Day 320

Day 320 - It's A Christmas Story!  Come on, you know you secretly love the leg lamp!  This is my desperately need to go shopping A Christmas Story lunch!  Today D has homemade yogurt, blueberries, a toasted pb & j sandwich and some Kashi granola.

I used my Leg Lamp cookie cutter to make an impression in the bread before I toasted it.  Then I just went over the impression with a food safe marker after it was toasted.

Day 319

Day 319 - DIY lunchable.  Ham, american cheese, a couple of cookies and a cereal bar cut out with a holly cutter and some melba toast rounds.

Here is D's lunch sitting on top of her new drawstring lunch bag.  This lunch bag was a gift from my Bento Bloggers and Friends Secret Santa.  She sent us a box full of bento goodies but D couldn't wait to try out her new Hello Kitty bag.

Here it is all tied up and ready for school!  So beautiful isn't it??  My "Secret" Santa also sells these in her Etsy store!

Day 318

Day 318 - Today's lunch was inspired by Chef Corey and Momables.  I had some leftover chicken in the fridge and if not all the ingredients then some reasonable substitutions!  I mixed some homemade yogurt with Ranch Dressing seasoning.  I use Penzey's.  I probably used 1/2c of yogurt and a teaspoon of seasoning.  Then I added in some Real Bacon Bits.  I like to keep those on hand and use them quite often.  They are much more lean than regular bacon and pack huge bacon flavor!  I tossed in the shredded chicken and mixed them up.  I spread a thin layer of cream cheese on the wrap to keep it from getting soggy.  I put 1/2 the chicken mixture (probably just under 1/2 c) on one of the short ends of the wrap.  Topped it with a generous hand full of alfalfa sprouts,  a light sprinkle of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and rolled it up tight.  I also made some blue cheese dressing for her to dip her celery sticks in.  I just mixed together some homemade yogurt, blue cheese crumbles and enough milk to thin it out a bit.  She also has a tangerine.

Day 317

Day 317 - Today D has a Lunch Punch Elephant ham sandwich, string cheese, xmas tree cereal bars, homemade yogurt with a green sugar xmas tree and clementines.

I left the cookie cutter in when I took the picture because sometimes when I remove the cookie cutter the design kind of goes kaput.  Today it worked out pretty well.  I removed the cutter and it still looked like a tree!

Day 316

Day 316 -  Breakfast for lunch!!  I picked up some Blueberry Streussel bread at Target the other day.  It was Archer Farm Brand.  I highly recommend it.  It wasn't super sweet so it was perfect for french toast!  So for lunch today D has blueberry french toast, a beef slider, mini dipper of syrup, homemade yogurt topped with blueberries and a clementine.
