The Little Munchkin’s Lunchables

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.

    How cute and yummy! I’m very amazed to see this packed lunch. ^^,*) I would love to have this kind of idea! I hope I can prepare some thing like this in a stainless steel tiffin carrier. It would be really nice if that will happen because stainless steel containers are more safe and reliable to use than plastic bags. Anyway thank you for sharing this…=)

    Thanks, Keith! The blushing effect is from the sakura denbu. :)

    Hi Pinky! I’m not really a morning person which is why I chose to just go the extra mile and deliver Abby’s homemade lunches during her lunch time. I volunteer at her school anyway so.. ;)

    Hi Jen! I got the cute sauce bottle at The Container Store…guess which section…the cosmetics/travel section! Mind you, it’s BPA free, making them safe for food! I got small containers of different sizes for dips and sauces at that section of the store. Abby loves her tiny sauce/dip containers. ;)
