Ice Skating Lunch

 We were lucky enough to make it along to the traveling ice rink that came through our town over the school holidays. Miss M did really well considering it was her first time on skates of any sort, and asked to go back the next day! Lucky for us that happened to be the last day otherwise I'm sure she would have asked to keep going back! To celebrate and to welcome her back to school for term 3 I made this simple lunch. Crackers, cheese & pepperoni, yoghurt with passionfruit, strawberries and. .  .


Vegemite sandwich topped with ham & cheese skate inspired by these cute ones I found on Lian Mama Obento. Milk in her Juice in the Box.

Easy Elsa Lunch

Miss M has decided to get on the Frozen bandwagon. She enjoyed the film when it first came out but she wasn't hit with the hysteria which followed which I must admit was nice. Now though, she has decided it's the best thing ever! This Easy Lunchbox is filled with pepperoni & cheese (crackers came later when I realised I forgot to pack them); strawberry & kiwi fruit snowflakes and Vegemite sandwich topped with cheat cheese art. Milk in her Juice in the Box. Not pictured the yoghurt pouch she took that day and water bottle too :-)

You can see where I smudged the cheese art and it didn't quite work - she looks like she's scowling. . . or maybe having a stroke o.O

Miss M didn't seem to notice - phew!

Normandy Chicken Leftover Lunch

 Another Mummy Lunch from my first week back at work. Rather than sticking to the traditional 3 part carb, 2 parts fruit/veg, 1 part protein I tried to stick more to the guidelines I had on a placemat a few years ago (I can't even remember which arm of the government I picked it up from and it seems to have been lost in the move :-( ). I aimed for 3 parts veg, 2 part carb (in this case mashed potato, so bonus veg - woohoo!) and 1 part protein.
I'm quite happy with how my 3D carrot flowers turned out too!

This is leftovers of the Normandy chicken with mash and baconed cauliflower bake that Mr Loving made for us. I love that he is enjoying cooking again!

Kinoko Lunchbox Fail

I've shared the first couple of lunches I took when I returned to work recently and thought I had better let you in on a rather disappointing turn of events. My Kinoko lunchbox quickly fell from favour on my third day back. My favourite pie (Bushman's Bazaman Beef) doesn't fit!!! I had to cut the crusts off and that's just not acceptable.

However fitting in a large (store bought) lamington may bring it close to redemption.
