Next week is spring break. The way I look right now I’m the poster child for spring break. I need sleep. I need a healthy child. I need a healthy husband. I need not to work until past 11 pm every night. I need to do some dishes.

My son’s lunches
Leftover frittata, sliced apples, carrots, pineapples,
yogurt, pretzels in soccer-print bag
After I sent this lunch, I worried I didn’t include enough protein so I overcompensated the rest of the week. My husband bought a whole pineapple at the grocery store and he cut it while our son watched. The pineapple in our lunches was fresh. Daycare menu: Meat & cheese lasagna, pineapple bits, green beans with fruit and crackers and American cheese as snacks.
Chicken pesto sandwich, pineapple, carrot sticks,
smoked salmon cracker sandwiches, coconut milk yogurt, bar
We went out for dinner to a gluten-free restaurant not to far from our house. I sent the half of a chicken pesto sandwich we had leftover. Daycare menu: Ground beef, mashed potatoes, orange wedges, diced carrots with fruit and ice cream as snacks.
Mac and cheese with goat brie, sardines, broccoli,
yogurt, sliced apples
The kid was not that crazy about the pasta. Day care menu: Tuna with pasta, diced pears, peas with yogurt and fruit as snacks.
Fish sticks, roasted carrots and sweet potatos, green beans,
corn muffin, yogurt, sliced kiwi
That morning I was out of ideas. Day care menu: Cheese ravioli, strawberry yogurt, diced peaches, green beans with fruit and yogurt as snacks.
Mac and goat brie cheese with carrots, two hard-boiled eggs,
applesauce, muffin, sliced kiwi
I find that it’s very easy to hard boil eggs in the morning. Day care menu: Chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, applesauce, diced carrots with fruit and blueberry muffins for snacks.
Frittata, apple slices, coconut milk yogurt, KIND bar
Smoked salmon, glutino crackers,
spinach, pineapple, a carrot
I’m always trying to find a new twist on a “sandwich.” Here I used gluten free crackers for petite salmon and spinach sandwiches. Lots of salmon and sardines this week to help combat my vitamin D deficiency…actually I should probably see a doctor over break to make sure my levels have been going up.
Sardines, brown rice couscous with apricot, broccoli, apple
roasted veggies (yellow beets, carrots, sweet potatoes),
brown rice couscous, sardines, kiwi, KIND bar
I have always enjoyed sardines. To eat the kiwi, I packed a knife and spoon so I could cut it in half and then scoop out the yummy insides.
Roasted root veggies in pasta, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt
I’m loving these “rustic” lunches.
Because I’m going to be on vacation this coming week, I’m not going to photograph my lunches unless they are truly exceptional. I need a break. I’ll share this week’s lunches next weekend and we’ll be all caught up!
