I have, since then, tried to be fun and creative, while still healthy, with the lunches I pack for my daughter. Some of her favorites, which have also been approved by her classmates, are:
Nutella and Peanut butter tortilla rollups
German Pancake Cubes rolled in powdered sugar
Trail Mix (Cranberries, banana chips, choco chips, pretzels, and almonds)
Cheese and ham cubes with toothpicks to spear them with
Cold Tortilla Pizzas
Cold Whole Wheat French Toast strips with small Tupperware of syrup to dip them in
Breakfast Chocolate Cake (It is very cool to be a mom who gives cake for lunch as well as breakfast)
And veggies cut in all sorts of different ways
Alas, this morning I failed once again. She opened her lunch box and proclaimed, "Mom, I don't eat corn muffins, remember?" ARRRGH! I would have had her make her own lunch at this point, except there was nothing else to make it with. So, being the good mom I am, I said, "Just take them anyway and try trading them for something else". Hopefully some other mom out there packed something cool for their kid, and hopefully that kid will like corn muffins better than their cool food and take pity on my poor starving daughter.
SHS update: Jumped, made bed, started moving and was surprised to find that I was sore from the piddly 7 minutes of moving from yesterday. I must be way out of shape. Moved for a good 13 minutes because DSSH was taking his sweet time in the shower. Feelin' good.
