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.

Happy Friday!

If I haven’t raved about them enough, The LunchPunch makes some of the greatest sandwich cutters out there.  They are cute, they waste little bread, they’re sturdy and they save SO much time with lunches!  This one is Rudi’s Nut and Oat bread with a pumpernickel dog piece in the middle.  I used bread crust for his collar and the flowers cutouts are from the apple at the top left and a tree trunk pick.  On the dog picks on either side are green seedless grapes.  The top left is an apple tree with flower cutouts and more green grapes underneath.  At the top right are watermelon fire hydrants because we all know dogs are drawn to them!

Miss G’s snack today is sugar snap peas, grape tomatoes and mini carrots.

And Little Miss A is doing the letter C this week so the topic of the week was the circus.  From the bottom left is a round clown face sandwich.  The eyes are vegan chocolate chips, the nose is a dried apricot, the cheeks are raspberries, the mouth is Stretch Island fruit leather and the hair is Shirataki brand tofu pasta.  The hat above is watermelon and cantaloupe triangles surrounded by green grapes.  At the top right are mini carrots and a honeydew melon elephant with a pick hat. He’s standing on a circus stand below made of watermelon and cantaloupe with circus themed picks of the big top, another elephant and a seal in her LunchBots Quad.
