Other morsels (9/8 – 9/14)

Last week I put a lot of effort into the various garden bento lunches I tried out. Here’s what rounded out the week.

I customized cheese, crackers, ham, and cucumbers for my two boys with different tastes.

Ham and cream cheese green onion wrap, crackers, cheese stars, watermelon, cucumbers, and sunflower butter celery sticks.

We made a Costco run last week, which meant the “chicken rule” was in effect. The rule simply states that if we don’t have anything else planned for dinner, you must buy a rotisserie chicken, even if it’s not on the list (that’s the tricky part). Pumpkin’s lunch contained the chicken leg. The boys love their meat. They genetically inherited a love of gnawing chicken off the bone from their father’s side of the family.

I tried to get creative with the guitar and “C” cut-outs. There may be something to the idea of slicing up the shape, but the the technique definitely needs refinement.

Pumpkin (age 4.5) was in the mood for another Cat in the Hat lunch, so we made the Cat and the treehouse from the PBS show. It was fun to do it with him and to help him think of ways to make the lunch a little different than last time.
