An "Eggstra" Special Lunch
This fall I made a fun lunch for my daughter at least once a month... however, as winter wore on and I anticipated the birth of my fourth child, both my energy and my creativity declined.
Now, with a 7 week old, I'm still lacking in the creativity department, and so, I need to seek inspiration from others. When I saw the "Egg-celent Lunch," on Dixie Delights, I knew that I had found the perfect inspiration for a lunch that would make my daughter feel "eggstra special."
The best part was that I didn't really need any special supplies (except plastic eggs) and I could use whatever lunch items I found in my pantry and fridge.
This lunch contains: strawberries, grapes, cashew butter and jelly sandwiches, chick peas, shredded carrots, ham, dates, raisins with pumpkin seeds, goldfish cookies, and heart shaped cereal. On the top of the carton I wrote, "An Eggstra Special Lunch for an Eggstra Special Girl."
My daughter loved her lunch. She said that EVERYONE loved her lunch. She said that even the principal loved her lunch.
She also said that I'm awesome... Maybe this will inspire me to get back on the fun lunch bandwagon. After all, it's not every day that your 7 year old tells you you're awesome :)
