I’ve been waiting so, so long to pack my kids lunches. 🙂
I lived in Japan, teaching English
a few 10 years ago. (bahh – 10 years…it seems like yesterday! I am sooo old!)
The Japanese have the cutest, I mean CUTEST stuff. Every single thing in the country is stinking adorable.
かわいい Kawaii – lovable, cute, adorable. It’s taken seriously there. No joke.
The road construction signs are little cartoon turtles with hard hats, for goodness sakes. And of course the lunches are no exception. I didn’t think to stock up on the tons of adorable lunch making supplies for my kids that didn’t yet exist. (I did snag a few things, but not enough!)
I know, I know. I’m 100 percent sure packing lunches is a job that I’ll soon find tedious and not want to do. But, right now, the kids are little and I’m enjoying it. I’ve only been doing it for a few months and I know in a few years I will tire of it. So, I’m getting the most out of it now.
Plus since the kids are little, when I make the lunches cute and exciting, they think I’m the COOLEST! (And I like being the coolest!) I’m a lunch time hero! Bunny shaped hard-boiled eggs and cheese with smiley faces will likely not be as hip when the kids are 12. 🙂 I guess when they are 12 they’ll be making their own lunches anyway. (They’d better be!)
So, I’m soaking up as many bunny eggs and smiley faced cheeses as I can now.
Look at these awesome supplies that I got on Amazon.
I mean, for real! How easy can packing a cute lunch be?
Thank you internet!
The Egg Molds are super cheap and so easy to use.
I hard boil the eggs and then cool them off under cold water, just until they are cool enough to peel. I pop them in the molds and stick them in the fridge. The next morning, while packing lunches, I just take them out of the molds.
DONE AND DONE!
Stinking cute, right??!! Not to mention cheap, easy and healthy!!
And the Ham and Cheese Cutters are just as inexpensive and just as simple to use.
I make homemade little ‘lunch-ables’ with cute meats and cheeses. Don’t call me super mom – seriously, it takes only minutes to put together two of these lunches. (I use the scraps on my husband’s sandwiches! NO WASTE!)
I figure since they are only little once and in awe of vegetable-shaped cheese with cute faces when they are little, why not?? 🙂
I mean, just look at that broccoli-shaped cheese winking at you!! How can you resist?
Go and make a cute lunch. You know you want to!
