More of this weeks lunches

Here is the past couple of days.  

Tuesday
Sometimes things work out the way you want and sometimes they don't.  That is what happened today:


It is supposed to be fall leaves.  Cheese maple leaves, Rice with a maple leaf colored in it (took my cutter and then colored inside of it)  The drawing on the turkey is supposed to be a tree with leaves falling.  Well all in all he ate it, and liked it... that is all the matters right


Wednesday


Big stinky leaf.  When G was little he used to pick up big leaves and run around calling them stinky leaves... not sure why, its not like they smelled... but anyway, I made him one.
Big leaf  - turkey and cheese sandwhich
Apple sauce, with some sprinkles in the shape of leaves to put on top.
Carrots of course


Thursday

Not sure what this lunch is called... How about Mom was tired and this was easy and looked cute!


Little Tiger cheese sandwich over some bacon, mandarin oranges, M & Ms, and carrots.

A little something for me!

Ok this post has nothing to do with lunches, or even G.  It is something I was asked to try for me!

Valentia Skin Care - Even Glow Vitamin C Serum



I was given a full size bottle to try out, but my review is all me :)

This stuff is chock full of great ingredients that help fight aging
Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Green Tea Extract, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, and Resistem 

I was stoked to try it out.

Here is what I really think

It smells AMAZING!  That was the first thing I thought when I used it for the first time.   It felt really good to apply to my skin, it didn't leave any sticky, or slimy feeling on my skin or even my hands.  I was able to apply makeup just after letting it dry/soak in for a few seconds.  

After a few uses, I really did notice a softer feeling to my skin.  I  just really starting to notice some aging lines and spots on my face in the past year.  I feel like since I have been using this product, I do see the lines getting smaller and the overall color of my face more even.  

I can't wait to keep using it.  I love putting it on right out of my shower!

Do you want to get some.  It sells on Amazon for $35 dollar, which in my opinion for what you get is a great deal.  It seems to me to last a long time....as long as you don't drop it on the ground like I did and lost some, even without that I still have a lot to keep trying.

Go run and get it.  In my opinion it is a great Vitamin C anti-aging serum.

Simple Halloween Lunch

G is going as an ewok for his "main" Halloween costume.  So he asked for one in his lunch, you all know how I feel about my artistic talents, but I did my best


The Ewok is drawn on some turkey, then we have his favorite Halloween animal the bat as cheese.  Some crackers and cookie round up that side.  Mandarin oranges, and carrots, because they are both orange. 

And I have to brag here he is in his "day" costume...

Hallowe'en Hop 2014

Well even though I have been doing a Halloween theme all month, I still really wanted to be part of the Bento Bloggers and Friends Hallowe'en Hop.  I love to be a part of so much awesomeness.  I hope you all get some great inspiration from the blogs, I know I will.

So today I tried to think of something that G hasn't had yet.  And my inspiration came from looking around my own home.  At the Halloween party we went to on Sunday, I had the kids make this cute vampire hand print.

I thought well I can recreate something like that for his lunch, so Dracula was born (sort of)





Dracula is on a bed of rice, and then he is made from... head.. bread, and cheese (provolone and cheddar) for hair, eyes and mout. Boday - cheddar cheese, the collar of his costume is also cheese. The bow tie is a bit of strawberry tootsie roll, formed into a bow.  On the side of the container.. Eyeball grapes and a cookie, Carrots with turkey rolled up and Frankenstein making an appearance.  It is not exactly as my mind imagined it, but I am quite happy on how it turned out.

Have fun on the rest of the hop.

Pumpkin Patch and Scarcrow

Last night we had spaghetti for dinner.  As soon as we were done I slapped the leftover noodles into an Easy Lunch box and stuck it in the fridge.  (G will eat the noodles cold, no prob).  Didn't really know what I was going to do with them, but figured that this morning.


Pumpkin patch.  cut out some cheese pumpkins (colored the noodles green). Rolled up the turkey and drew a scarecrow on it.  Carrots fill up the rest of the pumpkin cup.  Grapes and a cookie round out his lunch.  (he does have a yogurt too).

Now to come up with an idea for tomorrow ----- stay tuned for a blog hop

Star Wars

Well G chose an Ewok for his Halloween costume this year.  He got to wear it twice this weekend to his schools Trunk or Treat and the annual "baby" group party. (none of them are babies anymore)
So I thought it would be fun to have a little star wars lunch today








Cheese sandwiches, Yoda and Darth Vader, turkey space ship and stars. Grapes, cookie, carrots and more turkey.

Here is my boo at Trunk or Treat

Haunted House with Moon

Man I didn't think trying to keep lunches a tad bit more simple would be so hard.  I have so many great picks and extras for Halloween, its so hard not to use them.  UGH....

You can't even really tell what my lunch is today...


It's a haunted house, with bats and the man in the moon...



House and bats drawn (badly) on some bread, the moon is cheese (ha). The cookie is there, becuase frankly that is where it fit...  More moon cheeses, carrots and turkey rolled up (it would of been great with my spooky pick, oh well soon  I will try again).

Hearbreak and still going

Yesterday we had a parent conference with G's teacher, and it came up again that he has been getting in trouble at lunch for "playing" with his food.  It was even suggested that I do something different and give him a regular sandwich.  Well I was devastated... this is what I do, this is what I love to do for him.  I know he likes it too, because after talking to him and telling him I had to stop, he was very sad. 

So, after a sleepless night, I decided not to stop.  I will be cutting back, they may not be as elaborate (as you see today), but this is a bonding thing for me and him and its important to me.  I am just hoping that this doesn't cause him to have a bad time at school.  Wish me luck.

So today we have a very toned down lunch.


Left over ravoli and meat ball in his thermos.  In the "snack" container.. Cracker, cookie, apples, carrots and Ghost cut cheese (that was me being a rebel, as I had told the teacher I would stop and hadn't emailed her yet to tell her I wasn't )

This journey may be a rough one this year, so hang in there with me.  I do have to give a little shout out to my friend at Bento Bloggers & Friends, for their kind words of support and making me see that I do have a choice :)
