Happy Hump Day!  In addition to the letter X this week, the girls are also learning about flowers in school this week.

Miss G has 2 flower sandwiches on Ezekiel Low Sodium bread.  Above the flowers in the flower cup she has raspberries surrounding a cantaloupe flower.  At the top right are blueberries underneath a pear flower with a blueberry in the middle.  At the bottom right are sugar snap peas with a cup of brown and wild rice in a flower cup on top of them and a flower cup of cashews.

Miss A has 2 matryoshka dolls, also known as Russian nesting dolls, for lunch.  They are also on Ezekiel bread with fruit leather hair and faces. Underneath the dolls are sugar snap peas.  At the bottom left she has watermelon and cantaloupe flowers.  At the top left she has a cup of pineapples underneath blueberry stuffed raspberries.  I saw some of my other blogger friends doing this, and I thought it was so cute and clever!

My husband has a spinach salad today topped with a cucumber X and heirloom tomato slices.  At the top right is white bean bruschetta with tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and red wine vinegar.  At the bottom right is a cup of mini carrots and a piece of purple cauliflower in the middle and blueberries around the cauliflower.  All 3 lunches today are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

The week before Easter is fun for me because I love building up the excitement for my girls.  How many more “sleeps” until the Bunny comes?  My kids, like most, adore little animals.  They recently got their spring pictures taken with some little baby chicks.  Miss G was VERY into mothering them and holding them while little A just stared at them.  She wasn’t sure whether or not they were scary, and every time these 3″ high chicks walked towards her she would shriek.   These chicks are the best kind.  Nothing to clean up!

Miss G has watermelon flowers at the top left with a chick pick, at the top right are blueberries and a strawberry butterfly with a duckling pick.  The chick sandwich is on Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread with almond butter & jam.  On top are slices of mozzarella and cheddar Vegan brand cheese, a candy eye and a carrot beak.   In the yellow chick cup are edamame and carrot butterflies on top, and in the Easter egg are cashews packed in an Easy Lunch Box.

Little Miss A has a duckling today with the same sandwich and Vegan soy cheese on top wearing a hat pick.  The beak and wing are carrots and the eye is a pre-made candy eye.  At the top left are blueberries with a strawberry butterfly and a chick pick, a clementine orange is next to that, and in the yellow chick cup are edamame with a carrot butterfly on top.  Her lunch is in a Hello Kitty bento box.

I also made a salad for my husband to go with his Amy’s brand frozen rice & veggie bowl lunch.  His salad is all spinach leaves underneath topped with a quartered watermelon radish (the purple slices with the green edge).  I hadn’t ever seen one before until a few months ago.  They are pretty plain looking outside, but inside they’re amazingly pretty.  They are also much spicier (I think) than a normal radish.  I also included orange & yellow carrots from the local King Family Farms and a handful of walnuts packed in his LunchBots stainless bento.

Please check back tomorrow, as I’ll be linked to Stephanie from A Pocket Full of Buttons and 15 other bento bloggers for a Bunny Hop with awesome springtime ideas for lunches!
