Beyonce For Lunch

Warning: The lunch is very kid friendly.. the links are up to your discretion.
Tomorrow's lunch is a salad, with a flower shaped hard boiled egg (the center is a
cheddar circle), Beyonce is painted on cheddar, there are carrots,
dressing, and half and apple too.  

Tomorrow's Lunch is inspired by my all time favorite Blogger,
Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess! 
She moved recently, and Beyonce lost a leg.

And of course, anytime she posts about Beyonce I always end up with 
this song by The Merry Wives of Windsor (NOT for children)
stuck in my head... 

And yes, I will be eating this song at work.. no I won't be explaining it to
my students beyond, yes, it's a chicken!  We recently finished a farm
unit, so it's perfect!  I'm sure my students will love it!
(and yes, I will be giggling in my mind)

Friday is a Two-fer day for me.. as in "Two-For-The-Price-Of-One"
I have a lunch to take to work with me, and a dinner to take to class with me.

Lunch is in my two tier Strawberry box from Daiso, it's an egg and cheese sandwich,
salad with Creamy Avocado Cilantro salad dressing, and an apple.

Dinner is asparagus grilled with lemon, quinoa with black beans and corn,
half an orange, a bit of salad with more of that dressing 
(it's my first time making it,if I like it, I'll share the recipe), 
and a fiber one brownie tossed in for an easy peasy dessert.

Cheerful Lunch

I had a crazy day today, not a bad day, just a really crazy one.
We had quite a bit of rain last night.. and my classroom has a new leak.
A bad one.. 
Thankfully my program manager is awesome, and we got things moved.
Now they can start getting the water out of the carpet.
Thankfully I rearranged my classroom during the break and moved my
desk just enough that my printer and copier were not under the leak.

So... tomorrow's lunch is a cheerful lunch.
What is more cheerful than polka-dots?    
Even my fruit cup lid declares the lunch to be cheerful.

Lunch is an egg, veggie sausage, and avocado wrap (that I will pop into the microwave).
Spinach salad with thousand island dressing (hiding under the lid), and baco bits, topped
with cheddar dots (of course!). And some kiwi dots to eat (with a dot pick).

Have a great Tuesday!

Back to Work

Spring Break is over.  I am both happy and sad.  I missed my kiddos,
but man, I could use a few more days!!!

I got home kind of late, so tomorrow's lunch fits in the packed in five minutes or less category!

I still wanted a bit of spring in my lunch, so I grabbed some cutters and a hole punch.

Lunch is the first of the sugar snap peas, a Trader Joe's meatless meatball sandwich
with some sauce for dipping and an orange.  I used a bit of cheddar to make two flowers and
a butterfly.  You might notice I do meatless meatball sandwiches often, 
they are a fast and easy standby!!
