week #5 in lunches

Sloppy Joe (with eye stickers)
with Snap Pea Crisps, watermelon and strawberry wafers.

Hotdog Octupus(es? octupi?) over spirals mac/cheese
grape kabobs and alphabet Cheez-Its
Miss C said "Ew!" at the octupus(es?) at first, then she found out they were made of hotdogs, then she thought it was the best thing ever!

"Fish" sandwich (with turkey and cheese) over "seaweed" (julienne cucumber)
"fish food" (raisins w/fruit snacks), watermelon "star fish", 
cheese bubbles (mozz cheese), and Rainbow Goldfish crackers 
Miss C absolutely loved this lunch. She asked for it the next

My lunch was leftover chicken fried rice. 
Fried rice is a great way to use up day-old rice, leftover grilled chicken, and throw in mixed veggies for a quick 1-dish meal!

"dog bone" sandwiches, Scooby bone graham crackers,
Scooby fruit snacks, grapes
Miss C asked to have the "fish" lunch again the next day, so I used the same sandwich ingredients and shaped it differently. She informed me later that she preferred the fish shape because it tasted better--as if the shape has anything to do with taste! Funny kid!


  1. My lunch jealousy continues. And everyone knows fish sandwiches DO taste better than bones. :-)

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
