That's a really long explanation for "I don't have my planned post ready, so I'm substituting this one."
I pack lunches daily during the school year. The children do not like the offerings at the school cafeterias, which is fine by me. When I can, I try to make Jazz's fun and exciting. She's at an age that lunch is still fun. The boys, on the other hand, just want to fill their gullets. I love checking Pinterest for fun lunch ideas, but most of them are a little too labor intensive for me. Then, I realized that my good friend Jannette was blogging her lunch ideas. Check out her cute bear, summer farewell, and hilarious manic man lunches. Using her ideas as a jumping off point, I created lunch for Jazz:
She's got a fishy shaped sandwich with mini sandwich bubbles, carrot scales and candy eye; goldfish; yogurt with ABC sprinkles and grapes. Other favorite sides for her lunches are frozen mango chunks, cookie dough bites, and orange slices. She knows not to expect it daily, but she sure is thankful when she opens her lunch box to a cool surprise!
