TGIF! Lunch Round-Up For 2/12 – 2/15

We had a short week, thanks to one of two consecutive President’s Day holiday Mondays, so there are only four lunches to show you. 🙂

Tuesday, Jack brought two ham and cheese sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls, a handful of grape tomatoes, Snapea Crisps, apple wedges, tangerines, blueberries, and a few chocolate-covered rice krispies in his PlanetBox.

Wednesday, we again used the PlanetBox to bring steamed chicken and leek dumplings, pretzels, cucumbers, carrots, fruit, and a few little candies as a treat.

My Valentine’s Day lunch for Jack was actually kind of pitiful, but that’s because I was in a rush that morning. We packed a heart-shaped PB&J, honeydew, and Goldfish in our trusty EasyLunchbox.

Today, Jack bought lunch, but Derek stayed at preschool for lunch. I packed him, upon his request, two dinosaur PB&Js, berries, Goldfish, steamed broccoli, and 1/3 of a fun-size Twix bar in his PlanetBox.

Happy weekend, all!

  1. That dino sammie cutter is awesome, it makes great use of the entire piece of bread!

  2. What do you think the best way to keep apples from browning is?? I have tried fruit fresh but looking for another idea.

    • You know, I’ve actually never done anything to prevent browning, but even at the end of the day, they’re still pretty white. I don’t know if it’s the fact that they’re in a small space (less exposure to oxygen), but I have not had an issue w browning. When I’ve had to slice large quantities of apples for other purposes (to be dipped into caramel at a party, let’s say), I’ve soaked the slices in water w a few squirts of fresh lemon juice. That works well!

      • Thank you so much. That is so interesting. I will have to do an apple experiment at home in the various containers and see what happens. I always avoid them in lunches, maybe not anymore. Thanks for your tip 🙂

      • You’re welcome! Hope it works for you as it does for me. If not, give the lemon water soaking thing a try. 🙂 I soaked a ton of apple slices last Thanksgiving (was serving them with a caramel cheesecake dip as part of dessert table) for 2-3 hours before serving. At the end of the night, the apple slices that were remaining were still lily white, even though they’d been out for several hours!
