Today was a leftover day.  Come on!  I can’t pull out spectacular on a daily basis 😉  I had some Rudi’s brand spelt tortillas and rice with black eyed peas just calling my name from the fridge.  So I rolled them up and made them lunch.

Miss G is reading now (at 4.5) which means I can’t spell out the things I don’t want her to hear any more.  BUT it does mean I can start small with lunchbox notes.  I wrote on her clementine today in marker and made a weird looking heart out of it to tell her “I Love You!”.  The Goodbyn bynto box fits the water bottle in the middle, and at the bottom are chunks of watermelon and pineapple.

Miss G’s snack is a Happy Tiffin with a half an apple surrounded by pieces of plum.  I added a leaf sticker for fun.  The round container has apricot mango soy yogurt in it.

For her afternoon snack she has a pickle with black and kalamata olives on top and the top container is full of mini carrots.

Miss A has a simple lunch today.  From the top left are a pink flower of plain hummus, organic corn chips, strawberry soy yogurt and pineapple and watermelon pieces packed in her LunchBots container.  Not shown are organic gala apples for little Miss A’s class snack.

Today is the first day back to school for us.  Not sure that I’m feeling quite ready for this, but here we go.  These lunches are from last week’s playdate at a friend’s house.  Tomorrow I will post the back to school lunches.  I got 2 new sandwich makers to try.  The first one is from Bento USA by All Things For Sale.  I saw a lunch that they did, and I thought it was the cutest thing.

Expect more pandas from us throughout the school year!  This makes sandwich pockets and even toast cute for your little picky eaters.  Fill the panda face with vegetables or fillings to make them different colors or simply use different kinds of bread.

I was in a rush so I went for simple.   The panda sandwich is on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with Justin’s Almond Butter and strawberries in the middle.  A homemade mini vegan cornbread muffin is above the sandwich and heart shaped strawberries.  At the top left are organic raspberries with vegan chocolate chips in the middle and panda baran.  At the top right are sliced red seedless grapes and sliced dried apricots packed in an Easy LunchBoxes.

And I got a new sandwich cutter from Pampered Chef friend.  It’s called the cut & seal & makes uncrustable looking sandwich pockets.  I get the feeling I’ll be using this one a lot as makes things quick for me, and I can easily make sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them!

I decided to make a pig out of it for Little Miss 4  year old.  I used candy eyes and the heel of the bread is great for dark accents (the nose and ears).  She also has a vegan mini cornbread muffin and blueberries.  At the top are carrots and Tufutti sour cream for dipping in the small pig container.  At the top right are strawberry hearts with a raspberry in the middle and pig pick packed in her Easy LunchBox.

I packed myself a plain almond butter sandwich and a LunchBots Duo full of fruit.  From the top left are fresh, local Florida mango chunks, blueberries, rasperries and mini carrots.

Things I used to make this lunch:

This was from last week’s lunches.  I’m just behind on posting.   I was running late the morning I made this.  I used a dinosaur cookie cutter.  I used a chocolate decorator drop for the eye and the leftover crust for the plates and the spiked tail on the Stegosaurus.  I added some wheat spiral umbrella cookies I found at the Asian grocery store along with the snack size Sabra hummus, whole grain pretzel sticks and Craisins in the stainless LunchBot bento.  In the butterfly container, I cut strawberries with my stainless flower vegetable & fruit cutter and filled in the space with raspberries & blueberries.

Little sis got a smaller version of the lunch.  She also had the hummus with mini bread sticks for dipping, cashews and in the heart bento she got raspberries, blueberries, flower shaped strawberries and a mini PB&J circle sandwich.  Both girls had a Lifeway Kefir pouch and waters with their lunches.
