John made lunch (more or less)!

Thanks to some extra hours at work a couple of weeks ago I was able to say "yes" when John started pleading with me to get him one of Pottery Barn Teen's All-N-One lunch kits after he saw one that someone else was using. It helped that the pattern he had decided on was on sale, of course.

It arrived Wednesday just before he got off the bus and as soon as he saw it he started deciding what exactly had to go in and where. Basically, he made his lunch! (I just opened packages!)
Clockwise from top left: Vitamin & Omega-3 Gummies, yogurt raisins, veggie straws, leftover boneless garlic parmesan wings with dipping sauce, granola bar

Tommy & Tuppence for Dame Agatha's birthday!

Today marks the 124th birthday of Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie! I wasn't originally planning on making anything special to take to work tonight, but I couldn't resist celebrating with some Tommy & Tuppence. I've been watching the old episodes on Acorn (and getting giddy about the reboot scheduled for next year to help celebrate her 125th!). 
In my Laptop Lunchbox I have chicken thighs with garlic parmesan sauce, provolone Tommy & Tuppence and colby jack letters and heart. In the bottom right is cottage cheese. The bottom left is mixed vegetables with the cheese bits left over from cutting out the letters.

Snickerdoodle Muffins Snacky Lunch

John still loves "snacky" lunches and was thrilled when I came home with packs of mini snickerdoodle and pumpkin muffins the other day. He eeny-meeny-miney-moed the snickerdoodle ones for today's lunch. He also has mini Slim Jims, grapes, veggie straws, his vitamin & Omega 3 gummies, and an unpictured peach yogurt cup.

Doctor Who : "I Am The Doctor ..."

John's lunch for today came from the most recent episode of Doctor Who, "Robots of Sherwood." I'm not going to worry about those who avoid spoilers since the clip the lunch is from has been made public by the BBC and, really, doesn't give much away:

In his PlanetBox Rover (all decked out in custom DW magnets) he has a small bologna and cheese "Doctor 12" sandwich with a cheese speech bubble and spoon, grapes, Scrabble Jr CheezIts on top of 12 Veggie Straws, Alphabet Cookies with 12 fruit snacks (and his multivitamin gummies), and 12 grapes:


And, of course, he asked me to relabel another bottle! (If the video from Instagram doesn't embed below, you can just click HERE to see it!)

Plants vs Zombies : Crazy Dave

Today John has Crazy Dave from the Plants vs Zombies games in his PlanetBox Shuttle! Dave is drawn on Empire Jack cheese and his name is cut out of the same. They're sitting on a bed of Doritos with salsa on the side (which is as close as John gets to Dave's beloved tacos). To the left are grapes and pepperoni slices skewered with zombie hand picks. He also has a yogurt cup in his bag along with his sugar-free lemonade.
