I hurt my back on Monday, so it was a struggle to get anything done for a few days. I let Emma buy lunch at school and just made Lucy’s lunch. She had a ham and cheese roll-up with a red crayon pick, shredded cheese in a silicone muffin cup, a dinosaur-shaped tortilla, strawberries with a crazy eye pick and Cascadian Farms cinnamon cereal in a muffin cup packed in a frog bento box.

Lunch with Emma and Lucy {week 6}

lazybentos-banner

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.

Lucy had ham in a jumbo silicone muffin cup, an apple burrito with a penguin pick, cheerios, lettuce and grape tomatoes with ranch dressing in a cute panda cup with a seal pick packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

— I decided that my phone pictures were really not working for the blog, so I decided to put forth the effort of taking pictures with my actual camera starting with Thursday’s lunch. I’ll try to keep phone pics to a minimum this year. —

Thursday

Emma had little almond butter sandwiches in fun flower and heart shapes, goldfish crackers, a mandarin orange, granola with chocolate chips and raisins in rectangle silicone cups packed in our 2-tier froggy box.

Lucy had a field trip to the apple farm, so we had cheese toast and fresh apples for lunch.

Friday

Emma bought lunch at school. If she has a good week at school, it’s her one day to go crazy with cheese pizza and ice cream!!

Have a great weekend …

I had a rough week with Henry being sick all week and not sleeping, so these lunches were miracles. Seriously.

Monday

I let Emma buy lunch at school, and she got yogurt, graham crackers, cheese stick and grapes. And now I remember why I don’t let her buy lunch very often – she always picks the vegetarian option! I could fix that lunch for way less than it costs there. ;)

Tuesday

Emma had bagel with cream cheese in a jumbo silicone muffin cup, pretzels in a rectangular silicone cup, yogurt covered raisins in an Easy Lunchboxes mini dipper, hello panda cookies and honeydew packed in a Good Lunch Box. This lunch was a little sweeter than I planned, but it was a crazy morning.

Another week of lunches for my girls! You will see that they have almost identical lunches, because Lucy always watches me make Emma’s lunches, and then she asks for the same thing.
