U is for Unicorn and Umbrella

Posted on: April 11, 2012

It’s still rainbow week.  I’m working with what I’ve got in the fridge instead of picking up a bunch of vegetables & fruits this week that we can’t finish.  So for the sake of practicality, I am using what I’ve got with some fun colored plastic cups my friend sent me for the girls.  They’re actually shot glasses.  You know the party life of parents with a 2 & 4 year old!  Whoot!  Early to bed, early to rise for us here.

Miss G wanted her Unicorn. I decided not to doll it up with a bunch of sugar today to keep it healthy.  Under the unicorn are spinach leaves.  Above the unicorn from left to right are strawberries, honeydew and pummelo, which is a ginormous grapefruit looking fruit.  It was larger than Miss G’s head, about 9″ across.  I like them because they aren’t quite as juicy so they pack well, and they’re not as tart either so the kids eat them up.  At the top left are mango chunks and at the top right is cannellini bean bruschetta leftover from dinner.  It has cannellini beans rinsed & drained, 5 leaves of fresh basil, an orange tomato, sea salt, pepper and red wine vinegar in it.  Yum!

Miss A has an umbrella with tiny vegan cheese umbrellas on top today.  Starting at the top left corner near the umbrella are honeydew pieces, top right are cannellini beans, bottom right are red carrot slices and at the bottom left are pummelo pieces.  At the top left of her lunchbox is a mandarin orange peeled with a yellow drink umbrella hat, and in the red heart are 2 sliced strawberries.  Both girls’ lunches are packed in their Easy Lunch Boxes today.
