Oh, Christmas Tree Bento (in an Easy Lunchbox System)
(In larger section) DIY Lunchable with Wheat Thins, Colby Jack Cheese and Pepperoni (the first of which was assembled like a Santa Hat), Broccoli Christmas Tree decorated with cheese, homemade Ranch Dip in the red container.
(In the smaller compartments) Yogurt with a few Holiday Sprinkles (in an Easy Lunchbox Little Dipper), Grapes and Blueberries
Today, I only had one lunch to prepare for my Preschool Crowd. One, lowly bento lunch.
Once again — we have started a Tuesday with a sick Kidlet. Fevers, chills, runny nose, and generally crabbiness.
(ok, so the crabbiness may be more on my part…. just ignore that, m’kay?)
All this crud is kinda makin’ December hard, you know what I mean? One by one, the Kidlets take turn being sick and being too sad to really enjoy all of our Holiday traditions: seeing the lights, singing hymns at Church … and all the yummy treats I’ve been making aren’t getting fully appreciated thanks to sad little throats.
So, here it is: my one request for Christmas.
NO MORE SICK KIDLETS!!!
I want everyone well, everyone happy, everyone energetic and EVERYONE at school.
p.s. No more “Man-Cold” for the Husband either… if it isn’t too much trouble!
I Heart Lunch: Let’s Talk Kid Food!
I adore getting inspiration and ideas (and even “THAT’S how you do that” moments) from others out there … so let’s share with one another with the “I Heart Lunch Weekly Link-up.”
You can link to any kid-lunch/bento or kid-friendly recipe on a blog post or via flickr photos — this linky is for any kind of healthy school lunch and kid-food, regardless if it is Bento-style or not. I want to celebrate our efforts to provide good and enjoyable school lunches for our children!
The linky is offered each Tuesday when I share our Bento lunches so you’ll be able to add your lunches every week. My only request is that you either add a link back to this post or include the Lunch Graphic (which links back) to your post so others can get here to view the linked lunches too!
Link up your school lunches and bentos! Please use a permalink for your post rather than linking your general blog/flickr account URL — this will help people go directly to your fabulous lunch!
Note: you can link a blog post, public facebook photo, flickr page, etc.
Now — link ’em up!
