This week I almost didn’t post lunches. I don’t know what happened! I forgot to take a picture of Tuesday’s lunch and I think maybe another day’s photo got deleted? Or I forgot to take two days’ worth. I don’t remember which! But, I thought, I will still post them, mostly because I didn’t want to have a gap in weekly lunch posts! But also because it’s nice to see that people are human. And forgetting to take the picture is better than forgetting to make the lunch! I’m proud that we haven’t yet had to run a lunch over to school because we forgot it!
I wish that’s where the drama ended, but it doesn’t. When I actually remembered to take pictures, they were rushed and the lighting was super weird! It’s inspired me to step up my photography a bit, though, so not all hope is lost! I made a soft light so I can take better indoor pictures (there’s no daylight when I pack lunches). I think it turned out pretty good! I’ll post a tutorial of how you can make your own soft light later this week.
For now, lunches!
Not a bad way to start the week – a little ham, a little leftover quinoa. Our carrots and broccoli came straight from the neighborhood Farmer’s Market, yum! We also packed some vegan ranch dressing (apparently he just can’t eat the broccoli without it) and organic applesauce for dessert.
Leftover turkey stir fry, a “salad” of organic cucumbers, carrots, and broccoli with more vegan ranch. Organic red grapes for dessert.
Wednesday was going to be sweet – Kiddo1 had leftover tacos. Taco Tuesday is becoming a thing in our house, though, so you’ll see another leftover taco picture next week.
I’ve been able to sneak a salad into the lunches a few times now. I’m thinking it might be a regular occurrence, cause the plate comes home clean (and he says he eats it!). He does prefer the lighter lettuce though. This one is romaine and some leaf lettuce with ham and lemon cucumber. He also has the standard carrots and broccoli with some raisins for dessert.
Come back next week! It’s going to be awesome!
