Yikes, we are waaaay behind on the lunch posts! February was just a crazy month around here. It started when I went away for a business trip and missed a Tuesday warp up post, then everything else in life got behind schedule too. I’m finally just now catching up so this week I’m going to marathon post all the lunches from February… except for those that I didn’t photograph while I was away.
Another reason lunch posts have been delayed is that I’m working on THREE big posts/announcements that I plan to share in March. So watch out for those as they’re posted this month. For now, on to the lunches of the first week of February!
The first school day of February kicked off with our normal carrots and cucumber, plus some leftover chicken from Sunday night. For sweets, Kiddo1 had grapes and his favorite, applesauce.
We changed up our veggies a bit on Tuesday, with broccoli instead of cucumber. Broccoli is still not Kiddo1’s favorite, but he will eat it if it’s given in small quantities. For protein he had ham, our go-to when there’s no leftover meat (because typically Monday nights are meatless). And rounding out the left side is a small mandarin orange and a chunk of vegan dark chocolate truffle from Missionary Chocolates.
Wednesday is leftover taco day! This week we had turkey tacos on Tuesday night, so Kiddo1 gets a leftover one with a bit of lettuce. He usually takes cucumber on his tacos as well, but we ran out! Hence the servings of broccoli two days in a row. But we tried to compensate with more grapes and applesauce.
More chicken for lunch on Thursday, plus carrots and another mandarin orange (we must have still been out of cucumbers). More applesauce AND a vegan mint chocolate truffle from Missionary Chocolates. Must have been something special going on…
Friday was Kiddo1’s 12th birthday! So he got something very special for lunch – a sandwich! He hasn’t had a sandwich for the whole school year. I usually make bread but it is more for toast, it’s not a real soft sandwich bread. And I haven’t made any bread since the New Year, mostly due to lack of motivation. But we found this amazing bread at the store from a company called New Cascadia. Their bread is pretty much just millet flour and yeast so we can eat it! And it is soft and wonderful. So Kiddo1 got a surprise birthday sandwich with ham, romaine, and cucumber slices. I think it looked pretty good! He also had some carrot sticks and a homemade birthday brownie.
Tomorrow we’ll catch up on the third week of February (skipping the second week because that’s when I was away). More to come!
