Weekly Lunch Wrap Up #22

Welcome to another weekly wrap up of last week’s school lunches! Here’s what Kiddo1 took to school last week…

Monday

We started off simple and basic on Monday. No meat leftovers from Sunday so Kiddo1 got some “sticks” of ham, along with carrots, cucumbers, a Mandarin orange, and strawberries (organic strawberries were on sale again – score!).

Tuesday

More ham on Tuesday – apparently we needed to cook more last week! But things around here have been super busy so I guess ham comes to the rescue again! More cucumbers on Tuesday, along with carrots – but this time they’re special yellow carrots! Another Mandarin orange and two Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

Wednesday

Leftover tacos on Wednesdays! This week we had ground pork with our tacos, and Kiddo1 likes his with romaine and cucumber on a soft organic corn shell. He also got purple carrots (we’re on a colorful carrot kick!), broccoli, apple slices, and a couple more Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

Thursday

For Thursday’s lunch Kiddo1 got leftover meatballs we made Wednesday night from more of the ground pork we got in our half pig share. He also had broccoli, carrots, cucumber, and some apple sauce.

On Friday there was no school, yay! And only one more week of lunches before Spring Break! See you next week!

Weekly Lunch Wrap Up #21

We’re back to regularly scheduled weekly lunch posts!

Monday

We started off the week with some strips of leftover chicken. We usually eat a whole chicken every other week or so, and when we’ve had our fill we strip off all the leftover meat and make a broth with the bones. I love that our chickens do double-duty, or even triple-duty, for us – we get dinner, some lunch leftovers, and tasty broth too! But back to this lunch… Kiddo1 also had his fairly standard carrots and cucumber, along with some strawberries (organic strawberries were on sale last week – it’s almost strawberry season!).

Tuesday

No leftovers from Meatless Monday so Kiddo1 had ham, more carrots and cucumbers, a Mandarin orange, and Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

Wednesday

Beef tacos again this week, since they’re Kiddo1’s favorite. Plus more carrots and cookies! A fairly standard Wednesday lunch.

Thursday

Kiddo1 finished off the leftover chicken for Thursday’s lunch, plus had a bunch of veggies and fruits – carrots, broccoli, cucumber, and strawberries. And of course the Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies are not to be forgotten!

Friday

Finishing off the week by finishing off a few things from the fridge – the last of the carrots, some more ham, another Mandarin orange, and  a special request for raisins. And those are the lunches for this week!

 

So after much teasing last week about the “three special announcements” for March, I’ll finally have the first one published this weekend. And it won’t involve lunch foods at all!

Weekly Lunch Wrap Up #20 (Catch Up #3)

Whew, the last catch up post is here! This one covers the last week of February. Next lunch post will be at its regularly scheduled day on Tuesday. And of course, since I haven’t mentioned it already (ha!) there are three big posts/announcements coming in March too! Keep checking the blog or drop your email in the “Follow” box at the right to stay updated.

Kiddo1 hasn’t had a lettuce wrap in a long time! We had some leftover pork roast from Sunday night so I figured wrapping it up would be the best way to get him to eat it. There’s also diced cucumber in the wrap. On the right we have carrots sticks and a couple Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

Tuesday

Once again we were out of meat leftovers for Tuesday’s lunch (because Monday nights are meatless) but we do almost always have our back-up: ham! We buy Beeler’s uncured ham. Kiddo1 also had his usual carrots and cucumbers, plus a nice-sized little Pink Lady apple and a couple Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies. It was a chocolate chip cookie week around here!

Wednesday

No leftovers again on Wednesday, this time it was because we went out to eat on Tuesday night – something we rarely do anymore! But it was my birthday and the family wanted to celebrate, so we did a bunch of research to find a place where Kiddo1 could eat foods that he would both enjoy and wouldn’t give him tummy troubles. We found a place willing to make some plain chicken and french fries for him – it was so good we didn’t have any to take home for lunch the next day! So instead of more ham I cut up these meatsticks that everyone in the family loves. The are beef and organ – yes organ – meat, super good for you and you don’t even know it is in there! Kiddo1 was a little weirded out at first but he loves them – and loves freaking out his friends a little when they see the package. Kiddo1 also had a bunch of good-looking veggies and some more Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

Thursday

On Wednesday we had to have tacos (since we missed them on Tuesday night) – a week can’t go by without tacos! For Kiddo1 we had beef tacos again (two weeks in a row!), along with his favorite toppings, romaine and cucumber. He also had more carrots and cookies.

Friday

On Friday, Kiddo1 had more sausage from the pork buy we got in February. Our whole freezer is full of nothing but pork right now, so we’ll be eating a lot of it! Completing this lunch are more carrots, cucumbers, another mandarin orange, and the rest of the Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies.

See you with more lunches on Tuesday! Have a great weekend!
