Baby It's Cold Outside

Well, the snow is finally here.  It's just not sticking.  But the freezing temps inspired today's lunches, I really wanted a lunch that would warm the girls from the inside out, and that had lots of fiber to keep them full.  We still have our fingers crossed for a good storm tonight and in the meantime we'll enjoy the charming feeling of living in a virtual snow globe.

Today's lunches are packed in Lunch Bots, they are great metal containers if you don't want to use plastic.  They come in all sorts of shapes and configurations, and are color coded.  I'm using the orange box, it is medium in size and has a center divider.  We also have the blue, which is the same size, but not divided.  The medium size isn't huge, but it's the perfect size to go along with a cup of soup or a thermos of pasta.

I also used 1 cup sized Klip It containers, you can find these containers at major retailers and The Container Store for about $4.00, and they are made of BPA free plastics.  Also, on a side note all of my containers go in the dishwasher on the top shelf, I haven't got time to hand wash a bunch of stuff...I need it to make the lunches!
Today's lunch is Chicken Noodle Soup, carrot flowers, cucumber butterflies, orange wedges, a granola bar and some chocolate bear cookies.  Both girls have an organic chocolate milk to drink.
