Anyhoo, the upside. Leftovers! Lunch becomes really easy to pack and I know the girls will gobble it up. (They have access to microwaves at their school, so they can heat up stuff.) I used a little creative licence on this one and really stretched the Asian food to cover a little Japanese too.
Both girls have beef and broccoli with rice, cucumber and carrot rolls, bell pepper slices, mandarin oranges, an Asian pear, rice crispy sushi and fig newtons (they are clearly not Asian). And a box of apple juice.
Rice Crispy Treat sushi is totally easy to make. I make homemade rice crispy treats to control the ingredients, then I cut and roll them in to a thin 2 inch by 3 inch strip. Then you can layer fruit leather, swedish fish...what ever gummy, sticky stuff you have on hand. I used just swedish fish. What a fun treat, right?!
For snack they have Cheese It crackers and apple slices.
