Posts Tagged ‘pumpernickel bread

My 4 year old loves her sandwiches.  She has whole grain and pumpernickel puzzle pieces.  I used the The Lunch Punch puzzle piece cutters for this one.  I cut the bread first, fill the sandwiches and then reassemble the pieces.  To the left is a pick of grape tomatoes and dried apricots.  Above the sandwich are red seedless grapes.  In the top left compartment of her Easy LunchBoxes are heart shaped strawberries and the top right are apple pieces.  I soak the apples immediately in a bowl of cold water with a bit of lemon or lime juice to prevent browning.  I soaked these for about 10 minutes and then toweled dry and put in the lunchbox.

See this great post by Cristi of  Bent On Better Lunches on different methods for preventing your fruits from browning in the lunchbox.

The Great Apple Browning Experiment

For her snack, Miss G has Sabra hummus with two different types of grapes and sliced kiwi.  Not shown are crackers for dipping in the hummus.

Still going on with the giant box of clementines we have, today’s face is a vampire.  Stay tuned for one last Halloween lunch and a giveaway this week.  Stay warm & safe, everyone!

I am not posting for the rest of the week so I can spend time with my family for a long weekend.  Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th!

Miss G had a large star made from Rudi’s Whole Grain bread and a pumpernickel star sandwich.  Next to that she has a star container of organic cherries.  At the top left is a homemade mini pumpkin spice muffin.  I cut a star out of the top and filled it with a small bit of vegan cream cheese.  At the top right are watermelon and cantaloupe stars packed in her Easy Lunch Box.

Little Miss A had her version of the same with stacked peek-a-boo star sandwiches.  Above the sandwich is the same homemade mini pumpkin spice muffin with a small star of vegan cream cheese in the top and a star of cherries. At the top left she has blueberries sprinkled with raw goji berries on top.  At the top right she has cantaloupe and watermelon stars packed in her Easy Lunch Box.

My husband got in on the festivities with as much flair as I could pull off in his salad.  His salad is baby kale & spinach topped with sunflower seeds, zucchini stars and cherry tomatoes.  At the top left is a black plum and at the top right is a homemade vegan cornbread muffin all packed in his Easy Lunch Box.
