My daughter attends kindergarten in the afternoon and therefore eats before she leaves...by 11:30am. Whether she needs a lunchbag or eats at home, her lunches are pretty uneventful, run-of-the-mill choices. Her lunchbag (Camp Rock edition) is usually packed with a homemade PB&J uncrustable (since our beloved PBJammerz were discontinued!) unless she needs a peanut free lunch, which then her meal of choice is crackers and cheese. If she's home, she'll occasionally request a grilled cheese or organic hot dog. She does, however, need a packed snack for school each day, which is either a "fruit wand" (kabob), crackers, a piece of fruit, or mandarin oranges. For a sweet choice, usually on Fridays, I'll pack an organic pop tart. (I love them myself!!)
Myself, however, I love to pack up my lovely Vera Bradley "Lets Do Lunch" bag any chance I get. I love to unwrap a sandwich packed in the "papery" meat packing paper. I don't know why, I just do! And here's one of my favorites to bring along: Roast beef, bacon, and bleu cheese wraps. With it I'll have a bag of "Munchos" (only ever on picnics) or kettle chips. Add in a big, thick homemade cookie of some sort, and a cold thermos of milk. Mmmmmm...
Too bad it's 2 degrees outside. I'm really in the mood to pack a picnic for the park!!
