Lunch with Emma and Lucy {week 10}

lazybentos-banner

The week of Halloween was absolutely crazy because Emma had Spirit Week at school, and every day was something different. And then Lucy had a parade and party at her school. And then, of course, Halloween itself was insane. So I was lucky to throw together a few lunches for the girls that week.

I did let Emma buy lunch on Monday due to little kid sickness in the house.

Tuesday

Emma had half a banana decorated with LaLaLoopsy stickers, celery with almond butter in a panda cup, pocket sandwiches with almond butter in a jumbo silicone cup and cinnamon apple straws packed in a Good Lunch Box.

Lucy had pocket sandwiches with homemade jelly, cinnamon apple straws, salami, and green grapes with an orange crayon pick packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

Oh man, I am so far behind on posting our lunches. I don’t know about you, but these past couple of weeks have been crazy busy with Halloween costume prep, parties, birthdays and activities galore!

I only made two lunches the week of Oct 13-17 because they had fall break for 2 days and Emma’s school festival one day, but I only took a picture of Lucy’s lunch. See? I told you these past few weeks had been crazy.

Tuesday

Lucy had a koala jelly sandwich, pretzel sticks, lettuce and tomatoes with ranch dressing in a little panda cup, and cut-up watermelon with a bear pick packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

Another week of lunches for my sweet girls … I didn’t grocery shop much this week, because I was trying to use up what was in our pantry and fridge, so these lunches aren’t very exciting. And some are pretty carb-heavy. {Whoops}

Monday

Emma had pepperoni in a jumbo silicone cup, veggie straws, an apple {we hit 2 apple farms in a week, so you will see a LOT of apples this week}, and Back to Nature chocolate granola packed in a Good Lunch Box.

Lunch with Emma and Lucy {week 5}

lazybentos-banner

Henry is feeling better and FINALLY sleeping, so I had better luck with this week’s lunches. I also printed off lunch idea lists from two of my favorite bento’ers – Meet the Dubiens and Wendolonia – and then I asked Emma to circle the items she would like to take for lunch. I learned quite a bit! And this is also a good way to mix things up when you get bored.
