January 14-17 lunches

Another fun filled week has flown by. I swear as the school year rolls on time speeds up. I blink and the week is over. This may be due to the lack of sleep that comes with the early wake-up calls of public school making your week into 1 reallly long day, but I digress....back to lunches.

Monday  - Captain America

In this lunch:
  • Star Jelly toast sandwich with Captain America white cheddar cheese on top
  • Babybel cheese shield
  • Carrots "A"
  • Gala apple shield
Tuesday - Let's Eat Pooh! Happy Birthday A. A. Milne
Friday there will be a linky party over at Biting The Hand That Feeds You
At the end of this post you'll find the linky party for anything A.A. Milne related, not just Pooh.
 “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh 

Green Monkey gets to eat Pooh (It never gets old)  -
  • Winnie The Pooh jelly toast with cheese and black olives on top
  • Hotdog tree with broccoli and cauliflower
  • Pooh in his honey pot made from a hollowed out gala apple and cheese letters
  • 3-2-1 cake from Duncan Hines with Teddy graham Pooh bears and cheese Pooh letters
Tigger: Hello, Rabbit! I'm Tigger. T-I double guh...
Rabbit: Please! Please! Don't spell it! Oh dear, will you just... just look at my beautiful garden!
Tigger: Yyyyyuck! M-messy, isn't it?
Rabbit: Messy? Messy? It's ruined! It's ruined, Tigger! Why won't you ever stop bouncing?
Tigger: Why? That's what Tiggers do best! Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! 

-A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.”
A.A. Milne

Wednesday - Happy Birthday Martin Luther King Jr. !
 I posted this separately on Wednesday but wanted to keep it in the weekly round-up for this week. Here's the original post.
In this lunch:
  • Heart Jelly toast heart sandwich with  Martin Luther King Jr. cheddar cheese on top 
  • Carrots with fruit leather letters

Thursday -Penguins
Blue Monkey was learning about penguins at school today. When I mentioned it for lunch Green Monkey wanted one too instead of a Benjamin Franklin birthday tribute. Happy Birthday Benjamin Franklin I hope you liked penguins.
In this lunch:
  • Igloo waffle - after cutting the igloo, I buttered it and added syrup then flipped it over so the gooey bit was unseen. Powdered sugar and marshmallows for snow and of course he eats goldfish.
  • Chocolate waffle Penguin - I added 1 tsp of unsweet cocoa and a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips into the waffle batter. Sprayed a penguin cookie cutter and cooked on the skillet like a pancake. Added a little frosting and candy eye.
  • Goldfish
  • PB celery
  • Grapes
  • Babybel cheese
  • Black Olive Penguin - I used this tutorial from Serious Eats, large olives, babybel cheese, and baby carrots
In this lunch:
