everything but the kitchen sink?

Contents: 'baby carrots' (found the two giants on the left in our newest bag of baby carrots...I think maybe they're mom&dad carrots instead), salad with last part of the egg roll, tortilla strips, celery, almonds, broccoli, and French dressing. Sugar free chocolate pudding for dessert.

Going back to school after a five day weekend (the fifth day being an unplanned snow day) is not fun. What is fun? Lunch.

Contents: Salad underneath Red Beet eggs and part of a veggie egg roll we discovered at the grocery store (pack of 5 to bake), a layer of leftover mac&cheese, a cup of pears. Soup on the side in a thermos.

Question: is it just my thermos, or is there a trick to keeping things warm inside? (Or are my expectations too high?)

Comfort Food

Today was one of those days when Comfort Food was a must.

So I turned to the old stand-by, macaroni and cheese (only with penne pasta instead of elbow macaroni). My version of Mac&cheese includes just about everything we have stocked in the kitchen... ;)

Leftovers will be eaten either this week or frozen for later lunches (so this is sort of on topic).

I like that Mac&Cheese can still be colorful!

(lazy, non-bento lunch)

Strawberries in tapioca pudding, oriental noodles with 'chinese-style' bagged veggies, goldfish for a morning snack, and carrots.

Most of the time, my snack is included in the pictures of my lunch, because I stick it in my lunch box until I get hungry - I eat breakfast at 7, and don't eat lunch until 12:45.

Shh, we're not technically allowed to eat anywhere but the it okay for me to make an exception?
