The girls opted to buy lunch at school today so I'll just post this hot dog lunch from a couple weeks back. I don't send in hot dogs very often, but we had some left over from a cookout the weekend before, so I thought, "Why not?" The girls did love 'em!
Oh, and since some people were asking, I sent these hot dogs in straight out of the toaster oven, onto the buns, into the EasyLunchboxes. Usually, doing this makes the bread soggy, but in this case, it reminded me of the perfectly steamed hot dogs and buns from the streets of NYC, plus I was lazy and didn't want to bother with wrapping them any further. :) I did include an ice pack in each lunch to keep the GoGurt cold, but tried to keep it as far away from the hot dog itself. The girls reported that though the hot dot wasn't hot, it wasn't cold either. It was warm. Ish. And they ate it all up as you can see at the end of this post. :)
- Oscar Meyer's Angus Selects Bun Length Hot Dogs on Nature's Own White Wheat Bread, which ketchup (squirted on the bun first, under the hot dog) and then with shredded cheese for Little Sis
- Baby Cut Carrots with Marzetti's Simply Dressed Ranch Dressing
- Sensible Portions Veggie Straws with Sea Salt
- Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters for Big Sis and Strawberries for Little Sis
- Yoplait GoGurts
- Mini Chips Ahoy for a treat
Here's a close-up of Big Sis'. After I had taken the above picture, I realized that Big Sis was not to get her treat today because she ate her treat without finishing her entree so sadly no treat for her this day.
And Little Sis':
Hot dogs are one of my food weaknesses and I'm seriously contemplating eating one for breakfast now! lol.
I'd say lunch went over pretty well, wouldn't you? Big Sis is one of those kids who almost always leaves just one little bite (argh!) and Little Sis said that she ran out of time. Fair enough! :)
