Snow and Sick.. so catching up

Well here in our neck of the woods we got a tiny bit of now (but around here it is a big deal) so we have had some snow days, no school days and I have been under the weather, so posting had taken a back seat.  Sorry....

Here is my catch up...

January 22nd

W is for Walrus
G came home the friday before with a cute Walrus he made in school.  I tried to duplicate it for his lunch.


Walrus is a soft pretzel with a cheddar cheese heart for his snout, and provolone eyes.  The W is made from bread.  He has the normal with it.


It was also G's turn for snack that day so we make robots from cheese sticks, juice box and apple sauce.  I think they are cute, but not sure how big of a hit it was.,.. lots of apple sauce came back.  Oh well.




Wednesday January 23

On to letter K.
K is for Kite (easy lunch for me as I was not feeling great)


Pizza kite with pepperoni cross and tail.  Cheese K.. cheese stick, strawberries, carrot and more peperoni.

W is for Web

G is really into superheros right now, especially batman and spiderman.  So I figured I would give him a web lunch.

My mom (YaYa) found some cute bento boxes and sent them to G.  Today was the first day I got to use them. He has never had a two tiered one before.. Can't wait to hear how that worked out.















On the bottom tier He has spaghetti with a cheese web.  Bread W, which G cut out himself. Strawberries and a carrot.  On the top tier goldfish, cheese stick and a cookie.  He has a Go-gurt and juice to go with it.

W Week

G started with W this week and on Wednesday he has a Wacky day.  I would of love to make a really wacky lunch, but they are also having a practice drill that day and have to have a disposable lunch, so I just thought it would be easier if he bought.. so that is what he is going to do tomorrow... but onto today..

W is for Wolf.




Wolf pizza, cheddar word Wolf.  Strawberries, carrots, turkey and a cookie. Yogurt and juice as usual.

See you all on Thursday :)

Last of the M days

I am sure G is moving on to another letter today at school, but I still wanted to reiforce the letter from last week. So he has M is for Monster.
Pizza monster with a eye ring, and provalone M and nose and mouth.  Carrots, goldfish, strawberries and a cookie.  He has ice skating/hockey lessons tonight, so he also has a cheese stick and yogurt to fill him up, as the boys don't get home till late.


Oh and Friday he had M is for Mittens.  Not that it has been really cold to use mittens (no snow for us) but we do wear them in the morning :)
The beloved buttered noodles (shells) are still in this lunch. Bread mittens, cheese stick, shredded turkey, carrots, and strawberries topped with a marshmallow M.

Little Penguins

G asked for buttered noodles for lunch today, but I still had to make it cute.. guess I will have to start getting shaped noodles ;).  His class was talking about penguins on Friday, so I thought I would tie them in

So I have been taking it easy. 

Wednesday was back to school for us and with my shoulder still being a tad bid sore easy lunches have been the key this week.
