U is for USA

Simple little lunch today..   When I became a US citizen about 8 years ago, my friend gave me a united states cookie cutter :)  I finally get to use it :)

Cheese open faced sandwich united states.  With Marshmallow USA (in read blue and white, yes it should of been red, white and blue, but I cut them out in the wrong order.. opps)
Ham with a flag pick, strawberries and carrots.  Go-gurt and juice.

Yesterday  G got in a bit of trouble at lunch for playing with the alien, so I guess that teaches me to put a toy in his lunch.  ha...

U is for UFO

We (meaning my ) had a fog delay this morning, but G's school did not.. so I have some extra time on my hands and am getting a jump start on my post for today.

G's letter this week is U, and yesterday when I was making is umbrella lunch he found a little alien in my box of goodies and wanted to put it in his lunch.  I didn't think it would really fit with the umbrella, so I told him I would use it today with a UFO... so...

He has a planet of rice, with a cheese UFO... I kind of took a pumpkin cutter and squished it to kind of make a UFO.. I tell you creative blocks these days... Cheese and marshmallow (I had trouble with the O and cheese) letters. The little Alien guy is in the corner.  he has ham on a stick, cookies, carrots and strawberries.  Go gurt and juice too ;)

oopps I did it again...

Maybe this is what I just need to do... Only tell myself I have to post twice a week instead of everyday, maybe I would feel like I meet that goal, since I am having a hard time posting everyday. 
I make him a lunch everyday, but just don't get on here.

So here are the lunches from the last few days

Joker... ok sad, but he loved it... 

Just a simple frog, G's class studied the frog life cycle on Friday, so I thought I would go with that.  He has a frog pick in his strawberry and a bat (which represents a fly) in his steak

U - Umbrella.. cheese and bread, carrots, strawberry. Bottom has buttered noodles and goldfish crackers.

D is for Ducky

I was going to do a whole donut day today, but my hubby ate all the little donuts we had, so without a real donut I kind of figured... wasn't really going to work.... so I had to come up with something else and fast...

Look through the cutter and a cute little ducky presented itself.  Bingo

So on the top tier of his box he has a cheese open faced sandwich ducky and a letter D... Carrots, and bananas on a stick.  On the bottom tier (not shown) he has noodles with sauce, a yogurt and a cookie.
