Lunch Made Easy: Christmas Dinner

What a busy morning! I just got back from Little Miss's school - today is their last day before break. I went because I dropped her off lunch, warm. :)

Let me explain - Today at her school, all the kids are partaking in "Christmas Dinner" for lunch. The school is providing free of charge for all students Ham, Potatoes & Gravy, Corn, Rolls, and misc Desserts. Since I already know they cannot guarantee me that the food does not have peanuts, peanut warnings, or been cross-contaminated in their kitchens I always make her lunches.

She was bumming because she wanted to have lunch just like everyone else (minus a few other students with allergies too). So I surprised her with a lunch just like the other kids, that I know is safe for her, and dropped it off so it'd be warm and ready to eat for lunch time. She was so thrilled!!

Little Miss has ham, mashed potatoes (no gravy, she doesn't like it), sweet corn, an applesauce bread muffin, and I snuck in a babybel cheese with our *Advent Lunches* countdown number on it ~ 2 days left!

(I also dropped off in a small seperate container a chococlate & strawberry cake piece for dessert.)

She was particularly excited because they also get to sit with their fourth grade buddies at lunch today, so that was one of the main reasons she was originally bummed - because she wanted to eat a lunch just like her buddy's. :) I'm so glad I was able to make that happen for her!!

Happy Holidays Everyone!!


  1. What a wonderful thing to do for your daughter! I bet she was thrilled. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful lunch ideas!!!

  2. Aw, that's awesome :) I thought it was a brownie when I commented on FB - but the muffin sounds even better, yum :)

  3. Thank you both. :-)
    She loved it and ate every bit.

    She said she and her buddy ate together and had a great time. The whole day was great from the sounds of it (class party, etc.)

  4. Aw, what a sweet mommy and what a lucky girl :)
