V is for Venus

Back to the letter V today (yesterday could count as valentine)  So this morning I asked G.. do you want me to do voice or venus.. He picked venus, so we looked up what it looked like and he said -- orange-- my favorite color. 

VENUS in cheese, with an outer space bread background, cheese planet and spaceship.  Heart is a pick.  Carrots, salami, nilla wafers, and strawberries.

Valentine's Day Hop

Joining a hop again, love doing them.  This time for Valentine lunches.  Can't wait to see them all.
Don't think this is one of my best, but it is still cute and G will still love it and be thankful for a special lunch.

Love Bug

Heart bread with heart salamis on top.  White cheddar cheese as the face, with some picks for the antennas.  On the side, more cheese with a heart drawn on.. Carrots in cut in the shape of hearts (didn't show up so well on my picture) and some marshmallow hearts.

It also G's Day to bring snack.  It's kind of a mild one today as I had just a bit on my plate so I went easy on myself.

Popcorn, strawberry frosted mini wheats, heart to heart cereal, craisins.  All in a cute heart take out box. Juice in pink and red cups go with it.

Hop on over to Biting the Hand that Feeds You to continue the hop.

Winter Olympics

Once again I get to be part of a blog hop, this time for the Winter Olympics.  So much fun, so keep reading to find out how to get to the next blog.

I love the Olympics, this will be the first year that G really "gets" them.... He is in love with ice hockey right now, so we are most excited to watch that event.  The only time we will be a family a tiny bit divided is if Canada and USA play against each other.  I spent my early years growing up in Canada so I have to cheer for my roots....  but all in all I would be happy with either of them getting the gold!

So today's lunch is...

Noodles (by request) topped with some turkey.  The cheese in in the shape of the Olympics hockey symbol, and a USA pick (I didn't have a Canadian one or it would of been there too).  On the sides we have some Nilla wafers with 2014 written on one, carrots with a polar bear pick, and oranges with color picks to represent the Olympic rings.

Go USA and Canada!

Letter o week - and then some...

Well last week was letter O week.   We also had some snow and G got a snow day on Wednesday, and went in late on Thursday


I was feeling not so hot, so it was an easy lunch for me with nothing to do with O
Dino chicken nuggets with a sun potato,  cheese flowers, nilla wafers, bread suns, carrots and oranges.

Tuesday - O is for octopus
Left over baked pasta with mozzarella octopus (which are melting away, oops) with some fish rings. 
Cheddar cheese, pepperoni, goldfish crackers, nilla wafers and some apple and a yogurt (not pictured) complete his lunch.

Wednesday - snow day

Thursday - O is for Owls.

Owls are made from bread circles with cheese eyes and wings, carrot noses.  A Cheddar O, applesauce with sprinkles, more cheese, carrots, and turkey round out his lunch.

Friday -  Grandparents lunch, so I took G out of school early as his grandparents are far away and couldn't come.

and that leads us to this week.

Monday - no school

Today (Tuesday)  O is for Olaf (again, G just loves the movie Frozen and when I asked for somthing that started with O  Olaf it was..) 
They might of started a new letter today, but I figure with missing a day last week I could do one more O lunch

Olaf is bread and sharp white cheddar cheese, with a carrot nose and pretzel arms.  He has strawberries, carrots, Nilla wafers and some ham to go with it.  Oh and Olaf is sitting on some blue rice/Ice...
