Small Child went back to school in the middle of last week and I feel like I'm only just now getting back into the swing of things. I'm feeling very sad about the end of summer, so am trying to concentrate on all the lovely things coming up this term - Halloween, Bonfire Night, and even *whispers* Christmas! Yes, I went there, sorry! I promise not to go all Christmassy on you yet though, despite seeing Christmas stuff in the shops in August!
I'm working on several reviews of some lovely lunch-packing products which will be coming up on the blog in the next few weeks, and I have photos of the lunches I've already made so far this term sitting on the camera waiting to be uploaded, so in the meantime I thought it was about time I got back to sharing the rest of my alphabet lunches. The last alphabet lunch I shared was based on the letter Q, so today's lunch is based on the letter R.
In this lunch, which was packed in our Laptop Lunches Bento Box, Small Child had a Rainbow Rice salad (Rice, Red pepper, yellow pepper, cucumber and Raisins), decorated with a Rooster and a Red crayon pick, Rolls of Roast Beef, decorated with Rocket picks and a Robot Cupcake Ring and a Red Babybel cheese, decorated with a letter R cut into the wax, made Royal with the addition of a crown pick, and popped into a Red silicone cup. For 'pudding' he had a Rainbow of fruit (Raspberries, Red and green grapes and clementine segments) plus a little Rainbow container filled with Rainbow yoghurt coloured Raisins. I decorated the fruit with a Rabbit pick and some R alphabet picks and added a Rooster fork for the Rice.
Small Child ate all of this lunch, so I'm guessing he enjoyed it! Can you think of any R foods or obvious R words that I missed?
