Busy, Busy, Busy

I seem to have started a lot of projects as of late, which, unfortunately does not translate into getting lots of projects done. Instead, it just means that I have several things going at once, and while sounding busy and being a multitasker sounds good in theory, it really comes done to nothing actually getting completed. It's just a whole lot of frustrating 'works in progress'. I have sworn that by the weekend, something will be completed and major progress will be made somewhere else. I'm cracking the whip, starting with this post on the blog while I catch up on The Walking Dead.. you know, because I'm certain those are the two most important things on my list... right?!

Also on the agenda? The Halloween costume. Stay tuned for that! And, we are in process of redoing our half bathroom (mainly because I'm putting off doing the main one). And by redoing, I me reDIYing. Yuck. Wish us luck. We have all the materials and the room is prepped, so on to the next step with that. Oh, and another project? Cutting down trees. You know.. without a gas chainsaw and without a truck to haul all the brush and branches and without a stump grinder to take care of those major trip hazards in the yard. Yup. It's going fantastic.. insert sarcasm! Oh yeah, on to lunches.. here are a three from this week. Enjoy.

Apple Picking & A Patch

We were very fortunate to have a beautiful warmish day on Sunday, so we took full advantage and headed to Leaman's Green Apple Barn for one last trip this fall. We lucked out that we went when we did because it was the last weekend for apple picking. Let me tell you, my kiddo played hard with her friends, and helped this mama pick a peck of apples, too. So, not only did she have a blast, but she earned her first fun patch for her Daisy uniform. Now, if only they had a patch for baking apple pies, we'd be set! I figured I'd tie in lunch today with our fun yesterday, and remind her how proud I am of her.

Apple bento
Peanut butter & apple butter sandwich, candy corn, frozen strawberry Chobani yogurt, James apple (fresh picked), and celery.

kindergarten snack box
PM Snack - Swiss and cheddar cheese, mini pretzel crisps, and candy corn.

Pizza Sticks

On Fridays, I always send popcorn as the afternoon snack. But, I realized the last 2 Fridays were all about pizza too. Last Friday, it was a skewer style pizza stick lunch that was inspired by pizza. Then, today, there was actually leftover pizza sticks. My kiddo's school has a Papa John's pizza event once a month, where a percent of sales comes back to the school. That night was last night. So, not only did I not have to cook dinner last night, but lunch was literally 'in the box' too. Bonus!

Pizza Sticks Easylunchboxes Bento
Pizza skewers with whole grain bread, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, orange and red bell pepper, and black olives, pizza sauce, mini grapes, and Snickers bite.

Kindergarten snack box
Popcorn and Clif Kidz Fruit & Veggie stick.

Then, the leftovers lunch from this Friday. Popcorn, as mentioned above, was the afternoon snack this day too.
