I can see clearly now. The rain is gone. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day! Now that you have that classic Johnny Nash song stuck in your head I made a lunch about it!
From the top left are black seedless grapes and watermelon suns. At the top right is barley, white beans and carrot pennies from dinner the night before. In the bottom compartment is a smiley sunshine sandwich on Rudi’s Honey Wheat bread. Above the sun are pineapple pieces with a honeydew bird. To the right are honeydew pieces with a cantaloupe sun and the bottom right pink cup are cantaloupe pieces with a honeydew palm tree and some fun face picks for decoration. Her lunch is packed in Easy LunchBoxes container.
For her snack, my 4 year old has a matching smiling sun d’anjou pear surrounded by dried cranberries and raisins. In the orange blossom cup are carrot bread circles.
Little Miss 2 year old has a veterinarian visiting her class today so I made her a dog. We actually have a long haired dachshund so this looks a lot like him, without the raisin eye and nose, of course. I used the leftover crust for his ear. She also has carrot bread circles in the tiny green bucket above the dog. In the Stitch container is trail mix of mixed nuts, dried fruits and seeds. At the top left are pineapple pieces with a watermelon sun and the top right are black seedless grapes packed in her LunchBots Uno stainless container.
And packed in his Easy LunchBoxes container are leftovers for my husband. The last night we had barley with white beans, carrots, onions and a bit of celery seasoned with cinnamon and oranges from one of my new plant based cookbooks. Yum! I made a smiley face with the carrots. At the top left are honeydew and cantaloupe pieces and at the top right, a clementine.
