All of Eliana's lunches this week were quick to put together -- 15 minutes or less for each lunch. And that is including washing and cutting of fruits and vegetables, and at least one interruption ;) I took all these pictures with my phone, literally the moment before I put it into Eliana's lunch bag, pack her backpack and we are out the door! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen I shared these lunches throughout the week :)
On Monday Eliana had green grapes with a clover bento pick, cucumbers, a shamrock sandwich filled with wowbutter and Enjoy Life Foods mini chocolate chips and dried cranberries (in the small green container) packed in her EasyLunchbox.
I gave her clover cucumbers all week because 1) I had a huge cucumber in the fridge, 2) Eliana loves cucumber, and 3) it is a great fun way to get rid of the peel while making a fun shape :)
For Tuesday's school lunch she had cucumbers, cut up cheese sticks with two clover bento picks, goldfish in a mini dipper and a chocolate soy butter sandwich with a shamrock cut out. The bread shamrock cut out was eaten by me.. usually I leave it in the lunch but I was hungry when I was putting her lunch together ;)
On Wednesday Eliana had green grapes, cucumbers, Lucky Charms cereal, cheese, and crackers, all packed in her EasyLunchboxes :) I only buy Lucky Charms cereal once a year, for right around St. Patrick's day. We barely eat one fourth of the box and then it gets forgotten in the back of the cabinet LOL. But I just have to get it! It is just a fun cereal and treat for this time of year and I know Eliana always looks forward to it!
For Thursday's lunch Eliana had cucumbers, Granny Smith apple slices (with the core cut out with a shamrock cutter), and a Leprechaun sandwich. The Leprechaun is a wowbutter and mini chocolate chip sandwich decorated with cheese and Enjoy Life Foods mini chocolate chip eyes. The hat I cut out of a spinach tortilla and added cheese decorations. I "glued" the pieces together with honey. The Leprechaun has some Lucky charms cereal hidden in the small green container :)
Last year I made some fun and simple St. Patrick's Day lunches too! You can see them HERE :)
Friday, today, is Eliana's birthday! So no St. Patrick's day lunch. It will be a fun birthday lunch instead! I can't believe my baby is SIX years old!! :)
