Today's lunch: carrots and celery with pimento cheese for dipping, golden kiwi and cherries; curried chicken salad; more vanilla pudding; Cheez-its, kashi bar, frozen organic yogurt, water. I don't mind saying this was a very rough morning. We had a late soccer game in Columbus and none of us saw our beds before 11pm. And now that Karate Kid's bus shows up at 7am, well, it's a good thing that half of his lunch was already packed and in the fridge. Whew!

Today's menu: ham, pimento cheese, and romaine in a tortilla, sharp cheddar wedges, olives, wheat thins, carrots and grape tomatoes. Black grapes and graham cracker pretzels. Homemade vanilla pudding (from milk he *insisted* tasted "off" despite being well within expiration date). Organic yogurt tube that had been frozen, mini blueberry muffins, water.

It's so hard to believe that Karate Kid is going into sixth grade! I'm getting ready for another year of packing lunches, but now it's for a tween boy with the appetite of a swarm of starving locusts! I'm going to try to put pictures of his lunches on this blog because it seems that there isn't a lot of information out there about pack lunches for teenagers. This year we're going to facing new challenges, between peer pressure and weaning out the cutesy stuff, I think I've got my work cut out for me.
School starts Wednesday. Stay tuned...
