Lunches October 10th - 14th

Only three lunches to share this week. Monday was Columbus Day so Boogs did not have school. Today he is buying the school lunch for the first time. I am going to have lunch with him to see if actually eats any of it.
A Monkey Among Us lunch - Pb&j monkey sandwich, yogurt, monster costume veggies, "Happy Tuesday" banana. 

If I Built A Car lunch - boiled egg car, Robert the Robot onigiri (rice ball), soy sauce, salad, and oranges. Unfortunately, Boogs did not put the lid back on the soy sauce container and it spilled all over the inside of his lunchbox. I cannot get the soy sauce smell out of there. Any suggestions? This is Boogs’ favorite book. He loves to look at the details of the car’s design and talk about what improvements he would make to the car.

My Garden lunch - pb&j flower and bunny sandwiches, cheese flowers & shells, chocolate bunny graham crackers, broccoli "jellybean" tree, berries with kiwi flowers. Boogs wants a garden like the girl in this book. Her garden has chocolate bunnies, she uses seashells as seeds, and flowers are able to grow in the place of ones just picked. Boogs told me what food to use for the jellybean tree. He likes to help create these lunches.
