Pizza Lunchables for Two, Munchkins for One

Monday lunches have GOT to be easy because Monday mornings are hard enough. Girls said they wanted some pizza lunchables today and I was happy to oblige. The one on the left has Dunkin Donuts' Blueberry Cake Munchkins for a treat but the other does not because *someone* ate their treat on Friday without finishing lunch and wasn't even CLOSE! So per our house rule, no treat for you the following day! Sorry Charlie!

In this lunch:
  1. Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Pizza Rounds with Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce and Shredded Mozzarella Cheese from Trader Joe's
  2. Organic carrot chips from Trader Joe's (cute using my wavy cutter from Pampered Chef) with Marzetti's Simply Dressed Ranch Dressing
  3. Munchkins for Little Sis and Peeled Snacks' Apple Berry Clusters
  4. Whole Milk Organic Vanilla Yogurt from Trader Joe's with some shaved Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Chocolate Chips
  5. Simply Sun Chips 
Here are some close ups. :)

Simple Sandwich Lunch and a Ho Ho

It's been a week of particularly rough mornings thanks to springing forward- ie no one wants to get out of bed, including me! Who woulda thought that just 1 measly hour could be so painful? And try as I might, I just don't have it in me to pack lunches the night before, so my lunches have been REALLY quick and simple. Nothin' fancy, but it does the trick. And this lunch box usually comes home emptied to me, so that works for me! Here's today's lunch for Little Sis. Big Sis once again wanted to buy the school lunch. After all, it is National Breakfast week. Maybe I'll make her a breakfast for lunch lunch tomorrow - IF I can drag myself outta bed! ;)

In this lunch:
  1. Archer Farms' Hard Salami from the Super Target deli counter with Applegate Black Forest Ham and Muenster Cheese on Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread
  2. Trader Joe's 12-grain mini crackers with Laughing Cow Cream Swiss Cheese
  3. Strawberries
  4. SmartFood White Cheddar Popcorn
  5. Hostess Ho Ho - why not. ;)

Springing Forward with Lunchables

This morning I called up to my girls: "Come on down for breakfast before it gets yummy warm food cold!!" I blame this entirely on being forced to "spring forward". 

I somehow managed to get lunch packed (this is Little Sis', Big Sis wanted to buy lunch and I just sent in some snacks) and get them on their way to school - ON TIME no less on this sluggish Monday morning. It's a small victory, but a victory nonetheless. :)

Easy Peasy DIY Lunchables in @easylunchboxes... for when it's not so easy to "spring forward" ;)
