The dreaded C word...

...conferences. (what did you think I was going to say?!?)

It's conferences week at my school, which means it's going to be a long week. We have to stay until 8pm Tuesday and Thursday even if your conferences are finished before then... fair's fair I guess, some people have more students than others. Honestly, I usually don't mind the conferences themselves. For the most part, I enjoy talking to the parents and usually have lots of great things to share. It's just the time and exhaustion that comes along with them. Sooo... I'll be at school from 7am-8pm tomorrow, meaning I plan to eat all 3 of my meals there. Ohh joy. At least I packet myself some goodies. Here they are:

Raisin Bran, banana, skim milk.

Baked potato soup with cheddar cheese on top, saltines and wheat bread for dipping in the soup, cheese for the crackers, applesauce, juice.

Turkey and cheddar on wheat; saltines; corn. I found these single serve corn dishes in the freezer section... not entirely healthy (they are in a 'buttery sauce') but they are delish and its a way to add some veggies in my packed meals (can't eat raw.)

Wish me luck... and survival :):)

Short week this week!

No school this Friday... funny how the knowledge of just one less day makes even the beginning of the week better. Here's my lunch for tomorrow:
I forgot to buy bananas :( (the one fresh fruit I can eat) so I will make due with some applesauce (not pictured) Chex cereal (rice/corn mixed together), Allayne's wrap with turkey and cheese, fruit snacks, vanilla wafers with Nutella :)

Happy Monday Everyone!

That's a wrap!

I have a confession to make.

I ate hot lunch this week. Out of sheer lack of options to pack a lunch, I decided I'd just eat hot lunch. It was mini corn dogs. Confession #2: they were delicious. Do you ever eat something that you know is disgusting, yet that disgustingness just makes it all that much more delicious? Yeah it was like that. Unfortunately, not only was I hungry about 2 hours later, my stomach was queasy all afternoon.

Lesson learned, here's tomorrow's lunch:
Wrap: salami, pepperoni, pizza sauce and mozzarella in a delicious rosemary and olive oil wrap, Mott's fruit snacks, a banana, a few chips, juice, and a piece of a brownie. These brownies are made at a local grocery store, they are called Bad Boy Brownies, and they are to die for. So good, you only need about an inch square and its plenty.

Meat-Free Friday

It's Lent, so here is my meat-free meal for tomorrow:

Classic natural peanut butter and grape jelly on whole wheat-white bread, simply fruit roll, wheat crackers, cheddar cheese spread, granola, pudding, applesauce, juice.

Plain and Simple

I pack my lunch at night, because at 5:20am, when I wake up, I'm usually not functioning well enough to pack a cohesive lunch... but then again, who is at that time of the morning? Anyways, I just wasn't up to making a cutesy lunch, so I went for simple favorites:

Honey turkey breast and sharp cheddar cheese on whole wheat-white bread, simply fruit roll, cereal bar, cheese crackers, 2 cookies, a banana and a juice. Yum.

A Spring-y Lunch

Can you tell I'm desperate for spring? I dug through my mini cookie cutters tonight for spring type shapes... I've got fall, Halloween, tons of Christmas/winter ones... not so much on the spring, so here's what i could come up with:

Peanut butter and honey on whole wheat-white bread, flat bread crisp crackers with cheddar cheese spread, puffy popcorn, a couple of fudge stripe cookies, a banana, a juice, and some flower(ish) fruit leather cut outs for a little spring time feeling!

Spring is... almost here!

I live in Wisconsin. Spring likes to play tricks with us... 3 weeks ago it was 45 degrees, then the following week (which just so happened to be our spring break) we got dumped with 18 inches of snow. No joke. We're finally almost out from under that blanket of snow, it has been in the upper 30's to low 40's (which feels like a heat wave after a Wisconsin winter!) and... I think spring might actually be on it's way this time! So in honor of our hopefully soon spring, here is a nice spring-y lunch!

Tomorrow's lunch and after school snack.

Can you tell I've been into wraps lately?!? Honey turkey and sharp cheddar on a wrap, yogurt covered pretzels, a banana, 2 cookies, a few veggie chippers, fruitables juice and water to drink.

After school snack: natural applesauce, sea salt flat bread thins with cheddar cheese spread, 2 cookies, simply fruit roll... not pictured, my daily Diet Coke :)
