Miss G’s preschool is reviewing day in English this week, next week in Spanish.  Wednesday’s lunch is leftover dinner.  We had homemade fusilli pasta from Peperonata Pasta, a local company here in Sarasota that makes delicious homemade vegan pasta.  I mixed in butter beans and edamame, vegan pesto and organic cherry tomatoes in the shape of a W for Wednesday.  I used a cookie cutter to stamp a messy W in a large apple piece at the top left and the top right are seedless organic black grapes packed in her Easy Lunchbox container.

For her snack today, Miss G had circles of honeydew melon and watermelon with raspberry flavored So Delicious coconut milk yogurt in the small stainless container packed in her Happy Tiffin stainless bento.

And Miss A (2) had the same smaller portions of the vegan pesto fusilli pasta too packed in her LunchBots Quad.  She also had honeydew circles, pineapple and plum pieces and watermelon circles in her lunch.

I’m not sure if my girls have seen Fantasia, but that would be the closest exposure they’ve had to a wizard. Today Miss G gets a wizard sandwich with vegan cheese stars and a crescent moon on his hat. He has candy eyes, a dried cherry piece for a nose and Daiya vegan shredded cheese for his beard. His wand is a pretzel stick with a strawberry star at the top. At the top right are watermelon stars and the bottom right are crescent sliced peaches packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

Little Miss A has some bad weather for lunch. Because it’s W week they are talking about different types of weather. I made her a cumulonimbus cloud with lightning bolts coming out of the bottom. She also has some Veggy vegan cheese smaller clouds above the sandwich, and at the bottom right of the sandwich are Snyder’s pretzel snaps. At the top right are frozen guacamole pinwheels and at the bottom right are strawberry slices with a Veggy cheese umbrella on top.

Thu hubby also gets another salad to go with his lunch. He has an all spinach salad today with cucumber slices, mini carrots and edamame sprinkled in. (Not shown is a container of ginger dressing). Last night I also made oven roasted chickpeas. They turned out pretty well although some are a bit too soft for my taste. They are like a healthier version of corn nuts if done properly. I rinsed & dried the beans, drizzled a bit of olive oil, placed them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper & baked at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Then I used sea salt & garlic powder to season once they were done (shown at top right). On the bottom right are mini grape & plum tomatoes from our plants out back. All 3 lunches today are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

I’ll bet you can’t guess what letter they’re teaching at school this week!  It’s W week so I attempted my version of a windmill for Miss G.  I hand cut the base out of whole grain bread flattened with a rolling pin.  Then I decided to do Snyder’s pretzel squares stuck on crackers with Justin’s almond butter to make the blades. . At the top right are yellow tomatoes we grew in our backyard for the hair and a larger cherry tomato for the face.  I used vegan cheese to cut a winking face to go with the W theme.  At the bottom right are blueberries and a strawberry W.   Her lunch is packed in her Easy Lunch Box.

Miss A is having a W and a worm for lunch today.  From the top left are watermelon stars, cashews, a sliced strawberry a pick of blueberries and dried cherries with an apricot heart on top.  Her lunch is packed in a LunchBots stainless container.

My husband also gets a salad today to go with his lunch.  His salad is baby spinach leaves and butter lettuce with watermelon radish shaped into small pie pieces and a heart in the middle.  He also has a green onion on it, yellow carrots from the local market.  At the top right he has a bunch of mini carrots, and at the bottom right .  His lunch is also packed in an Easy Lunch Box.

Happy Monday to everyone!
