At my son's annual I.E.P. meeting a few weeks ago, one of the school staff told me about a conversation she had with The Kid:
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: An astronaut and a paleontologist.
Q: What would you eat in space?
A: My mom would pack food for me!
Yes. Yes, she would.
Today's lunch is ready for blast off with a couple of hot dog aliens (turkey dogs and spaghetti) in silver flying saucers (cupcake liners), another in a long running series of lunch box foods that adults won't eat cold, but kids will gobble up, grapes with food pick rings, an astronaut sticker claiming the pretzels for all humankind, cookies in the shape of a rocket and the number 42 made from the raspberry and lemon version of my Creamsicle Cut Outs, all of which is packed in an Easy Lunchbox. Apple juice is in a reusable juice box on the side.
If you do manage to leave the planet today, make sure you don't forget your towel.
In remembrance of Douglas Adams, an author who took me across a galaxy only he could have imagined.
I'm sharing my interplanetary lunch with:
- What's for Lunch Wednesday hosted by Shannon of Bento Lunch Net
- and Margot of Coffee and Vanilla for her Healthy Lunch Box round up. (This month I promise to remember to email you my submission!) and
- The UFO bento round up at BentOnBetterLunches.
