I am happy to report that I am no longer as harassed in the morning as I no longer prepare my daughter’s lunch in time for school drop-off. I just bring my daughter’s lunch to school in time for her lunch break. ;) Am I smart or what? Hee hee. It’s been a while since I posted photos of what I’ve been making for my kindergartener’s school lunches. I may have three decent photos to share.
Baked 2-Cheese Angel Hair Pasta
My daughter loved this a lot! She ate all the strawberries, too! The pretzels, however, she didn’t lay a finger on. :D To be honest, I placed them in the lunch container because I can’t find anything else to put in that slot. Hee hee. Abby’s been a very hearty eater the past couple of weeks and I am ever so glad. :)
(Blushing) Bourbon Chicken Onigiri
This was Abby’s lunch the very Monday after my Mom’s surprise birthday party. Why? Because we had a ton of Bourbon Chicken courtesy of Asian Too (Thanks so much again, Bet!). I ought to make something like this again next week in time for Valentine’s Day. ;)
Fried Zesty Chicken Sushi
I posted the recipe for Deep-Fried Zesty Chicken a few weeks ago. Leftovers usually are given a make-over and end up in Abby’s lunch bag. Hee hee. My daughter loves friend chicken (who doesn’t?!) but she won’t eat it with rolls or rice (at least not in school!). The only way my daughter would eat rice in school is if it were in sushi form, thus, fried chicken sushi. A mother’s got to do what a mother’s got to do. :D
As much as I possibly can, my little girl eats home-cooked lunches in school. What can I say? I have fun making my daughter’s lunch in the same way some people have fun playing with their ps3. But on rare occasions when I’m feeling overly lazy, I let her have “tray”, that’s Kindergarten lingo for cafeteria food.
