Pizza Lunchables w/ LOTS of Snacks!

I've been accused (by my own children) of not packing enough food when I send in Homemade Pizza Lunchables for lunch so this time I was sure to send a LOT of snacks. I guess it's because those sandwich rounds and their fixin's take up a lot of valuable snack space, so I added an extra half-slice of sandwich round and went to my reusable, Earth-friendly and space saving containers for help. :)

Here's what I sent in yesterday, Wednesday, which also happens to be the day I go into do "Lunch Bunch" w/ Little Sis and 5 of her classmates. They sit with me in the classroom and eat their lunches while I read them books. Unfortunately, this rarely keeps them from yappin' away and commenting/questioning stuff every chance they get. haha.

In this lunch:
  1. Homemade Pizza Lunchables using Nature's Own Whole Wheat Sandwich Rounds (3 halves instead of my usual 2), Mama Mary's All-natural Pizza Sauce and Trader Joe's part skim shredded Mozzarella cheese
  2. A couple organic broccoli florets, a couple organic carrot sticks and a couple organic cauliflower florets with a side of ranch dressing
  3. Keebler Mini Fudge Stripe cookies
  4. Organic Applesauce in our Yummi Pouches
  5. Cheese and cracker sandwiches using Trader Joe's Cracker Rounds and MOMveeta cheese
  6. Not pictured: Cascadian Farms White Chocolate Granola Bars. Take that girls!! :)
Little Sis asked me as she was unpacking her lunch - why did you give me that extra bread? I don't need that extra bread, it's too much! But come the end of lunch, she had the nerve to ask me, "Mommy, I need more bread because I have sauce left over!" Just couldn't help but crack up. Kids!!

I was all excited to come up with a substitute for those Trader Joe's Organic Mini Cheese Sandwich Crackers I had accidentally bought that said "Made on shared equipment with peanuts" with this homemade version - yet another use for MOMveeta Cheese. But they didn't turn out quite as successful as I hoped. Though they are delicious if eaten immediately, they get soggy if left sitting in a baggie for a couple hours. Big Sis ate hers despite. She said they were a little soggy during her snack time but probably not as soggy as when lunch time came for Little Sis about an hour after, so hers came back untouched. Sorry guys! Next time this will just have to be a yummy at-home snack made on the spot. But don't they look so yummy? :)

The lunches look yummy (and oh, so cute!). My favorite thing about your post is that you go to school once a week and read to the girls during their lunch- what a special event for everyone!! Love it so much.
