I've just realised that we are into the third week of term and I forgot to share Small Child's first day of term lunch! Not that it was hugely exciting or anything, but he was pleased with it! At his request, I packed it in our new TUMTUM Bugs lunch box, and used the matching water bottle and ladybird lunch bag too (which I reviewed in yesterday's post).
In this lunch Small Child had quesadillas, cut into circles and decorated with alphabet picks spelling out 'YEAR' and the number 2, (representing his new school year), which I cut out from the tortilla using a cookie cutter before cooking. The quesadilla was made from a tortilla wrap, spread with tomato puree and stuffed with grated cheddar cheese and pieces of ham to make a 'pizza quesadilla'. On the side he had raw carrot and yellow pepper sticks, a clementine, broken into segments, a small apple and a treat of some Organix alphabet biscuits. I separated the vegetables from the fruit with a grass shaped silicone divider, and decorated the fruit with a blue crayon pick and a ladybird pick, to match the lunch box. While I was making this lunch Small Child was telling me how he'd once had an apple with the leaf still attached (which he was very excited about!) so I added a leaf pick to his apple too.
Small Child loved the leaf in the apple, it's always the little things! Here he is before setting off for school, my big Year 2 boy! As you can see, his new ladybird lunch bag is just the cutest thing ever, almost as cute as him!
How time flies, it seems just yesterday that he went off to school for the first time! Here's his first day post from two years ago, I'm pleased to see that both my lunch making and my photography skills have improved since then! I can't believe how small he was either, awwww!
