Thanksgiving Reuben and Mac n' Cheese Lunch

Today is the last day of school for the girls before Thanksgiving (wait, I feel like it was JUST their last day of school before track out a few weeks ago!) and I wanted to send 'em with a special lunch since I really haven't been doing "special lunches" lately. Well, Little Sis got one at least, because she goes to school an hour later. Big Sis only got half a special lunch. Sorry girl! lol.

A little while back, I bought some fun Thanksgiving pasta and today was the day to put it to use. Little Sis has been excited about it for days, maybe even a week now. All it takes is saying the word "pasta" with that one.

So here it is, a turkey Reuben lunch with Mac n' Cheese, only it's actually a corned beef Reuben in our EasyLunchboxes. :)

In this lunch:
  1. Reuben on rye complete with corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing
  2. Carrots and ranch
  3. What Lisa Cooks' One Pot Mac and Cheese made with turkey-shaped pasta
  4. Strawberries
  5. Pringles Chips in our Blue Avocado reusable snack bag
  6. Chips Ahoy Chewy Cookies
And here's a close up of the mac and cheese since I didn't want the heat to escape her Thermos Funtainer. As Little Sis noted, the shapes look much better before cooking them. :) You can find this pasta, in packs of 4, on here at this link on Amazon or simply visit World Market where I got mine.
