She was thrilled and ate it all.
Ham sandwich, goldfish, pineapple and grapes. 
pretty much all of her favourites so it's no surprise that she ate it all!

Puppies x3

Everyone wanted a puppy lunch :) It was a busy morning and it was time to go grocery shopping so there was a good variety in each one as we only had a little bit of this and a little bit of that in the fridge! I like days like this actually, as it's nice to use up the odds and ends  - the last clementine, the last few blueberries, the end of the strawberries :)

Fun With Food Writers

Some fun with food writers lunches. Amy's been in her glory since she always begs for me to "colour" her sandwich. The food writers still annoy me as I haven't discovered their trick yet. There just HAS to be one or two secrets to making these work better. I try to avoid them all together but when Nana bought home a new package with pink, purple & orange I couldn't hide them in the drawer fast enough and the little munchkins have not forgotten them!

Amy's Lunch
popcorn, cantaloupe & grapes, diced peaches, celery sticks, peanut butter dip & carrots
raisins, ham sandwich with Dalmatian topper (provolone cheese)

 Rose's Lunch:
 popcorn, raisins, cantaloupe, grapes, peaches, celery, carrots, tomato & ranch dip
raisins, ham sandwich with *calico* kitty topper

Heidi's lunch
popcorn, cantaloupe, grapes, peaches, raisins, mozzarella cheese
ham sandwich with butterfly cheese toppers

I had NO intention of putting a food colouring filled, cheese topper on Heidi's lunch until she stood at the counter to watch me make lunch and then asked so sweetly "Where's mine?". I cut the butterflies out of the cheese scraps. I have NO willpower in the morning these days. I'm just glad they aren't asking for candy.

Spot & his kitty friend.

Somehow - I missed taking a photo of Heidi's lunch today! Here are the other two.

Spot the puppy for Amy
diced peaches, strawberries, granola bar, vitamins
honeydew melon, Peanut butter sandwich with puppy cheese topper

Rarely do I use the food colour markers as I figure they probably don't need that added to their diet. Amy has been just begging me to to use them on her lunch. I think someone at school must have pretty coloured sandwiches! Well I decided to do it as a surprise today  - and when she spied me making her lunch she was so excited you would have thought I filled it with candy! She had to go for a vaccination today so I thought this might make her happy when she got back to school just in time for lunch. (She was very brave at the Dr.'s and the Dr was just fabulous with her as usual so I was relieved.)

Rose's Lunch - almost the same as above
diced peaches, strawberry, granola bar, vitamins
honeydew melon, strawberry jam semi-sealed sandwich (it didn't work out too well) with an American cheese kitty on top

There have been odd times where not much lunch has been eaten in the past 2 weeks or so. Amy claims that she doesn't have enough time. Rose doesn't really have an answer. I have been trying to put in more fruit and other things that they really like without many new items,  but I cannot tell if it made a difference or not. It's still pretty hot here and maybe they just really aren't that hungry at lunchtime. If it continues I'll ask the teachers for their thoughts on what might be happening.

Cute little doggy

Amy's friend got a new puppy this summer. She wanted me to make a sandwich to look like her friend's puppy. Well she got a little puppy but it doesn't look at all like her friend's Yorkie. She has a good imagination though -- she can pretend :)

diced peaches, granola bites, frozen frubes yogurt
honeydew & blueberries, gummy vitamins
little puppy in the doghouse sandwich - fruit leather and a sugar eye

This was yesterday's lunch and she ate almost everything :)

In the dog house...

Well the cute doggie is anyway:) This is yesterday's lunch. Both girls had EXACTLY the same - yay! That sure makes it a bit quicker in the morning.

I don't even know which photo was which. So this is one of their lunches:
orange jello with strawberries (by request), granola bites, frozen frubes yogurt
watermelon, grape fruit snacks, dog house PB sandwich with fruit leather doggie.

and this is the other:
You can almost see the little spoon I tucked in for the jello in this picture 
it had a dog on it.

Almost every bite was eaten out of both lunches :))
