August 20th

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!

August 19th, First Day of School

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 a whole new world of packing lunches, putting together a meal for a growing man.

Gearing Up, 2015-Style

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...
