How’s your weekend going?

Are you doing anything super fun?

I hope you are, unless you’re into relaxing this weekend and in that case, I hope that’s what you’re doing.

My husband and kids are currently in our living room watching video game previews :/ so I thought it would be a good time to share another work lunch that I made for my husband.

It was either that or folding a load of laundry and I think we all know how excited I get over that chore.

His Easy Lunchbox contains a turkey and romaine wrap on a whole wheat tortilla that I smeared with a little horseradish/dijon mayo, a few fresh raspberries, some homemade pickles, and a couple of apple slices that I smeared with Wild Friends Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter, dipped in dark chocolate, and sprinkled with seat salt. Yum!

I made his wrap when the tortilla was cold so it ripped.

This is real life and in real life, wraps rip.

Say that three times fast.

If apples aren’t your thing or maybe you’re just in the mood to trash things up this weekend, have I got an idea for you…

 

chocolate chips

Just smear some peanut butter (I used Wild Friends Sesame Cranberry Peanut Butter) on a few chips, dip them in melted dark chocolate, and then sprinkle a little sea salt on top. Pop them in the fridge or freezer to set, and munch away!

I really like the addition of the dried fruit in these so if you have any, chop it up and add it to the peanut butter before you smear it on.

If you’re using a smooth peanut butter, you can just stir it into the chocolate, dip, set, and you’ll be good to go.

Happy snacking!

20 Aug

If you were a regular follower of this blog last school year, you might remember how I would gripe from time to time about how early the kindy kids ate lunch. 10:45! That’s bonkers early.

I thought for sure that Cam would be eating lunch later this year being in a higher grade.

Nope.

She eats lunch even earlier than last year!

Only by a minute, but still. That is super early to be eating lunch. And they do not get snack time.

Needless to say, the girl has been coming home hungry every day.

Although she has been eating more of her lunches instead of messing around during lunch time like last year.

So that’s a plus.

 


For lunch today I spread Laughing Cow cheese on a spinach wrap and then filled it with sliced carrot, bell pepper, and a piece of salami.

I made this for her over the summer and she wasn’t crazy about it. Most likely because I used veggie cream cheese. The Laughing Cow cheese made a big difference in flavor. Much better!

I rolled her wrap up nice and snug and I sliced it into bite-sized pieces for her so it would be easy to eat.

She also had pretzel crisps, grapes, and Annie’s Bunny Friends cookies.

Look! It’s a Lunch.

Don’t worry, my kids have been getting lunch over the summer.

I just take a more relaxed approach to lunch these days. Nothing worth photographing, really.

Most days, they get a sandwich or leftovers and some fruit. I don’t cut it up with cute cutters or put picks in it and it doesn’t go into a cute box.

In fact, most days they’re lucky if it even goes on a plate. Who needs more dishes to wash?

I made some veggie wraps for dinner over the weekend and they were fabulous so I had to remake them with one minor change for my little veggie loving lady.

And since they turned out so darn cute, I had to put them in Cam’s new bento box and then blog about them – of course.

In this lunch are 6 veggie wrap slices, an organic gala apple wedge, some fruit and veggie shreds from Plum Kids Organics, and a flapjack from our Graze box.

To make the veggie wraps:

Spread cream cheese or tzatziki on a wrap or tortilla (I used veggie cream cheese & a spinach wrap)

Then layer on some spring greens or baby spinach, thinly sliced red bell pepper, shredded or thinly sliced carrots, sliced avocado, and a thin sprinkle of shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese.

Cam’s wrap didn’t have avocado because she hasn’t really developed a taste for it yet but yours should because it’s delicious!

Feel free to switch up the veggies to suit your taste.
