I’m running a week behind in lunches. At some point I’m going to have to upload a mega post! That week was my first half-week back. My son ended up only going to day care two days that week, but I went three. Daddy got to stay home one day with the little guy. Much fun was had!
My son’s lunches
Hey, it’s meatless! The kid ate everything aside from the corn. He’s a big fan of the pumpkin seeds. Not all my lunches are hits, but I guess this one was. He likes this rice, but not most other kinds. It figures that this rice is from a restaurant. Day care menu: Meatballs, potatoes, green beans, watermelon and wheat bread.
My son is really into meat. Sometimes he’ll say, “I want chicken on the bone!” I can’t disagree with him. If I was to become a vegetarian, I would really miss eating meat off a bone. The chicken in his lunch is from a drumstick that I took off for him it fit in the container with a lid. Day care menu: chicken tenders, ketchup, pasta, carrot and celery sticks with ranch for dipping, mandarin oranges, and wheat bun.
The risotto was great — it was from a box, but I added the fresh veggies. That Larabar flavor (Blueberry) is my favorite. Generally, I’m not a big Larabar person.
Corn and potatoes is a match made in heaven. I associate mashed potatoes and corn as a holiday mixture that I stir up purposefully. Also, my son freaked with the hummus and the rice touched, so I took that hummus with me. The hot dog? Yes, I keep a pack of eco-friendly hot dogs without nitrites in my freezer for the nights when I just can’t cook. They were ok, not great.
This lunch was not big enough. I was hungry, ravenous even after work. The Larabar flavor that I ate that day was called “peanut butter cookie” and had three ingredients. Definitely my second favorite flavor!
