Quack! Quack!

Quack! Quack! A fun little ducky lunch for Rose from last week.
carrot sticks, celery, cucumber, grape tomatoes, red grapes, 2 fig newtons
candy coated sunflower seeds, 2 vitamins in the little chick container.
Mommy duck, baby duck and sun ham sandwiches.

I have loads of lunches to post from the last couple of weeks. I have been so busy with work and school  that I just haven't had a chance to post them. We still have several weeks of school left but it already feels like summer vacation because the weather has been great! 

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

Lunch x 5!

A friend was over with her children and I made them all a planetbox lunch - so that was 5 lunches at once. Here we go:
Lunch #1
Goldfish & yogurt covered raisins, ranch dip, cucumbers, tomato, celery, carrots
strawberries, blueberries, honeydew, cherry fruit leather fish, fish sandwich ( it was ham I think)

Lunch #2
goldfish & yog covered raisins, dip, cucumbers, carrots,
berries & melon, cherry fruit leather fish,
ham cat sandwich with a very crooked mouth - lol!

Lunch #3 - Heidi's lunch
pretty much the same as the others except no dip, no celery, no picks
and a peanut butter duck sandwich

Lunch #4 - Amy's lunch choices
butterfly crackers, boiled egg, yogurt covered raisins, cucumber flowers & carrot sticks
blueberries & strawberries, honeydew melon, cherry fruit leather butterfly
cat sandwich - either PB or ham I can't remember!

Lunch #5 - Rosie's lunch
butterfly crackers, yog covered raisins, dip, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, celery
strawberries & blue berries, honeydew melon, fruit leather crown, butterfly sandwich.

I didn't over decorate her butterfly with jumbo sprinkles as I usually would as I didn't want it to seem unfair to the other children who only had a candy eye or two on their sandwich! So a very plain butterfly it was - no complaints :)

Rose didn't eat too much of her lunch as she wanted to go back to playing - the others ate lots :) I realised afterwards that I had put a little too much in Heidi's but she still ate a good portion of it.

Duckies planetbox & odds and ends MTM

Amy wanted a Mommy duck and some baby ducks for lunch. Ok. No problem. So here we have the Duckies lunch :) I could only fit one baby duck sandwich but there are other baby ducks around. Amy doesn't usually like cheese so I put a little bit of cheese in the hope that she would try it.  Nope. All of the cheese came home. Ah well, I'll still try it again. She was so excited about the ducks it was worth a try.

Ritz crackers with ham & cheese ducks, frozen frubes yogurt
mandarin oranges, strawberries, fruit leather ducks,
Peanut butter Mom & baby duck sandwich

I was able to cut both the Mom and baby duck out of the same sandwich so there was very little waste ( usually H & I eat the scraps so it's not really wasted). I find the frubes yogurts fit really well into that long spot and since it's getting warmer I prefer to freeze the yogurt instead of just relying on an ice pack. If I freeze a yo kids it just doesn't fit very well - so no more yo kids for awhile.

Bento Lunch

Also on Friday I made Heidi a MTM. I was feeling a bit unwell and didn't have any plan, so I made her an odds and ends MTM again. She likes the variety, I like that it's really quick with minimal effort. Win - Win.

 Ritz crackers, cheddar flowers (and scraps behind), kiwi slices
vanilla yogurt, carrot sticks & tomatoes, mandarin oranges & raspberries

She didn't really like the kiwi, but she hasn't had it that often. The raspberries were on their last day but still tasty - she ate them first! And as predicted she dipped her carrots in the yogurt. Surprisingly she didn't eat much of the crackers as it was the one thing she was asking for when I was putting it together. I guess the rest just looked yummier when she saw it all assembled :)

I see I have been getting some followers lately - *waves* thanks for reading!
