After seeing the lunch menu at Gabby's school (comprised mainly of the brown food group, i.e. corn dogs, chicken nuggets, french fries, potato chips, etc.), I decided to pack lunches for her. We're now entering the second month of school and I've been clean out of ideas, aside from the quintessential PB&J, so I went on a hunt for ideas and this is what I found: The Lunch Boxes and Snacks Cookbook (chalk full of colored pictures, which I like in a cookbook). So far it hasn't been a let down. The ideas are great and Gabby has been excited about her lunches, which was the whole point of getting the book.
Why I care about having creative lunches for Gabby: Well, because I remember when my mom would send jack-o-lantern sandwiches with me to school (a sandwich with a face cut out showing the orange cheese in the middle).
