The Lunchbox #3

I need to start packing duplicate lunches for me–these look pretty good!

I was a little nervous about sending a turkey sandwich, as I recently read that there wasn’t an insulated lunch bag on the market that kept food the right temperature for the right amount of time. So I probably went a little overboard with the coldpacks today!

Lunchbox #3

dates
cooked sweet potato cubes
turkey and cheese sandwich
pita crackers and hummus
Fruitabu fruit roll up
milk

The Result (what came home): sandwich crusts (that drives me nuts, why don’t kids eat crusts? I refuse to cut them off), and a few crackers/dab of hummus. And, things were still chilled at the end of the day, so I can relax about that. I used a thin flat ice pack that pretty much covers the whole bottom of the lunchbox, and an additional small one on the side. The food that was left felt like it had just come out of the fridge.

Also–Moms, I need help. The little fox is still a little lukewarm about preschool. Any tips?

    Lance eats his crust…matter of fact he even asks for the first and last piece of bread. Balin will eat right up to it and be done when all is left is the crust. Sometimes he will eat it, but he leaves it more often then not. strange…
