Stacking flowers and matryoshka (nesting) dolls
Posted May 2, 2012on:
Happy Hump Day! In addition to the letter X this week, the girls are also learning about flowers in school this week.
Miss G has 2 flower sandwiches on Ezekiel Low Sodium bread. Above the flowers in the flower cup she has raspberries surrounding a cantaloupe flower. At the top right are blueberries underneath a pear flower with a blueberry in the middle. At the bottom right are sugar snap peas with a cup of brown and wild rice in a flower cup on top of them and a flower cup of cashews.
Miss A has 2 matryoshka dolls, also known as Russian nesting dolls, for lunch. They are also on Ezekiel bread with fruit leather hair and faces. Underneath the dolls are sugar snap peas. At the bottom left she has watermelon and cantaloupe flowers. At the top left she has a cup of pineapples underneath blueberry stuffed raspberries. I saw some of my other blogger friends doing this, and I thought it was so cute and clever!
My husband has a spinach salad today topped with a cucumber X and heirloom tomato slices. At the top right is white bean bruschetta with tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and red wine vinegar. At the bottom right is a cup of mini carrots and a piece of purple cauliflower in the middle and blueberries around the cauliflower. All 3 lunches today are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.
