Tuesday:  No School Day My lunch: an exciting can of Campbell soup and fruit  Wednesday:  C's lunch:  hardboiled egg, wheat thins,  cauliflower & ranch, and watermelon chunks My lunch: Shepherd's Pie, cauliflower, and watermelon  (my hubby made the shepherds pie with a thick layer of cheese on top, I ended up peeling it off!) Thursday: C's lunch: rice w/peas, chicken, watermelon It seems like there's not a lot of food... the rice is packed into teddy bear rice molds, there is about almost a cup of rice for both molds!  my lunch: same lunch but I added a little bit of chocolate, packed in an Easy Lunchbox! :) I had been craving sweets at work, so I packed just half a bar of chocolate to control the portions, otherwise, I'd eat the whole bar! Friday:   It

from Cali with love!

My cousin and aunt lives in San Francisco. There's a store called Daiso there. Almost all my virtual bento friends talk about this store and how awesome it is to find reasonably priced lunch/bento supplies. Check out the awesome bento loot: Thank you, Alexis and Tita Alma! :) ♥

C's Valentines: bouncy ball with a store-bought Tinkerbell card Valentines snack to share I made more 2-layer Jello last night and cut 20 hearts this morning C's lunch: chocolate Sunbutter sandwich with goldfish crackers, fruit salad (w/extra cherries) and cottage cheese My lunch : turkey wrap  w/goldfish and cherry-less fruit cocktail

I am in LOVE with her Valentine Swirl Bread. So hop on over to her blog, check her out, hop on the next featured Valentine's lunch, and eventually, you'll come back to me! :) edited: OH!!! and I forgot to add...

Go Giants!

The Super Bowl game is this weekend.   I don't follow football much. I'm more of a baseball fan.  (Is it Cubs season yet? Because maybe this is the year!) My hubby is a Bears fan... but... this weekend, we are rooting for the NY Giants. See, my husband's cousin's husband (cousin-in-law?) plays center for the Giants.  GO GIANTS! GO DAVID! C's lunch: Strawberry jelly sandwiches w/chocolate Sunbutter on the football pretzels, carrots w/ranch, and #64 in cheese.  (yep, I totally shamelessly name-dropped there.) 

Happy Groundhog Day

In honor of Groundhog Day...  C's lunch: G-hog is a sloppy joe sandwich, crackers, carrots/ranch, and strawberry applesauce. (G-hog is a little beaver-ish. I had no idea how to turn a bun into a groundhog.  It's just something I whipped up in less than 15 minutes.) my lunch: similar sans applesauce with Babybel cheese.
