Happy Monday! We did pb&j sandwiches in various shapes. E got a gingerbread man since her class went hunting for a gingerbread man at school to learn about all the important places. K got a large heart shape and some small flowers. They both have grapes filling the bottom of their containers, baby carrots and "Texas" shaped pretzels (cowboy boots and the shape of the state). Only in Texas can you find pretzels themed to the state in a regular grocery store. Silly, but fun! E also got some stacked american cheese shapes. They both had a few mini cookies in a bag on the side.
I did a great job with K's box. It was filled to the brim. E's was a little lean as she doesn't have the same appetite. She got the one gingerbread man sandwich. I could only fit one on her bread, so it was more than half a sandwich. That seems to be what she's eating these days, so I didn't want to make another sandwich just to "fill the box." I tried to build up the cheese stack to hold it all in place and add variety, but I'm sure it was all tossed around.
K ate every last crumb. She even ate the granola bar I threw in. E ate the sandwich, cheese,some of the carrots and a few pretzels. It looked like all the grapes were left, with tree carrots and the rest of the pretzels. So, I was right about not making more sandwich for E. The pretzels were soggy after school. Wonder if they were that way at lunchtime or if it was because they were rolling around with grapes and carrots, both with water content. Things that make me go, "hmmmm..."
