Last week of school!

Miss C's last week of school was 2 weeks ago... it was also her birthday week. (I will have the birthday stuff in the next post). She will be going to daycare during the summer, so I don't have to pack her lunches. Its only week 2 of summer break and I already miss packing her lunches. She misses school too. And since I'm not doing her lunches, I've been slacking in my own lunches. I have to come up with fun stuff this summer so this blog doesn't get stale. I'm thinking about posting some recipes, summer themed lunches (zoo, beach/pool, Disney, etc) and prepping for the next school year (how to get started, my supply stash and where to buy, hints/tips. etc)

Ladybug lunch: turkey sandwich, banana, 
cheese stick, grapes & fruit snacks

The "I-have-nothing-in-the-fridge" lunch:
cucumbers, grapes, triscuits w/cheese and pepperoni, and lime jello

Last day of school lunch: Sunbutter&jelly sandwich sushi
Wheat Thins, cheese, pineapples and blueberries

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. :)
