Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot.
I realise today is the 7th November, so I'm two days late with this, but sadly for me my laptop died a couple of days ago so I've been stuck offline. Thanks to my lovely husband, all is now mended and fully backed up so any future problems should be sorted a little quicker. Fingers crossed for no more issues in the future though!
Back to the subject of lunch; I made Small Child a special themed lunch to celebrate the bonfire night this week. We went to a firework display on Saturday, but still managed to wave a few sparklers on the night of the 5th itself. I thought it was a perfect opportunity for a themed lunch (any excuse!).
In his bonfire lunchbox Small Child had some pretzel sticks (the bonfire), some red pepper, yellow pepper and orange cheese cutouts (flames), and a rice star surrounded by cubed cucumber and red pepper (a firework?)
In his second box he had some 'firework' shaped frozen yoghurt blocks, with a few 'firework' sprinkles (stars and rainbow strands) to sprinkle over them. He also had a fruit 'firework' made from a clementine topped with a couple of kiwi stars. He happily ate the rest of the kiwi with his breakfast, thus avoiding the dreaded waste again.
Not a scrap was left when I picked him up from school, so I'm assuming this lunch was a success! I look forward to resuming my daily posts from now on, as the holidays are now over until Christmas and hopefully the laptop will remain in full working order!
